Search for Aida32. That will tell you everything about your system

Yeah; Aida is very good - I think ComputerFreak directed me to that; or somebody; and it does tell you everything. Most of which is useless.

thats irrelivent,if you have the original XP it was a lil buggy legal or not. sp1 refused the fckgw serial, there are lots of other keys for windows out there that work with SP1 & 2, however.

No they aren't, i have no idea where you get this info from, microsoft decided to allow pirated copies to update to sp2 so that people with pirated copies dont get worms and viruses because people wont update them and then affect people who have paid for there copies.
Also wmicrosoft keep no personal information from people updating.

Im very sure that all of the mentioned things can be supported if you look for the drivers.

Erm 99.99% of pc users will strongly disagree. Windows XP is a new standard in OS, Me was less stable than 98.

If its just the driver file and not an install file.

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware (tab) -> device manager

There should be an unknown device, double click this and go to update driver. Select driver manually and choose the file you downloaded.

Sit back and watch the magic.
