Did your laptop come with a recovery disk? That'll have all the drivers on it already. You won't be installing a shiny new copy of XP, but it'll save you installing a multitude of drivers. ;)

Hmm, okay, did your laptop come with any software built-in to recover it? I'd be really surprised if there wasn't some way to restore it to its factory fresh state

Ok, I've been looking through the support for these E system laptops, and they are seriously rubbish.

Right, go to start -> run... and type "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes); click ok. Once it's loaded, take a screenshot, then attach to a post.

Hmm, looks like there's no recovery options whatsoever

You could try taking the driver from this page:

Code: Select all

PS: Upload screenshots as JPEG's instead of BMP's to save yourself the hassle
