What kind of hardware??
windows xp came installed on the computer when i bought it around 1 yr ago. when i try to install my digital camera or a memory stick, or any other thing for that matter, it lets me install the software, then when i plug in the device it says the drivers were not installed and even if i go back through and try to use the disc to get the drivers it says they are not there. i have tried everything i know, which is not alot, but still it wont let me install anything that connects through a usb connection. i have installed a printer/scanner/copier, but it wouldnt install it completely, it prints and scans fine but there is a memory card slot on the printer and it wouldnt install the driver to read the memory card. its comes up as error code 28 on the new hardware wizard.
