You didn't provide us with any information about your system so I don't think anyone can give specific help here; you didn't even tell us what your graphic card is. Anyhow, usually you can always download your drivers from the manufacturer's website.

If you have absolutely no idea how to find out those info, then try DriverGuide.com. It should walk you through the whole thing. It can also scan your computer for which drivers you need.

Good luck! I can give more specific help if you can provide more information about your computer. Thanks!

Also, next time, I recommend you to keep a list of your system's drivers around, especially if you are planning to downgrade from Vista or 7 to XP, or just simply formatting XP.

Even if you aren't tech savvy, there are free softwares out there such as Double Drivers and Driver Max that allow you to view, backup, restore and even print out a list of all of computer's drivers.

I recommend you to install and run something like Double Drivers (free, of course) after you solved this problem. Who knows. It might save your computer some day. If you can do this yourself, though, then you don't need it.

By the way, just out of curiosity, why downgrade to XP and not upgrade to Windows 7?
