Ok, so after a battle with installing some crappy new ram which I promptly returned to the store the next day, I think it might have effected my computer in some weird way. When I open the device manager I dont get any listings at all, so I searched the microsoft knowledge base (KB) and found one solution, start the plug & play service. Thats great, but the PnP service is already running!

I tried opening an empty MMC and adding in the device manager snap-in but that didnt work either (didnt think it would). Ive restarted the pc aswell, no such luck. Do you think throwing in the XP cd and running the repair process on the installation would fix it?

Running WinXP Pro.

I returned it for a refund, no new ram, just my old system.

It never hurts to do a reinstall, unless your using a key that you "found". I found that a reinstall helps a lot of my comp problems, or even just shutting it down over night.
or make a backup of your curren system (northon ghost RLZ :D) than install fresh one and see if there's a difference :)
