My computer isnt picking up the modem or internet

\015 Just rebooted my comp with windows xp home edition disk and now my computer cannot detect my modem internet or even my speakers. Any idea whats going on?\015

Answers :

Restart your PC once again without the disk on the drive. If stills don't work, then you may have to reinstall windows.
You're missing the software drivers. If you can get onto the internet from the computer still, start with a Custom Windows Update.

Just google Windows Update or launch it direct from Windows.

Make sure you check the boxes for Updated Hardware Drivers after the scan.

If they're still missing you can download them direct from the computer manufacturer.
