Appreciate the opportunity to post here. After 12 years, numerous XP updates, and several users, my Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop had become so slow it was unusable. Reinstalling XP from original CDs has it running fast again but it's in 16 bit color and low resolution; the window size is too small to work with and Control Panel / Display doesn't give option for higher resolution. Also, can't connect to my DSL modem/router via Ethernet cable. I've been struggling with trying to install drivers for the video controller and LAN controller; it's not going well. The laptop can't seem to find the correct drivers on install CD marked "drivers". So I've tried moving drivers from the Dell Inspiron support site to USB stick in my Mac, then to laptop. Haven't given up but I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
