Default Acted on your advice. Solved

Hi experts. Thanks for the good suggestions. Here's how it went:

1. First, I backed up the C: drive, made an image using CloneZilla. (Good tool, terrible user interface, + doesn't have yet NIC drivers for Intel Sandy Bridge).

2. I installed the WinXP SP3 upgrade.

3. In "Device Manager", I right-clicked the yellow sign for the missing driver for the Dynamode Silicon Image IDE storage controller, using their supplied CD. This time the system accepted the file and loaded the driver.

4. I then found at the Intel web site (couldn't find before) and downloaded an installation file for both the HD video and audio bus of the "6-Series" H67 chipset, and installed it - it went fine. Vendor 8086 (Intel), products 2805 and 0102. Interestingly, Google didn't find it, I found it on Bing.

All clear and go. many thanks to Cmetaphor, Ilya and JD.
