Right. Think iv cracked it, I now have no yellow ! and when I look at msinfo32 in the search bar then click components and problem devices it is empty :)

Does this mean everything is right and it has all the drivers it needs or is there other ways to check?

The last few drivers were the card reader, I googled the driver number and I found a link to a download and it worked :)

So is this it? Have i successfully installed a laptop?

By the way, get rid of Vista, really memory hungry
Upgrade to Windows7!!!

To be fair, a decent spec machine can run Vista no problem.

Windows 7 is better though :)

My laptop is running windows 7 and its fast, this Dell is now 2GB RAM and with this clean install its a lot faster than it was before so my parents will be happy with it.

Jup, sound's like you're there mate. :)

I'm sure you've already said you've installed Adobe Flash Player so I'd chuck on Adobe Reader & Java as well.

Yeah flash player is on as it prompted me when I tried to load a YouTube video but i'll look at reader and java tonight, parents are happy though, they said it's like a new laptop :)
