Next time you do this, don't install the drivers until after you have installed SP2.

So my advice is this:

Reinstall Windows from scratch.
Before you do anything else, update to SP2 right away.
Now install motherboard drivers, chipset drivers, graphics drivers, sound drivers, other hardware drivers.

Reboot every time that one of the installations demands it. When your system is up and running again, report back and let me know if it worked.

It's entirely possible that SP2 disabled the drivers for both peripherals because they might not be WHQL validated, but you should still be able to use them, just by telling Windows to smeg off and do as you say, i.e. installing the drivers regardless of Windows warnings.

I don't know what I am doing wrong.  I reformatted ,  fresh install of xp pro , fresh install sp2,  device not listed in device manager.  If I manually install device it says "device cannot start" code 10. Before installing SP2 i went to device manager to check to see if it detected a ethernet adapter and it was there with an excamation point.  I didn't do anything with it I just continued to install SP2. After SP2 was installed the device was no longer there.

Have you tried going to the website of the motherboard manufacturer, searching for drivers for your motherboard?

You need those to get everything working properly and for SP2 to detect the hardware components.

So if your computer is manufactured by Dell, then you need to go to their website and search for the relevant drivers.

What make and model is your computer anyway?
