Ok, I will try to be short. I have a second hand HP Pavilion N5430 running Win ME. This is not a primary laptop, just a good one that gets a little use surfing and most of it's use on spreadsheets and documents. I created a problem tying to install a wireless card that leads me to beleive I have issues in the OS. Now for the problem. It is decided that the OS need to have a fresh re-load, but I have no origional disc for this machine. I have a Gateway and a HP that origionally ran ME, so I figured I could use these sets to re-load. No go. I saved all my drivers, but I am at a stand still. Any thoughts?
