After a harsh trojan completely wrecked my operating system, I was forced to install Windows XP on this system. However, the tech that comes with this computer is configured for Windows Vista, and that brings us to my question:

Is it possible for me to get a working driver for this setup? I tried the website for my machine, and they gave me nothing. I tried installing a Vista/7 driver (dumb, but worth a shot I guess), and that didn't work.

Here's a few system specs to help:

OS: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP2

Manufacturer: eMachines
Model: EL1850G

Processor: Intel Celeron E3400
Memory: 2014 MB RAM

Direct X Version: 9.0

dxdiag reports that the driver currently being used on this computer is "the generic video driver".

Please help me with this.
