More info please :D 

Are you sure it's a 3850? If it did not came with the install CD maybe your board it's not the one pictured in the box :p 

Did your XP installed any default drivers? You should try to remove them first and then reinstall the downloaded drivers.

You said "it fitted". How may I ask :p 

This vga is compatible with PCI-Express and your Motherboard doesn't have a PCI-Express slot? Is this right? :o 

If so, how "it fitted"?
