I do have XP. I built my own computer awhile ago. It is 2.2 ghz, 2 gig ram, nividia 7900 gt 256mb video card, and a raptor hard drive. I have another software program that I use to burn dvd and cd. I thought if it came with the burner I might as well install it. Never again. Im not the greates whe it comes to device manager but I think Im ok working with the BIOS.
