One thing you absolutely must know is what motherboard you've got as well as all your other hardware. Otherwise, locating drivers is impossible. This is expecially true when you work with something as arachaic as XP, which was around probably before the computer you received was manufactured.

Hello :)
That computer should have a DVD of its drivers.
If not, and if you can't know the brand of those uninstalled drivers, try:
DriverPack Solution
It shall search for uninstalled drivers on that PC and install the appropriate one automatically.
