Welcome to the forum shino_aburami.

 

Your link does not open. Describe what is the error message in the device manager. Have you installed the appropriate drivers for audio, wireless, etc....?

What I see is a "Yellow Punctuation Mark" in the "Lenovo ACPI-Compliant Virtual Power Controller" located in the Device Manager....

 

When I've check under its properties tab it says under the device status - "Windows Cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" 

 

I believe I have installed the appropriate drivers because I have use the Drivers Installation CD included in the Laptop...

 

Thanks and GOD BLESS...

The problem might have arisen due to the installation of Vista drivers on XP environment, those drivers that came with your laptop are probably designed for Vista. Some of those drivers might work but it would create conflicts with other drivers, which you are expriencing now.

 

Try the link below to download the appropriate XP drivers for your G410

Uninstall first all the existing vista drivers.  Then install the XP drivers in adherence to the sequence(order) of drivers' installation as indicated in the user guide or manual that came with your laptop. Not following the sequence would result in conflicts with some drivers missing in the Device Manager.

 

Hope this suggestion helps
