I installed a operating system onto an old computer and now system restore is no longer an option?

I had a computer that ran the system "Windows XP Home Edition". I installed a program named "damn tiny windows" which is a glammed down version of "Windows XP Professional". I cannot get the audio to work and also my system restore is no longer an option in system tools. There are many missing drivers on this thing...What can I do now?

If you replaced the operating system with another, you'll have to reformat the drive and reinstall MS XPHome.

Try to update the drivers by going to the manufacturer website and downloading the proper drivers. Many programs in Windows interconnect with each other and a slimmed down version that wasn't properly done, will cause such errors. Device Doctor is a free program that will scan your drivers and update them accordingly. I am not sure about missing system restore. This link is from Microsoft about troubleshooting the System Restore issue http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302796/en-us.
