How do I ....?

make windows do a full search of all hardware? I have a laptop here, that normally ran windows me. I don't have that restore disc here, so I grabbed another one that I thought might work. (compaq doesn't label all their restore discs, one reason of many I hate them). Turns out this was a restore disc for another laptop model, one that runs xp. The system restore actually worked, and after a few reboots (there were a couple of system stop blue screens) it finally booted up into xp. Can I just go into the device manager and delete the various devices and make it rediscover everything, just to make sure it is using the right drivers for everything?
