Hello, I have an acer aspire (Model: M1610) which started to freeze on the starting up windows screen (Windows 7). I ended up reinstalling an XP CD just to wipe the system clean but because I have installed xp to the system, the Ethernet controller driver does not want to read the Ethernet cable to connect to the internet. If I can possibly use this thread to gather some help for this and maybe any other problems I may have with this in the future I would be grateful. I do not have internet access obviously on the other system which is making updating the drivers very hard. The only thing I am able to do is use another PC to grab the update and install it via memory stick.
