Cant connect recently formatted pc to the internet

  hhh123kid 17:34 02 Oct 2007

Hey, I recently formatted my pc (XP Pro) and now when I open network connections theres nothing there. I use an ethernet cable to connect my router to my network card but the pc doesnt react at all, however the light does come on on the card.. The only thing I can think of is that I bought the network card serperate to the pc and installed it myself. Would that make a difference?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Reload the drivers for your ISP Software.

Ok thanks, I havent got mine but my friend is on the same isp ad he has it. Another thing.. I put my own usb 2.0 ports into one of the slots but they dont seem to be working now either. Do extra usb ports need special drivers and are the specific to the brand?
