Hello again all

Ive come to the conclusion that me and computers do not mix :P

Anyway here goes with another one of my many problems.

I got given a PC from my friend that weve upgraded slighty for my daughter to play her my little pony games on

Im struggling to find the drivers for this in order to get it on the net. I know its capable of going on the net as this is what my mate used it for.

System model is : IBM 830516G
System serial number : KBRGT65

Im not able to find out the mother board type on belarc advisor

Can anyone else help me at all?

1. operating system XP?

2. how are you trying to connect to the net?
USB modem? router via ethernet port or wireless?

Operating system is Windows XP yes Fruit Bat

Trying to connect from an Ethernet port to the router but im after the drivers in order for me to do this as ive had to do a fresh install on this and wipe the H/D clean

Hi,as I understand Lenovo now produce computers under the IBM badge, although IBM still cover the support, which is where my link lead you to.
Since that referred to model 8305-16g, I didnt know if that was your computer.
Does it look like this? click here

Yes m8 it did look like that until I changed the case.

Any ideas?

Hi, In that case I believe the first link I posted should give you all the information you need, also look on the left hand side for further details about it.
Hope that helps.
