How do I go about finding out which mobo is in a pc so that the drivers for the onboard graphics/sound/lan card etc can be downloaded? The reason I ask is that I have been given a pc with win 2000 installed but the passwords have been lost (ex business machine that went bust) I want to re-format to put me on but I will lose all the drivers etc.
thanks for those links, but reading through them it would appear that they work from windows, the problem I have is the passwords to logon are not known, so have to try to gather the info from a command line via disk? The hdd will re-formated once I can get this info as winn 2000 is not registered to me and therefore cannot be used, the guy who owned the pc's has basically walked away from the business and his wife, she was left with them to disposs of but as she did not work in the office has no clue to the administrator passwords.
have now sorted, just re- formated and when I installed windows it seemed to pick up all the drivers needed!, wish I could get rid of the NEC screen that shows at boot up!!, BUT HAS IT CAUSED ANOTHER PROBLEM??????? click here
