Attempting to format and reinstall a new version of Win XP on an emachine !I do not have the original motherboard drivers but have downloaded missing graphics, sound & chipset drivers from here click here I want to know is the LAN driver likely to be included in the chipset driver (it's only 1.3MB)or does Windows XP have it's own LAN driver that will work ?
The Chipset setup screen says it will enable Plug & Play INF support for Intel Chipsets Components.Does that inc. the LAN Port driver ?
This is in the Readme File :Will Enable the following: - Core PCI and ISAPNP Services - AGP Support - IDE/ATA33/ATA66/ATA100 Storage Support - SATA Storage Support - USB Support - Identification of Intel(R) chipset components in the Device ManagerNo mention of LAN ?
PC inventory takers :- Belarc click hereSIW click hereSiSandra click here one of the above will tell yu the type of network adptor fitted so you can then google for he drivers.
A visit to the motherboard manufacturer's website will/should certainly enable LAN drivers to be downloaded.Alternatively they will be on the motherboard's CD-ROM, although perhaps the website will provide more up to date versions.
In my experience it is unlikely that win xp will install drivers for the lan but if you find out the make/model of mb and go to their site you will be able to download all the drivers you need.
Sorry Stuartli didnt read your reply correctly. What mb do you have Tinkey Winkey
