I downloaded an original copy of XP home yesterday and decided to install it I formated it OK. I did however notice that it never asked me any internet connction questions as setup normally does.
Now I can't connect to the internet A quick look at device manager shows me that I have a few problems. In 'other devices' it shows the following - ethernet controller, PCI device, SM bus controller, These have question and exclamation marks next to them. Properties shows no information just the location of these devices. my motherboard is micro-star inc model ms-6758 version 2.00 i have no discs i got the pc made for me and the man that made it does not live there any more.i dont know a lot about pc,s please can you help me
As above, how did you download an original copy of XP ? Anyway, you will need to download the drivers for your motherboard from the microstar website or from the chipset manufacturer before the devices will work.
i am a bit slow but whitch one do i install please please help me Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Description • Realtek High Definition Audio System Software • Win2000/WinXP/x64 Ver: 126.96.36.19973(WHQL) • Vista32/64 Ver: 188.8.131.5273(WHQL) Update Date 2007-09-27 Your System OS Windows XP/Vista 32/64bit (39407KB) Realtek Gigabit Ethernet Drivers Description • Win2K/XP/x64 WHQL pass • Driver version includes the following OS: WinXP 64bit/XP/200/98SE/ME/NT • Ver : 5.671.0601.2007 Win Vista Ver: 6.194.0607.2007 Update Date 2007-09-03 Your System OS Windows 9X/Me/2000/XP (4771KB)Windows Vista 32/64bit (4122KB)Windows XP 64bit (192KB) Intel INF Drivers for 945/955/965/975/Q3x/P3x/G3x/X3x Chipsets Description • Support for the Intel 945/955/965/975/Q3x/P3x/G3x/X3x Chipset. • Supports 2000/XP/XP64/2003 Server/Vista32/Vista64 • Ver : 184.108.40.2061
