  ROB.R 20:29 16 Nov 2007

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

Dont understand how you legally downloaded an "original "copy o XP?

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.
