WinXP Pro Reformatting...

  TheShoopShoopSong 14:10 25 Jan 2003

Ive been having trouble with my net-lynx IFM560 modem and my net-gear NIC, since ive reformatted my pc. Orignally there was no problem with both pieces of hard ware, but since i have reformatted everything, they just cant seem to get recognised by the system. Ive tried alteranating them on different PCI slots, and i have also tried formatting the hard drive eyt again. I have also checked bios settings and restored defaults, just in case. yet nothing seems to work. Any ideas on what i can do? In the past i have reformatted using the same disks and following the exact same procedures, but this time nothing =(

I have and Asus A7V333 motherboard with Win XP PRo and a AMD 1.3 CPU.

Is there anything in the device manager with a yellow ! mark next to it?

If so can you list it/them

Did you reinstall the mobo drivers and in what order, I seem to remember that some asus boards were fussy about the order in which the mobo drivers were installed. At least ensure you have the most up to date versions.

They dont appear in teh device manager or even in the Asus Probe Software. I installed the drivers in the genereal order of: mb driver, graphics, etc..

Disconnect your modem and netgear, set your computer to boot from the cdrom.

Insert win 2000 disk and start the computer.

Win2000 will start and do a clean install, just follow the prompts for formatting.

When finished with all drivers for mobo, insert your cards 1 at a time and install.

Also make sure that you have the correct drivers for your problem cards.

Take the cards out and if you have access to a friends pc, try them in his/hers.

I'm sure you have to install the o/s first, then the mobo driver, graphics driver, soundcard, then the modem driver (latest as your copy of XP will not have the latest drivers). You then install the modem and XP will locate and load the correct modem driver.
