Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I've replaced the hard drive & tried reinstalling XP. It said I need an ethernet adapter. The ethernet card is still in place. Is it not recognizing ethernet? What should I do?

You need to reinstall the drivers for your network adapter, sound, etc. You can run them from your original support cds if you have them available. Please see this excellent tutorial for guidance in correcting this error. Also of help may be this link.

You need to download the ethernet card driver from HP and install it. This is impossible unless you also have wire less working. If not, you'll need to go to another computer and download the driver to a disk or USB flash drive. Install that and it should work. Get the driver from www.hp.com. It will guide you to the correct driver if you have all the model number info. Good Luck.

Ethernet driver I just switched my laptop from Vister to XP Pro and I can't find a driver for the Ethernet card, in network connections the 1394 network adapter is there and it says its enabled but when I check it out it has no drivers and can't find a IP address.
