Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

How can I run a scan to see which network card driver if I can't get on the internet? Went from Vista to XP Home SP2. Nothing available under Internet Connections.


Answers :

Right Click on My Computer. Go to Manage.
\015\012On the left go to Device Manager and click on the box next to Network adapters to expand ..
\015\012This will tell you what driver you need.
There may well be something in the hardware panel though.
\015\012
\015\012Start there and make sure that your network card is listed and has no exclamation mark by it. It may have but it may also give you a make and model. If it does then that would be your starting point.
\015\012
\015\012You may also want to check the cd's that may have come with your acer as it is quite possible that vista drivers may work with your NIC

\015\012For more complex methods of working out what you have in there come back if none of the other ways work and reply to this post.
