Having problems with your E-Machines (T2958) PC Desktop ?

Desktop recovery disc for laptop

\015 I have an emachines desktop and laptop. Both had Windows XP. I wanted to format and reinstall on the laptop, but, on the second disc, there was a scratch, so it did not work. Since my laptop was formatted, I tried using the Desktop Emachine recovery disc. Windows installed and everything seems to be working fine, except that, when I open network connections, the only network icon is the 1394 Net Adapter. Neither the LAN nor the wireless network icon show up, and I obviously am not able to connect either with an ethernet cord or through a wireless network. How do I get them to come out of hiding?\015

Answers :

Yes, you can do that. I usually just download either the wireless driver or the wired driver ONLY and then once that's up and running I just use the computer to get the rest. Usually I'll just do a "Windows Update" and see what it pulls down as far as drivers go and then whatever is left just download to complete.

That should do the trick!
Courtesy of Gateway here is your driver for the network card:


Now here is where it gets tricky. I'm not sure what wireless network card you have there but on that page is a section that says other available downloadsm click on where it says "click here to view these results". There will be drivers for different network cards. I believe it will be the first one in the list, the broadcom one, if not then try any of the other wireless card drivers. Hope this helps you and sorry for the delay.
