Broadcom 440x integrated controller drive will not load

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 notebook running Windows XP Home. The driver for the omboard Broadcom 440X integrated controller will not start per Device Manager. I have re-installed drivers from the Resource CD as well as the updated driver from Dell Support with no resolution. Administrative Utilities reports an invalid network address. Dell Diagnostics reports error code 3B00.0788 - EEPROM failure detected. Expected a Bootstrap checksum of 009Fh reveived 006Fh.\015\012FYI: The keyboard was damaged by spilling champagne on it: one memoty chip has failed.\015\012Also, the main battery is dead with flashing ''fatal error'' lights, and the RTC battery is also dead.\015\012I jave a Broadcom diagnostic program which I can use to rewite the EEPROM but I do not have the file ''eeprom.bin'' that I need to install.\015\012Any advice would be appreciated.\015\012\015
