you said;
If this is a old motherboard which some one else has used then i would advise clearing the bios
      their should be jumper on the board which you need to short. then let the system redetect the
      hardware on boot up.

How do I know what jumper,
and what's "short"?

Hi Wanda, gward28 is correct in his statement, on the board their will be two pins sticking up, shorting them out is mearly placing a cap so that the contacts of both pins are connected together.  you need to keep then shorted for about 5 min's. If you can not find the pins to short then you could try removing the cmos battery for about 5-8 mins.  This usally works as well with older boards.

I didn't recieve your e-mail address to send you the driver, i think i have a prob with my hot mail account, you can e-mail me also at daniel.rivers@compaq.com or
d@rivers.sol.co.uk.
And I will send you the driver straight away.....
