hello,
   i own a compaq presario 6016us. i recently uninstalled/re-installed windows xp and lost most of my drivers. i was able to recover all of them but my ethernet controller driver. for some reason, the driver downloads from the compaq website are fixing my problem. i tired to do a "driver update/driver install" using the device manager ... with no success. i called compaq and they suck...there technical support told me he could help becuase my warrently has expired... great thanks compaq!

the networking card is integrated on my motherboard, so i dont know if i have excess to the model number (besides there are most likely easier ways of solving my problem than opening up my computer and looking at the motherboard)

here are two links i have been using:

i really need some help here... that is why i am offering so many points for this problem.

any advice or fixes would be awesome.

need anymore info....just ask!

thanks,

Hi jmmisiti,

Try AIDA32 => http://www.aida32.hu to identify the network card for you. Then you can start searching for a driver at http://www.driverguide.com (loginname: drivers password: all)

Ok, let me know if it can identify your network card. You should look at "Physical Devices" not the "Windows Devices"

You MUST install the NVidia chipset drivers before the NIC will be identified properly and allow you to add the NICs drivers.

Ok, great - now we have a valid card to deal with.

Did you try these?:

If they do not work then try these:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_winxp_3.13

These are Unified Drivers for that chipset and all supported devices based on that chipset.

Hope these help.

Please read the installation notes carefully if you are going to use nVidia's Unified Drivers - as Service Pack 1 for XP must be installed first before installing these drivers.

Cheers.
