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:
compaq driver downloads for the 6016us
compaq doc. for the 6016us
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!
