I formatted my old computer (by that I mean restoring the computer to its factory state using a recovery cd). Someone suggested me to use a program called driver magician to backup the drivers before formatting, so I did that. But after I've formatted the PC, the PCI network card driver still couldn't be installed. What to do? The name of the card is 3Com EtherLink III ISA (3C509b-TPO) in PnP mode. I did not remove the PCI network card when I was formatting. Should I have removed the PCI card before doing that?
I downloaded a folder from driverguide.com for my adapter but I don't know how to use it. It's called disk2.zip from http://members.driverguide.com/drive...?driverid=6287
I don't know what to do next. I'm new to this... After the first time I formatted the computer, windows was able to detect the adapter, but it doesn't detect the card anymore and it's no longer being shown on device manager.
