My friend has a Compaq D51C/P2A computer. How do find drivers for the lan on board. What motherboard would it use

The best method to find the drivers would be to go to compaq.com, and tell the Support & Drivers area what model you have.  I am assuming you meant a Compaq EVO D510 CMT?  Compaq doesn't list the D51C at all, which would not be consistent with their model lines.  Unless, of course, this machine is ancient ;)

It lists 3COM, Broadcom or Intel Pro driver sets... if you are unsure, you'll just have to try em all!  I'd start with the Broadcom driver, then go Intel then 3Com.  


Hope this helps!

Hello PawloA,

This model is actually D510C but it is mentioned on the Compaq desktop has D51C. The driver for this is Intel Pro 10/100 hence I would suggest that you please download the Intel Pro Lan driver
