Hi,

I just had to reinstall a new hard drive and WinXP on a Toshiba laptop.  Everything went as planned except it did not find the network card as there are no Network Connections listed.  Thus I can't figure out how to install the network card.  I know it works as it was connecting fine earlier on the broken hard drive.  I don't know how to go find software to install drivers etc.. because it's a laptop and I just can't open it up and look.  Any ideas on how I can do this?

Did you use Toshiba Recovery CD to reinstall XP? or using other copy to install.

List your model see if we could locate the NIC driver for you.

Toshiba Satellite  A45-S151.  I did not have the recovery CD's.  Just Installed XP Home Edition from a copy I had never used.  When I try to add a connection it never works, stays empty.

Those are your help. Download all drivers for your hardware, as you need LAN driver now so go ahead to download it and install.

You have done the job for yourself very good.
