I just bought a Pavilion a1730n Prod# Rk574AA-ABA since the apps that I run work on XP only I reinstalled XP. Come to find out that HP does not support XP any more and I need a driver for the LAN. I have searched for days now and can not find them. THe motherboard is an A8M2N-LA which is only made for HP and the only thing I can find is that that lan could be be one of these three.. Who Knows? 10/100 Marvell 88EC0, 10/100 Marvell 88EC031, Realtek RTL8201CL. Could someone please tell me what drivers that I need to get my LAN working. Thank you

You can download and run Everest . . it will usually identify devices even without the drivers being loaded.'

I have the same exact computer and I am trying to do the same exact thing, and was having the same exact problem with the missing drivers for the ethernet, and the SM Bus.  IAMGIBBON's solution worked perfectly for me.  Thanks for the great work on that one!!!  I was searching for these drivers for two weeks now.  Thanks so very much.
