My hard drive failed so I installed a new one and reloaded the Win XP Pro OS. I used the original Dell Resource CD to reload the drivers--all except for the Ethernet controller drivers. I'm guessing that the Ethernet controller drivers are not present on the CD or they are not loading for some reason. The network adaptor driver did load okay. How do I get the Ethernet controllers working? Does the Ethernet controller have anything to do with the Intel chip set drivers? I have re-loaded the chip set drivers several times but no luck.
Everything else seems to be normal. Ethernet controllers show a yellow exclamation point in device manager. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Ethernet controller--system finds them each time and asks me to direct it towards the driver.
