Hi all

Got an eMachines 5260 desktop PC which had a faulty hard drive.

I've reinstalled Windows XP, but I'm lacking the driver resource disc.

Windows seems to have found most of them, however I am missing the following and wondered if anyone knows where I can download them??

Ethernet Controller
Video Controller
Audio Device

Thanking you all in advance

    Ethernet and chipset are here:{cba9f14d-db68-4dfe-be5e-6e408f696011}&CatID={3850cc4c-82c3-4954-879a-94586f26c925}

    If you still have trouble, try this:
    Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
    both four digits long.
    Look up those numbers here:

    This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First try the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

    These hardware diagnostics are free:

    If you have problems downloading, use the System Indformation proceedure in my post above to find out the manufacturer of the driverless chips...
