Windows XP - How/where to download and install drivers?
Posted on 2014-01-27
I have just fitted a new hard drive, and installed XP (sp3)
In Device Manage, "Other Devices", including Ethernet, etc… all have a big yellow question mark next to them.
Without these drivers, I can't access the Internet - to download and install… but..
I do have another old machine with Internet access.
My idea is to download the drivers from presumably Microsoft site, (or maybe they're on the Windows disk I intalled?) and then transfer them, using maybe a USB stick to the machine I'm working on - i.e. the one with the new hard drive installed.
ARe there any sites with instructions to do this - and am I looking at the correct solution?
This happened before, and I took it into a shop - they fixed it in minutes… so it can't be THAT difficult .. :-)
