Reinstalled Windows XP and drivers..internet doesn't work

Q: Reinstalled Windows XP and drivers..internet doesn't work

Dell Vostro 1500.

A few weeks ago, I received a blue screen of death that would not get off my computer. I had the Windows Antivirus Pro Virus that would not go away. I am going to school tomororw and needed this off my computer. So I decided to wipe the hard drive clean with the Dell CDs that came with this purchase. I downloaded Windows XP and some of the drivers. Some of the drivers that i tried to download say they downloaded but then do not come up. Broadcom440x10/100 is saying the network cable is unplugged, I have no idea what that means and internet will not work. What can I do manually to make this work?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Have you loaded the audio drivers for your motherboard from the CD that came with the motherboard?

You will need to do this to get the sound working.

Let us know the outcome.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S169. The computer will not pick up any wireless connection, even though the wireless light on the front of the laptop is turned on. It will also not work when plugged directly into the modem. Under network connections, it does not find any wireless networks available. I'm using the original Windows XP Professional with no service packs. I downloaded the Altheros(sp?) wireless driver off of the toshiba website and installed it, but to no avail. When I goto the Device Manager, under "Other Devices" and all of the subcategories, there is a large yellow question mark next to each. This includes Ethernet Controller, Multimedia Audio Controller, PCI Modem, SM Bus Controller, USB Controller, and Video Controller.
Any ideas here?

A:Reinstalled Windows XP; Internet will not work.

Yellow question marks in Device Manager...indicate that the drivers for those functions need to be installed.You may want to review items on the following page, http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su...amp;x=5&y=7Louis

I posted earlier for my bf but didn't get a response and now his situation is even worse. Instead of waiting until I got there he rushed into doing everything himself. He had a bad virus, kept him from opening any applications or getting on the internet. Then he started deleting things, which finally stopped his computer from running and would get the error there were missing files. So he got a Wins XP disk from someone else to reinstall windows, again rushed into it, instead of waiting so we could use my laptop to get online and get the proper info on how to reinstall. So to make a long story short, he reinstalled it on his own, lost all his documents, photos, etc. on his computer as well as his drivers. He has no original disks for this computer, and now he can't get on the internet, I guess because that driver is missing too. So my question is, can he use a disk with drivers on it from someone else's computer? Or does he need the one's for his particular computer, which the original owner does not have. Not sure where he should go with this, besides taking it somewhere and having them fix it for several $100.

A:Solved: Reinstalled windows now drivers all gone, no disks, no internet. Please help.

Hi all!

I've installed XP just an hour ago. But somehow my USB ports do not work. I tried installing my internet (using Netgear wndr3300 usb adapter + cd ) but my computer does not recognize i've plugged it in. So i plugged in with cable, but theres no Ethernet controller installed.
So i want to download it, put it on ext. HD and then install it, but ofc my USB ports do not work :S

I already tried to uninstall all usb ports in device manager, then reboot and let windows install them for me. Still they don't work..

Thanks for the help :)

After having trouble with the Win32 heur or W32.sality virus I lost my patient and Completly reinstalled Windows XP Media center edition...

I had bought my PC from packard bell and had support, cd-backup + instructions and everything registered to packard bell, My PC Was A Packard Bell.
Then later my motherboard got trouble and crashed alot... So I eventually bought a new one.

When my pc got the virus I wanted to use the CD-backup I had taken from the pc before the motherboard was changed and also had the support of packard bell.
But the CD did not boot because "information was not valid" and I couldn't use it to reformat and reinstall my Windows XP MC edition.

So I used my student version of the CD, my other cd that would install windows media center edition and also the key for that cd.
I formated everything and left no partition so that superdangerous-virus would die.

After the installation I have no more internet connection and missing drivers installed. I can't update windows because it requires internet which I don't have on that PC. I also no longer seem to have packard bell support.

How can I get those drivers installed on my pc? I have no clue what about the names :( :( :(

I was really tired when I wrote this, hope you understand.

Every post and advice will be greatly appreciated.

A:[SOLVED] Reinstalled Windows XP - No internet connection + missing installed drivers

First in an administrator account type cmd in search, when it comes up type sfc /scannow. That may fix the problem

If not take you windows DVD and do a repair install. One of these should work. A repair is just an upgrade.

Hi There,

After a marathon problem with Windows not booting, I did a clean install on another hard drive.
Now, one of my PCMIA ports (on the side of my IBM A31 Type 2652 laptop) doesn't work. Both were working fine prior to my boot problems and subsequent reinstall. One port still works, but I need to be able to use both for 1. a wireless card and 2. a USB 1.1 to 2.0 conversion card that I use when I print, etc.

I've done Windows troubleshooting for drivers, etc., but Windows (as usual) found no problem.

We have Levine/Young The Complete Reference-Windows XP. Reading through before I did the clean install, I noticed a mention that sometimes this happens when XP is reinstalled, but there is no solution to the problem mentioned.

I'm at a loss to getting both ports to work. I need a solution before the weekend is over. Thank everyone for any help you can provide!

I have no sound?

My device manager shows '?' Unknown Device or PCI Device....

Dose this sound familiar?

Ok here's how your programs are connected to your hardware in a logical sense, this will help you understand the importance of drivers.

Program/Application - Word, Games, Internet Browser.

Operating system (OS) - Windows XP, Vista, 7.

Drivers - Drivers are software that instruct the operating system on how to talk to the hardware

Firmware/BIOS - Pre programmed instructions for hardware, in some cases you may need to 'FLASH' the firmware or bios

Hardware - This is the physical parts of your computer, the chips and wires.

Each stage is necessary to get to the next, if you don't have the drivers installed then the hardware won't work.
If you think some hardware doesn’t need drivers because you haven’t installed them yourself, YOU ARE WRONG, the drivers are just native to the OS (included in the OS).
It is always important to install drivers for major hardware (VGA, Sound, etc) even if the OS has one, because you will get the best from your hardware this way.

So now I guess you want to know where to find the drivers??

Although there are many, many driver sites and little applications, and online driver detectors; some work, some don't, some are spyware/maul ware.
THE BEST PLACE TO FIND A DRIVER IS THE MANUFACTURER, although some proprietary sites are hard to navigate 99... Read more

A:Reinstalled xp now internet wont work

Using the same method, d/l the drivers for your motherboard from the website.
http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?product=1&model=P4C800-E Deluxe
The xp drivers should be the third ones down under lan. If you are using a different os, adjust accordingly.

Perhaps the first time the download was not properly completed?

Back in device manager, click the "view" drop-down menus, and select "Show hidden devices".

Now you should be able to both Wireless and Ethernet NIC (if available), right click and select update driver.

A:Reinstalled XP Internet wont work

In the Device Manager. Make sure the Network Adapter is working correctly and does not have a yellow mark (needs driver). Start by plugging in wired, go to Start/Run and type CMD in the command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns hit Enter. Now type ipconfig /release and hit Enter. Now type ipconfig /renew and hit enter. You should be able to connect wired. Now search for wireless connections and click on yours if you are trying to connect wirelessly.

First off this is my sisters PC which is 250 miles from me. I tried to get her online but no go. I had her reset the Modem,Uninstall the Network adapter and reboot,Double click on the Internet Red X and it tells her the cable is disconnected.

Her PC is not hooked up to the Modem with Ethernet. It must have been wireless. She told me her Network Adapter and it is the same as mine. Realtech PCIe.

After not being able to get it going from here I told her to go to Walmart and get an Ethernet cable and how to connect it. Should work for her that way but I was wondering what else it could be.

I hate long distance fixes. I could have thouhgt it out if I was there but not having the same setup as her I am drawing a blank. I am 63.

A:Upgraded to Windows 10 and now the internet doesn't work.

it maybe a driver issue
see if there are drivers available for that model for windows 10
the PC may not be compatible with windows 10

if its a laptop - the wireless switch or FN/F-Key maybe set for the wireless to be off, or it may be in "airplane" mode

Dear Sir/Madam:
Thanks for your attention. I cannot open Internet Explorer. Trying giving a solution, I have downloaded the last version of Internet Explorer (IE8). When I try to open it, always appears "Lo sentimos, no se puede encontrar la página solicitada" (in Spanish. Its approximate translation is: We are sorry, the required page cannot be find). And then appear:"A runtime has occurred. Do you wish to debug?" In checked box: "Use the built-in script debugger in Internet Explorer. Yes - No". I chose "Yes". Then appear a "developer tools" page accompanied by a box with this legend: "JScript Debugger. Breaking on JScript runtime error - Object expected. OK". I click "ok".
When I try to close the page, it ask me "Do you want to stop debugging?" I chose to click "yes".

I think the solution of the problem is to keep it in debugging. What do you recommend me?

I appreciate deeply your sugestions.

I have just reinstalled Windows XP, and now I can't get on the Internet.
( I use Net Zero Dial Up for $9.95 / Month)

When I try to install the software for Net Zero, it tells me that it Can't Detect the Modem.

In the Device Manager, I see some things with a Yellow?! which are:

Ethernet Controller
Multimedia Audio Controller
PCI Input Device
PCI Modem
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compat.)

I would like to get the Modem to work, and then allow the internt to automatically choose and install the rest of the drivers.

So, I guess I have to find the Driver for a Dell Dimension 2400 Modem. It had a Pentium 4, and 512GB or Ram.

Can I download it on a Flash? and then Choose the Options in the Device Manager- Install From a Specific Location/ Don't Search I will choose the Driver to Install.?

Any help as to choosing a Driver and Some instruction on Installing it would be Greatly Appreciated. I think I could download it Possibly a Flash or CD if necessary.

Then do I click on the Device (Modem) in the Device Manager>Install From a Sprecific Location>Don't Install Automatically, I will choose the Driver to Install.

I see some things in the list under drivers In the Device Manager for Drivers to Choose from, but I'm not sure if there is one there for me. I did choose one that was V90 and I let it download all night and it was still loading in the morning, so I don't think it was working?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have an Asus U36SD

Last night I reinstalled windows for a clean install on windows disk
After finishing and loading up windows I have no drivers so no connection to any peripherals
I can't install them from the web because all Internet drivers are gone and I can't install from USB
Because the USB driver is gone.

Please help!! What do I do

A:Reinstalled windows. No drivers

Follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Put your network adapter driver form the Asus Support Downloads webpage on CD or stick to install it to connect to network. http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...=U36SD&p=3&os=

Then immediately enable Device Installation Settings Option 3, run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates to completion.

If wireless driver gives problems installing then use the ethernet cable which will probably load its own driver if you've enabled Option 3 in link above, otherwise import it from same page.

Windows Updates should provide most all of the drivers. After required reboots, go right back to Check for Updates again until there are no more. You can then import any still missing in Device Manager from the same Asus webpage.

Recovery panel was of no help. And when I attempted to do an in-place installation, but it kept hanging when it got to the 35 minute mark. I deleted antivirus software and attempted again, to no avail. During the hanging, I was able to use f10 to get to a dos prompt, which allowed me to launch the files and settings transfer wizard. I copied everything I thought was important to a newly purchased hard drive.

One I had copied everything I possibly thought I could need, I did a new install. I was able to load Microsoft Office without any issues, and able to load AOL and connect using a dial up connection. When I attempted to set up the Verizon DSL, I ran into problems. When I use control panel to go to Network Connections - there isn't anything there. Completely empty. Verizon told me to call Dell and ask them to reinstall the nic card / ethernet connection. I also noticed that I do not have sound on the computer anymore. When on the phone with Dell I discovered they had not included the "driver and utility delldimension resource cd" when the shipped it to me, and it's no longer available.

Do you know what drivers I need to download from Dell's site and how to set up the network connections so that I can get DSL working?

How about for sound? I've only had the new OS up and r... Read more

A:Reinstalled Windows XP - drivers missing

Even though the CD is not available, you might try going to Dell's site to download the drivers.

Another possibility is to find out the manufacturer of the sound card and network card and download from their site.

Hello everybody, I am a new user here!
Today my computer experienced the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH! I cannot repair because the recovery partition was deleted -_-" As my last resort, I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Home Edition. The installation was a success but when I booted it for the first time, there were drivers missing or not installed. There was no internet so I cannot activate my WinXP, no sound, USB ports cannot read my usb but for some reason my USB Mouse works fine, also there is no firewall installed either. When I got my computer, it came with Windows Vista pre-installed so I do not have the disk, I also do not have any disk that contain the files for my drivers. I went to the HP website support page and went to this link (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3458416&lang=en&) but there is only one useless driver for Windows XP! I tried to copy the drivers for Windows Vista but of course.. that failed. My question for you guys is: Where can I get the drivers for my computer?

Computer Specs: HP Pavilion s3127c
Windows XP Home Edition'
No Drivers..
NVidia Geforce 6150 LE
Connecting to the internet wirelessly

I would love to thank you guys in advance.. so THANKS!

I completely formatted my computer to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, I put in the correct product key and then when I attempted to connect to the internet I couldn't because I don't have the correct drivers.
Back when I used to use Windows XP I put a little CD in and then installed the drivers from Device Manager but now with Windows 7, I put the CD in and I can't install the drivers. They show up with a tiny symbol with a yellow exclamation mark on it (it was like this too back when I used XP, but I had no problems then,). Does anyone know what I can do?
The uninstalled drivers are these:
Base System Device
Base System Device
Ethernet Controller
Network Controller
SM Bus Controller

I'm stumped here, any help would be greatly appreciated. When I right click and click "Update Drivers" it says there are no updates.

I scavenged parts (including the hard drive) from an old Dell XPS to build my current computer. I had to reinstall Windows XP the other day, and now when I try to install drivers from the drivers and utilities CD, I get an error saying "Setup is unable to recognize this computer as a Dell computer and will now exit". Where else can I get these drivers?

A:Reinstalled Windows, Can't Install Drivers


You can download the Drivers from the MB manufacturer website.

Get the Graphics Driver from the vendor's website.

I recently had to reinstall windows xp using a repair disc not the windows xp disc and it worked fine. Except that some drivers didn't install with it. I was able to download what I needed for my NVIDIA graphics card. But my Sm Bus Controller still pops up as a "?" in hard wear manager and my Multimedia Audio Controller with a "!" .

I have tried going into my control panel and updating the device driver and reinstalling it but it finds nothing what can I do. Please help.

A:Reinstalled windows xp. Drivers didn't come with it.

Welcome to TSF....

Since windows was re-installed the thing that has to be done is to install all of the special drivers like chipset, buss, network, audio, video and others, they can be installed in any order you wish and can be found on the system recovery disk set for the computer if it is an OEM like Compaq, Dell etc. or if you do not have a recovery disk set the drivers can be found on the manufacturers web site for either the motherboard or the manufacturer of the computers web site. You can download these drivers and burn to a CD-R and then install those following instructions to reboot when asked.

Okay, so I've reinstalled XP and things are running smoothly now, except...

In my device manager, under "other devices" they all have a yellow ? next to them: the video, audio (no, can't hear anything other than that annoying, "bonk" sound ), ethernet, network, etc. I can't get online to download a driver (I'm at a friend's house now), so I'm trying to find what I need and burn it to disc so I can install it on my lappy (Dell, Inspiron B130 ) and get online again. I'm sure from there, I can go to the dell website and get the sound and what not fixed up, but since I can't get online, and I'm not sure what I'm looking for (there's a driver update on dell.com... is that it? Here's the link. ) I'm really having a "throw it out the window" moment here. Can anybody help me? Many thanks in advance

Oh, btw, I have cable broadband internet service (when I called them, they said my 'puter wasn't showing up, and to contact dell for a driver from the network card. Dell said, "That's $150 please" ), with a ethernet line to the router. Does that make sense?

Until recently, I was running a bootlegged Windows 7 copy. Finally I broke down and bought it from a friend at Microsoft. But now all my driver software is lost. Where can I find an online driver updater that won't kill me with viruses? And is there anything else I should do to protect my system?

Does Windows 7 have it's own drivers for graphics cards? I have the GTX 285 and I just re installed Windows 7 , the Home Edition, but I didn't install the graphics drivers for my EVGA GTX 285 just yet. Strangly I am able to play Armed Assault 2. I wonder if since lately I have been playing ArmA2 and the graphics , according to others, should be brilliant, yet they seem kinda shabby. I wonder if the card is even using the drivers I installed before or just some other drivers. can anyone explain this?

So i reinstalled windows 10 on my GPD Win and it seeps that the speaker/controller/built in mouse/wifi/bluetooth/touchscreen, and just about every other driver isnt installed, not even the battery percentage shows up in the task bar. The hardware doesn't show up in settings but i know it works properly due to it working in the UEFI menu. What drivers and what do i need to do to get them working properly again? It seems that the computer can't detect the hardware although it is displaying correctly. Although i cant use a driver detect-and-install utility because the computer isn't showing the ability to connect to wifi, although it did before and i havn't changed any of the hardware.

I was having some freezing/BSOD problem with a certain very important program and I ended up reinstalling windows. I did so from a USB flashdisk but after windows was installed a lot of drivers seem to be missing. The laptop is a custom build and I don't have the cd with all the drivers since the disk is still at home, which is across the Atlantic Ocean so getting that isn't an option either.

The most important driver that seems to be missing as far as I can tell at the moment is the network adapter driver. Device Manager isn't recognizing the following devices:
- Ethernet Controller
- Network Controller
- PCI Device
- SM Bus Controller
- USB Controller

Windows Update isn't finding any drivers for those devices and I can't download them manually either since I don't know what I need to be looking for.

Any help is greatly appreciated since I've already been 2 days out of commission with the previous BSOD problem before I reinstalled windows. Let me know if you need me to supply any other information.

Thank You.


I saw in another thread it was asked to upload a dxdiag file so I attached that.
