Can't find network drivers for ibuypower laptop

Q: Can't find network drivers for ibuypower laptop

I'm just going to make a long story short and say this: I bought an ibuypower laptop (Battalion HEL80) a while back and I had to format. Unfortunately I don't have the driver disk for my network card (wired and wireless) and I don't know what the exact model or who the manufacturer is. Does anyone know what kind of card this laptop would have or know of some way I could get the model number?

Preferred Solution: Can't find network drivers for ibuypower laptop

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.)

A: Can't find network drivers for ibuypower laptop

I believe it uses an Intel 945PM chipset.

If so it probably uses an Intel NIC. You can download the chipset drivers from here: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&ProductID=816&DwnldID=12150&strOSs=45&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Home%20Edition&lang=eng

Hi Jage_B. Try an application like Everest. It should be able to tell you who the manufacturer is of all of the hardware components in the system. Whether or not drivers are available is another question lol.Here's a link for Everest: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System...e-Edition.shtmlCheers.OT

Recently had this issue on my laptop where if i restart/shut down and turn it back on it'll be disconnected from my wifi and won't be able to connect or see the network on the bottom right.
The laptops able to connect and find to all other wifi networks in my area except mine.
But on other devices im able to connect to my wifi network just fine, only this laptop has issues unless i reboot my router with the laptop still on then im able to see my network until i restart my laptop again and have the same issue over again.

Im unsure if its a problem with my laptop or the router since the laptops able to connect to find other routers in my area. But at the same time my other devices are able to connect to this router. Also it's a Dlink DIR-826L

I've tried:
Turning off auto channel scan on my router and manually selecting channels 1-11
Resetting the router
Updating wireless drivers on the laptop
Updating the routers firmware

Evening all,

I have just placed a 2nd hand mobo (ASRock M3A770DE) into my pc. It'ts running win 7 ultimate, all h/w is detected ok apart from the integrated network card, therefore i cannot connect to the router and onto the internet. Since win7 is not auto-detecting the integrated NIC, is their a file on the win7 disk i can point it to when i manually try to install it?

On a separate note i can connect to the net via my vaio, in case you can suggest where i can d/l a file from.

All suggestions appreciated.

I've been passed an old laptop to get running, and I've formatted it and it's working fine, but there is no sound. The laptop is a Hi-Grade 8615 GTK. I've never even heard of "Hi-Grade" before, is it a badge for a better known brand or manufacturer? The OS is Windows XP, SP2 (I didn't want to put VIsta/7/8 in it as the laptop has only 1GB of RAM), and according to Everest the PCI/PnP Audio is
"Realtek ALC260 @ VIA VT8237A High Definition Audio Controller PCI"
It's really the sound driver I'm after, as everything else seems OK with the default XP installation, but if possible I'd like to find all of the drivers.
Thanks for any help.

A:can not find drivers for my new laptop

Hi: Your notebook is not supported for 32 bit operating systems. Your only hope would be to see if the W7 32 bit drivers and software from the HP Probook 450 G3 works on your model. Do not use the BIOS or firmware files. https://support.hp.com/hk-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-probook-450-g3-notebook-pc/7834555 I believe your model uses the Broadcom b/g/n wireless LAN driver, and the Broadcom bluetooth driver. It also uses the Realtek Ethernet Controller driver for the ethernet.

Hello y'all,

Well, the issue I'm having is that i reformatted my laptop to do a fresh install of XP, before i did this i backed up my drivers on an external hard drive, which crashed shortly after i completed the fresh install of xp... so i have been trying to reinstall all my drivers, and have successfully (or at least i believe it was successfully...) installed most of my drivers except two.

the fist one is a PCI Modem with ven 1002, dev 4378, which after doing some research is an ATI SB400 AC97 Modem Controller.

The second is the Video Controller Ven 1002 dev 5955, which is ATI mobility radeon xpress 200.

I have found drivers for these from HP by using the PCIDatabase.com website, but once i try to install them they tell me
"INF error video driver not found." and "setup was unable to complete the installation try to setup your display adapter with standard VGA driver before running setup." when i try to install both of these.

Also, for some reason my laptop doesn't have sound either, even though the device manager doesn't show that my audio driver is not functioning (this is why i say i believe i installed them correctly...)

can someone please help me fix my laptop.
oh yeah i forgot to mention my laptop is a compaq presario v2000. any other information that is needed please ask.

A:Can't find drivers for my laptop

If you have a list of your hardware (for future reference, it's a good idea to make a list of your hardware & check the manufacturers' site for drivers 1st before upgrading) you may be able get working drivers for similar models which are still on the toshiba site, as a lot of the components are interchangeable between models. Failing that, I'm pretty good at finding drivers by hardware ID from dev manager.

Hello, my old laptop went down, so I bought a new one, which is Acer Aspire ES1421. I got it without OS as I have my old Windows 7 from previous laptop, however once I installed them, I can't get my Internet to work. Neither wired, nor wireless. The official website provides only the drivers for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I tried them, but they don't work on Windows 7. Is there any place for me to get the ones, which do work on Windows 7? I really don't want to get Windows 8.1 and especially Windows 10, because I really don't like them, and I'd really prefer Windows 7 over them. Even if I'd have to buy another license of Windows 7 for that specific laptop (if for whatever reason I can't share same Windows from my old laptop).

I'm trying to play minecraft and other games but they don't load or display correctly.

Computer: Sony Vaio VGN-CR31Z

All the drivers I download aren't compatible.

Before Win 8 everything worked fine with Intel Centrino.
But Windows Basic Display Adapter is horrible and the only compatible.
Does anyone have any drivers that would work? Everything I've downloaded is not compatible.
Even the Sony Europe website doesn't have the correct drivers, it just makes my resolution weird.
Also my PC needs a driver with OpenGL.. for MC.

Trying to install LOGITECH mini BT receiver for MX 5000 keyboard but Windows 7 cannot find drivers. I spent all day yesterday installing & uninstalling different versions of setpoint, installing/uninstalling drivers. THe only way I can get it to leave "other devices" in device manager is to manually install random logitech drivers that are already in windows but it says it cannot start with an error 10.

Decided to try the reciever in my laptop and it read and installed perfectly as shown by the last picture. No CD no nothing.

Any ideas of how I could get this thing going on the desktop again? I am at the point where I'm about to bulldoze through the registry and delete anything that says logitech but figured I'd check here for other ideas first.

If I use DevManView and open the registry location it goes directly to the location that shown in the registry screen shot (but of course/obviously there are way more logitech items in there than that. Thats just where it goes when I say open registry location.

The model # of this reveiver is C-UV35.

I am writing this on a Windows 7 based Samsung Netbook with an Intel Atom inside (and the Starter edition of Win7) However, I also recently acquired an Acer Laptop - (E1-530) which came with Windows 8.0...

After downloading and trying Win8.1 for a week or so, I decided to try Linux - can't even remember which version - Ubuntu I think, though neither went well, so let's gloss over that.

Anyway, I bought a copy of Windoze 7 32bit online for the Acer and installed that, but now my system tells me that I don't have a genuine version, and I've 5 missing drivers - and because I have no wi-fi, I can't download them directly...

Ethernet controller
Network Controller
PCI simple Controller
SM Bus Controller
USB Controller

And to make matters more complex, the Acer is a 64bit version...Oh... and I've already tried downloading them from Acer, and other System setup sites, with downloader s/w... But, they all seem to drive me nuts with ads, and viruses.

Answers on a post-card please... ;?)

A:Device Drivers for Laptop with no network drivers...

all of the relevant drivers can be downloaded from the acer website for your laptop.

you can gain access to the internet from the acer by plugging an ethernet cable in directly from your router/modem.

only download from trusted sources, and when it comes to drivers only download from the vendor. just go onto the acer website, click support or downloads. and fill out the form. making sure you choose win 7 64bit as well as the correct model of laptop.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop, model PCG-8M3L.

Just reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2, and everything seems to be working OK expect no sound. I went to Sony's support page and they no longer offer the drivers for this computer for download, I think you have to purchase them from like $40 from Sony and they mail you a disk.

Any ideas where I might be able to find these for free on the web??

In addition to the sound card driver, I would prefer to install all the necessary drivers for this laptop instead of using the default generic drivers that come with windows.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

A:Where to find Drivers for an older Sony Vaio Laptop

Hello Chris

Go to Device Manager to identify the sound system and then search online for drivers

Right click My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager.
Click the + at sound
If it is Realtek go to the Realtek website and look for XP drivers.

You can do the same for all the drivers.
Be sure to create a System Restore point before installing a driver
Only install one driver at a time and make sure it is working properly before installing another one.

Hello all,
I am trying to help a friend remotely who is having problems with her Samsung NP-QX410-S02US laptop. Everything works fine except certain games which refuse to run. The stats say it should be able to handle these without a problem so i suspect it is a corrupt driver (or buggy) one. It is running vista but when I check the downloads page ( http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/NP-QX410-S02US ) it only offers XP or Win 7 and the windows 7 versions don't run. Usually such drivers are vista/7 but apparently these are not.

Any ideas? I thought of having her try the XP drivers but of course don't want to cause her greater issues so I thought I would ask here and see if anyone else has ran into this.

A:Samsung laptop can't find the newest drivers for vista

This laptop has nVidia Optimus graphics; it uses Intel graphics when there's no need for the more powerful nVidia graphics and switches to the nVidia when more power is needed. The thing with this is that it only works with Windows 7, how or why is Windows Vista installed on this laptop?

Enter the BIOS and disable the Optimus graphics so that the nVidia graphics are always on. Then install either the latest drivers from Samsung's website or try the very latest driver from www.nvidia.com

I'm hoping you have tried the Dell website and also checked for 64 bit compatability especially with your MB and CPU combos

Dratted new laptop  (Lenovo G505) came with Win 8.  I had a Win7 install CD and license key, so I figured why not?
The rest is a bit of a nightmare... Windows installed perfectly, but was missing drivers for some of the USB ports, networking and WiFi.  Found those on the Lenovo site, but even after hunting everywhere, could not find a couple of drivers so things are infuriatingly wonky (as opposed to lovably wonky!). 
The mouse (touchpad) is doing an annoying hover-to-click thing I cannot seem to turn off, but most significantly, the hotkeys are only barely working and I cannot seem to adjust the monitor brightness no matter what I do.  I've got it so the volume (F1-F3) and all function keys are working, but the brightness-up key does NOTHING, while the brightness-down key shows a blank "fuel gauge" indicating that there is NO brightness, while in reality, it's turned up all the way and barely watchable.  :-(
Any suggestions for either or all of these woes???
I think it's disgusting how the Microsoft/Lenovo monopolists are still working hand-in-hand to make a system that is dysfunctional without Windows 8.  :-(

A:Lenovo laptop came with Win8, can't find Win7 hotkey drivers -?

Was the Windows 7 installation disc a retail copy or a OEM version?

A:Laptop Cannot Find My Network!!!

Read other 9 answers

I cannot find this exact problem anywhere and it certainly puzzles me.
I have a wireless network of PC, Acer Extensa laptop (laptop1), and Acer Aspire notebook (laptop2) which connect wirelessly to a Livebox. All machines are running XP (SP3). Laptop2 connects to the Livebox via a Broadcom 802.11g adapter.
There is no problem with any of these accessing the internet. Until recently (not sure how long ago) there was no problem with any of them accessing each other.
Yesterday we discovered that laptop2 has lost contact with PC. All other connections are fine (including PC to laptop2). I have checked evrything I can think of and have carried out a System Restore taking the machine back as far as I can but that has made no difference.
Laptop2 appears to recognise the workgroup in its 'preferred networks' box but the PC does not appear in its list of computers on the network and any attempt to access the network (My Network Places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network & click on MSHOME) results in "you do not have permission ..." then followed by "Windows cannot find the network path.."
You'll probably need more info but since I have exhausted my abilities I don't know what so I've said nothing else meantime.

A:Laptop can't find network

Seems to have sorted itself out.
Don't know how but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

The Vaio is about 3/4 years old now, and I just did a reinstallation of Windows XP to clean things up a bit. Before the reinstall, I managed to track down this page on the Sony Asia website (http://www.sony-asia.com/support/do...p/sectionfirst?site=hp_en_AP_i&subpage=detail), and downloaded all of the listed drivers onto a memory stick.

Having formatted the disk and installed Windows, I installed the drivers in the order listed on the website. They all worked perfectly, except for the Realtek audio driver.

No sound was played by the computer, and when viewing the sound preferences under the Control Panel, I was informed that there is “No Audio Device”.

I rebooted the laptop, and still nothing happened. Tried uninstalling the driver from Add/Remove Applications, reinstalling it, and nothing happened. So eventually, I figured something must have gone wrong.

I reinstalled Windows XP Professional from scratch, and again repeated the driver installations. They all worked fine, except for the Realtek driver… again.

What options do I have? The audio was working just fine before I reinstalled Windows the first time, so I can safely assume that the card itself is not damaged in any way. The laptop has never been dropped, scuffed, dented, and barely left the house.

I’m sat here staring at the (silent) desktop, so any suggestions are more than welcome. Thank you all very much for your time!

I just hooked up Earthlink DSL with a Netopia DSL modem and a Netgear WGT624 router. My laptop a HP Pavillion 7000 with a built in WiFi, running XP with SP2, can see the strong signal and connect but I cannot display a page.It says that it is looking for an IP.
I have used my laptop on the road and have hooked up to several free WiFi sites.
Ipconfig shows all zeros for IP Address and Sub Net Mask.
I have not configured desktop nor laptop for a wireless network as per MS because I was told it was not necessary unless I wanted to share files or printers.
I would appreciate any ideas.

A:Solved: Laptop can see network but cannot find IP.

An IP of all zeros is invalid. Make sure that your laptop is setup to obtain an IP automatically. If this doesn't work, and you know the range of IPs that the router is assigning then you could assign one as a static IP.

I have been trying to locate the correct network adapter driver (the wired network, not wireless, that works fine) for Windows 7 for this laptop. I've tried the drivers from nVidia (several of the legacy/nForce drivers) but in Device Manager it always says "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" (this is for the "NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller" entry, and likewise it errors the same for the HP ones I've tried. Here's the list I've already gone through: HP:* sp45169.exe (doesn't error but doesn't show up anywhere)* sp48125.exe (fails "not for your system" - looks like it's Vista-only) NVidia:* 15.23_nforce_winvista64_international_whql.exe* 15.58-nforce-winvista-win7-64bit-international-whql.exe () In the device manager, the following info is shown about the adapter: Hardware IDs:PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_054C&SUBSYS_30CF103C&REV_A2PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_054C&SUBSYS_30CF103CPCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_054C&CC_020000PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_054C&CC_0200Device Instance Path:PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_054C&SUBSYS_30CF103C&REV_A2\3&2411E6FE&1&50 Any ideas?
