  1. Hi you guys, really need yall help.

    A laptop was given to me with Windows XP installed. I have a router in my home and I tried to connect the laptop to the router however my computer is saying that...Windows could not detect any wired or wireless nerwork cards installed on my machine. When I looked for the drivers, I found a bunch of yellow questions marks on this list

    Other devices
    Ethernet Controller
    Multimedia Audio Controller
    Network Controller
    PCI Modem
    Unknown device
    Video Controller
    Video Controller(VGA Compatible)

    There is a place for me to plug in the ethernet cable as I said b4 so I guess its the drivers i need im not sure

    Can any help?

    And I apologize in advance if this has been posted b4.
