Guess which dummy didn't backup his drivers?

  1. I need some help, bad. I was having issues with my HP Pavilion A6500F and did a reformat. The process went okay, until I needed to update the drivers. It's not seeing/reading/whatever my internet.

    My brother "downgraded" me from the store bought Vista to XP Pro, which I like so much better and the only thing I can find from HP on their site is for Lightscribe... the least of my worries right now.

    I've done the whole Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Info thing and I guess it shows I'm missing 4 things, b/c here's what shows up on Problem Devices:

    Ethernet Controller PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_07DC&SUBSYS_2A64103C&REV_A2\3&2411E6FE&0&78 The drivers for this device are not installed.





    PCI Device PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_07FC&SUBSYS_2A64103C&REV_A1\3&2411E6FE&0&48 The drivers for this device are not installed.





    PCI Simple Communications Controller PCI\VEN_14F1&DEV_2F81&SUBSYS_000014F1&REV_01\4&AA3E8EE&0&0068 The drivers for this device are not installed.



    SM Bus Controller PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_07D8&SUBSYS_2A64103C&REV_A1\3&2411E6FE&0&19 The drivers for this device are not installed.

    How many red and yellow flags show up in the WXP Devices manager?
    If you can, tell us which ones, and perhaps we can help you find them... exact details please.

    Those are all Nvidia's devices, http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.26.html

    That's a modem (Conexant Winmodem), if you don't use it you won't need a driver.

    Thank you... I finally got every yellow question mark to go away except for that one. Glad to know I don't need it.

    Thank you both SO MUCH!
