  1. So I'm restoring this VP's personal laptop and I have a slight problem. The machine was having serious problems so I drive erased it and installed XP. Its a acer travelmate 4400. I just got XP professional installed on it. Now that I have it set up and running. None of the internal drivers are present. It's not even detecting the internal wireless card. So I can't get online with it. I've tried searching for a restore disk for it but I can't find one short of paying for from possible bogus venders.

    Any ideas or directions?

    Hi

    use any of the free system info tools to find out whats on it, or do a google on the make, sometimes you will get one of the sites that lists its specs, the drivers should all be available on the web for free. Techspot has a good range of drivers.

    PS next time you decide to do this, make sure you know what you need.
