that is not needed, obviously he's on another computer.

now you can look for the drivers on the motherboards manufactures website, or if you got it from someone like Dell Gateway HP. ETC you can go to their support page, and do a search, some of them just ask for certain things of your computer like a model number, and they will show how to find it. but i know don't get your sound driver off of gateways website, they don't work, well at least for the 4 gateways i have worked on they haven't.


EDIT:
i didnt see his last post about having his mobo cd. oops

I'm thinking that your network card isn't being recognized properly by windows, somehow its got corrupt I wonder if a XP repair install would fix it, it might pick up the network card and self install, once its reloaded the OS and searched and found hardware.

I thought that would work just as the repair might, it will have replaced the corrupt drivers, you should think of ghosting you hdd now then if it happens again you wont need to reinstall all your software just restore from the back up image(it will do it in 10min depending on the image back up size mate) no reloading wndows and all
