Default re-install

Hi I dont know if i,m i the right part of the forum but here goes.I have just re-formatted another laptop(done once before and was fine) and re-installed windows xp. Everything installed properly apart from i have got no net working options and it couldnt find my wireless card.Also in properties , device manager, hardware it says drivers could not be found, and they all have a question mark next them, for the following ,
other devices;ethernet controller
mass storage controller
multimedia audio controller
network controller
pci modem
video controller
video controller (VGA compatible

It can find the network adapter

Any help would be appreciated

Hi thankyou for your reply. The lap top is a ADVENT 7104 model no. EAA 88.
Not quite sure what specs you need but it is intel (R) Pentium (R) M processor 1.70GHz. Not sure what else you need.

Yeah, just download them to the memory stick and then connect that to the laptop and install drivers from there. Job done!

Hi again
I have managed to get up and running via ethernet but still have one driver missing, network controller.
It still does not aknowledge that i have a wireless card or if i use a usb wireless adapter it does not find this either. Could this be because of the missing driver, if so any idea where i can find it.
Thankyou

Found it, installed and can now pick up wireless router. Problem is it says it is no longer in range even though it is next to it.Any ideas please. Thankyou.
