Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

How-To Find Missing Windows Drivers! 1. If your laptop or desktop has internet access, use Device Doctor to scan and locate any missing drivers. Device doctor will provide a download link to any missing drivers. 2. If you have no internet access, you will need to goto your laptop or desktop manufacturer's website and search for drivers for your specific model of laptop (model number is usually located on the bottom of the laptop or on the side of the desktop case). 3. Be wary of other driver scanner programs, the vast majority are malware/spyware. Device Doctor is a program I use everyday at work.

my laptop toshiba satellite l310 miss ethernet controller drivers after format it, how can i get them?


Well if try device doctor portable, fairly easy to set up, it will scan for drivers and if they are missing or need updates it will provide a list to download them, if the current computer can't (that its running on) can't connect to the Internet at all then it will make a text file with links for you to enter into your browser on another computer. You will definitely need another computer to fix this if you can't connect to the Internet.
Here is the link for device doctor portable

i have a hp compaq presario sr2013wm desktop that recently died on me. i didn't have a backup copy to reinstall so i used my moms copy from her computer (she has a emachine) (i figured it was windows xp, it would work.) i now have my computer back, under an emachine but it won't let me connect to the internet (i have fiber internet) it comes up page cannot be displayed. but it works on my laptop just fine. the desktop is for my kids, can you please help.....


hello, the reason internet is not working on this newly installed windows XP is becuase (most likely)you are missing network card drivers.
To verify right click "My Computer", and select "Properties", then click on "Hardware" tab and click on "Device manager" here you will see anything that is missing drivers has a yellow Excalmation mark (!).
NOw that you have checked which items are missing drivers:-
First thing you should do is open the link below on the laptop with the internet.

Download Nvidia LAN drivers on your laptop and find a way to bring it to your HP desktop, copy to flash drive, burn it on cd etc...
Install LAN drivers on your HP computer, restart your computer and test internet.
If internet is now working visit the link above again from HP computer and download all the drivers that are missing in device manager, install them one at a time.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you still have problems or get stuck at something.

Kind regards,
