Completely remove the LAN adapter and disable "Plug 'n Play OS" in the BIOS, as follows:
1) Remove the card from Device Manager, under Network Adapter
2) Delete C:\WINDOWS\INF\DRVDATA.BIN
3) Delete C:\WINDOWS\INF\DRVIDX.BIN
4) Delete the following files. Not all of them may exist.

  • C:\WINDPWS\INF\NET559A9X.INF
  • C:\WINDOWS\INF\NET5579X.INF
5) Shutdown and restart the PC, and enter BIOS setup.

Why in the network place show the questen mark?


any yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X means a driver needs to be updated or reinstalled.
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it.
Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Ethernet controller missing hp compaq dx2200


That's probably why you've 2 network cards on your computer. Check is it's so, then connect your cable to the other connector and your network connection will work.
You can see in the control panel under network connection if you have to connection.
The card with the yellow question mark need drivers. For that check that on the vendor website.

Hi Friend,
Just remove the device with exclamation mark from device manager and restart your system. When your system restart again, automatically, it will detect the new hardware and install it properly.

I installed winxp on the ibm 664312u systems - since then i have problems with sound, network connections and video. help


Go to your Device Manager and see which specifically needs the driver.

1. Right click on "My Computer"
2. Select "Manage"
3. Click on "Device Manager"
4. On that right side you will see all the devices your computer has.
5. Click on the device category that you suspect is not working and the ones with yellow exclamations (or question mark) needs driver or correct drivers installed.

To download the drivers go to your vendors (your system model) support web site ( i.e.Dell, HP, Acer, etc ) and download the drivers unto your USB portable drive. Use a friends or other good computer to access the Internet. After that copy all drivers into your desktop ( or create a Driver folder and copy it there) . Go to that Driver folder and double click on them to execute or unzip.
Go back to your Device Manager and right click that device with yellow exclamation and update driver. You may have to point to the right location of that driver on your PC.

Video driver loading problem after clean XP home install


Are you sure that you are installing the proper driver, I mean are u installing the driver for windows xp? If you are not able to install in the proper manner. Do like this Right Click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>Display Adapters. If an yellow exclamation mark is shown then it means that you have not installed the driver and if its not showing any confilct (yellow exclamation mark)then you have already intalled the driver and your video card is also working perfectly. And the problem could be something else. If confilct(yellow exclamation mark) exits.. Do like this. Right Click on the exclamation mark>Update driver>Not at this time> Install from a specified location>make sure u have checked "search removable media..." and make sure that u have put the driver cd in the cdrom and click next. If you have put the correct CD then windows will automatically install the driver for your laptop. During the installation if system shows a message "This driver is not digitally signed..." Click continue anyway. If none of the above things work. Download the latest drivers from the net. -ShaC
