I cant get my gateway 7320gz computer to get on line after reinstalling installing windows xp on it to get the drivers...


Sounds like the drivers for the network card are not present...

Grab a flash drive and the model number of your PC. Go to another internet connected computer and download the ethernet (and wireless if that's what you need) drivers frome here to the flash drive. Go back to your PC and install from the flash drive.

I have reformatted my Sony VGN-NR21J and am dual booting Linux Mint and Windows XP. Naturally my problem is in XP. In Linux, all is well. I'm posting this from my laptop right now, connected to my home...


I would suggest that you go under device manager (by right clicking on My Computer) and right-click on the device that has the !. Choose to uninstall that device.

Now, the reason most times for that is that you may have put the wrong drivers in initially, but then weren't completely removed, so the next time you used different drivers, they didn't completely work properly.

Restart the computer.

Go back to the Sony website, and download the drivers needed for your wireless card. And try installing it again.

I would suggest altogether to delete the WinXP partition and instead install Windows 7. I say that because windows 7 has many of the baseline drivers and for most computers of 1.5 years+ you don't have to install many drivers for them at all; they all come built in.

I hope some of that helped.

Please Rate. Thanks.

When loading command and conquer generals, I receive a message that I must have dirctx 8 or higher (I do) and that my graphics card may not meet minimum requirements. I tried to load my video card driver...


This may be a simple need to load all the required drivers in the correct order. After a Windows XP reinstall, the correct driver order is: Notebook System Software Intel Chipset Utility Video Driver Audio Driver Network Driver Wireless Driver Touchpad Driver Quickset Utility DVD and CD burning/playback applications
Ensure that all the drivers have been installed, if in doubt, do a system restore to the day the XP install was done, then load the drivers.

I need help with my compaq laptop i had to wipe the drive and reinstall windows xp and now i have none of the wireless card driversi mean i have none of the drivers that i can tell none for networking...


Did this laptop originally come with Vista installed, and you downgraded to XP?
No?
Did you install XP from a full Installation disk you bought?
The reason I ask this, is it shows Windows Vista as the original operating system.

I found, as you did that there is no LAN driver available from HP Support, except for Windows Vista. (Broadcom Wireless)

I suggest this:

Contact HP.
I would call them. Much nicer speaking to a real person, and faster than emailing them.

Here is the phone information page,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact/phone_assist.html#section1

(Product Name is Presario)
Phone number is 1-800-474-6836

I just called the above 1-800 number, to verify it was still a good working number, and to talk to tech support myself, about what is involved for you to obtain this disk, and if said disk was available for THIS laptop using the Windows XP operating system.
(Apologize for the run-on sentence)
(9:37PM, Thursday, Sept. 17)

[1.Get Tech Support
2.Notebook PC
3.Presario
Wait for tech support. Time I incurred? 3 minutes waiting time]

You'll have to call tech support yourself, so that you can give them THE serial number. At that time, the tech will verify whether drivers are available for LAN, for the Compaq Presario F572US laptop. Then a Restoration Disk will be offered as an option.

Tell them you need the Restoration Disk for your Compaq Presario F572US laptop, running Windows XP.

Tell them the Serial Number, (s/n in the white Service Tag), and the Operating System, (Windows XP)

(Sometimes you have to remind them of the operating system, to be sure there isn't mis-communication, and they send you a Restoration Disk for Vista)

The Restoration Disk is free. The Shipping and Handling is not. The prices are $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
(Including Tax)
They have an overnight option also.

Wireless enable problem


Check under Device Manager first. That's under Network Adapters. If you see a thing called Network Controller under Other devices, the driver for your wireless card has not been installed. Simply reinstall it by right-click > Update Driver. But if you see your wireless card there with yellow caution sign, the driver needs to be reinstalled. With red X, that mean its disabled, right-click it and Enable. If no wireless card under device manager, your built-in wireless card is busted, you need to buy a separate notebook adapter. Good Luck!

Can't connect to internet with built in wireless


Do you have Windows XP, and did you install Service Pack 3? If so, you may need to go to the wireless card's manufacturer's site and download an updated driver (or if not available, reinstall the original driver). SP3 puts in a file that is incompatible with many wireless cards.

Dell C640 wireless not working


I used Everest home edition to find the wireless drivers for my DELL C640 laptop.   The wireless card in it is an  ntel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B MiniPCI Adapter (IBM). I've downloaded the wireless driver from Intel's website, here: 
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=944&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional〈=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!#DRI
It's the 3rd result in that search page. If the link doesn't work, simply search for Intel® PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection on Intel's site. 
That Dell C640 wireless driver works fine for me, I'm using the wireless card to type this :)    
good luck!
