Windows vista internet problem

Each time i try to go on internet it doesnt work , i always need to rechange the internet driver , soetimes i need to do it for like 1 time the other time i need to do it like 10 times

i think its becuz of my p4pe-x with a built-in ASUSTeK/Broadcom 440x 10/100 but even if it was becuz of that , sometimes internet works , i installed the vista driver from broadcom's site , selected the asustek driver when installing and then it ran but after like 1 hour i restarted my pc and it didnt work so i swithed to the older drivers and it worked thei restart my pc again after some time and i need to change the driver 'AGAIN'

This is not a problem with vista nor the driver. Your network adapter is corrupted. Add a new network adapter.
Hope this will solve your problem. Keep posting.

Use windows 7,but the sound driver cannot be installed,though by using vista ultimate it can be,

Hi amvee_711
You need to download the W7 compatible sound driver from the manufacturer's site .
Try to identify the missing driver(s) whith a motherboard explorer tool , like Speccy from or Sandra from
Look also in the device manager , click on " display adapters " and double - click on the shown one to update the driver .
You could also try on the motherboard manufacturer's site and look for on board hardware .
It' s not always that easy to find what you are looking for but with a little patience , your issue is always to be fixed .
Windows can also search for you on the net but I suppose you already have tried that .
Best regards ,

The product should have a brand name you can always go to manufacturers site to see if there has been a updated Vista driver.

Otherwise it is no recommended but you can try to run the driver or the setup file in compatability mode by right clicking on it and select run in compatability mode. Then you will need to pick an operating system like win xp and see if it works.

I dont have vista drivers which to download and from where

This is a very common problem guys the old laptops and desktops were not made compatible to vista. To solve this problem you have to go to your device manager and select the hardware which is to be installed and click reinstall drivers. Now u have to go online before continueing so switch on your internet and choose the option of search for the drivers on internet................ it will take a lil time but VISTA will surely search and install drivers from internet itself its 100% working i have tried it for anything and everithing.

Second option is switch on the internet while u install VISTA then it automatically download all the needed drivers from internet......
