No Networks Recognized when I upgraded to XP Pro

My work pc came with Windows XP Home edition. My office recently purchased XP Pro, and I upgraded. Now I am unable to use the internet. Our office uses an always on internet connection. When I go to Network Connections it doesn't show any networks. I have downloaded drivers, and that didn't work. The computer is a Compaq Presario 6000 desktop. Any idea how I can fix this problem?

    When I look under Ethernet Controller Properties under general it says "the drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28)". When I click on Driver and Update Driver it says "The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software." The XP Pro cd-rom is in the disk drive during this process,

The XP CD will not help in this matter. Download the network drivers from the link below and install them. That should solve your problem

    The website should have the correct driver. What is the exact model and part number of your laptop?

Are you using a wired or wireless connection?

Check the Device Manager to see if there are any missing drivers or yellow exclamation points.

Report back.

    Your computer is a Compaq Presario 6000 SERIES desktop which means you probably need to check the front of the computer or possibly the back for the exact model number.

    Then check the list for yours HERE and THEN download the correct Network driver.

    Let me know what happens.

Ive upgraded my xp home edition sony vaio pcv-v1/G with windows vista home premium ....how do i get it back to xp it wont let me load xp back onto it since i upgraded thanks


Did you reformat the entire hard drive when you installed Vista? If you formatted the recovery partition you won't be able to go back without a Xp installation disc.

I was able to dig this up.
Reference: http://4sysops.com/archives/tip-how-to-install-and-uninstall-a-program-in-safe-mode/

Run Windows in safe mode.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\
Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Kingston 4GB Data Traveler USB 2.0 flash drive not recognized by eMachines T1090 with Windows XP Home Edition. Says it needs a driver????


probably,the driver was not installed by default.

2. test the flash drive with windows xp service pack 2 operating system,if it works without a driver. then providing a driver for your window will do.or upgrade the os
