Perhaps you computer is too new to have XP drivers for it. You may have to do what I did... get used to Winders 7 or (ugh) 8. I resigned myself 2 years ago... but I still have a couple of XP computers around to operate the programs I still like, but don't use frequently. You might try downloading SIW, or Speccy (and there are others) free, that diagnose your machine and tell you more than you ever wanted to know. They will tell you the manufacturer of the ethernet adaptor, from whom you might be able to get a driver. It's called planned obsolescence... they're much more interested in making money than in helping you or me.

Model number of the PC would help. Also, please specify which drivers are missing. You may be out of luck. Newer hardware isn't backporting drivers to XP. I have an MSI Nettop and the video and audio drivers are not available for XP.

I don't know if you are using a cd from HP whith the windows xp software on it, because I done something like that before and didn't work, you have to find a cd from hp with windows hp software intallation on it otherwise you will have problems, after the installation you can search for the update drivers from hp.com.

SOURCE: Aspire 4315 - Driver Problem for "Network Controller" both Win XP/Vista

Most of the time the problem with the network controller is that you have the wrong driver. The easiest way to get the right driver is to get the make and model off the wireless card, then go driverguide.com and download a driver for the card. You may have to download several before finding the right one. Once you've found the right driver, burn it to a disc for future reference. When downloading the drivers save them to the desktop before installing.

"Base System Device" is your card reader, I had the same problem. If you dont use it jst disable the device, otherwise the drivers should be on your alienware Master CD, if not get a tech support guy to send 'em to you.

My audio device is not working. so i want to sound driver for it.


Hello,
You can download all the drivers you need for Lenovo 3000 Y410 Laptop from the below link
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68104.html#audio

Just scroll down the page for Audio drivers for both win XP and Vista,click on the blue version number to download the one you want.

Note : Incase you have win XP,some people has issues installing the xp driver with sp3 installed,the driver seems to work with only sp1 and sp2.So if u have SP3 and unable to install xp driver, do one of the following.
1) Uninstall SP3 and install SP2 and then try installing the driver for XP
2) Download Vista driver and install it with windows compatibility mode set to XP SP2.

Why is my ethernet driver missing ? where can i get an update done from ?


Well, there are a lot of reasons to cause your driver missing or outdated.

As to the solution, I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best regards!

you have gone backwards in operating system and it is possible that the driver for the notebook is not compatible for win xp
as win xp is no longer being supported by microsoft it is better to stay on vista or install win 7 as all downloads are now orientated to the later operation systems

Downgrade to Windows XP.


Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.
