Question about Computers & Internet
The computer came with Win Vista. When I bought it used it had Win 7. I installed Win XP SP3. Several drivers missing per Device manager. Where can I download? Support site does not recognize the model number.
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.

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.
