Question about ASUS P4P800-VM Motherboard
I have also had this situation many times. I needed a LAN driver and could not find it. Then I realized that the LAN driver comes as part of the windows xp software. If there is a hardware for a Lan installed, then the windows xp (I always used the Home Edition), found the hardware and applied the software to it. Why don't you try this idea. The only thing that you will need will be a copy of the windows Home Edition. Remember that when you do somethinglike this, you will need to notify windows that the reason for the re-installation is for repairs. When you come to the first pause of the installation you are asked about repairs, but those repairs need that the administartor be identified etc. and all kinds of bruhaha! the next is the one you have to push F8 to start going. The next one has three options. The first one says that if you are doing repairs you push the "R" button. Ignore all other questions and continue to erasing old windows and then choosing and installing the files for the installations. When you finish the installation and you asked to activate windows using the internet, they will accept you under repairs and you windows disk will not be charged with one installation. It all depends if your LAN hardware is in a working condition, but I have never seen one bad yet.... Thank you for your consideration and choice of our service...
