Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Hello, I have a problem with my network card. I have installed the hardware, but when i go to install the drivers windows Xp installs them (the XP drivers which i downloaded from your site) and then it finishes and claims that "There was a problem installing this hardware: Ethernet controller An error occured during the installation of this hardware The data is invalid." And the device is left uninstalled. I have tried updating windows XP with every update i can get from them but nothing has worked. I have tried several drivers from edimax.com but all with the same result. So this has lead me to believe it is a problem with my system. Can anyone help me sort this problem? My system specs: Network card: Edimax Fast Ethernet Adapter EN-9130TX CPU: AMD Athalon 1600+ Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX/MX 400 Sound Card: Soundblaster Live Paul Mackinnon I have a Systemax laptop and had to install a new larger hard drive. When I installed windows xp home I was unable to install the ethernet controller and the wireless driver and iget driver did not install properly, both of them! I tried to download and reinstall drivers but nothing works! HELP PLEASEGary
Its a driver issue or a hardware issue. meaning that yourn etwork card may be fried. could have static damage. or your not downloading the correct version of your drivers.
