Question about Compaq Network adapter

1 Answer

EMC / Compaq / HP NIC

Any idea where I can find a driver for a
EMC 207-571-900 Fiber Channel Adapter ?
I'm getting confused. I know about HP buying Compaq, but did Compaq buy a part of EMC ?

Any help is greatly appreciated

    That is part of the problem. If you try to search on 201-571-900, the NIC card is not found. I cannot seem to find any hint of any drivers for this NIC card.

Compaq Presario 2050NX onboard pnp nic (LAN) device not found - reinstalled onboard LAN device driver, still can't see it

In Windows 7 the driver installs automatically
I would suggest uninstalling all drivers for the network adapter then reboot and allow the system to find the NIC again. If this is Windows XP uninstall all drivers for the NIC, reboot, and install the above driver.
If it is Windows 7 uninstall the drive, reboot and allow device manager to locate the driver itself.

The network adapter does not turn on automatically when the system is booted up, it has to be manually turned on.

Specific driver required from compaq,these cards/mainboards are known not to work with most generic replacement cards.You need to use the specified compaq nic wireless card and driver or problems will arise.

I have installed Win xp sp 3 in hp compaq 2300 dx desktop, now network drivers are not working , i have downloaded the latest drivers from the site...

Since you didn't mention what exactly the problem is, whether it's not detected or drivers not supported or etc..etc.. I have to assume myself as incompatible drivers. If I am right, there are three Network Drivers for your System, i.e. Broadcom as Gigabit Ethernet, Belkin as Wireless and Intel as NIC. In fact, you have to install all the three drivers, to run the different network features. If you are connecting through a broadband, you'll need the Intel NIC and for wireless, Belkin and for Gigabit (fiber) ethernet, you'll need to install the BroadCom.
I don't know what you've installed, but if the problem still persists even after installing the drivers, then I would recommend you to run the Intel Drivers Update utility. This is an online free service on the Intel official website (click here), open the link, wait for few seconds and then click "Check your system for the latest updates", the utility will scan your computer for available hardwares and it'll show you the available downloadable drivers. Simply follow the onscreen instructions to install them.

If you can sort it out this way, you better use another freeware like Device Doctor (click here to download), download and install it, then run the drivers scan and update the required/necessary drivers.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

You might plug in a USB wireless adapter or NIC. That might get you to the internet where you can download the needed drivers for the internal NIC. Or you can look in Device Manager, see what NIC is listed that needs drivers, download that driver set to another computer, then transfer the drivers to the Compaq. In Device Manager, add the drivers for the NIC, directing the search to the USB device where the drivers are located.

The onboad NIC card is not recognised by device manager when I reinstalled windows xp SP2. I've downloaded the correct NIC card drivers for a presario SR2020NX directly from their website. When I look...

Uninstall the drivers for the device completely and restart the system. It should install the correct drivers upon restart. If not, retry installing the NIC card drivers that you download.

Are you sure that you download the ethernet drivers and not the Utility program? It's easy to confuse the two.

I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350

I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

Use one or the other , not both.

Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.
