Re: ethernet controller drivers for presario f700
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html

I would suggest you reinstall using Windows XP because based on your pc specs, your computer will run faster on XP. You may also try Windows 7 because it doesn't require you to install specific drivers. It comes automatically installed when you install the OS.
I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

Go into Control Panel --> System --> Device Manager. Look for a Sound device or unknown multimedia device. Try updating the device to Realtek audio. Vista should have it's own Realtek audio drivers. If you can't find it, go here...
I beleive that you had downgraded and installed a retail version of XP by erasing the preinstalled version of Vista in your Notebook.
However, all the drivers required for your Notebook may not be available with HP if your Notebook is preinstalled with Windows Vista.
I recommend you to try downloading and installing the drivers for HP Quick Launch Buttons from the link below for the first Unknown device in the Device Manager :
Save the file on to the Desktop or My Documents folder and double click once the download is completed to install the drivers.
For the Ethernet Controller, I recommend you to download the LAN Card Drivers from the link below :
Coming to IEEE 1394 controller, you need to download and install the Chipset Drivers which are available through the link below :
Make sure that you download and save the files in the Notebook and double click them once the download is completed and restart the Notebook after installing each of the drivers provided above.
Hope this helps...
I will try. First, upgrade xp to xphome? I think XP home is not an upgrade from anything except maybe Win Me or 9x. As far as I understand it, XP home is the lowest flavor of Win that is currently being supported. That being said, Heres my idea.
I don't know the type of lap you have so I cant look for it myself but if you go to your manufactures web site you should be able to find updated drivers for your Laptop. Usually it can be found under the heading "support" or "downloads". They will ask for your model # and then provide you with a list of drivers and such. If you include your Make and Model# I can help further. But I bet you just the need to update the drivers.
Any hardware which Vista can identify and install drivers for will operate correctly after upgrading your computer to Vista (given that the hardware is in working order). If you can't use them, Vista either has an incorrect or no driver for them. I have a printer that Vista erroneously identifies, and installs the wrong driver for. I had to contact HP for the correct driver. I suggest going directly to the websites of the manufacturers of your hardware for the drivers. If you need further help, please let us know.
