Re: network adapter driver

Control Panel -->System --> Device Manager.
Find the device with the yellow question mark and right click and then update driver.
XP should have the drivers for it.
Hope this helps

Network adapter for acer aspire

If you don't have the disk that came with the network card, I would go to another computer that does still have internet access, go to the network card manufacturer's site, download the driver onto a thumbdrive, and install it onto the new Win7 machine from the thumbdrive. (I had to do something like this when I rebuilt a WinXP machine a couple years ago. Now I keep backup copies of my drivers on CDs.)

I put a new hard drive in my machine, and cannot access internet because it says this machine doesn't have any installed network adapters. How do I install?

Hello, presumably you've reinstalled Windows after fitting your new drive. Well, you have to find all the drivers for your machine including the chipset drivers (importantly you must install these 1st)) then your system will 'see' the adapter. If you don't have your driver cd's, then you must go to the web site of Acer (obviously from a machine that can access the internet!) and download all the relevant drivers to a memory stick or burn 'em to a cd, then install them onto your own system.

I can't connect to intenet after reinstalling windows. it says error 312. wired network adapter not found.

You probably need to install the drivers for the network adapter.
Go to"Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are beingdisplayed next to any devices. Double click on those devices and a windowwill pop open telling you about the error. You can access the "DeviceManager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "AdministrativeTools", "ComputerManagement" and select "Device Manager" located in the left sidecolumn.

How do you install wireless usb adaptor

A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.

Windows xp home edition reinstall

If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.

Can't find Network Adapters

Are there any "!" marks under device manager?

There's a possibility you installed the network adapter driver, but not the chipset driver.
