Problem with wired LAN connection on HP DV 6000

I recently bought a laptop HP DV6000 and it has problems starting up the 1394 net adapter.
the main problem is that it gives a code 10 error... meaning that it cannot start..
at first i thought it could be some sort of problem when it starts the wireless network connection, but i have disabled it and still gives that error..
the weird thing is that the net adapter works when it wants to, because i have connected through cable more than once.. but for me to achieve that sometimes i have to try that and waste more than half an hour...
i am sure it must be the driver that its corrupt, but the problem is that i have wasted lots of time looking for it without good results, so i think my best option is to format everything and reinstall windows. but the other problem is that it didnt came with the OS cd, and its windows XP media center, and i dont know where to download windows XP media center (i have an original serial, so there is no problem for me to download an ISO of that OS).
does anyone have an idea of what else i can do?
thanks in advanced.

Re: problem with wired LAN connection on HP DV 6000

Ok best solution is a remaster 
dont worry you dont need a cd
your computer has a partition of the harddrive that has the recovery on it
that is why your laptop did not come with cds
laptops and desktops (hp that is have not been sold with cds for some years now) trust me I know this i work in computer retail and sell them. 
all you need to do is restart the laptop and hit the F11 button on the laptop continiously till you see the screen go into recovery mode then just follow the prompts easy. 
  You may also access HP Recovery Manager at any time by restarting the computer and pressing F11 repeatedly before the Windows load screen appears.

On the System Recovery panel, click Next . 
PC Recovery will display "Backing up user data and settings."
PC Recovery will begin recovering Windows XP and application files.
PC Recovery will begin recovering user data and settings.
Upon completion, PC recovery will display "The PC Recovery was successfully completed. Click restart to restart your PC or click Turn Off to turn off the PC. Click Restart .
trust me this will work ,

Re: problem with wired LAN connection on HP DV 6000

I am on an HP desktop at this time and there is the ability to create install cds from a recovery partition (check for menu items I believe might be in the HP folder) and to reinstall back to the factory is a ansl a menu option as well as a boot option I believe. BEWARE OF THESE RESTORE OPTIONS BECAUSE YOU MAY WELL LOSE ANY PROGRAMS AND DATA ADDED TO THE MACHINE SINCE YOU GOT IT. Always have a backup so you can retrieve your data and be prepared with your application CDs to reinstall, if necessary.

Power management related query

Some system have a BIOS settings like these. There are 2 options affecting the NIC. LAN/WLAN switching and LAN power save. Are both LAN power save and LAN/WLAN switching enabled?

On my laptop, it does the same thing as your computer when its on battery (HP laptop) except when there is an ethernet cable plugged in or loopback. I made a little loopback plug to keep the port active even when it is unplugged.

General Networking question

lets see here, your NVIDIA thing is for your ethernet port in your computer.

the wireless PCI adapter, is well, a wireless adapter, its used to connect your wireless, and a 1394 Net Adaptor Connection is basically Win2k/XP's way of telling you that you have a Firewire interface installed in your system.

so, if your going wireless, you dont need NVIDIA, and as your device manager shows that it has a red x on it, it shows that its disabled. as for everything else, i wouldent worry about it.
