    this kalilulah obviously didnt follow question or doesnt have any idea what he is talking about! if chip sets are embedded and both ms windows and onboard bios dont list or identify any manufacture detail for these on board devices, there is no way to get any information or 'cd' at i had been to before i went to fixya and gives absolutely no manufacturer or any detail whatsoever if one simply searches on motherboard identification name, which is what i assume kalilulah recommends although he never says what information he uses on in fact doesnt return any information whatsoever when searching on motherboard name or number. kalilulah needs a bunch more lessons.

Alright, let's get you going. The surplus motherboard you have should be the same one used in Compaq EVO 410M desktops. Same Intel 845 Chipset, too. Anyway, here's the link for the XP drivers - ought to work with Win2K. If not, then try the NT drivers (Win2K drivers are not available - that version is a tad moldy).

Here's the link to the Compaq download site:

You will want to download drivers for the chipset, usb, video, and audio, plus anything else you see that you might need or want. No guarantees this will work (the hazards of buying a surplus motherboard without drivers), but I suspect it will. Let me know how it goes.

The internet stopped connecting. I reset everything I could think of but still not connecting. I took the case apart and noticed a lot of dust and the fan for the power supply has stopped. Not sure what to...

fans bad will wreck lots of parts from overheating.
NO OS stated.
is this XP.? the dead OS and virus magnet?
so its wired LAN, good that is 10x more easy to get working and to help you. for sure, than wifi, (im a wifi pro and so hate it...)
So first if to see if the Ethernet chip driver is missing in device manager.
As XP drivers are pain in the ash can to find. ( i can with my tools)

your PC is only 10 years old, 70 dog years.
so id bet it needs new PSU (fan bad) and new COIN cell.
and the missing NIC drivers, for this PC

this PC came with XP ,vista or W7
the driver must match, the OS,
so which is it?
here Ill guess its w7 as it should be, and not the 2 other DEAD OS.
ill then guess 32bits.
and land you here.

omg there is no NIC chip on the POS.
ouch. not good that, you left off the word NOt/.
and said
The ethernet is on the mother board
of the CAT5 jack is not there then say so.
I cant look and must trust the spec pages,
here ill look for you.
Lite-On USB Wireless LAN Driver Update
and sure does need working driver.
after all how can you get it ,if you cant connect the the internet.
chicken and egg deal there.

ok the info page shows

  • Interface: Integrated into motherboard
  • Technology: Intel 825662DC
  • Data transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/s
  • Transmission standards:10-Base-T Ethernet

so the old slow Ethernet jack 10baseT is there. a slug slug slug port. pathetic is the words
but has the driver if you need it ever go there.?

better is a USB eithernet dongle new.
100x better.

Computer can't find sound device

START - My Computer (RIGHT CLICK) - Properties - Hardware Tab - Device Manager button - click on the sound, video and game controllers - on the drop down menu you should see sound codec - either right click and UPDATE DRIVER - or delete sound codec’s and restart, XP will install suitable sound drivers.
If that doesn’t work then try installing sound drivers from the computer manufacturer.
If you have a big X on the sound codec or your third party drivers than it’s a hardware issue.
If replacing the drivers’ doesn’t work then it's a hardware issue. If you have onboard sound card then you will need to replace the mother board. I hope it's under warranty.
