For my personal experience, whenever you need find and install drivers for your network card, just seek for help from the free and easy-to-use program DriveTheLife. It is totally free and will identify the most suitable driver for your hardware, after that, you can install with one click.

It will backup, restore and uninstall drivers if needed as well. Plus, it is completely free, you need to pay nothing to use it. Download and try it from official site, you can get this by searching on google with its name DriveTheLife.

Use Windows Update. You may need to set Windows Update to automatically download and install recommended updates.

Install the software from the equipment manufacturer. For example, if the device with the disc, the disc may contain device drivers for installed software.

To download and update drivers. Use this method can be installed from the manufacturer's Web site to download drivers. If Windows Update can not find the device driver and the device is not installed with the driver software, then do this. Windows 7 Compatibility Center website lists thousands of devices can be directly through the link to download the driver.

Most HP and Compaq computers come with full versions of Microsoft Windows preinstalled. Microsoft has an extensive library of software, drivers, and updates available for free download. HP and many of its partners work with Microsoft to provide drivers through Windows Update. Use the following steps to download drivers, software, and updates by using Windows Update:


  1. Connect to the Internet and see http://www.update.microsoft.com (in English).
  2. Follow the directions in the Windows Update page to set up Windows Update and install the software updates.
  3. Be aware of the following tips when using Windows Updates:
    • Install all critical updates first to help keep your Internet connection secure.
    • If you are looking for drivers, they can be found as optional updates from the list of available updates.
    • Due to file sizes, number of updates, and download time, use Windows Update when the computer is not being used for other activities.
For more detailed information about using Windows Update to install drivers and get updates for Windows software, see the HP Support document Updating Drivers and Software with Windows Update .
NOTE: Another great way to quickly get updated drivers from Microsoft is to open Device Manager, right-click the name of the device, and select Update Driver Software . Updating a driver from Device Manager i installed xp on my hp a6683w and it does not - c01162470.gif

I installed XP on a Vista installed PC on a dual boot but when booting in XP I am unable to access the Internet..I need to know if I need to install any drivers


you are going to need to log into the vista side and download the xp drivers for your network card. save it in a place accessible by xp. not anywhere in a user folder...save to c:\network driver even though you are not logged into vista the user permissions will prevent you from accessing anything inside a user or system folder.

  1. Right click on "My Computer" on the desktop (XP) or on "Computer" on the Vista start menu and click on "Properties".
  2. Locate the "Device Manager" on the left side (Vista) or under the Hardware tab in XP.
  3. Find your Network Card under "Network Adapters" by clicking on the plus sign in front of "Network Adapters". If it's already listed and has a yellow exclamation, bypass the previous step.
  4. Right click your network card and click on "Uninstall"
  5. Once it is done, reboot your machine and Windows should reinstall the drivers automatically.
If it does not automatically install the drivers, you can find the drivers at this link. Put in the model of your desktop/laptop and choose your operating system (Vista/XP/2000)

Vista cannot connect to xp printer


It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Network link


Did you make sure that you installed the latest driver from HP's web site for Vista? Some systems will grab the wrong driver if you let it do an automatic install.
