The Netbook comes with no recovery disc, and my backup failled.
I have no internet, therefore downloading some remedy programs isn't an option.

    Thanks, but the only download available for my model is a BIOS update, which I don't need.

For me this is not a BIG trouble. Usually If you have reformat your computer all function of the motherboard were lost. So, you need to install also the motherboard driver. Get the CD installer of your motherboard load it to the CD room drive follow the instruction given there.

Good luck!

Drivers for lavie laptop


I don't know exactly what model/version laptop you have but here is a link to a page containing links to various drivers for NEC brand LaVie model laptops:
http://members.driverguide.com/driver_search.php?q=lavie&si=7bd2dc5f0fcc65180bfac5a07624a7a9&st=1311481563&gqm0=lavie

However, since this is a japanese market laptop many of the support manuals/forums will probably be in japanese.

The set-up manual is missing from my brand new LaVie LM 530, which I bought in Japan in Jul this year. Please help me find the instruction manual on line- either in Japanese or English.


If I'm right, LaVie is just a Compaq Presario that NEC stuck their name on.

Start Here

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3860070&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&y=6&x=9

If your laptop is a different size or specs, search for a close Compaq match and you should be ok. NEC and LaVie provide about ZERO support.

How to get nec driver's


I just wanna share information for NEC Lavie RX (LR700/8E) owners. 
The NEC Lavie models are distributed only in Japan. so you won't find references of this model in the NEC sites except in the Japanese NEC website. Unfortunately, the site is in japanese language only. Also, it doesn't provide all drivers needed (it is really bad support).

I have experienced how frustating it was to find my laptop (NEC Lavie RX LR700/8E, i bought it from my friend) modem driver. you may try that japanese nec website to look for the drivers, you'll only find the BIOS utility driver, LAN, VGA driver and some useless softwares.

NEC Lavie RX LR700/8E

Audio driver : soundmax AD198x ac97 v5243 (this is difficult to be found in internet) , it is provided in my nec driver cd but it doesn't work. If you have the same case, try to download soundmax AD198x ac97 v3890 (you can find it easily by google) , it works.

VGA : ATI Mobility Radeon 9600, it is popular and well known, so it should be no problem to find this device driver.

LAN : Intel Pro/100 VE network and UGJZ 11ab/g MiniPCI Network Adapter (wireless), they are included in my driver cd. they work fine. I think they can easily be found by googling.

Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility/driver :
* Release: Production Version
* Version: 6.2.0.1005
* Target Chipset#: Intel(R) E7220/E7221
* Date: July 23, 2004 
includes :
- Core PCI and ISAPNP Services
- AGP Support
- IDE/ATA33/ATA66/ATA100 Storage Support
- SATA Storage Support
- USB Support
- Identification of Intel(R) Chipset Components in 
the Device Manager
it is included in the driver cd, and works well.

Memory stick and SD card driver : Ricoh memory stick controller and Ricoh SD Bus Host Adapter. Search of these drivers was quite frustating, but finally i got them. Try the similar device drivers for NEC versa E6000 (quite popular). But i've figured out that these drivers are quite easy to be found by searching in google.

Modem driver : This was the most frustating driver to search. first, by using Unknown Device Identifier, i was able to identify the chip (it is intel 82801dbm modem controller ICH4M). The japanese NEC website and my NEC driver cd are useless. so i tried to search by googling. after 2 weeks searching and investigating it further, i found it !. It is actually Agere Systems AC'97 Modem. You can get it by downloading the modem driver for NEC Versa E6000 or trying NEC Versa E6xx modem drivers. It works!. as additional info, the Hongkong NEC website provides drivers of many NEC versa model, i downloaded the files from the site. it is good site. or you may try googling it

Ok, i hope this information can be useful for you. see ya ....

The NEC Lavie models are distributed only in Japan.
You'll have to call NEC and find out US name/model for that unit. Or find somebody who can read Japanese. NEC support website only on Japanise.

NEC Lavie LL550/7 Audio Driver...


The NEC LaVie series was only released in Japan. Direct driver support for this model from NEC is only in Japanese if you can read it. Your sound device for this model is 'Soundmax AD198x ac97'. You can do a search for the newest driver though, I found several links to it.
