Are there any "!" marks under device manager?

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

After you reinstall the Operating System, you need to reinstall the drivers for the adapter as well.They do not get reinstalled automatically. You may go your computer's manufacturer's site and download the drivers and install them.

Try to Install this driver for Windows XP, directly from their website.
By the way, if your adapter's version is 1.0, its user guide is here. On the other hand, if it is 2.0, the corresponding user guide can be found here.

  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)

Need to factor reset,|NOT REBOOT, for acer aspire 3630 windows xp

Hi and welcome to Fixya..

Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
  • Step 1
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
  • Step 2 Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
  • Step 3 Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
  • Step 4 Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
  • Step 5 Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
  • Step 6 Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
  • Step 7 Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.

  • I hope this helps

    Due to 2 power outages in 1 morning I reinstalled Windows XP but cannot install A&T Yahoo says I need an ethernet adapter and network adapter can this be reinstalled.

    1. Try to reinstall the ethernet driver.
    2. what you might try is to open up the computer case and try another slot that is if its not part of the motherboard.

    If you had power outtages and it has effect your computer you might want to purchase a battery backup with protection as if a power outtage spikes you could loose your equipment to damage.

    Thanks for using Fixya!
