Why Thinkpad T23 2647 4MP can't conect net after installed windows XP?

I do not use an automatic driver detection program, because they have a tendency to install the wrong drivers.

I look in Device Manager, and use the driver that matches THAT device, the O/S used, and is the newest version, (Date), with all the bugs worked out from an older version.

For your laptop that would be;

Bought a Gateway Netbook LT25 loaded with Windows XP. Was told by the salesman that I could upgrade to Windows 7, so I bought the software. Somehow, I screwed up the directions & ended up with Windows...

Try updating Win 7. Go to Programs and find Windows Update.

Microsoft might be able to provide the drivers automatically.

Afterwards visit

And run their auto detect tool. It works best if you run in Internet Explorer ;)

If you're still missing stuff, let me know and I'll help you track down what's left.

Does acer aspire 4315 wire less net supports in win7 ? ?

As of the moment there is no driver support for the Acer Aspire 4315. If you have already installed Windows 7 and you can connect to a cable internet through your Ethernet Port, you can try downloading and install Driver Genius Professional which can assist you in getting the compatible driver. Since this software can detect even unknown devices.

I upgraded my presario f750 from vista to xp. Most of the drivers I've found except coprocessor, ethernet, and base system device. Searching for the above drivers.

Do you mean you DOWNGRADED from Vista to XP
OR upgraded from XP to Vista.
coprocessor should have been picked up by Windows build in drivers.
Your Vista drivers are here, including your chipset

AHHHHHHHHHHH I see what you mean, XP is not supported by your manufacturer.
OK i have done some detective work for you..
Your ethernet driver in XP is here
OR here
Sound here

I believe the other device listed is your card reader

Update 4090 xcdt

Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also.
Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,

IBM ThinkPad i Series 1200

Try this driver. I've used it on a few I-series Thinkpads that I've had come through my shop. After the download, uninstall the ethernet drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the ethernet port and reinstall the drive automatically. If this one doesn't work for you, let me know, an d we'll try a different one.
