I have an old IBM t60 Thinkpad I am trying to (clean) install XP home edition. The OS is installed but I have no internet connection. I am missing drivers for Network controller, PCI device, SM Bus...


You can try to use an Ubuntu 10.10 CD, and when you are done with the install you will have access to the web without needing any drivers.
Then go to the web and download your XP drivers if you still need to.
Would recommend you use Ubuntu as it is much better OS than XP and runs great on T60 very solid.

Where to download drivers to update the BIOS for my IBM desk-top


Ha! Old OS, old URL; possibly just an old desktop not up to the task of running WinXP.
It's a new BIOS you'd flash your system with, and probably a push between your motherboard's BIOS having an update (you'd go to the mobo's maker's site, e.g. that of ASUS, Gigabyte, Intel, etc.; read the screen-print on the board; to get the update) and telling WinXP to install anyhow using a handy force-install option.

A couple of things need to be done.
Install SP3 this is the latest service pack for XP.
Install the TCP/IP (Internet protocol)
Open Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on Local Area Connection - click on the box for Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and the click on Install.
Then reboot the computer.
You network should now work.

I was given a linksys wireless-g model wrk54g router but it didn't come with an installation disk. I have a Thomson speedtouch modem ST530 V6. Right now I am hooked up thru ethernet and getting internet...


was the router used by previous users? or did you buy it? if it was used then it was probably configured for different ISP. You don't need any CD. Just connect to the router via your browser (probably http://192.168.1.1) and adjust settings in WAN section.

USB PORT 2.0 INSTALL


what OS,? was it internet connected during all that? it must.

If XP its now a dead OS, for 3 years, , hp nor microsoft support
XP nor does HP support old SR1430nx.(now)

you installed PCI card ,called USB, no name stated or part number
use the drivers from THEM< the maker of the card.
there are always extra cables, most are power supply cables. in DT.
A tech would look and instantly see where they go and there purpose, explaining that is long long story.
my guess is the quesiton is formed backwards. lite me guess
Running XP "need some 8gb/mp4 player working."
this is the title deal but what is it? is it an external box tghat plays, DVD or is it just a software player. name that it is more clearly, even photos work 1000x best.


you find out XP does do USB well, , sure it does it horribly
XP does not support all USB devices, (some sure) but many not.
and must have SP3 installed, good luck finding that on dead OS
and not get infected with virus, XP is a Virus Magnet.

Getting XP up on new USB devices is a chore, no/?
why not ask the maker of both the mp4 player if it supports
XP. and then ask the card maker USB if it supports XP'


sr1430 (circa 2005?) 12years old, 2 past HP support.
Pentium 4.
what make s you think, this old pc with 512mb memory and slow pc and slow video are up to the large demands of videos movies.
it's not.

the front of the case (reading old review from2005)
shows a USB 2 port.
and that is wires there that go to the motherboard, USB2 jack.
if unplugged this wire USB2 there will be dead.
the mother board has a USB chip, and port.
but needs drivers you dont have, from HP that are no longer
offered.
how to cure that, you add a new PCI card, from a maker that supports
XP, , but who does that now in 2017.
hummmmmm

"Syba SD-VIA-2UH"
here is one with the VIA chip set for USB
note how it says box has PCI card, and CD driver.
with XP accept no cards, lacking DRIVERS.

I just bought a 4720. Iy has windows vista. I also have an old Toshiba sattelite with windows xp. To connect to the internet the toshiba works every time. The new acer sometimes does but mostly does not....


You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).
