    I've downloaded that from a couple of places...and when I run the setup, it still is not installing the driver for the card. The monitoring utility is isntalled but windows still asks for a driver for the card...



    The zip also contains a driver folder...I tried pointing the add hardware wizard to this folder but still it searches for "Network Controller" driver! strange!!

Aspire L310 Desktop: can acer aspire L310 desktop work with win xp and ...


Yes. I am currently updating an Acer Aspire L310 (lunchbox format) desktop.

Many of the drivers are contained on the XP installation disk and will automatically be installed when you install XP.

Other Drivers:

Assuming your L310 has the same hardware (may not), you can use the following Hardware detail to locate the drivers by typing in the hardware model into a search engine like Bing.

NIC - Marvell Yukon 88e8056 PCI-e GB; this driver can be downloaded from www.cnet.com. On this website, just type in the model info and it will direct you to the driver download.

Wireless NIC - Broadcom 802.11g; download from www.cnet.com

Display/motherboard chipset - Once you have installed XP and the NIC driver, go to www.intel.com and click on the "downloads/support" option. The website provides an autodetect utility that will identify your hardware and provide updated drivers.

Audio - go to Realtek website and select "downloads". Download/install the high definition audio driver for XP.

Once you are up and running with XP, run the Microsoft Windows Update utility and it will find updates for many of the essential drivers.

...hope this info helps

Multiple devices don't work after XP reinstall.


When you install a operating system, all the hardware drivers must be installed. Such as, chipset, graphics, Ethernet,modem, or what ever hardware you have.

So you need to go to the website of lenovo and download all the drivers
for your operating system, if the pc came with vista, and you put on xp,
they might not offer the drivers for xp, so you will have to look at every piece of hardware and go to there website and get the xp drivers.
This is the best way.

Or you can let windows find them for you.

See where the yellow shields are, click on the + sign and you will see the hardware,

now right click on the hardware and in the little window choose
Update Driver Software, then tell it to search the internet for the driver.

It will walk you through it , each page whan you click next.

Any more questions just post back.

Dear sir,

Welcome to once again Fixya support

According your problem it seems to be your try to install faulty Network card. So better is check with new good card.another possibility is some time pci slots fail to recognise a hardware, so try it with another pci slots of mother board.According to you onboard network card is dead, means motherboard fails to work when connect to a network,after successfull installation of network card also the possibility of motheboard not allow you to work with new network card ,same situation may arise,i am also managed same problems in several customer place while working as an computer hardware engineer.So try with new network card it may solve your problem


good luck

Format your Hard DIsk in which you've installed your XP and reinstall the XP. If this doesn't help, take your Machine to the Hardware Engineer/Mechanic.
