Seems to me that you need to get the ethernet working first. If you can get a copy of PCWizard installed on the machine, it will identify all the chips and then you will be able to search - on your other computer - for the correct driver.

Good luck!

You need to download drivers for your different hardware. Did your PC come with a driver disk? Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device manager: Then on that window it will show you all your current drivers, I'd say a few of them would have exclamation or question marks on them.

Changing your display back to normal size: Right click on your desktop > Properties > Settings And then move the slider to the correct resoloution for your PC.

Alternatively you could download this file Link It will auto and download the correct drivers for your PC

My screen resolution wont go above 640 480 pixels,16 colors, and it wont go any higher, and the monitor is set on default and wont change, and i cant change the display settings because nothing will...


This could take for ever .. So check your card.. it rules how big your monitor will go.
you can set it to 1024 by 1024 but if the card is only good for 640 by 480 thats as far as you can go..look up the specs on your video card...

Well, there is a solution, but it depends how comfortable you are with computers. I assume you have a driver to use it under windows 98, and I'm hoping it's a cd burner, and that you have XP install disk.

You would need to use a program called nLite or another similar one, but this is the only one I've personally used. Just googled for it and you'll find instuctions on their site. You will be using that program to copy your XP install CD to your harddrive, integrating the needed drivers with it, and then burning a new bootable XP install CD that includes the needed drivers.

NEED WIZ"S HELP- CANT BOOT XP OR VISTA CD FROM DVD DRIVE


Hello,

I'll give a whack at this problem. I think the previous person meant blank drive NOT black drive (that doesn't make sense to me).
I would follow the previous persons in going to BIOS and making sure the first boot device is CDROM. My question to you is whether you've already done this or whether you need assistance with this process. If so, please tell me what computer model you have.
