    I have downloaded the drivers for the wireless including the Acer euro site. The ethernet controller is the device that has a yellow question mark. Under the network adapter only 1 driver shows up.

Hi There PCI Device & PCI Serial Port show exclamation errors Running Windows XP X64 bit

You need to download the Intel XP 64 bit drivers for this system.
This intel site will do it automatically for you.
Look about 1/3 way down for Automatically detect and update drivers and software
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Look at the bottom of your Dell laptop and you will find a "service tag number". Then go to dells site and chose the support tab and then enter this service number and then a list of all new updated drivers for all the items in your laptop will show up and usually at the bottom is the "wireless driver". Download this and then install it and your wireless card should be good to go then. Also check you network connections tab in the control panel and make sure you do not have the wireless card disabled for some reason. Enable it if it shows disabled.

Driver installer doesn't install drivers. :S Gigabyte GN-WPKG

The problem could be caused,as you are also missing the chip-set drivers for the motherboard. You need to download and install the chip-set drivers for the motherboard first. Then install the wireless card driver and it would solve the problem.
Sometimes the conflict is also caused, due to faulty installation of the os.
1. Remove the entries of the PCI, from the device manager. 2.Remove the wireless card from the computer.
3.Restart the computer. 4.Shut down again, 5.Put the card back in and then install it one more time.

Dos problem with sound maker value 5.1

Go to DOS prompt.
If it works (shows info), then direct screen-output to a text doc.
Drive, folder path and filename are your variables.
I used MSDOS many years ago, so my memory of the command name is SYSINF but not 100% guaranteed it is.
May be sysinfo.
Try entering HELP at the DOS prompt which will list all available DOS commands.
Once you have your resulting text-file, view and / or print it.
Look for IRQ conflicts, problem areas, drivers and so on....
Happy hunting !! :)
