Question about Computers & Internet
Initially, you have to determine what OS and/or version of Windows the laptop used before. This could be determined by looking underneath the laptop. Often, there would be a sticker indicating the Windows version as well the the key numbers. Thereafter, you can borrow an OEM Windows CD installer (same version as shown in the sticker). Upon installation and when required, enter the keys that were indicated in the same sticker. Thereafter, it's a matter of hooking the laptop to the internet via the Ethernet port and going to the laptop's manufacturer's website and download appropriate drivers. In the event that even the drivers for the Ethernet port were not installed automatically by Windows, you need therefore to use a 2nd PC and download the network adapter drivers, copy them to a flashdrive and transfer to your PC.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
