The drivers U R using must be for XP. I'm assuming that the pc started out with vista.

    Have U checked with the ethernet manufacturer or am I not paying attention and thats who the ethernet card is made by. If so, XP is kind of picky with some hardware. Try leaving the device connected to the pc. Use control panel - add/remove and uninstall and drivers for the devices. Then use control panel - system - hardware - devices and uninstall the devices in question. Reboot. When the system detects these devices load only the drivers that U downloaded for them.

    If it is a different manufacturers for the devices, goto their website and get the XP drivers for them. Save them to a handy location and use the above instructions. Hope this helps.

Hello: I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP Windows version of the drivers you require and install them.

When I try to print something a window comes up the save as window how do I get that off


It should be the same for Vista and XP:

Start-> Control Panel-> Printers and Faxes

There should be a check mark beside your default printer. If not, Right click the printer you want to use, and 'Set As Default Printer'.

Hope this helps!

Ethernet problems


I had the same problem. How I got all the drivers I needed I got ahold of an older LAN card like a Realtek 8139 or a 3Com and Windows XP automatically picked it up. I go online and paid the $30 to driveragent.com for a year subscription and scanned for drivers. It picked ALL of them up and I downloaded them there until I was 100%.

You don't have to use Vista. I certainly don't. I hope this helps you.
