Most drivers get out-of-date because the manufacturer put out a newer driver. If everything is running properly --Leave it Alone!!

Finding drivers is pretty easy go to the manufacturers website click on support the look up your device model number. If you have a hard time finding a device name or model go to START then ALL PROGRAMS then ACCESSORIES there you will find SYSTEM TOOLS and there (near the bottom) SYSTEM INFORMATION. Once in system info click the plus sign next to COMPONENTS there click the component that you need to find out about. Next to the word NAME you should find the Manufacturer and part number. With that info conquer!

I wan't to change my os from xp 2 to win there any need of driver for such os for my compaq presario c783 me

Yes when you get a new Operating System you need new drivers for that operating system. Your Windows XP 2 drivers will no longer be valid once you switch to Windows 7 for your Compaq Presario c783tu. Most of the drivers will be automatically installed by Windows 7. You may have little problem with searching for some drivers for Windows 7 which Windows 7 does not contain. In this case you may try to install and experiment with Windows Vista drivers.

Warning: You can severely disable the functionality of your PC if you install the wrong driver. In this case you may need expert help and advice to remove those drivers from your PC and restore the normal functionality.

Ethernet drivers for compaq presario SR5510

I'm afraid the Compaq Presario SR5510 doesn't have support for Windows XP, as it is built for Vista or 7. If it shipped with a downgrade option to XP, I assume that the approriate drivers is either located on a CD or on your harddrive somewhere.
