There should be some options. One of them should be "last known good configuration". If so, choose it.

Hope that helps and good luck.

You have removed any system file or driver from your PC or your system have many of viruses. Start windows in safe mode by clicking F10 while booting. Transfer your files from C drive to other drives or in removable drive. Get windows recovery disk and repair your windows xp. This also formates your C drive. Next time, load a licenced antivirus and do not make any changes in C drive.

Ethernet Drivers for Compaq Evo for XP

This should work.

And just to add that your system specs are really old and you should think about upgrading. 128 mb ram upgradable to 2 gigs.

Integrated 4x agp should be able to install a new agp graphics card.

Or you should buy a new computer if you dont know how to build your own which can be tricky and expensive if you cant reuse many parts.
