Question about E-Machines T6420 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I dont have ethernet drivers.

I had windows vista but my system crashed so i formated my hard drive and installed windows xp and i cant connect to the internet because i dont have the driver. My computer model is eMachines ET1161-05. If someone could give me a link to the download for the correct driver so i can put it on my thumb drive to install on my other computer that would be amazing because Ive been trying all day. i went to the emachines site but all the modem drivers were for windows vista since that computer is designed for vista so i cant find the right one. I dont know what information you need but this is my computer:

Model: eMachines ET1161-05
Processor: AMD Anthlon(tm)
2.41 GHZ 1.87 GB of Ram

so if someone could help me connect to the internet that would be awesome

    Also note that as inf file shows it is same for NT and vista but drivers are for wireless. If you havent found lan driver find www.lavalys.com and download and install everest and it can say exactly who is manufacturer and what is model name. if hardly navigate simply press report and "choose hardware related page" and save it and send me to [email protected] and will find myself and find drivers for you.

Can not locate net work adapter


Possible cause:

The hard drive contains all the necessary drivers that makes the computer function and that includes Internet connection. When you installed the operating system and all other software it does not mean you installed the driver for the motherboard which contains the drivers for the LAN.

Solution:

Run the drivers CD that came with the motherboard. If you don't have the CD. contact the PC manufacturer for the driver CD. Otherwise, you can purchase an add on NIC(network interface card).

Hi guys..i got a problem with my laptop cq40.i cant install vista os.3 type os i had tried.but none of them can install.otherthing,is it my cq40 cant use windows xp sp3?


you may need to format your hard drive before installing any operating system on your laptop. also try removing the hard drive, use an ide/sata adapter and connect it via USB or install inside another computer.

use THAT computer to format your hard drive and install your operating system initially and then remove it and place it back in the laptop to finish the process.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.

Do i need to change my harddisk?


Hello,

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.
