Hello,I was given a compaq presario 5BW120 running Windows 98SE on which I did a system recovery.
Problem is the ethernet card that was installed before I did the system recovery now doesn't work.
Windows says that the card is installed but it has a problem.>No Drivers.
I downloaded the driver updates to a disk and then to a folder on my C: drive
how do I install them?

I do not have a disk to re-install the drivers for this product from the manufacturer the only disk that I have is one I downloaded from the site.


Also when I go to my device manager there is a question mark by the ethernet device.
I have tried to have windows search for the drivers but it never finds anything.
It just says Windows was unable to find the drivers for this device.

Any help would be appreciated and thank you in advance.

It is a Pci Ethernet controller
Network Everywhere<<manufacturer
Model no.>NC100

Howdy:

When you go to add the driver or update it, just point it to the folder you put them on..

Were the drivers zipped and, if so, did you unzip them first??

Hello , Murray :whistling:

Thank you for your reply.

I did point it to the folder , and it still told me it was "unable to update" the driver ... I also did extract them.

Go back to Device Manager, hihlight the NIC and select "Remove".. Now, reboot and let Windows find the device again..

Another thing to try is putting the NIC in a different PCI slot before you reboot !!

I just wanted to say that I took your advice and tried all of the suggestions but they did not work unfortunately.
I called a service shop around here and took it in.
It seems that the driver download wasn't the right version so he had to go to another site and download the updated driver .
Anyway thank you for your help. :whistling:
