i've reinstalled xp on my laptop and now i have no wired network adapter listed in my network connections. I tried to follow the advice given for this same problem <a href="http://www.geekstogo...apter">here</a> but when i try to run the everst home edition program, it just flashes that black box command prompt window and nothing else happens.

any advice on how i find out what network adapter i have?

thanks in advance.

Ethernet controller, multimedia audio controller, pci modem, video controller, video controller (vga compatible) are all in yellow. i tried reinstalling the drivers from the properties menu on these, but it couldn't find the software.

make = gateway
model = 400vtx
