Hey guys im having a real pain in the behind problem with my internet connection..

when i turned my computer on it gave me an error message saying a file was missing, so i reinstalled windows and formatted it, not knowingly

It worked fine after.. but i couldnt connect to the internet.
I didnt do anything with my modem or router to mess up the internet connection.. but it wont connect.

Someone told me it could be because i lost some of my drivers.. because my computer doesnt have sound now either..

how do i fix this problem?


Thanks

Use another PC to download and save Everest to disc then load it on to your PC

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for multimedia / audio adapter

Look on the right for the network adapter and any other drivers you need

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

No soundcard as in onboard sound, if yes, do you have the motherboard CD as the drivers for that will be on there, if not then you will need to get the information from Everest

Does your modem connect via USB

Will need the make and model to get drivers for it

Yes, if the screen resolution is out - big icons on the desktop, get the Nvidia geforce drivers from the same part

If you get the modem drivers, you should be able to connect and download the others direct
