I just formated and reinstalled windows on my compaq presario sr1950nx and now my computer cant find drivers for the "ethernet controller" i cant connect to the web as I connect through an ethernet wire and my modem is not picked up by my computer! I have no idea what to do please help.
I searched google for an answer but i only found someone else with the exact same prob except he got a new hd while i formated my original one.
I have tried compaq tech support AMAZINGLY MY WARRANTY ENDED ON TEH 6TH AND ONLY 19 DAYS LATER I GET MY FIRST PROBLEM!!!! Now they say i have to pay for the tech support.. yeah right!
Heres the only link i can find related to my problem but the answers given do not solve it:
edit: I instaled windows xp home edition sp2
Go to the device manager, right click 'network adapters' and choose to reinstall driver, do a search, and of course point it to the drivers extract folder C:/softpaq/sp26744 and voila! It will add the NVidia Nforce Network controller.
Don't worry if you choose the wrong option in the device manager, as it won't work for anything but the right option, so you can't mess anything up.
I Googled this, but found the solution on my own.
