Have you got a Live Linux CD? Boot it and go get your drivers. Works with Dells.

Hello,

I am a computer technician. I see many home systems during the week. I had this same problem. Loading the ethernet driver for the Compaq Presario sr1950nx. I did some searching and found no answers. I downloaded the only driver from hp's site which peterm created a link for, but it only got some nvidia enumerator driver. I decided after searching to add in a dlink ethernet card that we just had lying around and when the system booted both the Dlink card and the onboard nvida ethernet controller were found. My suggestion would be to try to reboot after you download the driver. This worked for me. If this doesn't work my advice would be to add a ethernet card. Rebooting the system worked for me. Hope this helps

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.
