So a while ago I was fiddling around with javascript and testing out the stuff that I made when my computer just froze and I couldn't do [bleep] about it. So what do I do? As any human would, unplug it.

I only did this because it was COMPLETELY unresponsive. I start it up again few hours later and it comes up with the screen "Would you like to enter safe mode" "safe mode with netoworking" "or safe mode with command prompt" also "Re-start normally"

I chose all of them but it only brought me back to the same screen after restarting without even letting me log in. I got tired of this seeing I couldn't use it at all so I found the operating system re-installation disk, poped it in and deleted the partition (Deleted all the information I had stored previous).

After four hours of bordom, it finishes and I setup and log in. Only the internet doesn't work because the disk didn't come with any drivers for ze internetz.

Too bad I have already encountered this half a year earlier. Back then I just brought it to the computer store and a day later, all fixed! But this time I wanted to not have to pay $120.

So my question to you guys is, how can I find what kind of modem I have (forget what it's called but it's the thing where the enthernet cable plugs into the computer) AND how to install the drivers myself for low cost or even free.

I'm on the other computer by the way

You have not stated what your computer is. Who makes it, or what motherboard is in it. The reason we need this information is so we can see if there is Motherboard chipset drivers you can download from the internet for the computer. Most ethernet that is built into the motherboard is run from drivers for the chipsets on the MB. You just reinstall the correct chipset drivers and the ethernet will be working again.

OK I have never heard of it though it is presumably a Pentium 4 CPU. Can you unplug the PC from House Electricity circuit and open up the side panel of the PC. Look for a make and model number on the motherboard and a version number usually following the model number ie ver.1.00. For example 'ASUS P4P800 E Deluxe Ver 1.00'. Replace the side panel and put the details on your post.

Alternatively move to step two and go to the motherboard manufactures website, input the model and version number and download the latest drivers for the chipset.

Howdy:

The P4XB is a VIA mobo however, it comes in two different setups. The P4XB-RA and the P4XB-SA.

What it does not have is an integrated NIC (ethernet card).

Go to www.belarc.com and download and run Belarc. This program is small enough to fit on a floppy or flash drive so get it that way and transfer the program to your computer.

Run it and copy and paste the results here.

With luck, it should tell us the make of your ethernet card.
