Hi I just recently purchased an Apple Mac Desktop computer (use to be a PC person). Anyway did a stupid thing and let my husband and kids on my computer and I dont know what they did but when i came home a DLL file was missing and the windows side wouldnt boot. No problem I thought (as I back everything up on my hard drives). So I went into the Mac side and uninstalled windows and re portioned it and reinstalled windows (service pack 3 the 2002 version of XP). Here is the problem I have done this at least 3 times and every single time it hasnt installed my network drivers, the following are missing:

AUDIO EVICE ON HIGH DEFINITION
BLUETOOTH USB HOST CONTROLLER
BUILT IN I SIGHT
ETHERNET CONTROLLER
NETWORK CONTROLLER
SM BUS CONTROLLER
VIDEO CONTROLLER

I kinda know my way around a computer having broken at least 2 in the past messing about, but having just purchased this I am reluctant to go into it. I can run the internet on the MAC side but as the computer is relatively new and I still and a bit reluctant to use the MAC side, I still use windows a lot more. Can anyone help and let me know how I can install these back on the window side. If you need more information I will give it.

Thanks

Are you dual booting XP using boot camp? If so, make sure you burned all the drivers onto a cd/dvd. After installing XP, insert the driver disc and it should automatically start the driver installation.

or download your lan / ethernet drivers.
and use a 3rd party driver updater to update them all.


;D

That's what I do.
