OK let's try to get a better ideal of what we are working with here.

Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...

DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

OK it seems everything is fine with the temperatures and the motherboard does show the network card I gave you the drivers for.
How much of a problem is it to reload the system now?
Have you done much with it where you would need to backup alot of data?

Hi

No not a lot of data at all.
Just wondering if I should try a repair, or do you think a complete reload would be better.

If I do a fresh install then have to activate again be phone MS may not activate.

Look forward to your comments.

Many thanks

Kind regards

Grandpa

I do have XP SP2, for this computer however I guess its not the way to go by loading that onto the computer that we're trying to "fix"

Ahhh you have the full installation disk correct?
Not a recovery cd but a full version Genuine Microsoft XP disk?

OK then a Repair is probably not going to happen.
You can try it but with a Recovery cd it is known as a Non Destructive recovery.
This is suppose to keep your data and programs intact.
It's suppose to only repair or replace files that are corrupted or missing.
Again if you have data that needs to be saved this would be the time to back it up.

One other thing we could try.
Go back into Device Manager and right click on the network adapter.
Then click on Uninstall
Reboot the system and see if it will install it on it's own.

It seems the installation just did not load the driver for the network card.
Is there by chance a disk that says Drivers on it?
