1. An Nvidia nforce4 system driver while being displayed in add/remove
programs following install is unsized, that is not listed as any size in
relation to kb, completely blank in the space size is normally displayed.

2. Nothing is listed under network adapters. possibly indicating a SATA
cable or other critical connection is missing from the hardware. So my
network adapter is undetectable by system as a result and drivers cannot
be installed into it?

3.My computer was working with the internet at my previous address but
perhaps during the move it jostled loose a cable to sever the connection.
At any rate I'm not exactly sure what cable that is unplugged goes where
although I guess it would just be in on of the missing slots... I
recently reformatted believing my problem getting online was viruses.

Before the reformat, my network adapters displayed but I couldn't get any
connection. It listed that a network cable was unplugged even with all
connections being made between comp, modem and phonejack.
OS is xp home.

Any solutions or trouble shooting suggestions would be
much appreciated. Thank-you.

Hi geeks apprentice! Welcome to G2G!

When you go into the DEVICE MANAGER, are there any items listed that have yellow exclamation/question marks next to them? You can go to the DEVICE MANAGER by going to START-->RUN and typing in devmgmt.msc and clicking OK.
