I just reformated my harddrive to Windows XP Service Pack 3. Now I have pretty much nothing on my harddrive and am having trouble finding the proper drivers to access the internet. I have downloaded the driver for my motherboard an intel D865GVHZ, but I cant find my ethernet driver which I believe is a Ras Async Adapter. However that could be wrong. Just need to be able to get on the internet with that CPU and then I think I can find my other drivers. Please help, Thanks.

Hi, as you have downloaded your mobo drivers i pesume you have access to the internet on another computer !!

On your comp. go to system tools-system information-components-problem devices...

you will find devices there. Use the VEN (vendor) and the DEV (device) numbers and use this link to find the manufacture and poss, device model.

Is this a custom built system or a brand name system?
If brand name what make and model.
If custom built the drivers for your motherboard are located HERE
There us the
  • Chipset
  • Audio
  • Video
  • Network

These are the 4 drivers located on the Intel website for your motherboard.
In the menus click on XP Pro as your OS
Then click on Drivers in the next box. Under that will appear your drivers.
