The 1394 network adaptor will not connect to the internet.
Can you connect to the internet.
You should see another network connection which will say Local Arear Connection Ethernet device or similar.

If you CANNOT connect to the Internet, you will have to install from the downloads that you say you have on CD.
I have sent you the network driver. .
Install the chipset driver and then the network driver.
BUT I undertsood you to say they would not install

New Windows XP users might notice a new network device labeled 1394 Connection on their system. This network device is actually your FireWire card. Although most users use FireWire to connect video and storage peripherals, Microsoft chose to list FireWire as a network device, which might confuse some users. Either you can ignore this connection, or you can disable it by right-clicking the connection from within Network Connections (from the Start menu, go to Settings, Network Connections) and selecting Disable.

Disabled it....thx for the explaination about the 1394, as I had always wonder about it's function and for me it is zero. When I click on the chipset install is gives me the error that the orginal drivers are stored in the C:\HP folder. Please instal the driver thru Device Manager......need help here or if we do Windows update, will that download these 2 drivers?

Re my post 42 the network you say it will not install, did you follow the instructions as below.


1. Download the driver package.

2. Double-click on the icon for the driver package downloaded in step 1, and then click NEXT.

3. Accept the terms in the HP license agreement, and then click NEXT.

4. Click OK to continue. The original drivers are now stored in the C:\HP\Drivers\LAN folder.

5. If Device Manager does not start automatically, use the following steps. Otherwise go to step 6: a. Click Start. b. Right-click My Computer, and then select Properties. c. Click the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button. 6. Click the + (plus) sign next to "Network adapters" or "Other devices".

7. Right-click the device you want to update, and then select Update Driver.

8. Click NEXT to install the software automatically

9. Click FINISHED to complete the installation.

1. Did not spot that post about what else you had done until just now.
MOST programs will default to C drive, but you should apart from Windows updates etc and the programs and utilities such as the anti-virus and any browsers for exmaple not use the default but use the custom install to your program drive.

It is your computer but I would go with the MSE that I suggested rather than Norton, but the choice is yours.

In answer to the 6. I do not know what they are so it is a bit difficult to answer.
DO as I suggested for the time being
LAN SOUND and GRAPHICS.

SIS is the LAN is it not do the others

The 6 are:
1. Dell smart card
2. Multimedia Audiio controller
3. Network controller
4. PCI simple communications controller
5. Universal serial Bus (USB) controller
6. Video controller (VGA)

Sounds like 2. & 3. for sure and maybe 6....not sure about the rest?

That was my joke - Sorry I should have out a smilie on it. as is NOW on.

Go back to the HP site and install the drivers for the 2 to 6.
The HP site will of course not have the Dell

DO NOT INSTALL a Dell driver at anytime it will most surely result in problems.
