Earlier this evening i reformatted my computer. When everything was reloaded i realized that i'm not able to get online and i believe it's because i am missing drivers.

I have 2 computers and the other one is still online and working normally, so i know that my connection is there. When i called my internet provider i was politely told that they do not provide support for this sort of thing. :D

Is anybody able to help me out with this?

Listed below are system specs.. probably too much info there but i'm not sure what is needed

XP Professional SP 3
Pentium Dual Core
E5200 @2 .50 GHz
2.49 GHz 1.99 GB RAM

Thanks in advance

>> probably too much info there << Never such a thing as too much information :D
Hi MommyPie
Have you looked at Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager , Then looked if there are any ! or ? marks beside any items listed there, click the + beside each item first.

Actually we are going to need more info.

Do you have a drivers disk that came with the computer?
What is the make and model?
Is it a Dell, HP, Compaq, etc, or a home built unit?

If its a Dell there will be a service tag on it. With that we can more easily find the drivers.

Thank you to both of you for responding.

It's home built so i have no idea what the male and model is and nope, i do not have a drivers disk.

In my Device Manager there is a ? above the Other Devices. Listed under there i see...

Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus
Ethernet Controller
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

If i remember correctly i should have something called Internet Adapters or something similar...?

Lets see if we can get some system information.

Download and install PC Wizard 2010

Run the program and it will analyze your computer and then display the results.
In the upper left hand corner click on the floppy icon.
You will get a save as screen.
Change the range bullet "only this selection" to be "selected category".
Make sure that text is selected for format.
Click on ok and you will be given a spot to save it to.

Attach it to your response.
