I reformated a friends PC & have lost some drivers It's a Packard Bell Imedia 3084 XP home SP3 I've been to the Packard Bell download site but I can't see anything like this model number. I cannot connect this PC to the intenet to run any checks because 2 of the missing drivers are the PCI Modem & Ethernet Controller.
