Hello. I am new to this forum.
I just reformatted my computer and installed Windows XP home edition. I actually partitioned my HD in 3, leaving 8 GB for the XP. The XP is updated to service pack 2.
After installation, I did not have Internet connectivity. I updated many drivers using a second computer and a pen drive, but I do not know how to run a xps file.
Some features of my computer are:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2C (with LAN)
Chipset: Intel Lakeport-G i945GC
Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet Adapter (in PCI port #2)
In the device manager two items come under other devices (yellow question mark): ethernet controller and PCI Device.
Can somebody help trouble shoot? I tried installing a PCI install from Realtek, but had no luck.
