Hi everyone! This is my first post.
I just did a clean installation of Windows XP Professional with the CD which came with my laptop. After installing it, some of the drivers went missing!
These are the drivers which went missing:
Ethernet Controller
PCI FLASH Memory
PCI Modem
Video controller (VGA Compatible)

I have searched all kinds of places like VIA Technology website, searched on google etc.
I cannot find a website for my computer too.
I think it might be quite old, but it is quite new looking.

My System Specifications :
Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
System Manufacturer : MTC
System Model : SONOMA_
BIOS : Insyde Software MoilePRO BIOS Version 4.20.10
Processor : Intel® Celeron® M processor 1.50GHz
RAM Memory : 256MB RAM
DirectX Version : DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

You need to open the case and look at the motherboard. somewhere printed on it will be the manufacturer and model of the board. Are the modem, video , and ethernet controller on the motherboard or on separate cards? If so you will need to do the same thing for each card in order to find out what they are to get the drivers.

Hi Kasim and welcome to the forum!

Your system is a laptop. Therefore everything is integrated.
No need to open it to ID parts.

There should be a sticker on the laptop somewhere with the specific model number.
Most times it is on the bottom of the unit.
Post that for us please so we can point you in the right direction
In the beginning there was the command line.
