So a couple weeks ago I was forced to reinstall windows xp from cd to my computer. After install, I discovered that my audio does not work, and there is no LAN option under "network connections" (just the 1394 net adapter).

I googled a bit and found a lot of "reinstall your bios driver" suggestions, so I did that, but it's still not working.

any suggestions?

Then...amend the previous instructions...go to the motherboard manufacturer's website and download all of the appropriate drivers for that board.

wow... you're not gonna believe this but I just found the driver disk for the motherboard in my cd case... I swear I've gone through this case half-a-dozen times and swore it wasn't there.

everything is working now. THANKS :thumbsup:
