I have tried searching for what I need with no luck.
My computer is an IBM 8190KUE with an Intel Pentium 4 processor.
I reinstalled windows using an old cd I had because I could not find anything else. I used windows xp professional service pack 1.
What can I do?
There is no network adapter under device manager.

I installed this and nothing changed. I still have no network adapter/drivers. Am I supposed to find something in the files I just installed or would it have fixed it by just installing the program?

I could be mistaken, but I believe SP3 is cumulative and contains whatever fixes are included in SP2. Installing SP3 requires at least SP1a as a prerequisite >>> (among other things). <<< very useful KB950717

Windows XP Wiki Service Packs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_XP#Service_packs

>>>Microsoft occasionally releases service packs for its Windows operating systems to fix problems and add features. Each service pack is a superset of all previous service packs and patches so that only the latest service pack needs to be installed, and also includes new revisions. However if you still have the earliest version of Windows XP on Retail CD (without any service packs included), you will need to install SP1a or SP2, before SP3 can be installed. Older service packs need not be manually removed before application of the most recent one. Windows Update "normally" takes care of automatically removing unnecessary files.<<<

In other words, you'd only need to install more than 1 service pack if you are updating an XP installation without at least SP1a.

>>>i didn't know there was a sp1a, until i seen it on the link<<<

That makes 2 of us. :blink: I was under the impression that if you had SP1 (which the OP has) you could "skip" SP2 & install SP3 when I stumbled across the "1a" info . The OP may have to install both SP2 & 3, so I posted the above for informational purposes.

Hope this helps the OP, yourself & anyone else who stumbles across this thread.:)

Then again there's always Slipstreaming Windows XP To Create a Bootable Windows XP CD or DVD

Another good guide: Slipstreamed Windows XP CD Using SP3

I use nLite to update my XP installation CD to include post SP3 updates & hotfixes, IE8, WMP11, drivers, some applications, tweaks...& more.

If SP1 is already on the system that should be fine. The only functional difference between SP1 and SP1a is the removal of the Java VM, required as the result of lawsuit. Because the original SP1 is legally non-compliant, MS documentation now refers specifically to SP1a or as a general reference uses the name in words "Service Pack 1".

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813926

"Windows XP SP1a is the same as Windows XP SP1 except that the Microsoft virtual machine (VM) is removed in SP1a."

"Microsoft does not recommend that you install SP1a if you are already running SP1."

then, the point is that its unlikely that the disk used by the OP is sp1a and it unlikely it it was one made with Nlite ,OP says they installed xp with an old disk they had ,with xp sp1 ,so it will be necessary to install sp2 and sp3 ,in my opinion

You have to identify the Motherboard and what type of chip set is used for the ethernet adapter.
