Hi all,

I just reformatted an one very old fashioned desktop which still runs on intel celeron processor with windows XP home edition package. after done , i found that Ethernet controller driver is highlighted with yellow color.

Could anyone buddy help advise on the circumstance as I am having difficulties to find out the suitable drivers so that the desktop could access internet at least to download matching drivers to install.

Thank you.

The exterier of the case...the system documentation from purchase...these normally reflect manufacturer and model data.

Any CDs that came with the system...may reflect the drivers.
