I just recently reinstalled windows xp professional because it was getting really messed up. I installed it properly and now the USB ports nor the Internet is working. Which means i have no mouse and no USB and no internet. I dont know how to get the internet to work. I'm running Compaq Presario SR1630NX. When i open Device Managers the following things have a Yellow Sign next to them: Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC, PCI Modem, Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller, Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller, STandard OpenHCD USB Host Controller.

I installed the Ethernet driver already from here: http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-RTL8139-Family-PCI-Fast-Ethernet-NIC/3000-2112_4-91313.html . But it didnt seem to work.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: I just want to add that when i try to isntall the Chipset Driver it says that it is already on the computer and after i overwrite that it says: "The original drivers are stored in the C:/HP/Drivers/Chipsetfolder. Please install the driver through the Device Manager."

Also, i am running XP Pro. SP3 x86.

How did you install the operating system, from a retail disc, Compaq disc, restore partition?

If you used a disc, did you install the drivers?

It was a disc that my friend gave me. But it wasn't a compaq disc. And i isntalled the drivers from the HP website but some of them dont work, like the internet or the USB ports.

Was the disc that you used the same version as yours, XP Home, XP Pro.?

The Universal Serial Bus Controllers should be native to the operating system. Have you tried uninstalling these in the Device Manager then restart the computer to install new drivers?

Always download and install drivers from your manufacturer website

Originally i had Ubuntu. And yes i did uninstall and restart but it doesn't seem to work.

And narenxp, i did install my drivers from there. I did most of them, some of them do not work for some strange reason. The ones that do not work state: ""The original drivers are stored in the C:/HP/Drivers/Chipsetfolder. Please install the driver through the Device Manager.". Also, on that website i'm not sure which one is the USB port driver or which one is the Internet driver..

This is what comes up:

"The original drivers are stored in the C:\HP\Drivers\LAN folder. Please install the driver through the Device Manager."
And it also opens the Device Manager window...

Still no internet..


EDIT: I did what it says and it said that the LAN was isntalled and restarted my computer. No internet. My guess is that i now have to download the PCI Modem driver? Also,

Also, now after the installation under network adapters it says:
- 1394 Net Adapter (Has no yellow mark next to it, this was not here prior to isntallation)
- Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC (STILL has yellow exclamation point)

Unless you deleted it your computer model has a recovery partition. If you do have it on your computer it would be much better to use it because drivers are automatically installed when you install the OS.

Right click on

- Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC (STILL has yellow exclamation point)

Click on UPDATE>>browse my computer for software.Give location as C:\HP\Drivers\LAN

Does that work?
