The most important update would be the one for your network card so that you can get Vista online to download the rest. This will be determined by the make and model of the network card. If it's built into your motherboard, then the make and model of the motherboard will do. If it's a part of a pre-built system (like an HP or an Acer) then the make and model of the system will help us to find the info needed.

You can find the info about the network card most easily in Device Manager when you're in XP. Go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and then press Enter. Expand the category for Network Adapters and let us know the exact text that you find there, that may help us in our search for the correct driver.

VIA's website has a section where you can download the appropriate drivers. VIA Drivers.

Hi DJBPace07,

thanks again,
& sorry for my late response

I download the drivers but the problem remains same


In Vista it shows that "Modem Hardware not found"
while in XP it works alright.

I don't know exactly what is the main reason for this?

Asus does not offer Vista drivers for this motherboard (either version 1.0 or 2.0) - you'll have to attempt to load them the Windows XP drivers instead.

Go to this page ( http://support.asus.com/common/search_mode...SLanguage=en-us ) and select the appropriate model and download the drivers.

Once in Vista, right click on the drivers and select the "Compatiblity" tab. Tell it to run as "Windows XP SP2" and to "Run as Administrator" (may not be selectable). Then, right click on the driver and select "Run as Administrator" and try to install it.
