I have just been up to my brothers and he needs a driver for for the ethernet cable.

 

Computer worked fine before he had some problems, So I put in a new XP disc and booted it from the CD drive.

 

The yellow ? are against Ethernet Controller, PCI Devices, PCI simple communications control, Bus Controller, Video Controller,

 

 

 

There are loads of different ones that i seem to find when searching.

 

Can anyone find me a link to download one to a usb stick, which I can then download to his desktop PC.

 

It has windows XP

 

 

Totally unsure which one or what one to download

 

Thanks for any help

download something like everest home to your penstick

then run it

and go up on the net and download the driver from the details of the info from everest on those you have a ? by in dev man.

 

you might find it easier to uninstall each device once you have the drivers on the stick

then detect new hardware and point tothe USB stick where you have it saved.

 

you might also find it easier to get the network card working, stick on microsoft security essentials on the pc [as i would not connect a pc to the internet without any anti virus/malware protection]

 

then once you have those two going.

 

find all the ? then update the driver and allow it to search for the right one from the internet.

For your network card (the thing that is showing up as Ethernet controller), you'll need the drivers offered by either the computer manufacturer if it's a single bought unit (say, a Dell), or your motherboard manufacturer if it's a self build or you don't know who built the machine.

 

Motherboard manufacturers offer these drivers for free on their respective websites. If you follow dx100uk's advice and grab something like Everest Home, you can learn the motherboard make and model number. Punch that into Google, followed by 'drivers' and you should find a link to the manufacturer's website.

 

What you're looking to download are the XP drivers for your model of motherboard. They'll either be labelled 'LAN Controller' or 'Ethernet Controller'.

 

The same goes for the other devices you mention; they're all motherboard controlled.

 

What I'd be more concerned about is what happened to cause this. It looks as though your brother's mothboard lost a great deal of it's core drivers, or they became corrupted. You mention the "Computer worked fine before he had some problems". What were the problems? Because if unless those have been fixed or you're sure they're not going to reoccur, we don't want to patch it back together only to have the same problem happen again.

i would suspect an hdd crash, as its lost lots of drivers and obv OS files too.

hence the CD boot needed.

Before I done the above, ( I done the above as I thought that would cure problem, as we could not even access safe mode to do a system restore)

 

It was something along the lines of MSGINA.DLL.XXXX

Contact system adminstrator

 

 

I looked this up and still tried the options offered to no success.

 

That is why I rebooted

launch everest

find the network tab on the left

or the network icom on the screen

 

click that a few times and it will tell you the network card that is in your pc.

 

then either let us know here

or paste it to a search engine with winxp driver for XXXXXXX

 

get the idea?

well keep them in mind

 

your going the correct route

 

i'd get the ethernet device working then let xp do the work of finding the other drivers via update and allow it to search online.

Guys, you have done superb, i have it up and running.

 

the other yellow? i just asked it to reinstall the drivers.

 

only 2 failed.

 

but all seems to be working well, my brother will be pleased :-D

 

PCI Device and SM Bus Controller the only 2, Don't even know what they do :confused:

 

 

 

So thank you very much for all your hard work.

 

I am sure i can fix my son's now, as that had a similar problem

PCI Device and SM Bus Controller the only 2, Don't even know what they do :confused:

 

A PCI device is any device plugged into a PCI socket. All motherboards have a number of these sockets, into which you can plug dedicated cards, such as sound cards, network cards, etc.

This is appearing either because you have a device plugged into a PCI socket and Windows doesn't recognise it, or, less likely, Windows is having a problem recognising the PCI socket itself. Do you know if you have any cards plugged into PCI sockets?

 

The SM Bus Controller stands for System Management Bus Controller, and is an integral part of some Intel chipsets. Intel have a fix available for this issue, which reinstalls elements of your chipset so Windows recognises it properly again. The solution is available here: Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility - Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility support
