Ethernet Driver Lost

Hi,
Complicated story but after trying to install Windows 7 I couldn't get it to work so the only other disk I had was Windows XP Home. Installation went smoothly. Only thing is, I can't connect to the internet or my network because the ethernet driver was not regonized. A link to a site where you can download a driver would be useless because I have no connection. Please help.

Can you post the specs of PC. make/model
Filling out System Specs

You would need to download the drivers.

I have an HP Pavillion PC I don't know much about it but, all I need is a simple ethernet driver and a way to transfer it over to that computer.

Okay, I got it! Finally after searching and searching I found a free universal NVIDIA utility that installed all my missing drivers. I put it on a USB key and BAM. Worked like a charm! (I don't know if it's universal)
