Windows 7: WinXP Ethernet Driver Missing, Custom PC

WinXP Ethernet Driver Missing, Custom PC

I just reinstalled WinXP SP3 on my computer and plugged in my ethernet cable to the mobo's slot. It doesnt recognize it so I'm assuming the driver is uninstalled, but I can't find it in Device Manager. The PC is custom so I am not sure on how to get the correct drivers to get the internet working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for using the wrong forums, I needed an answer quick and the winxp forums look mostly dead.

Hi chrislammle,

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Let us know the model number of the card and also post a screenshot for your device manager:

Also, check this link for updating the drivers for your system:

Driver Install - Device Manager

If you are still unable to find the drivers for your system then provide us with the hardware id:

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Do you know what model motherboard you have? That info should get you the model of eth0 devise. Then download and install the needed driver. Realtek and Gigabyte are very common eth0 devises.
