I have an emachines em350, I installed Windows 7 as a clean install onto a new hard drive.
It's al sweet except the sound and network adapters have not installed. In fact it seems that Windows 7 is declaring they never existed in the first place.
I have retrieved the latest drivers
, Windows 7 spits them out stating that the devices are not present. I have tried the older versions using compatibility mode. I have tried install legacy hardware. I have tried to flush them out through command prompt.
The sound 'card' (which I believe to be onboard) is seen by device manager, but refuses to have anything*to do with drivers.
The LAN I also believe is part of the motherboard, but it just won't show at all.
For the love of all that is holy, please help me out if you can or I fear this netbook will be going out the window at a rate of knots.
Thanking you in advance
