That narrows it down to about 2,000 different PCs but we need the exact HP model number.

Doctore is correct but I was hoping to get the download link for you. You won't be able to use the HP auto-detect feature on the site because you don't have an internet connection. You'll need to use a different PC to download the NIC drivers AND download the drivers for the motherboard (HP model specific) if you didn't use the HP recovery partition to reinstall Windows. You may be better off taking the PC to a service center and have them download and install the necessary drivers for you. It can get a little involved.

Still futzing. Tried to install VIPRE on my desktop. No damned internet. Going to the HP website does me no good either. I have to get my work computer going now!

If I could actually work again instead of being a damned cripple.

The model number should be on the outside. Usually on a black sticker on the bottom if a laptop or on the back if desktop. This is NOT the Windows CoA sticker. Don't post that number.

Added: You haven't responded to any of the directions. Go back through the thread and review each post. We are also waiting to hear the results of those directions.

That's the only number I could find on the back of the desktop. It has a barcode on the same sticker.

my frickin' computer

All right, I went to HP's website to find the info. Tried to find the driver download, but no luck. I have an HP Pavilion 6000 series, serial # 4CE0350117, PRODUCT # BM419AA#ABA, MODEL # p6620f

Too many frickin' numbers for a slightly dyslexic blind man.

Your model is a HP p6620f
Here is a link to the driver download page for your machine
HP Software and Driver Downloads for HP Printers, Laptops, Desktops and More | HP® Support

I think you will need the Realtek network driver, which is in the section called, Driver - Original
I have posted a direct link to the file below
http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/softwa...-1/sp46490.exe

You need to download the file and then run it on your machine

I'm not used to IE or Bing. I use Firefox. Tried to go online to set my main machine up and it says I'm offline. Checked in Tools and unchecked the radio button, no help. And it's trying to connect thru the WAN port and not thru my new driver. I have trouble w/ Mozilla now but I absolutely detest IE and Bing. I'm not even enamored with MS but I made my bed, I gotta lie in it.

It's HELL where I'm living now. Can't think, can't function.
