    Default missing network driver

    Hi!

    is there any free software I can use to find what i need for my computer drivers. I am having a hard time getting a network driver for my HP dv9000. I have downloaded every driver on the HP website but I still cant see my network.

    Since you did not mention it ...I will assume WinXP for your model

    Did you install the chip-set driver for your make/model *before* trying to install the Ethernet driver?

    Below is the web link to install the chip-set drivers:

    restart the notebook and then install the Realtek ethernet drivers for xp from the below given web link.

    After installing the drivers, please restart the notebook to take the changes effected.

    Good luck

    Edit: I gave you broken links...try here
    Best to go to the HP site and allow the site to search you model via a scan
    Anyway here is another link

    I've found out by experience, that its sometimes better to install the driver via the device manager.

    Open device manager and go to the property options of the ethernet card (It'll be the one that has the yellow triangle next to it.

    choose to 'reinstall driver' and chose the location yourself, pointing it to the previously downloaded device driver you tried to install earlier.

    The wizard should see this driver as compatible, and start installing it for you.

    it's fairly important to uninstall any software you installed that did not work, previous to trying these steps.
    Always remember you're unique.


    ...Just like everyone else!
