Hello Scott t,
Down to the short and curlys with this one.
The only thing you can do is use another computer connected to the internet to download all of your xp drivers for the laptop.
You need to know the brand of the laptop, and its model number.
Then have you or a friend burn all of the drivers to a CD or a Dvd.
Windows 7 has more support for drivers than xp ever did, sure you have a friend with a comp/ cd burner to sort you out.
thanks for your response ..
download what i thought was the right nic driver, copied it to cd, placed into the cd slot but the system still wont recognize the driver...could there be a chipset issue or bios issue....could yopu point me to where i could download drives?
