i recently fixed my desktop computer. it was completly infected so i cleared the whole hd and reinstalled windows xp. the problem is the computer doesnt have the driver it need to connect to the internet. i have no idea how to fix this because to get the right driver i need to be able to connect to the internet! can anyone help my figure out what to do?
If you don't know the name of your motherboard, open the side panel of the computer (assuming you have a desktop), and look for a group of letters/numbers, usually printed large and white in color OR Google the make of the computer. After you figured out what motherboard it is, Google the board with LAN Ethernet driver included. Then download to a USB ( can buy 2 gig for 5-10 bucks) then swap and load onto the internetless computer and install. Just did this myself earlier.
