I just formatted my hard drive to get rid of a nasty virus I'm having problems. I have no Internet connection and I cant even get windows to recognize my network adapter. I think it has something to do with my drivers. I use 7.

Can you be more specific? It is difficult to write long posts on a tablet.

The website lists 52 different files. Which ones do I download?

Well your website reminded me that I have a disk for my motherboard and that seemed to work. Thank you for your help. Now I'm gonna have to fix a load of other problems

these are the only three files you really need.

I would start with the LAN driver and install it. After that you should be able to connect to the internet with the computer and download the reset of the drivers.

Chipset

Version 1.3.2.54/5.10.1000.8

Audio

Version 6.0.1.9500

LAN

Version 7.6.820.2009


you will also have to find the drivers for your video card. For those visit the video card manufacturer or video chip maker (Nvidia or ATI) website.
