NETWORK DEVICES / drivers . please help me. i am pissed :(

hello ,


i just got my new Computer. It is a hp Compaq d530 cmt , also known as a dc7100 i think....

i just reinstalled windows xp on it and i can't go on the internet.it has a built in Ethernet thingy ... i plug in my routers cord into that Ethernet thing. I get nothing.. i cant go on the internet...

i went to device manager and went to network devices and then i installed HP Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit because it was one of the choices in the thing where u can search for the adapters windows thought were the best.

i still cant go on the internet... once i installed the HP Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit , it said this device could not start... it also said this device isn't working properly.

I AM SOO FRICKIN MAD AT THIS POINT BECAUSE I JUST WANT INTERNET ON MY NEW PC ...

can someone tell me step my step on what to do ?

please help :D

  2. Have you installed the chipset driver, might have a more compatible network driver in the package. uninstall the other driver first if possible. Chipset- and other drivers here:
