If the registry is messed up,follow the guidlines as stated in article #307545
from kb at microsoft.com Even though the outline states "Prevents XP from
Starting" it'll still repair as in youre case...

Ty, download this free registry editor. Use it to search for the adapter
and delete what it finds. Be specific when you
search so that it finds only that adapter and verify each key before you
delete anything. Anything with " ENUM" in the name you should be able to
safely delete. Start with that. Reboot when you are done and it will be
redetected, see if it will install. Before you start back up your registry
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756 as this program does not make
automatic back ups. http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/reglite.exe .Search
for the name that shows up in the device manager for the adapter.

On the left hand side of the window select the first Hkey folder.Then on the
registar lite menu at the top click on security>change permission> add your
login username to the list there by clicking on add. Do the same for the
rest of the Hkey folders on the left. Once done reboot then try to delete
again. Make sure the card is disabled or uninstalled before you begin.

Thanks PC.
Should it come down to it, is there a way to uninstall XP and reinstall it
without losing my data? Better yet, can I just reinstall XP or do I have to
clean out the hard drive and start over in order to get the network card to
be configured?
It's getting close to 2 weeks that I've been working on this, and I'm still
sane. lol

If you do a repair install of XP you will not lose your data. Instructions
here http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm But that really
depends on your system. You need a Windows XP cd a manufactures restore cd
will not work unless they can tell you how to do it.

system detected the device but had the same problem installing. I'm just

Do just the ones with enum in the name first. If that does not work then we
will do the others.

PC, what is mdmxsdk ? This item is under Non-lug and play drivers with a
yellow ! next to its name. When I look at its properties it says "unknown"
for manufacturer and location.

Could be your modem. I think you should back up your files and do a clean

Here's an update.
I stripped off XP and I'm back to Win98. The network card installed, and
services, clients and protocols all installed and are running. So at least
we know it's not the hardware. Does this mean that I had a software
installation problem or that my hardware is not compatible with XP? I will
install XP again and see what goes. Any suggestions?

Not necessarily. A computer component's working with Win9x/Me is
absolutely _no_ indication that it will work with WinXP. Computer
components designed for use with Win9x/Me very often fail to meet
WinXP's much more stringent hardware quality requirements.

Possibly.

Very possible, particularly if the computer was originally designed for
Win98.

Have you made sure that your PC's hardware components are capable
of supporting WinXP? This information will be found at the PC's
manufacturer's web site, and on Microsoft's Windows Catalog:
(http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx) Additionally, run
Microsoft WinXP Upgrade Advisor to see if you have any incompatible
hardware components or applications.

You should, before proceeding, take a few minutes to ensure that
there are WinXP device drivers available for all of the machine's
components. There may not be, if the PC was specifically designed for
Win98/Me. Also bear in mind that PCs designed for, sold and run fine
with Win9x/Me very often do not meet WinXP's much more stringent
hardware quality requirements. This is particularly true of many
models in Compaq's consumer-class Presario product line or HP's
consumer-class Pavilion product line. WinXP, like WinNT and Win2K
before it, is quite sensitive to borderline defective or substandard
hardware (particularly motherboards, RAM and hard drives) that will
still support Win9x.

Just wanted to let you know that I now have the system up and working with
installed services, client, protocol. Thank you very much for the help
you've provided throughout this long process. All that's left now is
printing from the laptop to the printer connected to the desktop, but I will
work that out.

btw, what happens if I don't register XP with Microsoft?

Peace

Register or Activate? If you don't register nothing will happen. If you
don't activate windows it will disable itself until you do.

Thanks. It keeps telling me that I have 30 days to do something. I'll
activate it, just concerned about giving MS too much information.

If I used the wrong CD to do the XP installation, is there a way to change
the product key so that MS gets the correct product ID when I activate? e.g.
If I used the OEM CD that came with the laptop to install XP on the desktop,
rather than the retail CD.
