Help with Drivers/XP SP 2 or 3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a genuine Win XP Home Ed on my PC and I have a ASUS A7N266-VM motherboard.  At any rate I had to reload XP on my computer.  I did but now my internet isn't working.  I was thinking that maybe I need to redownload some drivers but I don't know where to find the right ones.  I downloaded some and put them on a thumb drive and then brought it home to download onto my PC but a message keeps coming up saying that the files are corrupted.  I'm not sure how that could be.  What exactly do I need to do?

  • Aaroon,

    From another computer, download this nVidia driver package:  http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.23.html

    Transfer the driver package to the computer needing drivers using a flash/thumb drive.  Run the driver package to install these drivers:
    Windows XP 32-bit Driver Versions:
    • Ethernet Driver (v67.89) WHQL
    • Network Management Tools (v67.91) "Sedona"
    • SATAIDE Driver (v10.3.0.42) WHQL
    • SATARAID Driver (v10.3.0.42) WHQL
    • RAIDTOOL Application (v10.3.0.42)
    • SMU Driver (v1.61) WHQL
    • SMBus Driver (v4.69) WHQL
    • Away Mode Driver (v6.0.6000.107) WHQL
    • Installer (v6.14)

    Once you get the network interface driver (ethernet) installed, you can connect to the internet and download the rest of what you need.

    If you used an Windows XP Gold or SP1a CD to cleanly install XP, be sure to turn on the Windows Firewall, or be sure to install a third party firewall or internet security program, BEFORE you connect to the internet!!!  XP SP2 and SP3 CDs are set to turn on the Windows Firewall by default.
