Exclamation Ethernet controller missing?? HELP please!!

Hi all!

I bought this CPU from a friend of a friend for my son and was promised it was ready-to-go, but found I couldn't connect to the internet. I have wireless DSL, a wireless router with 3 other computers connected, and the connection destined for this new CPU works perfectly with my laptop, but not this new computer. In device manager, there were no drivers installed for the ethernet controller, multimedia audio controller, or video controller (but the monitor works fine ??), and these were listed under "other devices" with that annoying little yellow exclamation point.

I have searched the internet for DAYS and looked all over the HP website for any clue, but I'm not even really sure what I should be looking for and I'm getting really desperate now. Can anyone offer me any advice?

thanks!!

Doesn't the manufacturer of your machine have drivers posted? or have you even bothered to look? Lazy people.... look before you post then when you do post, stop blabbing about I done this and I tried that and and I have 3 pc's, and I can't get it to work, and more bla, bla bla. Junk like that means nothing to us. all it takes to get a driver is to visit the manufacturers website (in most instances). If you don't know how to look then describe your pc system and/or motherboard and we'll go look for you when we have adequate time.... otherwise don't expect to be spoon fed. And when I say describe the hardware, I don't mean:

1: "I think it's an hp"
or
2: "it's black and white"
or
3: "it has an Intel 82801 chipset"
or
4: "I got it from my brother-in-law"
or
5: "I bought it on ebay and the seller didn't include a disk"

I don't know which drivers to get, I don't know if its for a motherboard, network card, etc. I have looked on driverguides.com, the dell website, and searched google. I'm not expecting to be "spoon fed", I just need to know what drivers I need.

Hi, sierraok,

To begin with, you'll need to download and install the motherboard chipset drivers for your system, since we don't know if they have already been installed, or if part of the drivers were somehow defective.

The MAIN HP/Compaq page for your system is here:

[url]http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12454&prodSerie sId=337529&lang=en&cc=us[/url]

The main SUPPORT page for your computer is located here:

[url]http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=337531& prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=337529&swLang=13&tas kId=135&swEnvOID=1093[/url]

The reference manuals page is here:

[url]http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?&lang=en&cc=us&contentType=Suppo rtManual&docIndexId=179166&prodTypeId=12454&prodSe riesId=337529&lang=en&cc=us[/url]

Look at those pages, so you'll know what type of information they contain. Be SURE to bookmark ALL of those pages, so you can find them easily in the future.

To fix your system, you have to install some drivers; they MUST be installed in a particular order, so please follow my instructions CAREFULLY. If you have any questions about a procedure I describe, post them here and I'll try to clarify things for you.

To begin this repair, you'll first need to download and install the motherboard chipset driver for your system, since we don't know if it has already been installed, or if part of it was somehow defective.

You can download the motherboard chipset drivers directly from here:

[url]ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp24501-25000/sp24521.exe[/url]

Simply right-click on that link, and choose whatever "Save..." or "SaveAs..." option your browser offers you. The file is ~2.6MB in size, so it should download fairly quickly, even over a dialup connection.

Save the file to the Desktop, or someplace where you can find it easily. Once the download has finished, CLOSE ALL OPEN PROGRAMS, including your browser. Next, locate the file (SP24521.EXE) which you just downloaded, and DOUBLE-CLICK it. The installer program will run; just follow the prompts, and the MCD (motherboard chipset drivers) will be installed. The system will NEED to be rebooted to complete the MCD installation, so do NOT try to avoid or interfere with the rebooting process. Windows does a LOT of housekeeping during reboots, deleting old files and replacing them with new ones, so allow the system to reboot, which could take longer than usual... so just be patient.

When the system gets back to the Desktop, you will have the latest MCD properly installed, so post here again, and let me know you're ready to move on to the next step... After this, we'll install the proper video driver, then the ethernet and multimedia drivers...

Good luck with this; post any questions you might have, and I'll try to answer them for you. If you don't have any questions, follow the steps I've outlined here, and let us know when you're ready to install the next set of (missing) drivers...

hi there,

The adapter you are looking for are at this site..but make sure it is authenticated.

[url]http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/site/search/r4_0/jsp/search.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeri esId=50440&tx=hp%20ethernet%20adapter%20[/url]



It will download automatic, if not go to: Start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - Network Adapters or the one with yellow question mark. Right Click to choose-(update dirver) click (No, not this time) click (Next) click (install from the list...) click (don't search. i will choose the driver to install) click (Next) unclick (show compatible hardware) it will show few driver manufacturers and also choose (digitally signed) only if not your system will crash as it did mine...

if the driver you choose is not working, try again the above but this time another manufacturer... best luck.
