Default please help me i need ethernet controller and mass storage controler drivers

Hello, I have a big problem and I hope someone out there can help me. I formated my computer and installed windows xp profesional. Now I am missing some drivers and I dont have my driver cd. When I go to my device manager there are three yellow question marks. When I go to the category of "other devices" there is a question mark next to the "ethernet controller" and the "mass storage controller", also under the category of "sound,video and game controllers" there is a question mark next to the "microsoft UAA function driver for high definition audio - realtek 880/860" I think if I get the drivers for these I should be fine, but here comes the tricky part... I bought my computer in pieces and my brother put it together, so I don't really know what kind of a model my computer is, if someone could tell me what I have to look for to identify the model of my computer that would probably help me find the right drivers that I need. It's been like this for months now and I don't have sound or internet conection on my computer, I am able to access the internet only through my dads computer which I am sending you this message from. If anyone out there can help me I would be so greatful. Eagerly waiting for your reply, thank you.

This is a tech support forum. You will have better luck getting a response if you post your request in the Driver Request forum. That's why we have it. This forum is for technical questions about Controllers (IDE, SCSI, IEEE1394, etc).

For help with identifying hardware:

To find make and model of pc hardware, EVEREST Home Edition is a free system diagnostics, system information program that will id most hardware onboard a mb. as well as the actual motherboard.


Alternate Everest download link: (offers 2 sites to dl program from)

Run the program and then:

Click on Computer
Click on Summary
Right hand window (hardware) if the text is blue this is a link to the web site for that particular hardware.

If you have additional questions or need further help, please post a SUMMARY report from Everest.
