    Please help with no internet connection!!!

    Working on this Compaq S6500nx, installed Win XP, I have everything working but I can't get on the internet...the Ethernet adapter seems to be the prob, but on the device manager I only have 2 Yellow questions marks which are Multimedia Audio Controller and PCI Input Device.

    In addition, my research tells me that I need to update the driver for the Ethernet adapter, but I'm not having any luck. Please help??

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks. I figured out my error which it is embarrassing, anyways, now that I got it up the sound and cd/dvd drivers aren't working (only works when I use a OS disc). Now on the device manager screen it doesn't show any probs with those devices. Any suggestions?

    Ferrit's suggestion or use this fixit or manually remove the filter drivers.
    Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."
