    Removed Vista and installed Xp on a friends computer. Now her internet lan is missing so I check device manger and found yellow question makes on the following: Ethernet controller, Pci Device, Pci modem, SM Bus controller, and video controller(VGA contactable)

    I downloaded and ran Evest and got this log. I haven't looked for drivers in a while so I'm a little rusty. So if some one could give me a hand it would really help. It's for my 20 something friend and her grand pop(are tired navy vet in his 70's)

    Fortunatly ACER have XP drivers listed for this model here

    Click the box under MS Windows XP and download the Chipset driver, the ATI, Audio, Modem and the bottom LAN Driver Marvell.

    Then install the Chipset first and reboot, then install the ATI, then the Audio and then the LAN drivers and Modem and let us know how things are.
