Default eMachines EL1200 XP install, drivers missing

Just installed new hard drive in my eMachines EL1200-06w.

After a fresh XP Pro install, I was missing a boatload of drivers.

Went to eMachines website & downloaded driver sets and installed.

I'm still missing drivers for "Other PCI Bridge Device, PCI Simple Communications Controller and Video Controller (VGA Compatible)".

Everest Home Edition (log attached) will not name the motherboard, except that its ID is "10/23/2008-NF-MCP61-6A61K00CC-00" so, I'm having difficulty locating drivers, and concerned why they're not installing from the eMachines' sets I've downloaded.

Guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Did you install the nVidia chipset driver listed there??
From your Everest report, it looks like you didn't.
It is necessary in order for your motherboard to recognize the hardware on it.
This link a direct download of the nVidia Chipset driver v. 15.20
(The same one listed at eMachines)

Gloo,

Firstly, thank you for replying.

Onto the pain...

Yes, I'd attempted to install that NVIDIA driver set you noted.

Tried again after you'd suggested, hoping against hope I'd been abducted by aliens and had been programmed to think I'd done that rather than experiencing my first alien probing...

FAIL

Attached, please find the screenshot of an error message at the end of the installers attempt to provide my machine w/ the network manager portion of the install.

ugh

This is the XP nForce 430/410 chipset driver for your board.

Gloozit,

Thanks more.

I've tried to install the nVidia chipset drivers you linked me to.

No joy.

I got the same error message attached to my last post and the drivers are still not installed.
