    Default Unable to connect to internet

    2.1gh AMD Athlon 64 x2
    Main Board Gigabyte M61SME-S2
    1024 mb Mem
    160gb drive
    XP home sp2
    Award f4 BIOS

    I have just done an XP install with a hard drive format.
    Everything is ok except that I cannot install the dlink 502T modem either using USB or Ethernet. The modem was previously working with USB.

    Device Manager shows a yellow question mark on, 'OTHER DEVICES', under which are:-
    Other PCI Bridges Device
    PCI Device
    PCI Simple Communication Controller
    SM Bus Controller
    Video Controller
    All of which have the yellow question mark.

    Could this be my problem and if so, how to I enable these items.
    If not, have you any suggestions please?

    Any help appreciated, Thanks, Arjay

    Sounds like not all the drivers are installed.

    Which drivers and where do I find them? I think this is a Dell computer, should there be a motherboard cd? Arjay

    Theyre here. You need the chipset drivers (install these first). If it gives you the option to install Nvidia firewall, select NO

    The LAN,(maybe in the chipset driver install), the audio, the VGA (if you use onboard video).

    You'll have to find out what the brand/model of the modem (PCI Simple Communication Controller maybe a modem), is, then you'll have to search for them.

    Or double click on this entry, once the LAN drivers have been installed / driver tab / update driver option. See if it will install a driver.

    Do you know what revision the mobo is?? If its not Rev2?
