    Welcome to Press F1

    Is that model a notebook or PC? i can't find the exact match on the compaq website.

    Hi...it's a desktop 6136HK as your link showed. I've downloaded and installed the 6 drivers shown there and still no joy.

    My compaq restore CD's are for XP chinese version - broadband works fine, I just can't read the chinese characters.

    When I install my english version of XP and the 6 drivers above no Ip address shows on network connections .

    Once I get this sorted I then need to try and get back my photos and data from the dead HDD - HD spins but BIOS will not autodetect...cheers

    It doesnt look like the HP site has LAN driivers for 2000 or XP.

    Was the LAN onboard (I take it , it is), or did u buy a separate PCI ethernet card??

    If its onboard, u may have to give HP a ring, and ask them where to get the drivers.

    Can you get it onto WIndows update, hard I know with not ehternet, but Windows update may have the driver for it.

    If not, get PC Wizard, and find the model of the motherboard, and search on that.
