Windows Vista --> XP ; Driver issues abound
#1
I formatted my harddrive from Vista SP1 and installed a fresh XP Pro SP3. Well, now many of my devices don't work and don't recognize any drivers.

Apparently it's Realtek RTL 8139/810x Fast Ethernet Adapter according to some program called Everest. However, I'm missing other drivers too.

Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller
Vido Controller (VGA Compatible)

Computer make is... ET1641-02w

that emachines model does not list it's full specs however it has the built in geforce 7050 and that is built in the chipset so i would think its one of the " 6 " series by nvidia.

please download and install this set of drivers first.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.24.html

sound again is not listed just say's 6.1 audio but knowng emachines it may well be the realtek HD sound so this set of drivers from gigabyte with the built in UAA , intel , microsoft full signed set should work.

if everest has got your lan correct this set of realtek drivers should get it up and running.

or this link if realtek seems to slow

Sound is Realtek, I remember, but I'll try this first.
I'm going to try everything and will get back to you very shortly, thank you very much.

EDIT: Wow, that's the perfectly correct nForce driver and so far that works great, so thank you. I'm currently downloading the other two drivers.

Great job on the audio and video, but I can't get either of the ethernet controller drivers to work. It still says I'm missing both:

Ethernet Controller (Realtek RTL 8139/810x Fast Ethernet Adapter)
and
PCI Simple Connections (Conexant something -- Fax Modem/Soft Data or something)

I'm confused, honestly. The setup goes fine but it never shows up in device manager. =/ Thinking

PCI Simple Connections is a dail up modem and going by the vista downloads at emachines for your model its a motorola.
look on the bottom of the forum for the download section, click modems
then moto.
use the uni driver with that modem and it should work.

now also looking at the vista downloads it list your main lan as nvidia not realtek but its listing a realtek wifi for some strange reason, so you may have a wifi pci card in that pc.
if your main lan is not working it may have been the wrong driver in the nforce set.
so give this set a try.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_630i...16.08.html

it will add extra files to the set up and should give you your main lan back.

now i know realtek do wifi chips but they don't make the cards themself's that done by a third party company such as belkin , e.t.c
if you have a wifi card what you will have to do is shut the pc down, remove the case and just take a look at the card for make and numbers printed on it.
let me know what you find from the card and i maybe able to find the driver.

one last thing,
if installing the nforce set of drivers does not get your main lan working first check in your bios screen and make sure its enabled.
second use device manager and point to the unpacked driver files found in c:nforce folder
you will see the Ethernet Controller folder sitting there.

This model is extremely similar to mine. I have an RJ-45 card for ethernet like this says. Does that help any?

RJ-45 is the standard lan port code, its not he lan card its self so to speak,
to put it in laymans terms its that plug you use to connect a lan card to router.

the specs i have been using are direct from emachines found here.
http://www.emachines.com/products/produc...ET1641-02w

you can see by the vista downloads for this machine what i was telling you about realtek wifi and nvidia ethernet,
i will rip the lan drivers direct from the nvidia drivers if need be and upload them for you.

Okay, thank you. Currently I'm at a friend's house and will try this as soon as I get home (probably this day around 5 or so unless I stay again). So these drivers specifically for Vista won't work I assume? If so, will ripping the drivers for me work? If that would, I would really really appreciate that. I've been trying everything and you're really the first person who's been able to help and I thank you immensely for that.

the vista drivers will not work however this set should as its the same series nforce but the xp version.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_630i...16.08.html

if you still get problems with the lan let me know and i will rip the lan card drivers direct from that nforce driver set and upload it as a stand alone driver for you to download and try.

Ah, yes, this is the one I tried earlier today. I could not seem to get this one working. I tried to redirect the advanced installing to the Ethernet folders, but it just asked me if I wanted to check on the internet, which is of course, impossible.

you just tell xp no then when its time to auto search you choose what driver to install, then browse to the folder.
or you can use add new hardware from control panel, xp will auto pick the ethernet as it has a problem.
then you can choose have disk and again browse to the ethernet folder.

Okay, I will try that just as soon as I get home. Thanks for all your help so far. I hope it's not frustrating lol.

nah its what i do best its not frustrating at all to me as i have faced these problems so many times as a computer tech
to be honest i am a sad man and really enjoy running this site.

Ok. I've installed the ethernet controller, but it has (MOBILE ASSIST) in front of the driver name. Is that any different from the driver without that prefix? Should I reinstall and choose one without that at the beginning?

EDIT: Ah, I see, it was enough to get on the internet, and then Windows Update updated the driver.

Hello again after a long time. I'm helping a friend with a similar issue. I cannot seem to find an Intel 537EP driver. Could you help? Also, I got one that was called that, and now it's installed, but the internet persists on not working, lol. If there's any help you can provide, please let me know. Thank you =)

that modem should be built in vista as its not listed at the microsoft update catalog at all.

last drivers done for that modem before intel removed them from site can be found here.
http://www.davesdrivers.com/forum/showth...hp?tid=604

if the modem is not working test it the following way.
click start, control panel, double click phone and modem.
click modems tab, high light the intel modem then click propertires.
on teh screen that opens, click diagnostics, then click query modem.

Sorry, I meant to make it clear. It's OS is XP, so I really don't know what to do. Double clicking phone and modem leads to a thing where I put in my region, area code, phone number, etc.
Here's a picture if it will help. And thank you once again for your assistance. I appreciate it =)

(Picture omitted) -- Nevermind, I feel silly. A simple cable was missing. Thank you, as always =) Keep up the amazing work, thank you.
