I have a friend who has just formatted thier elonex exentia media center pc, she does not have any drivers that came with the machine.
i have looked all over the internet but have not yet found any, i have tried going to elonex and xentia webpages and have found that they are no longer up and running which maks me a little angry becuase they should atleast be support for these machines, seem like that company has went bankrupt or into liquidation ?!? :confused:

Could anyone at all help me find all the drivers for the Elonex - Exentia

If you can identify the parts inside of the machine, it would be possible to go directly to the individual manufacturer's' websites and download the drivers that way.

For instance, if the motherboard is based on an Intel chipset, you could download the drivers for that from Intel...

If the video card is from nvidia, you could go their site and download the drivers for it from there...

etc etc etc.

If you want too, you could provide the specifications for the system here and I'm sure people here or myself could point to the sites you'd need to go.

Or if you can use something like Everest Home to Identify the Motherboard you can go to the motherboard website and download the proper drivers for it most times. you can download it from here. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html
You can then copy it to CD then install it on her computer and use it. It is free. And in most cases will tell you the Manufacturer and model of the Motherboard.

To be able to identify if there is another company involved in the production of the drivers for the Wireless adapter, it is possible that the motherboard manufacturer (unless Elonex) manufactured their own motherboard) would list the drivers needed. Does EVerest show the Wireless adapter at all?

its been a few weeks now and still no luck.. i have looked through search engines and certain driver sites for the correct drivers but still not have found them.
i know its a big favour for someone to spend time looking for these its just i feel like im looking in all the wrong places. or even if someone has some driver sites that they could show me and i could look for myself.
thanks agin

Your elonex is the same as a Gateway 610. Go to the gateway site . Download the drives for the gateway 610. write them to a disc. Unzip them on the elonex and install.

It took me 3 weeks to find this out - I got so p******d off with the thing!!

Good luck!!

Hi

I am having the same problem with finding drivers for my exentia media centre. Did you manage to get the gateway drivers? If so did they work?

I am a beginner at all of this and couldn't seem to get them to work????
