    My computer, if you can call it that, is having a right old laugh at me. It's not really my computer but one that a few of us share in the house I'm living in. Anyway, one of the lads is always looking up dodgy sites etc and as a result we ended up having to completely format the C: After a few attempts I've successfully installed it again but the following problems are ocurring:

    Display adapters: Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller
    Hard disk controllers: Intel 2801AA Bus Master IDE Controller
    Universal Serial Bus controllers: Intel 82801AA USB Universal Host Controller Sound, video and game controllers: Intel(R) 82801AA/AB AC'97 Audio Controller for AKM 4543

    I obviously have no sound.

    Here's the PC info:

    Also, when I start the PC is says, in a black DOS window, that I'm missing the following files:
    vnetsup.vxd
    vredir.vxd
    dfs.vxd


    Then when Windows begins, I get a popup error message relating to: msnp32.dll


    Downloaded: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-file...es.shtml?msnp32

    and

    http://members.driverguide.com/driver/deta...?driverid=35718

    This is really getting to me now. I've downloaded the drivers and saved them in C:\Windows\config. When I try to install them by specifying a location, or otherwise, it still says "Windows did not locate any new drivers for this hardware" The 3 pieces of h/w I'm having most issues with is:

    Intel Firmware Hub
    PCI Card
    PCI Communication Device


    Also, the System Board Extension for PnP BIOS shows a yellow !



    If any whizzkid has a solution for this, could you please help

    That isn't the proper way to install device drivers. You need to go into device manager, delete the devices that are listed with question marks or quotation marks. Reboot the computer and when Windoze starts it will see there are new devices that need to be configured. Have the drivers ready in a folder on the drive and when it asks for a location of the driver point it to that folder and that should take care of it.

    Done this countless times. No joy. Friend told me I would be better off installing all the motherboard drivers

    Yes. See if you can find the cd that came with the motherboard. It should have all the drivers you need on it and probably a setup program for installing the drivers.

    Ahh, I have a restore CD but not the one for this PC. It's for a different Packard Bell but same model etc. However when I try to use it, it says the cd serial no is not for this pc. Any way around this?

    You can download the latest Chipset INF, Application Accelerator, and Graphics driver from here: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scr...8&OSFullName=All+Operating+Systems&submit=Go!

    However you will need to download the Audio drivers froms the manufacturer of your motherboard or your computer. For example if its a Packard Bell then you should visit their site for the sound drivers and any other missing drivers, like the modem or LAN (which is the PCI communications device)

    As for the missing files, they relate to networking. If you're missing them right after reinstalling Windows then the install did not go properly or your CD is not good (or someone removed something they should not have). If this is a clean install of Windows then I strongly suggest your reformat and reinstall again.
