    I take it that you didn't have the Factory Restore Capability available to you? This would have reloaded all the correct drivers for you. Although it would have also loaded all the Crapware that HP/Compaq bloats a computer with. You rally did not need to download all the network drivers. You would need to identify which Network Adapter your computer uses then install only the driver for that one.

    You're right, no restore partition. The reason I downloaded all three network drivers is that each one did not work. I was trying to find the right one by process of elimination. Only three available and all three do not work. Out of this comes this symptom, I get the blue screen with this announcement
    NET 8511.SYS-Address F89OD151 base at F890C000, Datestamp 3a35a42f
    Stop:0x00000083 (0x(0000005, 0xF890D151, 0xF6EE06C8,0x00000000)
    Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

    Wouldn't that suggest and IRQ conflict? Won't reseting the BIOS to default setting correct the blue screen? What is shadowing.
