    Well I was round there from 7 till 10 last night because every time you opened internet explorer the whole computed died. So I decided that it was full of crap so reinstalled XP. Now everything works but cant connect to the network because of a lack of driver :(

    Download Everest Free Edition here...

    Copy it to flash drive or cd, install on the misbehaving machine, and let it tell you what NIC is installed...

    It's almost definitely part of the motherboard or came with the computer. Go to HP, and download the correct driver.

    Apparently this PC uses Intel 810 chipset, info here copied from Intel site:

    Integrated LAN adapter (LAN Down)
    Recent Intel chipsets integrate the Media Access Control (MAC) portion (MAC) of the LAN adapter into the I/O Controller Hub (ICH) of the chipset. The Physical (PHY) portion of the LAN adapter is not integrated, so a separate LAN chip must still be used on the motherboard to support LAN functionality. Additionally, some motherboards use a PCI LAN adapter chip that does not use the integrated MAC portion of the ICH.

    Due to the potential variations, drivers from the system or motherboard manufacturer should be used. For technical support information, check with the system or motherboard manufacturer. If you have an Intel® motherboard, support information is available on the support page for the particular motherboard: http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/

    LAN Adapter card (PCI card)
    Drivers from the LAN adapter card manufacturer should be used. For technical support information, check with the LAN adapter card manufacturer. If you have an Intel network adapter, support information is available on the site for the particular network adapter: http://support.intel.com/support/network/adapter/pro100/21397.htm

    Go to HP's web site, and download the drivers for this model computer. The link has already been posted. You download the drivers to a CD, DVD, flash drive, or external hard drive on the computer you're using to type these messages.

    I have no idea why you're looking anywhere else for drivers.
