    Hi,

    This is my first post and I'm really hoping you can help me out.

    I've just had to reformat and reinstall and it seems I'm missing some drivers. I'm missing the ethernet controller and the VGA video controller.

    Any ideas on how I can fix this?

    I'm using a Dell Dimension 9150 with XP Media Centre but I've no idea which drivers I should be using and can find no clues on the Dell install disk or the Dell site.

    Thanks!

    Bette, I can't update Windows as I need the internet...no ethernet controller.

    Thanks Courtney but any idea what drivers I'm looking for? I've updated the chipset already.
