    Hi.

    I have just reinstalled Windows xp Media Center + sp3 on the above pc.
    The drivers for more or less everything have not been found by Windows.

    Does anyone know where I can download a full set of drivers for this pc.

    If not, I will probably have to spend the next few days trying to identify the motherboard or all the different chips.


    Thanks for any help

    Rob

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.(y)
    I have already tried the Philips site & apparently they do not make pcs. (they are branded Philips for pcworld)

    I have since opened the pc & identified the mobo as an ECS 945p-m3 v1.0b
    I have downloaded the only drivers they have for this board (ide inf & lan). these sorted out a couple of driver issues including sm bus, but the majority of errors remain. These include the onboard lan??:confused: sound serial + numerous others.

    As well as all these, I have to find vid, tv card, & wireless drivers. These I will have to identify by the chipsets as they are un-branded add in cards.

    (n)I hate Philips pcs. I have worked on an ls1600 before & struggled to find drivers & to this day the front media panel still does not work due to there being no drivers available.:mad:

    Any more help from anyone would be appreciated.


    Thanks

    Rob

    Hello Rob

    I got a Philips 2700 off the dump with no hard drive. Loaded XP but so many drivers were missing it was not much use. Fitted a second HDD and put Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx on it and it seems to work fine without tweeks. Ubuntu is great for internet use as it boots up fast ( <60 seconds), shuts down fast (<10 seconds) and does not seem to slow down with use. It takes about half an hour to load cold from DVD / CD and half an hour to load updates. Much quicker than XP.

    Thanks, altoduo
