Did't the laptop come witha driver disc, instruction book or a pdf file?

If you have internet access, try running Slimdrivers (free). I've used it numerous times in a similar situation to yours, and it usually points to the correct drivers from the manufacturers website.

when you say you "had to do a reformat my laptop" how did you do this? as I believe e-system laptops and pcs come with a built in 'back to factory image' which includes all the drivers and restores it back to how it was when first left factory.

he installed a new windows xp on the laptop which removed the partition so he has informed me and says he can not remember what he did with the cd if it did come with one so im still not any wiser all i really need is to get the drivers for the wireless then i can find the rest of the drivers online

Download Portable SIW on another PC, transfer to flash drive and run it on the laptop. Should give you the info on your hardware so you can search for the drivers.

Why not just connect with ethernet cable to get it online so you can search for drivers when you have run SIW.

also, Might be worth looking in Disc Management to check if the partition with factory image really has gone. You should be able to boot straight into it if you make it 'Active'

Or get an Wireless dongle and use that.

Ignore last thought that you were tring to connect to Wireless.
