Reinstall XP - Device Errors


dogbreath1

Likes # 0

Have just reinstalled XP SP 2 on a Dell laptop that was seriously infected with malware.

Installation went OK but am getting errors in Device Manager, Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, O2Micro CCID SC Reader, PCI Device, SM Bus Controller and Video Controller. Another problem is I cannot find the device driver CD's.

Looking for advice on how to proceed!

Doesn't go direct (last link) but I can post better now. Have a look if your Dell is only a D630 without any letters behind it.

It is a Broadcom. The link works. I downloaded and installed the Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller but 'Network Controller' is still showing an error in Device Manager.
