Hi I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP Home on an Everex Stepnote laptop. I have several drivers missing. I'm not sure where to look online to download them or how to find out what the manufacturers of the devices are to download the drivers from them. The drivers needed are: Ethernet controller, Multimedia Audio Controller, PCI Simple Communications Controller, and Video Controller (VGA Compatible). Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

From what I read, those were a Wal-Mart exclusive with a cpu made by Via (no kidding) for the low-end market.

Them's the key things to Google for, anyway.

The model number is a NM3500W. I guess that is the model, it was on a sticker on the bottom. I can't find any other model numbers on it.

Can you run Everest under my signature and attach the report to the thread.

You may have to download it from another PC that is connected to the internet.
Save it to a flash drive or CD
Install it on this Everex.
Run it and save the full report to a flash drive or CD
Transfer it to the working PC and attach the report to the thread.

The other option is to go to the Device Manager
Right click on the error>Properties>Details Tab
Post the info you find under Device Instance ID
Do this for each error you have.

Bill

It worked great for 2 of the problems, but I still have errors for the Ethernet Controller and the PCI Simple Communications Controller. Thanks for your excellent assistance.

Thanks again,
