I mean this sincerely thank you both very much.
As for my computer... I bought it used from a friend. I believe it was purchased from HP, it is an HP d530C. I believe the mobo is HP too... but I am having a hard time finding the model number. It has a few after market parts I believe, such as my old nVidia 6600 GT, and a Wireless internet card (which I don't use any longer, as I am hardwired to the router). The ports for ethernet on the back, and audio look like they are in the mobo, so i assume that would mean it is all HP drivers, I just need the model number, which is evading me.
I went to HP's website, and found my computer which had a list of all the drivers. It was... This
site. Would this be the appropriate site for me?
Now, I would assume, for Ethernet drivers, i would get the "Network", as it is labeled.
I will try again to burn them...
I should mention, I have no original discs due to having to move a ton this last year. I only got XP due to torrent, although it has an OEM sticker on top, which accepted my serial number.
Smash... You mentioned ubuntu... Would now possibly be a good time to pop that disc in to get my internet? or would the drivers I download be different than the ones I need for XP Pro? Edited, Mar 1st 2009 12:30pm by MYteddy
I found a barcode sticker on my motherboard, but I am unable to discern what numbers are what.
I am Googling them, but figured I would post in case someone is ablle to make better sense of this.
Under the barcode: IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
It is arranged pretty much like that on the sticker, note that all of the "0" are zero's. Edited, Mar 1st 2009 12:48pm by MYteddy
