ethernet drivers and usb2

Post by gasman76 on Sat Jun 18, 2011 4:20 pm

Hello guys i was on the malware forum for a few weeks with a pc that was beyond cleaning. So i bit the bullit and re formated the hard drive, fortunatly for me the system is an IBM with lenovo back up so a few clicks later and my system was empty but clean and a fresh xp install to boot!!! The problem is i cannot connect to the net as the driver is missing for the broadcom ethernet and the usb2. I am using a doner pc at present so i managed to find the drivers via the net unzipped and burnt to a CD-r and also a memory stick altho the stick was no good due to the usb2 not functioning. I tried to update via the hardware installer but im having no luck, computer says noooooooo. Any simple solution would be great ?? many thanks Dave in the uk... Hooray!

So did the CD drive allow you to access the drivers?

What is the model number of the laptop?

Sir Swats program may be the best way to go. I Googled the type you listed and didn't find anything concrete. Even IBM's site didn't really give the clear path to a driver i was expecting. Is there another name on the computer like "ThinkCenter C52" or something of that nature?
