Thanks for the replies! Now I was able to clear two of the four issues... I still have the PCI simple communications controller, and the ethernet error showing on device manager. I downloaded chipset drivers from gateway and directed the computer directly to them on the device manager, but I can't find anything for the remaining two... And I can't get online to check for drivers... I have to go downstairs to my other comp and put the files on a flash drive and go all the way back upstairs only to have to come back down when they fail
. Now again, I'm no computer expert, quite the contrary, but isn't the simple pci a 56k modem?
I could be way off base but that's what I thought... And I assumed this is why I can't get online... or is it another issue? I got a program someone recommended to check system specs... I think it was siv or something... and it sees my wireless card... see attachment.
oh also I don't know what compatability mode is lol
Thanks again guys I know what its like to have to tralk to someone who has no clue what they're doing.
