HP Compaq Presario CQ50-108CA - Ethernet Controller driver for Win XP

Dears,

 

I have a notebook HP Compaq Presarion CQ50-108CA running windows XP Professional.

 

I'm looking for the driver for the Ethernet controller

I have searched everywhere but I cannot find it, all I found is the driver for the wireless adapter

 

I'll be very grateful if anyone could help me in this.

Thanks in advance

You're very welcome.

 

You need to install the nForce chipset driver which will install the network controller.

Hi:

 

It probably has a Realtek PCIe 10/100 network adapter.

 

Download and install the 2nd file listed at the link below.

What is the VEN\PCI information?

 

In the device manager expand the network adapter device and right click on the wired adapter device then selet properties.Post the PCI\VEN alphanumerice string.

Once you post the information then we will see if the driver for Windows XP is available somewhere.

[ Edited ]

That is the Nvidia MCP78 NIC (Network controller)

 It is difficult to find this one for XP. It is used mostly in desktop motherboards. 

 

Best regars,
