After a fresh install of win xp (on my other laptop), I am missing 6 drivers. I have been searching and downloading drivers and after many failed attempts I am coming here for help.
I have downloaded the correct drivers from the websites, but after installing them nothing has changed. Device manager doesn't find them and I still dont have internet? Obviously I'm doing something wrong but....what?

here are the devices and hardware id's

ethernet controller PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_1014&SUBSYS_833117AB&REV_01
ethernet controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_101E&SUBSYS_05491014&REV_03
multimedia audio controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C5&SUBSYS_05371014&REV_01
PCI modem PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C6&SUBSYS_05251014&REV_01
unknown device ACPI\IBM0068 *IBM0068
video controller (VGA compatible) PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4C57&SUBSYS_05301014&REV_00

Thanks for any advice.

Make sure you input the correct series, subseries, machine type, model and operating system. The driver downloads are executable files (.exe) so you just need to run them and let it install the specific driver. Download and install the chipset drivers first (might take care of the unknown device).

If I remember correctly, the last time I set up a Lenovo computer, the driver exe only expands the downloaded file into a folder on the C: drive and contained readme files for what to install for what I had. Seam to remember the file names being "odd". Just a thought.
