    Driver Issue

    Happy New Year to everybody at Edugeek!

    Got 2 Fujitsu E3500 PCs just been reloaded with Windows XP. Installed the drivers from the Fujitsu website, however something isn't right.

    If I install the audio driver it asks me to insert the Windows XP SP3 disc, I do that but it never finds the files its looking for. It also does this with devices you plug in such as a iPhone or USB Internet Dongle. In the case of the USB Internet Dongle on a Windows 7 machine or another XP machine its fine, it finds the driver fine. Same with the iPhone 4S, I plug it into my Windows 7 laptop and its fine and it also fine when plugged into another Windows XP machine.

    This morning the network card died on both of them and I had to reinstall the driver.

    Any ideas? Corrupt installation of Windows? Would putting Windows 7 on there help?

    Any advice would be gratefully recieved.

    George.

    Did you use the OEM image or a fresh install of XP SP3? Windows 7 would be better, subject to the availability of licenses!

    I just used a fresh install of Windows XP SP3 from a disc. No recovery partition or anything so I had to use it.

    I have a similar model Fujitsu's and seem to remember a bios update that had a fix for simething network card related. Might be worth with a check. Also I would get yourself onto W7 if there's a choice in the matter.

    Thanks will do the BIOS update tonight.

    They would need at least another gig of RAM to go onto Windows 7. Currently got 1GB but a okish processor in them!

    You should be alright with 1gb. If anything W7 works better than XP on the same hardware and obviously XP will be end of life come end of April. Anyone please correct me if they disgree?

    Any drivers missing in device manager?

    Try reinstalling chipset drivers again, sounds like PnP drivers may have been missing from your install media.
