hello, my names nik. Smile

my friend recommended this site as the best so i really hope you guys can help me as im nearly pulling my hair out.

i have a :
'Asus Laptop' (which i bought in china, and got no disks with it, except a pirate copy of xp)
'intel core2 duo cpu'
't7250' @ 2ghz
2gig ram
Nvidia geforce 8400m G 128 mb.

ok so i recently was silly and managed to get my system infected.The result of this was i had to format and reinstall. I had assumed that i could easily find the drivers again online. this seems to not be the case.i found the majority of them except for my graphics driver(vga)and a few others like my "audio device on high definition bus". They have that yellow question mark along with 3 other base system devices.

i am mainly concerned about my graphics card as i cant view web pages with out lag time when scrolling down etc. I have been to the asus web page, nvidia web page, downloaded many many drivers that all say they should work and just dont. when i install it says cannot find hardware to match the software, or this is for vista, when it says xp on the download.

this is making me hate my lovely laptop. please help!!


if you need any othe rinfo please feel free to ask.

thank you in advance. Smile

It would help to know the model number of the laptop. This is usually on a sticker on the bottom.

According to Asus' website there are 3 models - Pro80Sc, Pro80Se and Pro80Sr. I'm assuming it's a Pro80Sc.

If you go to this page, then select Notebook - Pro80 Series - Pro80Sc and select Search you should be prompted to select the operating system - select Windows XP. From here you should be able to download the drivers you require - save them to your Desktop and run them from there.

You will need the VGA drivers, and from the Audio section you will need the UAA bus driver and Audio driver and the Audio Driver - note that the UAA bus driver and Audio driver should be installed before the Audio driver.

Base System Device is usually the card reader - these drivers are in the PCMCIA section of the Asus website.

There are 2 different network cards - wired and wireless. The wired network card drivers are in LAN on the site, and wireless in "wireless".
