by Vanguard12345-22606096745419013503944888355736 / February 6, 2010 2:04 AM PST

I just installed XP onto my computer and I cannot find a LAN driver that works for the life of me! I have an Asus a8n-sli premium motherboard. I went to the Asus website and downloaded the drivers they had their but for some reason they didn't work, Can anyone help me?

A8N-SLI Premium...LAN drivers

Here is the link for all the LAN drivers for your particular board; I have found with my ASUS mobo that sometimes it depends on which download site you get the drivers from. Basically; if the driver doesn't install properly from one site, try another.

Here is the direct link for Windows XP 32 bit LAN drivers, choose the most recent (the top one, Version V7.31.1.3), it should work.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it could be that your onboard ethernet adapter has crapped out, in which case you will have to buy an adapter...they're pretty cheap these days.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
