I see you have an open discussion at http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6142_102-535716.html
I offered an example of a chat at hp.com but it appears you passed on that as well as not supplying the model number.
The V2000 is a series with too many models. No one can guess which one you have.
Compaq Presario V2000, XP pro after recent formatting then clean install.
From XP pro device manager I have yellow question marks with !The devices are 1. Mass Storage controller 2. SM Bus Controller3. Video Controller (VGA compatible)
We were discussing this in a previous thread, when I accidentally hit the "resolved" button. Sorry for the re-post.
Lost internet after removing AVAST and installing MS Security Essentials and MS Net Framework 4.0.
Update: Internet now working after using system restore. Takes longer than usual for icons to appear after reboot, drivers still missing as noted in 1st paragraph.
I gathered from previous messages that I am missing vital drivers. What is the easiest way to restore these drivers from scratch since I "nuked" everything including bin folders?
