Let me comment that the make of the chipset for laptops rarely is what you need to know. I just head to the laptop's maker's web site if the restore or driver CD has gone missing.

In closing, Windows, even in Microsoft's latest offering rarely has your drivers.

That can be easy to solve (if someone tells you).

In reply to: Hi

Here's the quick method I use.

1. Delete the .PWL files in C:\Windows.
2. Set the login type to WINDOWS in the Network Control Panel.
3. Reboot, enter a name but do not touch the password box or click cancel. Click Ok for the last time.
