    if you can get on line, go into device manager, and let windows search the web for the latest driver;

    windows key +break>hardwre>device manager>double click this particular device, go to driver, go to update driver

    kinda hard to get online since my wireless card will not initialize and therefore is not able to access my wireless access point which would then allow it to access the internet to get an updated driver

    ya...that's what I was afraid of...if you can get to another box, try to go to the manufactureres website, and download the driver to floppy
