Lan Drivers Help

Recommended Posts

I'm helping a friend out trying to get his laptop to connect with the internet. I am trying to install the correct drivers for it, but when I install them I get an error "invalid access to memory location."

What does this mean?

What does this mean?

What's the specific brand and model of the computer?

It is a Toshiba Satellite A105-S2021. I got the drivers from there website. When i got into the device manager it says, "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load this drivers required for this device (Code 31).

I have also tried a netgear usb adaptor. And that says "The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28).

This computer is running windows XP.

I got all the problems fixed now.

First thing i did was run Spybot search and destroy. That found like 150 items, Which i believe was preventing me from doing some of the things i wanted to do.

After that i went into safe mode and Uninstalled the drivers and then reinstalled them. And now everything works fine.

I don't know why i didn't think of this earlier. It would have saved me a lot of trouble.

I tend to run a crapware scanner on a computer of someones else's that I am helping with. Just because. But then again, after the crap is gone, they will get infected within a week anyways. It's an endless circle.
