One of my work mates have a Packard Bell Easynote which got trashed by several viruses. Reloaded Win XP ok (seems to be a generic xp disk not a recovery disk) and now it wont reconise the sound card, modem, or video card. I put SP2 on but still didnt reconised these. There is no model sticker on the laptop? Apparently it was brought from Bond & Bond a few years ago?

Packard Bell Easynote
p/n: PN07000378
s/n: 101281610138
(Spec: AMD XP-M 2400+ (1.6GHz), 256MB, 30GB, DVD/CDRW, SIS chipset, 10/100 eth, firewire, SIS 7001 USB 2.0, 14.1" TFT)

Does anyone know where I could get WinXP drivers for Sound card, modem & Video card?

I had this same laptop, sold it, and threw out the Ghost backup of a clean XP install (with all drivers) about 3 months ago!

Its a rebadged NEC if that helps you find the drivers at all.

Visit for New Zealand based Hosted Exchange, Virtual Servers, Web Hosting, FTP Backup & more.

The drivers are on the NZ packard bell site -

You will need to know the easynote model i.e easynote m or easynote e etc. This is written under the serial number ( I have an M5 series)

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

It looks like the C3 from the pictures so I'll try that.... and that works.
Thanks for all the help.
