Specs: Windows XP
My sons hard drive went out in his computer and I put a new harddrive in and am having trouble locating the drivers, my ex bought it used and didn't get cd's with it.

On the back it says Gateway mfatxpnt esx 500 s and on the motherboard it says intel and the AA number is A81583
This is the board but I cannot find the drivers on intels or gateways website anywhere
I also of course cant connect to the internet on that computer until I get the ethernet drivers, so am using another computer to search, so I cant use the intel update utility and it also says it doesn't work for discontinued stuff, and this computer is from 2003

Download SIW without the installer from the link below. install it to a flash drive and run SIW to determine the actual motherboard model number.

Is this or is this not a Gateway computer? If it is, all you have to do is go to the Gateway download site & enter the make/model of the system (not the motherboard):

If you're using an old Gateway board in a generic tower & don't know the model of the system the board came out of, you're going to have to track down the individual drivers. The following site has the board specs in detail. For example, the onboard LAN (ethernet) is the Intel 82562ET.

So you go to the Intel Download site & either enter 82562ET in the search box or use the "Find downloads by product name" section of the page:
