First, check ur device manager n see if the driver for the network adapter is dia, then, we will know what next to do
it is not everytime you experience a problem with ur system that u have to format,

the most likely cause of your problem is that the new operating system did not automatically install the drivers for some hardwares including your network adapter.
1 use the device manager to confirm the above-
2 Use another computer to go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer and download the driver(s) you need for the network adapter and any other ones you need e.g audio,vga,etc.It is FREE
3Copy the driver that you downloaded to your computer via flash drive.
4 Install it on your computer
I hope it helps.

just check the website of your laptop maker and search for the drivers with your laptop model number
drivers will be given in respect to your model, so just download and install but make sure download the one that is compatible with your window either vista or xp. good luck

The yellowish color shows that the drivers are either not installed or needs repair.
Best solution is get an original device driver for your Mini and install. On the alternative, take it to a very competent engineer to help you fix it. I would not sell the idea of downloading drivers from the net if u don't know where to look, you might be downloading and installing virus.

Once on the website of your computer's manufacturer,look for the driver downloads page and then look for your particular desktop/laptop and the operating system you have installed on it.It's very EASY and FREE.
