Re: virgin media freedom netbook driver ?

Most netbooks, laptops and PC motherboards are supplied with chipset drivers on CD/DVD in case of a rebuild being requred, I don't know if this is the case with the Virgin provided netbooks though.

 

Some netbooks, laptops and PC's are built with a recovery partition (hidden) which will rebuild the computer to its default condition (the state you first received it in) when one of the function keys is pressed during the boot process (F10 for example). Again I don't know if this is the case with Virgin.

 

If you can identify the WiFi chipset used in the VM Freedom netbook you should be able to find the appropriate drivers on the web, if not, you may have to contact the Virgin helpdesk and ask if they have the drivers available for download.... good luck to you if you have to go down that route!

 

As a first stop, try here for drivers:- http://www.diskdepot.co.uk/blog/index.php/virgin-media-freedom-device-drivers/ which (apparently) includes 

 

  • Audio
  • Chipset
  • EventService
  • Graphic
  • LAN
  • Touchpad, and
  • Wireless

Large file, approx. 64 megabytes

 

I have no personal knowledge as to the veracity of the above drivers, and any and all actions are taken at your own risk.

Re: virgin media freedom netbook driver ?

Hi thanks,

I've got it but the page it redirects to says to install "Vista_Win7_R236 file" but I can't seem to find that one within the download bundle.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks

That file is not within the download package, it's a separate download which can be found here: http://www.download3k.com/Install-Realtek-HD-ALC-880-Audio-CODECs.html
