Hewlett Packard - HP Pavilion N3310 Driver and Specifications

Somebody brought in a laptop today, it was an HP Pavilion N3310. The owner asked me to do a reformat. The OS is Windows 98 and he wanted it to stay that way. After formatting the said laptop, it occurred to me that there was no driver for the video card, sound card and modem. So I look up on the internet but it was hard to look for the exact specification of this laptop.

Fortunately, I saw someone at driverguide.com uploaded the driver for the built in vga. There's also available sound and modem driver. But the problem is, after downloading, the modem is still looking for the driver. Also, the first vga driver that i downloaded was only meant for Windows XP. So i download another one, and it works. After a little research I found the correct driver for the modem and soundcard at the ESS website. I notice that the file that was uploaded in driverguide is for Win95 and Win98 first edition, so that is the reason why it didn't work.

Here's the download links for those of you who also need it:

PCI Audio/Modem Combo Device - you only need one driver for these two
Exact model: Maestro3.comm ES1980 Maestro-3 Audio + ES56CVM-PI Modem
Win95/98 vxd

Video Card

Thank you for this referral on the HP Pavilion and the driver versions. This will help me troubleshoot some HP series woes.
