Ethernet Controler Problem
by tyrantiger - 1/18/07 6:26 AM
As I was using the computer, it suddenly froze (happening a lot lately), I couldnt do anything but pressed the restart button as usual.
After restarting, I was prompted that a new hardware was found. Surprisingly, it was my Ethernet Controller.
I followed whatever it said to try update the driver, though it should have had already, for I have been using the computer on ADSL for over a year now. But the update didnt workout.
And when I check the property of my Ethernet Controller in Device Manager, it said this The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
So I went google, (btw, Im now using a dial up connection which doesnt require the use of Ethernetwishing my ADSL back of coz), and found this article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123 . after doing what it said, I rebooted, hoping for a working Ethernet..
But, things didnt turn out smooth, now I get the error message This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1), which now means I have to install the driver for it.
The problem is, I dont know where I can find the driver for my Ethernet, though I think it came with my motherboard Gigabyte 8I875. And after downloading the LAN driver from this page http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=1715 and running the file - MSIEXEC.EXE, and rebooting. STILL isnt fixed..
Now Im getting very worried, please, can someone give some idea of how to fix this.
