I am having problems with a new motherboard (Biostar T41 HD). The NIC is not working and I have updated all drivers and checked the bios. Is there anything else I can check? In device manager I have an exclamation mark next to Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller, but can't find a driver for this specific item. I reinstalled the newest RTL 8111D driver to no avail. I get the error message "This device cannot start. Error code 10".

Is there a jumper for the network card on the board ? I used to have a board that could turn off the sound codec on the board.The bios would fully turn it off.Not sure if they do that to network cards but its worth checking.

Just to clarify, you used one of these drivers?

I do not see any jumper on the motherboard for the NIC, plus, device manager does see the device, it just says that the device cannot start. I did install the XP driver from the Biostar website and i also installed the latest driver from Realtek. I've also searched my error through the Microsoft Knowledge Base and they suggested to reinstall the driver, which i have done, but it still doesn't work.

This is the driver your using ? Operating System: Windows 98/ME/2000/XP x86/XP x64/ http://www.biostar-usa.com/upload/Driver/L.../2KXP/setup.exe

Other then that i dont know what to do.

What i would do is try downloading a live cd(Linux) and booting up and seeing if the network card can connected to the internet. Ubuntu does not need any drivers for network cards.

Just to let everyone know, I finally fixed my situation with my onboard NIC not working. Believe it or not, I tried removing my PCIe Video Card and when i turned on my computer with my monitor hooked up to the on board Video ouput, My computer recognized a few new devices (video adapter, audio adapter) plus I noticed my LAN adapter orange light was on. So, now all is working ok, except I haven't tried putting my 1gb video card back in (too scared to mess things up i guess!!!!) Thanks for the help though!!! and no, I do not quite know why this fixed my problem yet, and just to let everyone know, Biostar suggested i either use a PCI Network Card or send in my motherboard for repairs. Go figure!!! thanks!!

A PCI network card...is cheap, easily installed, and there is no loss of system.

Examples at http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....240%20-%20%2410.
