I'm kicking myself for not bringing my cd's with me in the move... but aside from that.

I've been fighting to get the ethernet controller to work on my Asus m2n-x motherboard. From what I have seen it uses a nforce 520 ethernet system but any drivers i put in still give me that annoyingly mocking yellow question mark.

Am I installing the wrong component? Does my computer suddenly hate me? :|

I'm usually a patient person but after 4-5 attempts at downloading, thumb driving from one comp to the other, installing, and repeating after finding out it doesn't work... it saddens me. :thumbsup:.

Wish they could just put all the files in a downloadable package. Installing them with out the cds is a hassle.

Anyone know of anything I should try?. If there's an "Essential" download list of things I need for this mother board that'd be swell. There's numerous things that this mother board seems able to do that it just clutters up what I'm looking for :|.

Let's start from the beginning...
What's wrong with your computer?
Is it some new Windows installation, or you just lost internet connection, or....?

ah sorry, Fresh reinstall of windows after formatting.

Don't have the discs that came with mother board with me, so attempted to download drivers via another computer, everything works and is installed except for ethernet controller, downloaded drivers for it (asus m2n-x motherboard/nforce 520) and it still persists on giving me a yellow question mark :thumbsup:.

contemplating uninstalling all the drivers and just trying again, to see if maybe one of them went in wrong and is conflicting with the system :S. Dunno.. I'm a software guy, not a hardware lol.

Did you install chipset driver?
That always goes first and without it some other components (like ethernet) may not work.

i downloaded all the files that were on asus website, suppose the order could've messed things up. Will have to fight with it more when the urge to huck it out the window lessens :thumbsup:

i'll reinstall then try a certain order for install, gotta track down what all the random numbers equal out to be for the drivers though :| cant just name em "Chipset Driver/Install First"

well found more asus chipset drivers, of which i had apparently already downloaded and installed as it asked to over right. Upon trying to install them it puts my into and endless loop of asking to uninstall then restart and asking again. Contemplating just formatting again lol, would potentially save my time. Providing they installed correctly the 2nd time that is...

It may be the fastest way and remember to install chipset driver first, this time around.
Good luck :thumbsup:
