I have been having a problem with this for a while now...

I have a computer that has a network card that wont work. The device manager gives me the message that "this device cannot start (code 10)"

I have tried numerous things to try to get it to work including reformatting, uninstalling the device, trying a different nic, installing and uninstalling the device through the device manager, and others.

YET IT STILL DOESNT WORK!! :thumbsup:

If you have a fix for this or have experienced this similar problem, please respond with some help.

Thank you very much :flowers:

Code 10 is usually a driver issue. Info on Device Manager error codes (and what to do about them) can be found HERE.

It is a realtek card (pci slot)...

I get the same message on the pci nic and the onboard ethernet adapter.

i have tried taking out the pci nic and the onboard ethernet slot still gets the "code 10"

Albert, i have looked at all articles published by microsoft and they are all pretty worthless when it comes to troubleshooting....as i posted origionally, i have uninstalled and reinstalled everything..... i know what code 10 means---device cannot start....... the problem is that it seems no known fix is available....

i am at a point where nothing i have seen or tried gets the device to start

please someone....reply to this

Try to uninstall and re-install you drivers while in Safe Mode.

You can try removing all hidden devices/drivers...which might be preventing proper install/function of the devices. Then, follow that up with a reboot and an new effort to install fresh drivers.
