Windows 7 64 Bit, does not detect ANY network adapters. We installed windows in August and it has been fine, now for some reason it simply doesn't detect any adapters at all and does not display a Network Adapters heading in the device manager folder tree.
The hardware in question is an onboard LAN card on a ASUS Sabertooth X58 motherboard, the lan card is listed in the bios as a RTL8110SCLAN
I have checked to be sure that the device is enabled in the BIOS, as well as disabling other on board devices in case there was some kind of conflict. I also tried installing an add on LAN card and that card is not detected either. I have also reset the bios and removed the battery etc. I have tried reinstalling the chipset and other drivers and I have uninstalled windows updates that happened near the time the network adapter vanished.
I used RKILL and ran ComboFix and Malwarebytes to clean up a few minor virus/spyware files. But that too has not helped.
This is my first post, but I have been a big fan for a long time you guys do great things.
Please help before I get any more grey hair.
