Hi guys, 

so I recently changed my BIOS chip because of a problem I was having with my peripherals, I installed the new BIOS fine; however my LAN isn't working I am getting the Error Code 10. 

My motherboard is an Asus M5A78-l/USB3 with my new BIOS installed with the latest drivers. 

I have tried reinstalling some drivers but no luck yet. 

Many Thanks, 

Luke

Do you have a yellow exclamation mark next to your LAN adapter in Device Manager. If you do right click, select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware ID's in the dropdown box. Copy and Paste the first line in your next post.

Because you updated the BIOS, did you set it back to default settings after the  update? I would also look in BIOS to see if there is a setting for the NIC and make sure it is enabled.

 

Edit: After the drive update, did you reboot the computer?

it was an updated BIOS, however it was actually a new chip that I had placed in because I wiped my old one. The new chip installed seemed fine but I'm not sure if I did set it to default.

 

I did use the jumper for 10 seconds, if you mean NIc in BIOS I do have The Controller set to "enabled" there is another setting which is something to do with ethernet or boot with ROM config.

If the Controller is enabled then I am not sure what the problem is. The second setting is for booting from LAN which you do not need.

 

You can install the chipset driver from the MB support site. That may or may not help.

 

When you said replaced the chip, do you mean you replaced the BIOS ROM chip? If the MB is still under warranty, I would RMA it.

 

If the warranty is gone you may want to look at purchasing a USB to Ethernet adapter. For faster speeds there is the USB 3 adapter or PCIe adapter.

I did install the new chipset drivers nothing worked,

 

yeah the chip was a new BIOS ROM chip, I tried to update my old one but it wiped it instead; the new one came programmed with the latest BIOS update.

 

the MB is in warranty, but the MB should be fine; I had my LAN working fine before I changed the BIOS.

Did you get the BIOS chip from Asus? Does it have the latest firmware. According to the MB support site the latest version is Version 1701 for the MB but it is dated 2013.

 

I think something in the BIOS is preventing the NIC from functioning correctly. If ASUS provided the BIOS ROM, I would contact them and ask for another or contact the company you purchased the ROM chip from.

 

You can try disabling the controller in BIOS. Save the settings. Then enable it again. Save the settings.

Does it mean anything that I can ping

 

127.0.0.1 and it works, but pinging Microsoft ends up with "could not find host microsoft.com"

I am not sure but 127.0.0.1 is a loopback address to your own computer. I believe that is why you can ping it.

right so I disabled then enabled unfortunately didn't fix it,

 

the new chip I bought from a different company called MyTech.

 

I have noticed that on the new chip something else pops up at the start with "american megatrends" a black screen with text but it flies by too fast to read my old bios never did this; is that just because of new software? or is there something to configure it does say press 2 commands to execute something but i'm not sure

Not sure about those two commands. I think Mr Tech should be able to answer that. Good Luck.
