well my windows got messed up, so i used the windows repair option from the CD.
it repaired,,when i got back in windows , my internet wasnt working.
i noticed that my "nvidia nforce networking controller" was missing from "my network places"...i tried to reinstall drivers from motherboard CD. (nforce drivers).
didnt work.. - right now im thinking , well the windows repair didnt work so well.

i formated,, now im back to fresh start..i pop in my CD to install all my nforce drivers..
im done...and wait my internet doesnt work?
i noticed that "nvidia nforce networking controller" is not in my networking places..
which it should be reconized after installing drivers...it wasn't.

i look everywhere in my device manager..there is no sort of ethernet controller to be found!
mind you,, it is built into the board.

i did system restore back to 1 hour before,, before i installed any drivers.
i check my unreconnized hardware..i have vga card..sound card..ide crap.. and no ethernet controller!?

well thats my story..any idea where my ethernet controller has gone?

info, it is a ePox 8NPA-SLI board, socket 754.. onboard lan

Please check in Device Manager for the networking controller. Also check for any devices with yellow !'s or red x's and let us know what you find.

To get to Device Manager, go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
