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
