I recently got an NVME SSD (960 EVO M.2), unplugged my pc and inserted into pci-e 4. I then booted up the computer and the SSD was not visible. (Not the main issue as I understand these can be difficult to install). The problem was that my internet connection no longer works and when diagnosing the problem found was "ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.


I then removed the new SSD and tried again... same problem. 


I have tried many things to try and fix the issue including:

- Trying a different cable, internet socket, reseting router, trying different socket in router.

- Reinstalling TCP/IP setting via command prompt (admin)

- Disable NIC and enable

- Uninstalled ethernet drivers and reinstalled

- Installed most recent drivers


Can someone please help me! This is a work computer and i think my boss my kill me. I just can't get the thing to work. My computer specs are below:


- Windows 10 Home

- AMD FX™-8320 Eight-Core processor


- NVIDIA GeForce GT 720

- Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

- Motherboard - ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 - Ethernet plugs direct into motherboard
