Ethernet Controler Problem
January 21, 2007 2:10am CST
As I was using the computer, it suddenly froze (happening a lot lately), I couldn?t do anything but pressed the restart button as usual. After restarting, I was prompted that a new hardware was found. Surprisingly, it was my Ethernet Controller. I followed whatever it said to try update the driver, though it should have had already, for I have been using the computer on ADSL for over a year now. But the update didn?t workout. And when I check the property of my Ethernet Controller in Device Manager, it said this ? ?The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)? So I went google, (btw, I?m now using a dial up connection which doesn?t require the use of Ethernet?wishing my ADSL back of coz?), and found this article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123 . after doing what it said, I rebooted, hoping for a working Ethernet.. But, things didn?t turn out smooth, now I get the error message ? ?This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)?, which now means I have to install the driver for it. The problem is, I don?t know where I can find the driver for my Ethernet, though I think it came with my motherboard ? Gigabyte 8I875. And after downloading the LAN driver from this page http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=1715 and running the file - MSIEXEC.EXE, and rebooting. STILL isn?t fixed.. Now I?m getting very worried, please, can someone give some idea of how to fix this.
