I had a main hard drive crash. So, I bought a new hard drive and re-installed Windows XP Pro and also the GA-M59SLI-S5 motherboard drivers. The motherboard drivers are supposedly the latest drivers, which were downloaded from through the Gygabyte website. My DSL internet connection has now slowed down significantly. I tested the connection by plugging the cable into my laptop computer, and found that the speed is OK on the laptop. Therefore, the problem resides with my desktop computer. Is this a hardware or software driver issue?
The Device Manager shows the following under Network Adapters: 1394 Net Adapter, NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet, NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet #2; and the following under NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator: NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator, NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator.
The Driver File Details for NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet are: C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\NVENETFD.sys (file version 1.00.02.06789) C:\WINDOWS\system32\fdco1.dll (file version 1.1) C:\WINDOWS\system32\fdco1ins.dll (file version 1.1)
The Driver File Details for NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator are:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\bdco1.dll (file version 1.0)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\bdco1ins.dll (file version 1.0)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\nvnetbus.sys (file version 1.00.01.06789) C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\nvnrm.sys (file version 1.00.02.06789) C:\WINDOWS\system32\nvconrm.dll (file version 1,3,3,27)
Are these correct for my system? Or is there some other problem?

Re: Ethernet Drivers (slow internet access)?
The fastest speed is the slowest path on the network.
right click on the my network place.
right click on the NIC local connection
click on configuration at the right of the connect using (NIC)
second tab, "advanced" check the speed & duplex- it should be auto, but you can change it. do not recommend it.
check resources- make sure it has no conflect with any other device.
if that doesn't help. uninstall the NIC driver and try to find a older driver. Sometime that works better, don't ask me, but it works.

You can download the drivers from ASUS WEB site. Selectyour model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select the Windows XPor Vista version of the drivers that matches your Windows operating system.Please click on this link to their WEB support site : -
Check the motherboard specification for the largest capacity hard drive the BIOS can support.
A BIOS upgrade may allow you to install a larger hard drive.
You can use a large capacity external USB hard drive or install a second hard drive in your computer.
Couple solutions for you: 1.) Burn drivers to a CD 2.) Put ethernet drivers on a floppy, install a floppy drive. 3.) Remove hard drive, attach to a different PC, copy drivers to the root folder of the drive, then put back, start up, install drivers. As far as USB ports go- check the BIOS, make sure they are not turned off. If they are not, sorry, you have a malfunctioning mobo, or a bad install of windows.
I had this problem on a computer recently. This particular motherboard may be needing the driver on the Windows XP SP2 disk. Your motherboard may have been made to use Microsoft SATA drivers. Othewise, there would have been a driver disk that came with the motherboard to let it see that SATA hard drive. If it's a new hard drive, you have to reinstall the O/S so use a disk new enough to have SP2 included.
Hi gordonal123, installing drivers through safe mode is not recommended. If you want windows to function correctly than do a fresh install of windows. Over writing the Gateway hdd will cause you more grief. Windows registry will go nuts. Link to download the Asus K8V drivers. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us Here is what you need to do. Boot to your windows CD while using the Gateway system & hdd. Create a new partition within the free space of the Gateway hdd. (Follow windows onscreen instructions to create a new partition within the free space of hdd). (This will maintain the current windows function). Restart windows when finished. Windows will create a second partition on the Gateway drive. Go to the Asus link above & download all the drivers for the K8V MB, onto the second partition of the Gateway hdd. Once downloaded & uncompressed into their own folders you can than boot to the windows CD & format the primary partition & install windows fresh onto the formatted partition. When finished you can install the K8V driver still located on the secondary partition. Copy & past these driver folders to your primary partition. Than use windows disk management software to erase / delete the secondary partition. (diskmgmt.msc). When finished you'll have all the drivers for the K8V MB, no need to buy a PCI LAN card & more importantly a fully functioning windows with-out issues.
If you are sure it is a motherboard problem relating to the on board ethernet connection, purchase a PCI slot ethernet card and see if using the card manufacturers drivers are better than the motherboard ethernet drivers.
Although i'm not sure how a slow connection is the motherboard problem, it maybe that it's SP2 thats the problem.
Have you checked the driver that is used for the onboard ethernet connection, it maybe you need to re-install original motherboard ethernet driver you got with it.
