I have lost my network connection Icon. As I heard I have NIC pro
Shahin n 108,
You said "I dont have the NIC".
I said "physically or virtually".
Where I was going with my request for clarification, is your NIC on a PCI card plugged into a PCI slot, or is it part of the motherboard? Do you plug the CAT 5 wire near the USB and other ports or do you plug it in in the vicinity of the expansion cards? I guess it doesn't make that much difference ... please read on.
Both are 'hardware', one you can see on the motherboard (sort of 'virtual') the other you can remove and hold independently in your hand, replace and so forth.
The one on the motherboard should auto reinstall when you reloaded the operating system. The other one probably came with drivers on a CD but is probably supported by either your manufacturer or Windows.
I agree with Endeir, remove the device from within the device manager and reboot. Windows should detect and reinstall the proper drivers. If it doesnt, go to the manufacturer web site, search your model e-Machine and download the latest driver they offer for your operating system.
I hope this gets you going again ...
Please get yourself some anti virus software so this doesn't happen again soon ... Microsoft has a new and free program. Search 'Windows Live One Care' (now out of production) to find the name of the new, free to use product. Also, there are other programs available. Point being, get one.
Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com ...
And as Endeir mentioned, please remember to rate the answers ...
