This unfortunately sounds like a hardware problem on the motherboard itself. This may be especially true if the sound, ethernet, etc. no longer even show up in the windows device manager. You might try rebooting the computer, entering the setup BIOS page, selecting the "setup defaults", typically F7, or F9, or other, there should be a "menu", save and exit. If that clears up the problem, great. If not, you might try a PCI ethernet card, sound card, and USB, to have those things back. Otherwise I am afraid you may be up for a replacement motherboard or another computer. If replacing the motherboard, try to find an exact replacement so windows doesn't have to be re-installed.
I also highly recommend backing up any files you want to keep before taking any of the steps previously mentioned.
Good luck!

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Lan terminal not working


first check for all the drivers in the device manager.... if every thing is perfect in driver side, then check if the ethernet/ lan is enabled....
then check is the light in the ethernet adapter is lit, when you plug any ethenet cable in it... still if it is not working, then finally try to update the latest driver for the ethernet controller.... if nothing works, then buy an pci ethernet card and use it..... you can also buy external cards like usb to ethernet converter... even belkin manufactures usb to ethernet controller....

NetGear Wireless Router and connecting using a USB Modem


I think you're saying that you want to set up a Netgear from a wirless port. Is that the ONLY computer you have?

It's not IMPOSSIBLE, but it is improbable. By default, the Netgear has the address 192.168.1.1. If nothing else on your network has that address, it might be possible to plug in the Netgear, set the IP address of your computer to 192.168.1.2-254, and link to 192.168.1.1.

I didn't say easy, just possible. Easy would be to use a computer with a wired ethernet port or grab a friend with a laptop with a wired port. It's a 15-minute job.

Not exactly sure, but it seems that you should uninstall and reinstall you sound drivers. They may have become corrupt or it may point to hardware failure.
