Hi,
please restart your system and at the blue dell logo keep tapping the F2 key, the bios setup screen will open, check in here if the lan card is enabled here or not. if not enable the lan card, once it is enabled from here windows will detect it and prompt you to install drivers.

Compaq Presario 2050NX onboard pnp nic (LAN) device not found - reinstalled onboard LAN device driver, still can't see it


For Windows XP CLICK HERE
In Windows 7 the driver installs automatically
I would suggest uninstalling all drivers for the network adapter then reboot and allow the system to find the NIC again. If this is Windows XP uninstall all drivers for the NIC, reboot, and install the above driver.
If it is Windows 7 uninstall the drive, reboot and allow device manager to locate the driver itself.

I installed the intel driver for the onboard sound and I still cant hear anything


Look in device manager. Under Sound, are there any yellow icons? No - next step, Yes - reinstall driver

Using XP

go to control panel

choose - sound and audio

click on the - audio tab

Is your sound card listed as the default sound playback?

Very rare, but check under services, Windows audio and check that it is running.

Video Card not recognized on PCV-RS410


Hi, have you check the status of the video card in the window device manager.
1. Right clicking My Computer icon on your desktop
2. Select Manage option from menu
3. Select Device Manager
Please verify if there is any yellow color exclamation appears on the left side of your new video card adaptor. If so you need to install a driver. I am assuming your pc is running window xp and video card adaptor is window xp compatible.
Hope this help.

LAN CARD ADAPTOR IS MISSING AFTER FORMATING TO XP PRO


Not sure I understand you what you mean. Let me recap:
1) Your LAN adaptor was working before you reloaded Windows XP Pro.
2) Now it’s not showing up in “Device Manager”.
If this is the case, there must be some software driver missing. Make sure there are no other devices that have an error. Double check Dell’s website at www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Thank You.

Ethernet driver


dear brian,

to get you an overview on which components you have, although not installed or recognized by win xp pro, download pcwizard2008, install and run the hardware detection program, it'll give you a lots of details about your computer, you can even save the data to a pdf-file.

networking components on your laptop may be:
- the 1394 adaptor
- the( to be found) ethernet card
- and if it is onboard or u plug it in via USB 2.0 port: the WLAN-adaptor

look for the (onboard?) realtek ethernet
card(rj-45 plug, similiar to dsl-cable)
using pcwizard, find out about the model and download suitable driver rom the net for winXP.
install and then try setting up a network/internet connection

(be wise enough to use the right cable:
for hooking up your lap to an internet dsl-router use dsl cable, to establish PC to laptop connecton you will need DSL cable plus crossover adaptor !)
i recommend to use cable connections, they're
older, more reliable and for safety reasons, better than wirelessLAN!

if you have used the 1394-network adaptor before, you are better than me, I dunno anything about it.

WLAN is an option when using laptop not at home- but don't clearly understand if the toshiba model u use already has WLAN-onboard device or u do use an external, USB 2.0 device to connect to the net...?
please give more detail about that- and do tell which toshiba laptop u use as this is helpful for me to find u a proper driver, if still needed.

C U here on fixya?!

My pc is not detecting my in built lan adapter


I have had this problem with my SysteMax Ascent as well. Not sure if you re-installed your OS or not, but the same will still apply. What is happening is that your OS (assuming Windows) is not recognizing the onboard LAN adaptor, even with it's native drivers, so the driver must be downloaded and installed. But first..

What you will need to do is open up your PC and look on your Motherboard for (what will likely be) a Letter-Number combination that will be large in size. Mine was M7NCD, yours may be different. If yours happens to be M7NCD, then your Motherboard is manufactured by BioStar, and here is their webpage with the download that you will need:
http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloads.asp?model=M7NCD%20PRO
It is located under Drivers, and be sure to check to the right of the download link to find which one will be compatible with your Operating System (OS).

If it is different, enter what you see into your favorite search engine, followed by 'drivers'. You should be able to find what you're looking for in the first few results. If not, just keep checking, and if needed, use different words in your search (like lan driver, chipset). A manufacture's website is usually the best result.

Once found, check for compatible OS and install. Your LAN adaptor should work now.

Also, for good measure, check in Device Manager (Start>Right-click properties>Hardware tab>Device Manager) for any exclamation points (black ! in a yellow circle) under Network Adaptors. If there are none, then it worked! If you do see any in a different category (Sound, video, game controllers for example), look on the webpage for any drivers for that category. After I re-installed drivers for the LAN adaptor, I also had to re-install drivers for the onboard sound card as well.

Anyway, hope this helps you! It should, I had the exact same problem :D

I disabled the lan and when i enabled it again it won't work


Hi, well now you have windows registry confused. The PCI card may have come with software & you installed it. (See if its listed in add/remove programs & uninstall it), than go to this link & download the free software to clean your registry. (Keep the onboard lan disabled in the bios).
http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
When the program finishes close the program & shut down the system. Than boot the system & enter the bios. Enable the onboard lan. Save & exit. With any luck windows will see your lan & ask for the software. You can use the CD to guide windows to the lad driver software or you can download it from ECS. The online lan may be a bit newer or may not be. Click here to go to ECS web site:
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=474&DetailName=New&DetailDesc=915G-M%20%20(V1.0)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=82&LanID=0
If you are running XP install through windows device manager.
Run into trouble, just let me know what the trouble is & we'll go from there.
Good luck!

Installing new Window xp and other devices didnt works


take the side of the computer off and look for the model number on your motherboard. you need to know if your using a network card or if its onboard Lan. if everything you need is onboard all you need to do is search your motherboard number on the internet and download the drivers. you need can select what you need, sound, lan etc. your goning to have to use a friends pc so you can download these files. when your Lan is installed go to the microsoft webpage and get the latest updates, that will solve the usb in your device manager
