Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

No network adapter found

My internet was working fine up until a few days ago. My old video card died so I bought a new one. When I put in an old video card to test my computer, everything was working fine including the internet. Yesterday, I received my new video card and put it in and everything works fine, except now I have no internet on it and I keep getting a message from windows saying that there is no network hardware connected.

My first question is, is it possible to damage the motherboard when I put my new video card in since its a lot bigger compared to my other one (the 9800 compared to the 8800) and it only effect the internet part?

If not, how can i fix this?

Hello, this seems like a hardare conflict between the new video card and the ethernet port. try checking in the device manager for conflicts like yellow esclamation marks.

you can get there by going to start /control panel /system icon / devices / device manager

    I'm sorry i forgot to comment on your first question. The motherboard should be ok with the new card. The size won;t matter,

    But tell me, does the physical video card have any contact with the network adapter?

    ok. It seems like a software conflict. Might i suggest trying to slot the network card into a different PCI slot?

  • Hardware
  • Device Manager
  • Display Adapter , Uninstall your old driver

  • Re-install video drivers for new card

Did you try installing the usb network card to another usb port?? for exm, the front, another usb port? If so, and you still get the same result then it's a operating system issue. I had the same promblem with my Hp using windows vista with a external wifi card. I'm 90 percent sure it's a driver issue, when you installed, was there any option to which o/s and bits you are installing this device too, if so, try correcting the right o/s and bit (32 or 64). If after correcting it and you still get this, the rest of it is a driver issue, either it's incompatible, or driver needs updating. Other then this, I'm not sure too.

The on board ethernet adapters were damaged so i purchased an ethernet card Realtek 10/100/1000 however it gives me internet for all of 30 seconds until i try to access a website then it dies and loses...

There shouldn't be any issues if the network connection worked with the integrated NIC. Maybe you just managed to purchase a defective replacement card. The other possibility is that you didn't disable the onboard network hardware in the computer BIOS settings. There may be some conflicts since the motherboard is trying to address both of them. Make sure the onboard NIC is disabled, and try another PCI card if you still have problems.

I bought Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS Motherboard for my HP pc replacement. i install my AGP VsionTek x1300 graphic card and turn it on and nothing show up on screen...then i put the graphic card back to my old HP...

Your new Foxconn motherboard Primary Graphics Adapter settings in set to onboard vga that is why there is no display in your monitor. Do not install yet your agp video card. Use first the onboard vga of the motherboard.
Power up your computer and go to the BIOS settings. Locate in bios about the Primary Graphics Adapter settings and then select AGP. Save changes and the exit. Turn off your computer and now install the agp video card.

After restart motherboard beep 3 times

With the award bios 3 beeps usally indicates the video adapter (1long beep 2 short beeps) So one question for clarifcation.
Did you replace an older vid card that was having this problem with the 9400 or was the 9400 card the only card in this system?
If the 9400 was the only card ever in the system I would say RMA the card. It is very possible for a new card to be defective. If you where having the same issues with an differnt card as well You Should goto and update your bios to the latest version.
If you still have a problem after updating the bios then I would RMA the motherboard.

Hope this helps and let me know how this turns out.

Merry christmas:

Video card

in my opinion it would be best to upgrade to pci-e motherboard as the pci-e cards are actually cheaper than the agp cards these days, agp is dead by the way, most company's aren't making cards for it anymore.

imnsho you are wasting your money on a agp card.

about your att card, its most likely a driver issue. see if updated drivers are available.

Network Card

Yes the network card is the same ethernet card. If your intel pro/100 is onboard try to re install the driver from the motherboard drvier. Check also in the manager device it the network device have a complex to the other device. Follow this, Click START then RUN type DEVMMGMT.MSC then enter check if the network adapter have a yellow question mark. If you found the network adapter right click and uninstall it.and click the ACTION and click SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. After the installation finished try to connect to the internet. If still the same even you input the correct ip in the network configuration. Buy a new LAN card it's not expensive, because usually the onboard lan is easy to damage or not working properly you can installed and configured it but you cannot connect to the internet.
