    First I installed Vista and uninstalled my genuine XP home version. Lateron I uninstalled the vista again and installed XP professonal. All drivers are installed properly except Ethernet controller, I have checked in device manager and found out that there is a yellow question mark beside the ethernet controller. If I try to connect DSL with the cable, it is telling that the driver is not installed. I have checked the drive in acer.com but I didnt get an appropriate driver for my ethernet controller.

    Which driver should I install and how can I get it?

  • Moonmoon1 Dec 01, 2007

    I have downloaded the file but I cannot install from the .sys file.

    How to work and how to install the data?

    If I click on the folder, and click on the file to download, it is telling that the program cannot be opened in MS DOSE mode.



    I am not sure how to install it. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp!!!

    :-((

    I downloaded the driver from the link but I cannot run the driver.

    How to install a .sys file? If I click on the file, it is showing me that I have to choose a program to open the file and if i ask to search from the internet, it is telling that the file type is unknown.



    How to run the driver?

    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp :-((

  • Moonmoon1 Dec 01, 2007

    Yahoooooooooooo!

    It works. I put the the driver in a folder and named as LAN. And from device manager, I just clicked on the ethernet controller and told to seach manually the location from it can install.



    And it is working perfectly. That is the reason for which you like people called as EXPERT!



    Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks man!

    oh,ok

    Save the file in a folder. name it Lan, or somthing like that. Remember where it is. Go to device manager and right click on the yellow ethernrt controller. uninstall it. reboot and let windows try to install it. if it cant it will ask you for a file. Show it where you put the LAN folder.



    Let me know how this works for you.

Device Manager refuses to see Lan folder.
tom19511, thank you so much for the fix.  Problem:  I've done all of the above, point to the Lan folder, but Device Manager doesn't see it.  Says to uninstall or go to Internet for driver.  Would love to, but, duh, can't connect to Internet.  Any idea what to do?  What a pain!  Thanks in advance for your help.
