The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it’s file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

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.

AHave a problem in device manager with an ethernet driver. Cannot find one that will work.


This is the WIndows 2000 NIC driver http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=33486&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us〈=en&os=181&product=93925 If you are using Windows XP it MAY work but from what I see, the NIC driver should be native to XP. But you can give it a try. Since the Network Card is an Expansion Card, it is also possible it has been replaced already with a different model. If this driver doesn't work, you might consider replacing the NIC as they are generally under $20

I can't see my nic card to access the internet I loaded windows XP professional


The only option is to download the driver from another system on a USB drive or CD etc, then load the NIC driver on the system.

Since you didn't list the brand and model, we can't give you suggested downloads.

Error code 10 intel r 82566 nic


The Intel Nic driver did not install correctly. Click on the link below to download the Nic driver. Create a new folder on you're desktop & give it a name. Save the Nic driver into that folder.
Number 4. Under Drivers. LAN: Intel® PRO Network Connections Driver. File name: LAN_allOS_13.0.1_PV_Intel_165622.exe. Run the .exe from within the folder.
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2377&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
Re-install the driver. If windows still fails to install correctly than install through device manager. Click on the start button, slide up to & open control panel. Open the System icon. Click the hardware tab, than click on the device manager button. Find the yellow ! point for the nic driver. Right click once on the ! point, than slide up to & left click update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away. Click the Browse button. Another window will open. (Browse for the folder you created on you're desktop).
Open that folder. Left click once on the new yellow folder named LAN_allOS_13.0.1_PV_Intel_165622 so it is high lighted, than click ok. Windows should correctly install the Nic driver. Restart you're system when finished. That's it!

Good luck!
Mike

Clean XP Pro installed -- now NIC disappeared!


Well once you did a clean install over all of Dell drivers etc etc. You wiped out the restore artion that was on the computer. You have to go to Dells website and under the support tab look for the Nic card that you have inside the computer.

Im lookin for my LAN driver


In Windows XP, check in Device Manager (DM) to see if the NIC driver is installed. You can get to DM by right-clicking on My Computer, selecting Manage and then clicking on the DM line. If there is a driver problem, the NIC will show up with a yellow mark next to it. If it is just identified as a "PCI device" or something similar then you need to install the chipset driver from NVidia - you can get that from their website. Otherwise check if there is a separate NIC driver for your chipset; if there is, download it from the NVidia site & install it. If this isn't helpful, please come back & tell us more precisely what PC/motherboard/chipset you have!
