Question about Gateway MX6920 Notebook
The computer has an internal Marvell Yukon 88E8038 PCI ethernet adapter. All of a sudden after working for almost a year, the Device Manager does not recognize its existence. I have downloaded and re-installed the driver. No luck; non expected since the device is not there. I have tried all modes of "Add Hardware". I have tried "Application and Driver" recovery, but nothing of wired ethernet is even on the list as recoverable. I have tried system restore, but it reports nothing has changed. I would do a full system recovery, but I cannot face re-installing my applications.
I am not afraid to edit the registry if I knew where to look and what to look for.
I have had these network adaptors go defective. In your laptop, it is probably built in on the mother board. This would be very expensive to fix. I would suggest to get a USB or a PCMCIA (laptop socket) network adabtor. Install the new adabtor with the software that comes with it, and most likely the new one will work.
