    What is the exact error message you are receiving? Is it: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)."

    Also, what Operating System are you using? XP, Vista, ME, etc...

It looks like a corrupt driver.

Doing a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation of software.

First, download the latest version of the driver for your OS from the manufacturer's website.

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, install the downloaded driver. Next, do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Ethernet dont work code28


Go out to Staples and buy an ethernet card. You can use this permanently or just to access the web to the drivers for the integrated port. That's what I had to do.

Network card disappeared overnite


Before adding any ethernet card, try to restore your system by using system restore option available with windows to a date on which your system was perfectly working. If the your system works fine after that, then it is quite likely to have your system infected by malicious software or anti virus. Scan your system for virus. If the ethernet is not working then add a new card after disabling the on-board network card in the CMOS setup.

Internet not conect


Hello,

If you are unable to connect to internet. There are few things you can try:

1) Reinstall the Ethernet drivers. Go to control panel> add/remove programs> uninstall the Intel or Realtek Ethernet drivers.Then reinstall the drivers from the motherboard disc provided with this pc. Make sure you install only the ethernet drivers.

2) If your pc is giving any kind of error message like limited connectivity then its a problem with your ISP(Internet service provider) or the windows operating system itself. Call your ISP and let them check the issue if they can't help go for a repair install of windows using the disc.

Hope that helps!

My dell xps 410 will not go online thru either of the ethernet ports on the computer. im using my phone with usb tether and it goes online fine. it says it need the ethernet controller driver but...


Hello, look at this link, you should have installed the bottom driver, but take care! if you've got a LAN card as well, you might have got the MOBO one disabled in bios, so best to take out the LAN card, find out what it is and look for a driver for it, meanwhile, with it removed, install the LAN driver for the MOBO LAN port, (bottom driver on this link ) and see if it appears in your 'Network Connections' (Check in bios to see if it's been disabled, though)

I cannot install my lan driver. when i try to install it,i get an error message saying that ''cannot find a proper nic , click ok to exit the program.''


If you go into the control panel under "Device manager" there will be a list option called "Modems and other devices" Open the list and check to see if your ethernet card is on the list. If it is right click it and choose "Uninstall" and then "Yes". Power down the computer and then reboot. Your computer will automatically reinstall the drivers for your ethernet card.If not, you might try going back as far as you can in "System restore" to when the LAN was fully operative. Thanks, Dana

Cannot fix code 28 for network controller for dell1525 laptop


If you are getting a code 28 then you will need to download a new driver on another computer for the network card. If you have a wireless adapter that you can connect to the computer and your router has wireless capability then that could work as well but you will need to get a new driver on to that computer some how.

Finding the driver will be easy though. You can go to the computer's manufacturer website, or the website of the network card's manufacturer and search for it there. Shouldn't be too hard to find but if you can't find it let me know and I will get you a link.

You should at least classify your problem by the RealTek chip you have. That's great you went into the Device Manager to check out the error number, but if you doubleclicked the yellow warning signs, it would explain you just haven't loaded a driver.

Either you told Windows not to accept the non-WHQL-signed driver, or you didn't install the driver. So install it from Device Manager by going into the details tabs and asking Windows to just find what's handy, or go to the maker's website and search for the appropriate driver. Install it.... Save your work since rebooting will be needed. Then adjust the mixer, set up microphones, listen to Mum (the band) etc.
