Question about Foxconn 845GV4MR-ES Motherboard
A friend had a machine "repaired" by one of the local companies. In this case, repair seems to mean sell them a new mobo, cpu, ram, hdd - but not to install Windows.
While trying to install XP Home (this is the software they have a license for), I notice that the bios recognises the lan as a series of Docking Stations - Windows also adds new Hardware of this type.
I've tried installing PCI ethernet cards, but they also get recognised by the BIOS as docking stations - and if I try and use the appropriate ethernet driver on the "docking station", I get a blue screen.
Does anyone have any clues as to what's going on here, and how I can get the Network Adapter installed?
Have you installed the correct drivers for this mobo? You can get them here:
I've used these with XP Pro and everything works. You have to install the chipset driver before the others. Also, do you have the onboard network adapter enabled in the BIOS?
