Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Evo n620c - Ethernet Controller down - Device Manager refuses to see Lan folder.

Tom19511, thank you so much for the fix.  Problem:  I've done all of the above, downloaded driver at your link, pointed 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.

Uninstall/reinstall and do your updates for this device from Device Manager and let the update wizard find the solution for you.it will ask you if you have the disk,click yes and donot insert any disk,the wizard will reply with can not find and give you a option to chose where to search,select c drive and click ok.then wait,if the original install was done correctly the drivers will be in the somewhere and the wizard will find them,
Reboot after updaqtes to save new device settings properly.

if still no resolve then reinstall system,don't forget to save a back-up first and then format.

You should install the drivers from this link:

Install the chipset driver first, the you install LAN driver and the appropriate Wireless LAN driver. You would probably find which wireless card you have by looking under your computer, there should be a sticker.

My device manager always show missing drivers ethernet controller and base system device,i can not reach it


Hi!
To fix this, you have to download and install the Chipset and Ethernet Drivers, which can be downloaded from the following link from HP Official Support: -
Compaq nc8000 Drivers
Visit the above link. Click the Network Drivers link and download the drivers for ethernet (LAN) according to the LAN you have on your laptop. (you may try other Broadcom or Intel LAN Drivers)
Also, from Operating System enhancement section you can get the chipset drivers

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Lan adapter


Juda2008, please tell me how this came about? Where you installing windows? (Fresh install)? Did the NVIDIA LAN driver function before? Or did you just loose the ability to connect to the internet one day & tried to re-install the driver. Than windows reported there is no hardware for this controller? If this is the case, double check in you're bios, page 32. Make sure you're onboard LAN is set to, Enabled. If it is set to Enabled & you are unable to install the correct driver software for the LAN controller, than the onboard controller may be defective. If this board is still under warranty through PC Chips, suggest you call tech support for an RMA. If you're board is not longer under warranty than buy a PCI LAN network 10/100 card. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=402915&Sku=N100-1420%20P&SRCCODE=CNETFEED&CMP=OTC-CNETFEED
There is one other way to try to install the controller for you're board. Go to PC Chips web site & download the NIC driver software. Create a folder on you're desktop & name it. Click on this link, download the NVIDIA Ethernet Driver into you're folder. http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=392&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=7&LanID=2
The driver file name, Nividia_33nm.zip must be uncompressed. Do this within the folder on you're desktop. Now open device manager. Find the yellow ! point for the missing driver. Right click once on the ! point & slide up to & left click update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time & than click the next button. In the next window, click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), than click the next button.
In the next window, click on the green check mark next to; Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...).
This will remove the green check mark. Than click the Browse button. Go to you're desktop & open the folder you created.

Click on the folder NVIDIA so it is highlighted, than click OK.
Windows should install the NVIDIA Ethernet Driver software.
If you receive the same error message from windows than you're NIC controller is defective.
