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.

Cannot connect to the internet. When I open the device manager, in the 'other device' drop down menu, Ethernet controller was missing. My laptop was Packard Bell easynot NJ65


Hi erolisgarrot,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system on your Packard Bell easynot NJ65 (whether Windows Vista or Windows 7).

Anyways, PLEASE CLICK HERE to find the Ethernet Controller driver.

Please select Notebook > Easynote > EN NJ65 > select the appropriate Operating System then look for Lan.


Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have questions. Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

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!
