    On the tab standing Ethernet controler

    Producent unknown

    Driver to this unit are not installed (kode 28)

    Click on Reinstall driver

    After what I has found out is it a realtek netcard but It would not accept any realtek drivers i try.

    IT shut have been simple, but I moved last year and the manual and drivercd was lost in that aktion.

  • timber_zhang Jul 14, 2008

    no I cant se anymore dettails (XP dont tell more than unknow)

    Its not because there are a conflict ore something like that

    And when I look at the bord there not standing any indication

    and hwen I search the net they all says "giga net" and realtek network. BUT it would not accept any realtek drivers

  • timber_zhang Jul 14, 2008

    Thats the trouble, because I cant find Vendor ID ore Product ID

  • timber_zhang Jul 14, 2008

    I think the only solution are someone there has a Motherboard like my SP 865PRO-775 and get them to check there vendor.

    ore someone there has the actuel driver.

    Its first time in my 14year with comouters I got a trouble like this, Normaly are I able to see SOME information in proberty ore on the board, but not here

  • timber_zhang Jul 17, 2008


    I startet up with a Knopix Live cd (a linux variant) and it just autoconfig it all.

    then I was able to see all the hardware ids

    It was a "VIA VT6020/6162 giganet card"

    So if others got a problem where they CANT find the driverID: Use the Knopix live CD (freeware) and in a "console windows type ispci -v and it gives you all the hardwareconfig with version ect.

    here you get a image of knopix

    and here are the desciption there lead me to the solution:

    But I thanks for the help and good intention fro people, it made me fight a bit more with it

    If you can get the Vendor ID and Product ID from Device Manager I can find the actual model of the card and get the drive for you.

    Using my last post can you actually get that information? When you see the "Unknown" product in device manager can you right click and go to "Properties"? Then go to the "DETAILS" Tab, change the drop down item to Device Instance ID or use the default selection and tell me what the text string is on the body window below.

    Can you go into Device Manager and get me the vendor and device id?

    Go into Device Manager

    1. Right-click on My Computer

    2. Select Properties

    3. Select Hardware Tab

    4. Click on Device Manager Button

    5. Locate the node that has a yellow question mark

    6. Expand the Unknown Device node to find your network card

    7. Right click on the device

    8. Select Properties

    9. Click on the Details Tab

    10. On the drop down menu select the Device Instance ID

    11. Some text will display below. Please provide a copy of all that text.

I have the Soltek SL-865Pro-775 motherboard, but more importantly, I have the driver CD that came with it when I built my computer. If you need any of the drivers, let me know.

The only other things I can recommend is an online system driver scan that will detect the ID's on the unknown network controller and tell you which driver to download. The only problem with this is that you would need to install another NIC to do this unless you arleady have one.

Here is a good one that I've used in the past:

It costs $29.95 and you can install the agent on up to 10 computers.

The better alternative is to just purcahe another network card. I would go with an Intel Gigabit NIC. You can check out your options on CDW's website. Intel GB NIC's run anywhere from $35-50.

Sorry I couldn't help you locate the integrated network controller driver. I couldn't really find information on the Soltek board.

Perhaps one of the other options above will work for you.

    Nice job. I'm glad you were able to find a resolution. I didn't realize your competency level was that high. The Knoppix distribution was a good tool. Way to think outside of the box.

My motherboard for my laptap MX6025 was damage, now I am replacing them for a new one and would order via online. How do I install this to my windows xp, what requirements do i need such as drivers,...

If your hard drive is still working fine, you shouldn't need to reinstall Windows again. Most of the time your PC will perform as it did before your motherboard died by simply reinstalling the original hard drive.
If not then do this.
Reinstall windows with your restore CD, and with most gateway laptops you should have a drivers and applications CD that restores your motherboard drivers and applications to their original locations.

If you lost your drivers CD, you can download them all here.

When asked, you should allow XP updates so that Service Pack 3 can install. This will add a few windows based drivers to your laptop that may be necessary for better video, audio and wireless performance.

Your restore CD may not ask for your CD Key, this is typical for a Vendors original restoration, but if for some reason it does, the number on the back of your laptop will work. Mine validated just fine.

I reinstalled XP Pro and I cannot connect to the intern et. It appears I am missing drivers for the Ethernet Controller. What is the simplest solution? Where can I get the driver?

when you update a driver, you also need a cd installer. If you lost the cd installer of the product, you really have to do the worst thing.: search and search for the drivers over the internet until you find it. Goodluck men..!

I just reinstalled xp and cant get on the internet I believe i need drivers and cant find them anywhere

Goto emachines website on another computer, and look up drivers for your computer, I just did and they have what you need there.

Save the drivers to a cd or jump drive and install to your computer and you will be fine.

Windows logo testing and the warning are just Microsoft covering themselves as they haven't testd th drivers. While it is remotely possible it is highly unlikely that any problems would occur as it is not in the interests of the manufacturer to produce a driver for thir product that would damage your system.

As regards XP you would have to buy a new one.

I have just reinstalled my friends IBM Thinkpad R50e with XP and I can't get internet working, wired or wireless

This the common catch 22 that happens when you install XP and it does not have the network drivers for the laptop you are working with on the disc. The fix is to go on the internet and download the drivers for your device, but wait... you can't get on the internet!

You will need a 2nd computer and a thumb drive/blank CD to resolve this. On the 2nd computer go to IBM's site to download your drivers here:

Download the network drivers to your thumb drive/CDR then install them on the R50e. In the future you should always keep a thumb drive or a burnt cd of your network drivers handy BEFORE an OS reinstall. Once you have the network drivers installed you can fix pretty much anything else that needs drivers. Also, be sure to run windows update and get all the patches for XP. It will take a long time, but it is VERY important.

The bootable XP cd you have will work - You need to first reinstall the Operating System(XP), then download and install drivers for the devices(Such as touchpad, wireless, etc.)
The device drivers are all available from Acer's support site; If the Network Card driver isn't installed after the windows XP installation, you will need to use a different computer to download the drivers, and transfer them to your laptop using some sort of removable media - USB Flash drive, portable hard drive, memory card, etc.
