    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.

I recently bought a used Asus a7n8x mobo so I can rebuild my dead XP Pro 462 A Socket system. I am upgrading the mobo to the "Delux = A7V8X-E" board and replacing my 2400 AthlonXP CPU with a used 3200...

Excellent motherboard. I've owned two of them, best socket A motherboard ever. Nvidia nforce chipset, soundstorm audio. You can definitely burn the drivers to a disk or pen drive for installation after you've reinstalled windows. Windows xp may even have drivers that will work for the network card. So you may just be able to go to asus's website with that system and install directly to the system. You will know if the network card is working when xp asks to activate, try to activate and it will tell you if you have a network connection or not. I would burn all the drivers and software to a disk though just in case. Downloading the drivers and saving them on a CD is easy. Just download and save the drivers/software to your "my documents folder" when downloading from asus. Then open my computer double click on the cdrw drive or dvdrw drive whichever one you have and drag the files from your documents to the cdrw//dvdrw window. Once you've done this you will see at the top of the window "files ready to be written to cd". At the top in the left column in window you will see "write files to cd". Insert a blank cd-r or cd-rw and click write files to cd. That's it once its finished you can use the cd to install the software. If you have any trouble or questions reply to this and I will be glad to help you. I miss my A7N8X-E I sold mine to my friend 5 years ago and its still running strong and I used it for 2 years before him.

Foxconn 761gxk8mbm/b cant find old or new sata h/drives on reinstall of xp

XP doesn't have the drivers for SATA - so it can't see them during the installation, and has nowhere to install to. You will need to make up a driver disk/CD/USB and use the "F6" installation option during the XP install to load new drivers.

Installation problem of Ethernet Driver

So, you have a "bootleg" version of Windows, and now you are needing "support" ??? Get legal, and then call Microsoft for support for updates downloaded from Windows Update web-site.

Can you access "DEVICE MANAGER", and then "ROLLBACK" the driver for the network adapter?

Realtek AC'97 Driver Problems

This is the last piece of solution I can give you, in case you already knew it, please ignore.

Your motherboard has a 6-channel non-HD audio, consequently you might have probably downloaded drivers meant for 2 or 4 channel or HD ones.

The appropriate driver for your motherboard is
Realtek ALC650
you can download it here:
Since it is just 6MB , I suggest you give it a try as a last option.
Hope it help !

Focus on getting your network card driver. Once you get that, you can download the others on your desktop. I can't tell you where to find it because I would need the make and model of your pc. If it's Dell for example, go to the website and go to support. Enter you make/model and find driver downloads. Then download the appropriate driver for you NIC.
