Question about Computers & Internet
Welcome to FixYa!
Do windows update. It should automatically update your Realtek driver smoothly.
Restart your computer in Clean Boot. This will temporarily disable all the 3rd party softwares that are being loaded during the startup of your computer which sometimes conflicts the installation process of some drivers and softwares.
Make sure to download the updated driver from the manufacturer's website.
(In your case http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/)
Disable your anti-virus temporarily.
For Windows XP:
Click start, run, type msconfig then click ok.
For Windows Vista / 7:
Click start type msconfig in the search box then click on result of the search that says msconfig.
The Windows Configuration Utility window will open.
See image below:
After the computer has restarted, install your updated Realtek driver.
Note: If the updated driver won't install properly, provide me with the error message and I will get back to you.
After successfully installing the updated driver, do Step 2 to open back the Windows Configuration Utility window.
Do Step 3 but this time check back all that we unchecked. Hopefully you wrote it down.
Click on Apply.
Click on Ok.
It will prompt you to restart. Click Yes/Ok to restart now.
It enable that we disabled and will put your computer into its original state.
Enable your anti-virus software.
I hope this helps.
Thank You for using FixYa.
Keep me posted.
