NVIDIA NForce Networking Controller constantly drops

Q: NVIDIA NForce Networking Controller constantly drops

Recently , the NVIDIA NForce Networking Controller is constantly dropping connection and when it does , I lose connection to the Internet and I am booted out of my applications. It only happens for a few seconds.

I am running Windows XP Home and SP3

I am running a cable modem to a Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router.

What could be the cause of this and how can it be corrected?

thanks

Preferred Solution: NVIDIA NForce Networking Controller constantly drops

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This is happeneing to the wired PC and not a laptop connected via Wireless. When it happens I see a small network Cable unplugged popup on the toolbar.

Okay, in my Windows Update, this 'optional' update is forever on there, waiting for me to install it. Well, when I do try to install it, it just ends up failing with error code 80070103 (Unknown error). Is this update necessary for regular use or do I need it, despite it being labeled optional. Oh, and why does it fail continually?

Hi Kazuto
I usually go with the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' theory when downloading optional updates. If all is working well, I usually find that optional updates are more trouble than help..

Upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. After installation Nvidia nforce Networking Controller stopped working. It is recognized under Device Manager but gives ' device cannot start. (Code 10)'

It's a Compaq Presario f755us with Nvidia chipset Nforce 560 and Southbridge Nforce 560. I've tried several different drivers as well as the drivers for Nforce 560 on Nvidia's website(NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.23 WHQL) however all have been ineffective. Installed the windows vista 32 bit versions of all drivers (also tried two xp drivers).

I searched for other threads on the topic but I couldn't find a solution within them. I'd appreciate your assistance. Thank You

Hi guys.

I don't know if this is the best area in the forum to post this but here it goes: I recently installed some nvidia drivers and now nvidia has created a network connection with the name "nvidia nforce networking controller" and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried uninstalling the nvidia drivers, deactivating the connection and even deleting it but everytime I try something the computer automatically reboots. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this nvidia connection?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings, I am having difficulty with my drivers, and come to you for help.

My OS is Windows Vista, service packs are installed, but most recent updates are not installed, for reasons which I'll explain.

First of all, when I boot my computer. I get the following window.



If I don't touch it, my old version, 65.6.5.0, NVIDIA nForce networking controller remains intact, and my internet functional.

If I try to install from that window, the installation fails, my old networking controller is gone, and I cannot access the web.

After that failed installation, 2 more drivers try to install and fail, one of them was "ISATAP", then drivers for unknown devices try to install and fail.

I used system restore to get back to the point where I am now, with the window shown in picture hidden off in corner, and internet functional. Thus, the updates from the last 3 days or so are not yet installed.

I suspect that newest driver from windows update may have caused corruption somewhere, but I've no idea how to fix this.

My questions are:

What is causing these driver installations to fail?

What are these unknown devices, and why does my computer not recognize them?

Why does my old networking controller appear to be completely deleted when I try to install the new?

What additional information do I need to provide for assistance?

I'm grateful for any assistance with this headache.

Hello all,

I have a rather strange situation here. About a year ago, my laptop ran on Vista, and could connect to both wireless, and ethernet just fine. I recently installed Windows 7, and have only used wireless. Today, I discovered that ethernet doesn't work for me anymore. I don't think it's a problem with the modem, because I used the same modem for ethernet (my home modem). When I installed windows 7, I was back at my apartment where I always used wireless.

So I went to Device manager to look under Network Adapters, and there are three exclamation marks: NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller, Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface, and Coprocessor (which was under Network Adapter, and then under "Other devices"). I've tried scanning for hardware changes. I've tried updating drivers, and none are found.I've tried uninstalling the NVIDIA nforce Networking Controller, and letting Windows reinstall it, but that didn't work. Windows couldn't uninstall it properly. I found another thread on this forum saying to cut the driver from the Drivers folder in System 32, and then rebooting to let Windows try and reinstall it, but that didn't work either. Does anyone else have suggestions? I mean, I can live without ethernet, but I'd rather my computer work in case I ever need to use it.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi all,

I think this is a fairly common problem, but none of the steps in other threads I've found have seemed to help. I'll warn you now, I'm not particularly savy when it comes to the hardware side of things.

Basically, I did a system restore on a family member's laptop, and let Windows update the system pack once it finished. Once it had restarted after that, however, I couldn't connect to the internet, with Internet Explorer giving me the 'NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller Hardware Error' warning when diagnosing the problem.

I've tried updating the driver from the Nvidia website, and the Device Manager tells me that it is up to date and working properly, but that didn't seem to do anything.

The motherboard is a AMD Sempron SI-42, with a Nvidia Geforce 8200M G graphics card. I'm trying to connected to a wired network running up to a router. Other computers using this router are unaffected.

Does anyone know what I could do to try and fix this? Like I said, I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to sorting out internet connections and things, especially with laptops.

Thanks

Hello

I had a HP pavilion 6000 notebook pc with win 7 64 bit. A few days ago this problem appeared. The resolution of the display was match lower then usual and all of my network connections was dead (Wired and Wireless). In the device manager I see a yellow sign on the NVIDIA nforce networking controller and on the NVIDIA Geforce Display Adapters. I tried to re install the correct drivers (actually I tried something like 10 different drivers). I think this a strange coincidence that this both devices spoiled together when this both devices are integrated parts of the chip-set.

So I thought - may be it a hardware problem... but before I get an external networking controller I tried to run a Linux operation system on the machine. And guess what I found?... the system was worked as well as it spouse to.

The networking controller is NVIDIA nforce 610m and the Display Adapters is NVIDIA Geforce 7000M.

Can it be a operation system problem?
And if so how it can be fixed?

Thanks a lot.....

Problem:
A few months ago my parents got a virus that pretty much tore up their HDD. I successfully cleared it off and repartitioned it, installing a copy of Windows XP Pro that my school provided me with. Now, however, I'm finding that many drivers were not successfully installed. I've been able to find all but one (which has made installing the others difficult) - the driver for the network controller, specified as an NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller in my device manager.

I've been able to get a driver installed, but am now receiving the error "This decide cannot start (Code 10)" and am completely clueless as to why it would no longer work. Is this a residual effect the virus had on the computer (could it really do that to the hardware...?). The other possibilities I have been trying to work with are that maybe there is a registry problem, or maybe I'm not using the correct driver (although I did a lot of research in order to even find it - the controller is built into the motherboard, so I don't have much of a choice right now in making this work).

Is there anybody who can either let me know what is wrong, or give me some sort of heads-up as to how to determine what's wrong and what steps to take from here? I'd love to be able to connect to the internet on this computer as I plan to use it for school, starting in three weeks,... Read more

Hi everyone,

I just installed Vista on my computer, and was installing all my programs when I had to reboot. I did so, but then realised I'd lost my internet (it had been working up until then). A 'Diagnose and Repair' found that "The network adapter 'Nvidia nForce Networking Controller' is experiencing driver or hardware related issues."

As I said, the internet had been working up until then. I haven't installed any Windows updates (it's set to alert me of new ones).

I have had this problem before: I installed Vista, internet worked, rebooted after installing various programs, internet didn't work. Left it overnight & tried again next day, internet worked. Sometime later after reboot, internet didn't work. I then tried to install the Nvidia chipset driver again, but it froze part way through the install. This is when I wiped the entire hard drive and started again, but the problem is back.

Any and all help would be much appreciated!

hi BWPanda,

not sure if this will fix you problem but have the exact same NIC card built into the mother board and had the same problem when I updated its driver with the NVidia driver.

To fix the problem what i done was Uninstalled the card then rescanned for hardware to let windows pick up the driver automaticly, that way it uses the driver it likes best.

(basically seems that the mouse button now has the effect of pressing the delete key). anyway, i unwisely decided to restart my computer and unsurprisingly it doesn?t boot. get loud warning beeps if i try to press any buttons. i took the battery out, only for a few seconds, not really expecting it to do anything. but afterwards windows boots normally. and now almost everything is fine. the deleting action seems to have completely stopped. i ran a few virus scans and nothing came up.
the only problem im having now though is both my ethernet port (Nvidia nforce networking controller) and firewire (which i don't use) both have code 10 errors (this device cannot start) in device manager. both were fine before. my wireless is still working fine too. i've googled it quite a bit and ...

I am working on a friend's HP Pavilion A320N and I need to connect to the Internet to download various files...

I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GS with 2 desktops (hardwired) and 2 laptops (wireless) that are used with this router on a daily basis...

I attempted to connect this HP up to it and I am unable to ping the router - 192.168.1.1

I have tested out the cable and all else works fine, have uninstalled and reinstalled the NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller and TCP/IP...

The loopback ping to 127.0.0.1 (localhost) and ping of itself works fine - The green light for the ethernet port is on steady green and the yellow light flickers...Under Statistics, it shows sent packets, but no received packets...

When I disconnect the ethernet cable, it promptly reports that the "Network Cable is Unplugged"...

Under Device Manager, there are no issues with the NVIDIA Controller...

Have also reset the Cable Modem and Router to no avail...

Don't know where to go from here???

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated...

Mike...

Hi everyone. I'm working on a friends Compaq CQ50-215NR. The wireless works fine, but the ethernet jack on the side does not work. Checking the Device Manager, Network Adapters - NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller has a yellow ! (exclamation point) on it. It says that the device cannot start (Code 10).

I used CPUID - CPUZ to determine the chipset. It's a NVIDIA GeForce 8200M Rev. A2 chipset. I have downloaded the drivers from nvidia.com and tried installing them manually through the Device Manager, but it will not start. This laptop had Norton Internet Security 2010, and I thought it may be interfering, so I uninstalled it with the Symantec Norton eraser tool. Still didn't work.

Anyone have any ideas? I've googled like crazy, but have not found anything solid. Thanks in advance.

Hello all, I ran into a problem with my computer in which it will start up fine, but once I get to the desktop, it freezes. Like I can't click anything.

I found the problem, it's with the nvidia nforce networking controller packet scheduler miniport. I know this because I turned off all nonessential devices and the computer worked fine, but I need this to get internet, so this causes a problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this? I don't know what drivers to download, that's one of the problems.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
 

A:nVidia nForce Networking Controller - Packet Scheduler Miniport problem

Reinstalling the NForce drivers may help. You can download the latest NForce drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
But you need to know what the chipset on the motherboard is to choose the right NForce drivers for your system. You shoudl also go to Add & Remove Programs to uninstall the current NVIDIA NForce drivers before installing the new ones. And if you have an NForce 4 series motherboard make sure to not install the NVidia Firewall when going thru the install, its problematic.

Can anyone tell me what is going on? And/or what I need to tell it when this screen comes up.

The window asks user to choose Firewall profile

Then it wants a profile

I have Windows XP Pro on my home computer and AVG 8.5.287.

I am not networked, so I have no idea what this window is referring to.

Thanks, so much.

Okay, I'll take a guess here. Either AVG is reporting a false positive or something remote is attempting to access your PC without your permission. I believe it is more of the latter. If I am not mistaking there is a forum here that deals with removal of PC infections.

I am about to pull my hair out!!

I have been having connectivity and slow browsing issues for some time. I thought it was my ISP. But on further inspection, I see in my device manager under the network controller, "Nvidia nforce Networking controller #2" Which I though was odd that there would be a #2 on the end of it. So, I uninstall and re-install the device and drivers. Then it appears as #3.......#4......#5 and now I am up to #6.

I have tried everything I can think of. I have used driver sweeper to clean out all the Nforce trash.......used a registry cleaner. Nothing is working.

any and all help would be appreciated

Thanks Thevillain33
 

A:Nvidia nforce controller problems

The name at the end is insignificant, it doesn't affect the operation. It's just a Windows oddity. With XP, you can rename it to anything you like, but it seems harder with Vista.

The name has nothing to do with your browsing issue.
Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Hello everyone,

I am not sure if this question belongs here or not.

But anyway, I was looking at the Device Manager after clicking the Start button in Windows Vista. I was going through the devices and checking to see if they were up to date. Then I came across the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers. I looked at the drivers there and I saw: NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller. Then when I clicked on properties I saw: Enable automatic acoustic management. Under that it said: AAM Value 0-255. And 255 was showing in the box.

Now my questions are; What is Automatic Acoustic Management? What does it do? What does the numbers mean? and If I allow it will that be detrimental to my computer's performance? or If I allow it will it afect any of my computer's files? Should I even worry about changing this?

I have 2 controllers listed. The first controller, has 2 devices listed. At port 0, lists it as a disk drive, ST3160812AS. Then at port 1, lists it as a disk drive, TSST Corp DVD +/- RW TS-H653A. At port 0 that is where the enable Automatic Acoustic Management and an empty box to check is at. At port 1 it just has Let BIO select transfer mode and a box that is checked. the rest is shaded. The second controller has no devices listed.

I hope someone can help me with this or at least give me some information.

Hey All,

This is my first ever post so please go easy on me:-)

Ok, here's the deal...

I'm running Win7 Ultimate x64 and my PC has a ASUSTeK M2N32 WS Professional motherboard.

ALL IS WORKING PERFECT!!!!....except...my nForce network controller!

Consider this scenario, and maybe it'll explain my issue a little better:

I turn my PC on
Win7 OS loads
I open IE8 but I can't connect to the net
(note: at this point, I go to 'Network and Sharing Center' and the network picture under 'View you basic network information and set up connections' on the right side it says 'no internet connection'
I then go to Device Manager and expand Network Adapters
Under Network Adapters, i right click on NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet #2 --> select 'Disable' --> then I click on yes when the message appears to confirm that i want to disable the device
After that, I simply right click the same device and select 'Enable'.

....THEN THE INTERNET WORKS AGAIN!!!...Until I restart the PC then I have to disable/enable the adapter again!

What the heck is that all about? I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers and made sure i have the latest drivers.

Can any1 help? Much appreciated!

A:NVIDIA nForce Network Controller Problem

Hello Asuccar. Welcome to the Forum.

That motherboard has 2 Marvell 88E1116 LAN Chipsets on it.
If you are only using one LAN connection then go into the Network Connections and disable the one you are not using (#2?) and plug in to the one you are using (#1) and run it like that.

I suspect the IP addresses are changing each time you boot, a common issue using DNS and two NICs.

If you are trying to use both, then post back.

I know there are bunch of topics like this but I was too scared to try stuff suggested in them

Okay so here's the thing:
I recently upgraded to Windows 7. As I have an old computer I was thrilled to find it working.

But I have the infamous NVIDIA nForce Network Controller and I tried the thing they suggested on Microsoft website. I even tried updating drivers, since I figured the ones that came with the updates weren't good. And it fixed it. For a while.
Then few days ago (I couldn't run Aero or the games) I installed some Vista drivers for my graphics card (since they don't make them for Win 7) and even though it fixed the graphics problem, connection problems started again.
I don't know if it's related, but my connection drops every 30 seconds or so which is exactly what it did before. The "drop" is not enough to cause big problems but it's really annoying. Downloading speed jumps from 400kb/s to 320kb/s and it does it ALL the time. I get kicked off Skype and FB chat regularly. The Network access icon usually stays the same, but I sometimes see the red circle thingy, although not too often.

What do I do? As I said I read bunch of stuff but drivers aren't really my thing I don't want to poke around and screw it up even more
Please help
Thanks in advance

I would check your startup menu if it is reinstalling because the startup menu has it in it.
If nothing exists in your startup menu then I would look here.

I would suggest to look at your services menu and disable or stop it from loading on reboot.

Here's how you can do it.
1. Enter Contol Panel
2. Select Administrative Tools
3. Select Service in the large right window.
4. Look for the Nvidia Service that ppertains to you and select with mouse to open
5. Take a look if it the correct one then disable and hit apply
6. Get out and reboot then try to uninstall.

Hi all,

Two nights ago I hit a problem when trying to access the internet on my home computer running Vista. It was working fine up until then (build has been running for about 3 months) but when I booted up my connection icon came up with the yellow triangle warning against it.

Router is working fine (tried resetting) and everything else connecting through it works (xbox, homemate's PC etc). A 'Diagnose and Repair' found that "The network adapter 'Nvidia nForce Networking Controller' is experiencing driver or hardware related issues". I have used the device manager to try and find new drivers or to use the normal windows networking device, but nothing seems to work.

Anyone got any ideas?

Hi there Stillfoolish88,
How about trying a driver roll back? Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manger> right click on Nforce network card > properies > driver tab > roll back driver button. This is suppose to tell Windows to use the driver that you had prior to the windows updates.

I have an onboard Nvidia Nforce networking controller and a few days ago it suddenly just stopped working.

When I go to cmd and ipconfig, it tells me that my IP address is 169.254.177.56 and subnet mask is 255.255.0.0

I understand the IP address it gives me is one windows gives me when it cannot reach the DHCP server, which it cannot. I did ipconfig /release, then ipconfig /renew and it said it cannot reach the DHCP server.

I have another ethernet card in my computer, which is not onboard. That one works fine with the same exact port on my modem(which has 4 ports).

I've tried reinstalling the Nforce drivers, running in safe mode.. nothing has worked for me.

Please help! I'll supply any additional information you need. EDIT: Just fixed it, Flashed my BIOS back to a previous version.

Hello all, first time poster here. I'll get right to the problem.


I'm trying to connect my computer to the internet through Ethernet (ATT DSL) but having a bit of a problem.

When I try to install the software for the router, it says that it can't find the device (Router). Ok, now it's saying that my network cable is unplugged but it is. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the driver (Which is 73.0.6.0 4/30/09 and also the one that windows provides...forget which it is; it says 2008 I think as the year it was from) disable/reboot/enable. When I run diagnostics it says that I have a Driver/Hardware problem. nForce IS shown in Device Manager as working correctly. I've read that a driver from Vista may help. Could this be the case? I have a Vista Ultimate 64 disk; wishful thinking but is there a chance an nForce driver may be on there, and would I be able to use it for this purpose without having to install the whole OS?

I'm using an eMachine Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Also...I am typing this from a computer at the library. It will be hard for me to get a driver off the internet if I have to. ):

NVIDIA nForce system management controller has a yellow sign on the icon.
When I startup my computer, a message pops up in the task bar called Driver Installation (or something similar). It keeps loading, but then it says that it failed, and when I click on it, the driver that Windows was trying to install was:

Note:
There is also a red X on the network tray icon on the taskbar, like this:
This is not my desktop, but this is an example of how the icon looks like. ONLY the icon, as I said I can't connect nowhere, wireless doesn't detect anything, and wired network doesn't work either, and the icon with the red x is always there...

So the internet on my girlfriend's computer just stopped working. I tried every simple fix I could think of with no success. I called Windows tech support and they tell me my network controller is corrupted and I have to use the initial windows install disc to reinstall all the drivers back to the factory settings. The only problem is she cannot find the disc. I've tried to find the drivers on Nvidia's website and I download what I think are the right drivers and the problem remains. Is there a way to reset the ethernet controller to confirm that is the problem? I've tried to uninstall the controller and restarting the computer so the system detects the new hardware and installs it on its own but the issue remains. As I have it right now I have a cable modem plugged directly into her computer. Any ideas for my next step?
