BSOD reboot, still BSOD problems & failure to recognize Ethernet card

Q: BSOD reboot, still BSOD problems & failure to recognize Ethernet card

After BSOD problems (0x00000050), I took my two month old Dell desktop back to Geek Squad under warranty. Said problem wasn't hardware, but software, and would charge to fix. I took it home and reinstalled Win 7. BSOD (0x0000007b) with a Dell installation CD, but otherwise fine except it keeps restarting itself at various intervals. When I tried installing drivers, it wouldn't recognize Ethernet card. Not sure what's going on. Wife thinks a no-name anti-virus CD will fix it all, but I'd appreciate your advice.

Preferred Solution: BSOD reboot, still BSOD problems & failure to recognize Ethernet card

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Didn't know where else to go so I'm posting here. I run a machine that I built and recently installed windows 8 a few months ago. As of now I haven't been pushing it and using the machine aggressively as I have with windows 7 previously. What I mean by that is I would have multiple programs running (mainly adobe) and too many chrome tabs, while only ever placing to sleep, rebooting once a week.

NOT the case since I installed Window 8! I only use chrome (the non-windows app version), and Open Office.

Suddenly it will lag on me. Having task manager open it would sayy 100% disk usage when nothing is being run. I thought it was windows maintenance and have since rescheduled the run.

Now it will lag anytime to the point where it will come up with the BSOD splash screen ("something unexpected.. system will reboot") and restarts. When it restarts it will fail to boot from disc. I have to physically turn off the computer with the button and restart that way. It will boot fine. Then the cycle happens again.

I have attached the dump files as per instructions. If you need any more information, please let me know.

A:Lag BSOD then failure to reboot

I'm late for work. A quick look at your reports doesn't show any memory dumps - so hardware is suspect.
Please start with these free hardware diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Then move onto these if the other's pass: Additional Hardware Diagnostics
Please post back with the results of the diagnostics.

I'll post back with more after work.

I purchased this computer from CyberPower PC, it worked fine the day I got it. On the second day I started getting some weird artifacting that progressively got worse for about 20 minutes followed by a Display Driver Not Responding Prompt, and concluded with a full lockup and a bsod. I was playing Left 4 Dead 1, at the time.

I let it sit for a minute or so and then went to check for any drivers that I could be missing. I downloaded the Nvidia drivers, and made sure that I had all of the critical updates - I did. Throughout this, the screen was artifacted all over, including IE. It was late, so I left it shutdown for the night, but the next morning it wouldn't boot up at all. During boot up the screen was once again very artifacted and it launched Start Up Repair, or whatever it's called. It was unable to find a problem. It didn't boot up for 2 days.

Magically, it booted up last night and worked for about 3 hours, then it did the artifact -> freeze -> crash routine that I love so much, this time on Eve Online. Presently, it's working so long as I don't run any games (no artifacts at all) but the moment I load up a game, it will crash again, and repeating that too much would very likely cause it to not boot up at all.

Anyway, I'm hoping that some kind soul will be able to enlighten me as to what the problem is. or at least point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.

I have an HP Pavillion 6370Z (330MHz), which I updated a while back from windows 98 to Windows XP service pack 2. PC works fine except now that I want to connect it to the internet via DSL, I I can't. It used to have only a dial up connection to the internet, but also a home network setup for two computers. The PC has a 3COM 3C450 Fast Ethernet card

I am trying to connect it to the internet now with my Embarq 660 series DSL modem; but the card and the modem donít recognize each other. The modem has no problem otherwise with my other computers when connected directly or through a wireless router (Netgear WNDR3300) .

This is what I have done so far for this PC:
1. Connected PC directly to DSL modem
2. Plugged Ethernet cable into router
3. Tried 3 different Ethernet cables, including very short and very long cable.
4. Called CenturyLInk (Embarq) and they said it should work without anything if cable is directly plugged into DSL modem
5. Checked in System>hardware whether card may have a problem
6. Did the network enable, reset winsock, reboots, reset modem, etc (MS instructions)
7. Replaced the original driver for the card
8. Created network connection without requiring password
9. Probably a few more things, but thatís all I can remember

The DSL modem lights up DSL and Internet, but never the Ethernet LED

Are there any ideas out there for this problem?

Hello everyone.

I have attached as requested the archive containing the SF Diagnostic Tool v5 dumps.

I am receiving a huge number of BSOD errors, after each one the nVidia graphics card is nowhere to be found, rebooting the system does not help, in order to bring the nVidia card back I need to shutdown and power on the system, 2 attempts are required, first power on attempt always fails and the system shuts down right after the bios logo.

The video card was recently changed to a brand new one.

Hoping you guys can help me solve this irritating problem.

Thank you in advance.

Do a Windows Update and install any drivers it offers. Reboot.

If this file below is still the same modified date, then I would rename it to EMSC.bak and then delete the corresponding key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services

If this file below has been updated, leave it all be as is.

I booted it again once more and it was okay, but the next day the same thing occurred from startup. Basically the colours can be seen and all, but its to blurred to make out the words. It continues to the window startup screen then the monitor loses signal. After a while a bleach screen appears but its too blurred to make out the words. Below are the specs of my com:

Hi, I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit and it has been working fine ever since I got it. I recently installed the peerguardian vista beta (a process which needs you to disable unsigned driver protection. This was fine until a certain windows update that addresses kernel/driver issues was installed and peerguardian stopped working.

I uninstalled PG, enabled unsigned driver protection again and continued but ever since I have been having random restarts, all to do with CI.dll ... I've searched this forum and almost everywhere else and can't find any information relating to my problem, all I know fro my searchs is that CI.dll has something to do with drivers?

I'm using avast as my antivirus and windows firewall.

Have athlon64 x2 6000, 2 GB ram, and a GF 8500. (also have Nova-T-500 and Sony Ericsson phone software among other things if thats of any use)

Have a Dell 8250 that won't recognize the Ethernet card or something. I want to get this computer going again or back on the net, because it has an awesome sound card in it for recording and such. It also has a better processor than the one I'm currently using. Was a fast machine for it's time, and it will still get the job done for what I do with it. Now a good while ago I downloaded some drivers from Dell to stick in this thing. OK, I loaded them onto my Zip drive, and then I tried transferring them onto the Dell machine from that method. Uh it didn't work... I wonder why ? Let me know if anyone has any ideas to help get this Dell back in action for me. Thanks..

My grand kids love watching YouTube Video's and such, and this ancient HP isn't making the trip any longer.. Processor (?) is super slow or something. Hec I don't know... LOL

PS. I had a disk that resolved the issue one time, but for some reason it won't resolve it anymore.. I can't figure that one out either, because it is a factory disk that came with the comp.

About two weeks ago, my XP machine got cursed by blue screens every time I ran it for more than 20 minutes. Mostly 0XA IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and 0X1A MEMORY_MANAGEMENT errors. According to BlueScreenView, ntkrnlpa.exe was the main culprit. I tried a whole bunch of things, but they didn't help:
Ran memtest86 for 9 hours, it reported no problems with RAM
Updated graphics card drivers
Removed all graphics card drivers
System restored
Repaired Windows with the installation CD
tried RAM in different slots
Finally I checked my hard drive with Seatools, and it reported 205 bad sectors over 3 long tests. I figured the hard drive was responsible, so I bought a new one and got myself Windows 7 for the fresh install.
The blue screens persist. According to BlueScreenView, 85% of the minidumps are 0X1A MEMORY_MANAGEMENT errors, with the main culprit being ntoskrnl.exe. I ran Memtest86+ again, this time for 24 hours, but again it reported no errors. A bit disappointing, since my RAM has a lifetime warranty.
My system specs are:
Intel Q6600
Asus P5n32e-SLI
Seasonic 900w
Nvidia 8800 GTX
Corsair CM2X2048 - 6400CD
Western Digital 1tb blue
Any idea what the issue could be? Could it be a failing graphics card, motherboard, or PSU?

How do I build a program without the internet? I wanted to get VLC but all the guides say I need to connect to the Universe Server or whatever it is, to build it.

Which brings me to this, how do I get online if Ubuntu doesnt recognize the ethernet card? I tried 2, and I downloaded drivers...except there for windows, which is all I could find. I couldnt find anything for Linux on either card.

The ethernet card that I want to use is - 3com 3c905-tx. The other one is a couple versions older. The 3com website doesnt have a linux driver for it. So, can I put it in the bios prior to loading or something? How does it work with Linux? Ive probably spent 1hr total on the OS. Sorry for the lack of knowledge and possibly newbie question.

A:How do I get Ubuntu to recognize my ethernet card? (Also other Linux questions)

It's alright. I'm sure even the smartest techie would be confused

Well, you may want to try using a Linux-compatible ethernet card, as your card may not be compatible.

Hi Sevenforums

My PC is lately beginning to freeze randomly. Sometimes I just surf the web and then my music lags for 20 seconds and everything freezes. Sometimes Windows says that it has recovered from a "Video Hardware Error". And other times it's just coming back to normal without any message.

Today I came back to my PC, it was turned on. And my monitor was on "standby" which it does automatically after 10 minutes. But when I moved on the mouse it didn't turn on or the PC didn't respond, then after 30 seconds the PC restarted with the screen where you press enter to start normally again.

When I checked in the problem registry there where three problems. Two "Video Hardware Errors", and one BSOD error.

I find it pretty annoying so I hope you can help me. I've attached the zip.

Hi all.

Chkdsk /r took two days to get to 64% so I shut it down. was able to run windows but then tried to run other softwares to see if i had bad sectors and wanted them relocated. ran diskpatch and ran the scan for read errors. while it was also hanging I decided to abort then it shows up to 32 read errors (this is not a read/write test) read only test, but somhow either it or the disk itself relocated some of the bad sectors, among them was first few sectors, so my partition doesnt start at 0 anymore maybe like 30 or 60 or so anyways.

Tried to reboot but i get blue screen briefly followed by reboot. Now trying scan disk in recovery, and seems to get stuck on 50%. wanted to do a windows xp install on my other partitions but it doesnt show partition C as a NTSC anymore, it shows unknown file system format. also I wanted to try and reinstall-repair windows over exisiting xp on C:, cant do thaat since it is stuck at unknown file system. I will leave chkdsk /p to run over night but if problem persists i think im gonna have to format c:

So since last year, my computer has random BSOD or Reboots. Since it happens every few months, I just dealt with it. I dealt with the fact that I naturally had a old, crap computer. I assumed there was no viruses because my AV didn't pick up anything. Also used Malwarebytes or something with a similar name, since I can't remember off the top of my head.

By the way, a few weeks ago I downloaded XPThemes just to customize my desktop.
I followed these methods. How To Install Ux Theme Multi Patcher - Customize.org (maybe this could shed some light?)

Then the other day, I google imaged a picture of Brock because I wanted to photoshop a "wanted list". One of the sites I went to, which ironically I used last time because it's the same picture gave me a trojan. According to AVG.

I also installed a recent Java update to my computer. That's when I noticed things were starting to get suspicious. My computer were starting to show signs of malfunction.

A:BSOD Plannetside 2 (steam) black screen> reboot> BSOD crash report

A stop 0x116 is a display/graphics related issue. Many a factors or components may cause such a BSOD.

First of all, it is the display driver. From your BSOD dumps, I have noticed that it crashed the same irrespective of the driver version over time. So overlooking this part right now. Will concentrate it on later again, if needed.

Next thing is overclocking, which sometimes lead display to crash. And, you are slightly overclocked.

CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed: 3400
CurrentSpeed: 3411
As the system is crashing, you should stop overclocking. Set all the hardware elements like CPU, GPU and RAM to default; and reset the BIOS to default too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Heat is another factor. Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Also, dust accumulation causes heat, and dust accumulation depends on the age of the system. How old the system is? If possible, dismantle it and clean the inside carefully .... specially the air vents and fan grills, so that it can blow the hot air out easily.
Dont forget to apply thermal paste to the CPU when re-seating the system.

Insufficient power supply is also a great cause of display crash. Check if the CPU is supplying adequate power there or not.

I was merely resizing a Windows Explorer window on the desktop when the monitor went black for 15-20 seconds, then the mobo splash screen came up, and Windows booted back up. The "Windows shut down unexpectedly" window came up and the details said it was a BSOD. The pertinent log files from the DM Log Collector app are attached.

*edit* I built this system over 3.5 years ago and I've never reloaded or reformatted anything in that time. Maybe it's about time to reformat C: since I have all my data files on a separate drive anyway.

I installed an antivirus program and Adobe Acrobat on Win 7 64 bit ultimate. It requested a system restart. Upon restart, I had a BSOD immediately after the Windows 7 splash screen (before Win requests my user password). Upon BSOD, it auto-restarted my PC and automatically brought me in to Windows repair. After waiting 45 minutes and seeing Windows repair wasn't doing anything, I just turned off and turned on my PC. I got another BSOD. Then, I rebooted again, and it was able to load into Windows.

I've attached my dump file. Any what's causing this and how I can fix?

I get a bsod when waking up my computer with either 0x000000e1 or 0x0000001e. I cannot remember which but am pretty sure it is the former. After my computer restarts from the bsod everything seems to run slowly. The computer logs in slowly, windows explorer freezes, chrome does not download or log in properly, and cryengine crashes more than usual. After a clean restart my computer seems to 'fix' itself - that is, until I try to wake it up again.
I did recently install the GeForce 314.07 driver and am currently reinstalling it, but I would like to know now if that is the issue or if there is something else before I go testing things and pulling my hair out again.

A large number of faults have developed very quickly (over the course of about 3 days) with my Toshiba laptop.
Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600) (9600.winblue_gdr.140305-1710)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System Model: SATELLITE S50D-A
BIOS: 1.40
The first issue is that the laptop keyboard will usually fail within 5 minutes of start-up, becoming completely unresponsive. Sometimes the touch-pad has become unresponsive as well.
Occasionally I will get the battery error symbol. The Toshiba health monitor will then tell me that the health of the battery is poor. This happens occasionally, not every boot. Most of the time the battery works fine, it charges normally and the laptop can function without the charger.
Usually about 30 minutes (although it does vary) after booting the laptop will slow down and then BSOD, it will then tell me it is gathering error information, will reach 100% and then freezes. I've left it about 30 minutes in this state before. A list of the BSODs can be found here.
Sometimes on start-up, usually after having shut it down recently, the monitor will not display anything, not even back-lit. This happens with nearly every restart too.
Sometimes the laptop also loads very slowly, with the desktop background loading, then the taskbar and finally the desktop icons.

Please provide this info for a more complete report: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.

I purchased my HP Compaq 8710p laptop from Purdue University in May of 2008. A little after that it was stolen from me. Thankfully I had it LoJack secured, and they were able to recover it in London. When I got my computer back, however, the Windows XP that it had come pre-installed with was replaced with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I never had an issue with it for two years until now.

It seems like my computer overheats more often then it should, especially if it is on my lap or the fan is covered at all. This may be normal but even more annoying than that is whenever it shuts down from an overheat or it goes in to sleep mode or I ever have to manually shut it down, it gets to the Windows loading screen where the colors come in from the sides, then freezes, flashes the BSOD and then reboots. When I try to run the Repair, it take about half an hour then says Repair couldn't fix the computer.

Anyone have any ideas?

I had a previous thread where I had problems involving my old ATI graphics card, and it ended with having to replace the video card. I replaced the video card, and I'm still having some problems.

The card I have now is a Nvidia card, and when I try to run this Nvidia program to change the card's settings, my computer crashes. Not when I change the settings, but when I try to open the program. It's a little strange to me that I've been having GPU-related errors with two completely different video cards.

EDIT: I was looking up the errors and I guess the program (nTune) is known for causing these errors. I'm going to try another program.

You are right, it is nTune.

I am getting the BSOD and I a 90% sure it is due to incompatibility with my video card and something else in my desktop. I have included the Zip file of the latest crash. This has been happening for some time now, I have been looking for the solution but have had little success. I have even uninstalled all drivers in multiple locations on my PC and downloaded the latest ones and still no progress.

Can anybody help me?

Hi everyone,

Within the last 5 or 6 weeks I have experienced the BSOD frequently. I reinstalled XP 2 days ago to try and rid the problem, but it still remains, all-be-it, slightly different, i.e. before the reinstall the BSOD was kernel_stack_inpage_error and kernel_data_inpage_error. Now the error is driver_irql_not_less_or_equal with a STOP error:

0x000000D1 (0x00000009, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000009)

I have tested memory with memtest and windows memory tester and no problems came up. I have also tested my primary and secondary HD's with no errors.

About 2/2 1/2 months ago I installed an Nvidia Geforce 6200 256mb GFX card.

My specs are
AMD Athlon 1.25Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 6200 256mb
386mb PC2100 RAM
Primary HD is Seagate 80GB IDE and slave is Maxtor 120GB IDE.
300W power supply.

Is it possible that with teh installation of the new GFX card that my power source is not large enough to cope or sometyhing similar with the RAM? The crashes only seem to occur when the computer is idle, i.e. if I am actively using applications/games/internet, crashes do not occur.

6 minidumps are listed as you sendit sorry, hope they are relevant!

Cheers for the help.

A:BSOD - problems with video card?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

It is entirely possible that your psu is the culprit. Particularly if it is a no name brand.

Take a look at this PSU wattage calculator. Add a further 30% to what ever figure it gives you as a safety margin.

2 of your minidumps are corrupt and unreadable.

2 crash at ntoskrnl.exe. This is the Windows bootup kernel. They have bugchecks of D1.

1 crashes at NDIS.sys. This is the windows NDIS 5.1 wrapper driver. It has a bugcheck of D1.

1 crashes at psched.sys. This is the Windows MS QoS Packet Scheduler. It has a bugcheck of D1.


The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your page file etc.

Everything points to a ram problem. However, an underpowered or faulty psu would cause these errors as well.

I've just built a new computer last friday and i've had some problems with it BSODing.

It seems to have problems when playing games and starting videos on youtube or w/e.
When it crashes it won't reboot normally until i leave it off for about 5 min. It reboots fine in safe mode every time. This seems like a lack of cooling to the video card at first but i have run some stress tests that put the video card temp leveling out at 80?C.

I've installed and reinstalled the newest drivers, however, sometimes when i reboot windows will have a pop up bubble that says my driver version (266.58) has stopped responding but successfully recovered. This message pops up while my screen is flickering in and out.

I didn't know how to upload the perfmon/report html file because either i'm dumb or the directions aren't very clear.

These are some of the errors i have been having. They seem to be pretty consistent after a crash.

A:BSOD: problems with video card driver?


Start by reseating your graphics card; make sure it's in securely. If that doesn't work, do you have any other cards you could try? If you have onboard graphics, give them a try; if not, try to borrow a card from a friend.

There is a January 2011 version of your graphics drivers out; try uninstalling your current drivers in Device Manager, and then installing these ones: NVIDIA DRIVERS 266.58 WHQL

Hi there,

As you can see from the following thread I have been having problems with my graphics card.


I am now convinced it is another problem, very possibly to do with a virus or 12.

I have attached the report as stated in the forum, but if you look at it you can see it's saying that my antivirus, a paid AVG 9 license, is not working. When I try and go into AVG and see if the resident shield is turned on, it won't let me in and gives me "0xE0018E02 Error during plug in loading."

I am running msert.exe, the Microsoft Safety Scanner, and so far we are halfway through the scan and no infected files have been detected.

Anyways, my computer is repeatedly crashing and is really slow and is generally annoying me, especially as I have just started my new semester at university!

Please help!

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

I have been getting a few different random BSODs recently after installing a new EVGA GTX 760 4gb.

I've gotten BSODs after installing the card after tabbing out from a game, trying to log off of windows, and other times randomly. Also when my computer starts up it goes to the bios menu for about 30 seconds and doesn't let me press any keys. After that it boots normally, but I've never had that happen before. Otherwise, the card seems to be running fine and the driver's are up to date. Sorry I have so little information but I have no idea why the BSODs are happening other than that they started after installing my new card.

I've been browsing the site and the internet for a sollution to my problem, but can't seem te find it. There are similar postings, but they're always just a little different. So that's why i posted the new thread.

Since a couple of days i've been experiencing troubles shutting down my PC and using my USB ports. It started when i tried to log onto my work from home. It failed and the IT guy from work told me to reinstall citrix reciever. So I did and I was able to work from home. After finishing and logging out (to get back to my own PC) I found that my USB portst didn't work anymore. I tried rebooting, but af 10 minutes of "shutting down" I got a blue screen: Driver Power State Failure with code 1000009f.

I did the following:
- tried system restore - it failed with different time stamps
- update drivers - they were all up to date the system said
- Malware Bytes, CC Cleaner, MS Essentials, Hitman pro - Did them all, had some minor stuff, fixed that, problem remained.
- SFC/scannow - no problems
- Memory check - no problems

As it is now, the only update I have left is the update to WIN10. However it has tried and failed during a few of the reboots, so that doesn't seem to be and option.

After try all different kinds of things from a lot of posts I decided to refresh my windows install. Did a lot of updating and still the problem remains. Although I now found out that USB devices that are plugged in upon startup work. Once I unplug en replug them, t... Read more

Thanks in advance for any insight! Also, if you guys have any tips on how to analyze these dumps it would be awesome. I'd love to be able to look at these files, I had a setup before with WinDBG but I was never able to garner the same information as these forums.

A:Sporadic shutdowns. No BSOD until capture card removed, then get BSOD.

No antivirus?

Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Scan with Kaspersky TDSSKiller:Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

ESET online scanner: Free Online Virus Scanner | ESET

Run a System file check (SFC): SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run Disk Check on your Hard Drive(s): Disk Check

For your BSOD, Please follow the instructions that were given by Dsprague in this thread: Brand new machine, BSOD occasionally while running DVR software.

Sorry if this has been posted before, I did a search and returned nothing.

I am running Windows XP on a laptop with a slot for SD cards. I bought a 4 gig SD card during a woot-off, knowing that the current industry standard is 2 gig..but when I received it, it is only recognizing it as 985MB..is there anything I can do to make it recognize the full size, or at the very least, 2 gig?

The SD card is a Connect-3D brand.

Thanks in advance for all the help!

My ethernet card runs fine off the router and hub, but does not read directly off my cable modem. When I switch the Cat 5's over to run directly off the modem and try to release the IP's and renew them, it won't release. It locks up for a while and comes back saying it can't do it. I tried everything else including throwing the device out of my device menu and letting Windows find it again and make more than one TCP/IP so that one takes over PPP. (It wasn't available at first) Whats going on? Do I need a new driver? Here's the problem, I got the ethernet card out of a old system that belonged to someone else and I don't have a clue what it is nor does it tell me.

A:Problems with ethernet card.

Quite possiblily you need a cat5 crossover cable from the modem to the nic, the router probably already has the crossover function built into it.

Hello, I hope some one out there can be of some help.

I am currently using an Ethernet to USB adapter to hook up to my hub. I want to change this to a straight ethernet connection.

When I install the Ethernet card and uninstall and unplug the Ethernet to USB adapter it doesnt seem to want to work correctly.

In the Network Connections list it shows that the Ethernet card is connected and is sending but NOT receiving packets.

Doing a Network Diagnostic shows that the card passes everything, BUT in the same test it is trying to access the USB adapter that is no longer installed or pluged into the machine.

This is the second card I have tried, I exchanged the first one in hopes that it was a physical problem. I have also tried both the CAT5 and the CAT5 Patch cables, tho it should be just the CAT5 cable.

Hooking it up directly to the cable modem gives me the same results as when hooked into the hub.

From all that I have seen, it looks to be a software related issue.

I have tried the Windows XP Network Wizard, but it didnt help.

It looks like the computer is looking for the USB adapter even though it is not installed on the computer.

Is there a setting someplace that i have missed? or is it just the typical windows problem where it doesnt let you do what you want to.

System Specs:
1.6 Ghz P4
640 MB ram
Geforce 4 ti4400
Linksys LNE100TX (v5) Fast Ethernet Adapter

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,

Wow that is a hard one. Maybe you can put the usb card back in and try disabling it in the device manager. Maybe the ethernet card will work then.

I need help... I went to install my new D-Link Ethernet card, but when I booted up my machine with the card in it, the "New Hardware" wizard did not come up. So, I tried to do it the other way (start > settings > control panel > Add New Hardware), but that didnt work either. I installed the diskette that came with it, but the computer doesnt know what the drivers are there for, because it doesnt know there is a Ethernet Card in the back. I am really stuck. I have all the drivers on the diskette, so If anyone knows the problem, please let me know...

I bought the card used and didn't have a program disk so I went to the manufacturers website and downloaded the drivers and software for it. I then went to the add new hardware setting and went through all the steps and as the software was being loaded I keep getting messages that say cannot find protman.dos, protman.exe and ndishlp.sys so I went to find files or folders and it says that it's no where on any of my harddrives. I'm trying to setup a external dsl modem and I need that card to work. Anybody have a fix for this please let me know ASAP. According to the error msgs it also says its a windows 98 file and asks for the second edition disk to be entered but I borrowed my folks 98 second edition disk to put 98 on my system so I don't have the disk.

I recently purchased a SOHOware 10/100 PnP PCI Ethernet card, and after inserting the card into the PCI slot and restarting the computer, the card is not automatically detected by Windows 95 (SR1, by the way) as it should be. In fact, it is as if the card is not there at all. I tried manually installing the driver, but after restarting the computer, the card is flagged with the hated exclamation mark in Device Manager. The status message does not indicate any conflicts, but rather indicates changing the driver for the card (which I have done several times). I even removed other PCI cards and placed the ethernet card in other slots, but with no success. The tech support people at SOHOware told me that this was because my motherboard doesn't support bus mastering, but I checked that; it does. I checked my BIOS setup to make sure that it was set to level (it was). Does anyone have any ideas? Anything? Please, if anyone can help, please do!

I'm having serious problems installing a PCI Realtek 10/100 megabit ethernet card on our Windows 98 PC. The card apparently was installed correctly in the PCI slot (Windows 98 recognises it in new hardware wizard) but when I went into device manager there was a red X next to the card, marked as Realtek RTL 8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC stating error code 2. Which apparently means that the device loader was unabled to load the drivers or something. There was something in the list of adaptors that said 'Existing NDIC driver' with a yellow exclamation mark next to it I think, and this gave a message that it could not load the drivers.

So I removed the device and the driver and tried to reinstall the card using new hardware wizard. But everytime you try and install the drivers, it asks for the Windows 98 CD ROM. We only have a Cd called Windows 98 SE because microsoft didn't supply us with an install disk and we had to to buy one later. Anyway if you put that in, it searches through the files and installs several to Windows/System, then it stops and says "Please insert the disk marked CPS.CAB" and click OK to continue". If you just say, ok, it then announces that Windows cannot find the file RNR20.DLL. If you click "skip file" it finishes off ok. If you try and add the protocols NETBUI and TCP/IP in network neighbourhood as the manual for the ethernet card asks you to do, it repeats the process above with the Windows 98 CD ROM.
