Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My Device Manager (Win XP Home) reports no Ehernet Controller, so I am unable to connect to Internet through my broadband/cable internet. It has been there before but not after a reformat and new loading of XP Home SP2. Can anyone advise what has happened and how to get the Ethernet Controller back on board and working? tm

Answers :

I dont know where it went ... I can tell you how to get it fixed. You will need your sneeker net to work unless you happen to have the original software that came with your NIC (Network Interface Card). Have the software, put it in and load the driver per instructions you will get from the software.
\015\012If you dont have the software, (You will need to know what kind of NIC you have) go to the Manufacturers website, search your NIC and down load it the software. Move the software to a floppy (if appropirate) or to a CD and (with your sneekers on, ) jog on over to ... the other computer and follow the steps above.
\015\012On the ohter hand, since Windows XP is pretty good at PnP (Plug and Play) your NIC may be dead and in need of replacement. Before you replace it (please be sure to observe static electricity precautions) find and remove the nic and then replace it in the slot and try again. Be sure you unplug your computer before you do this also.

Laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN SZ230P. It started freezing up. Looked in Task Manager and SYSTEM was using 80% or more of CPU. Reformatted using the recovery partition and problem was still there. Reformatted, again, using a Windows XP disc. Everything was going well until installation of the audio driver (SigmaTel), then the problem started again.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
