Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

How do i get the Ethernet controller to work after a new install of windows?


Answers :

Hi,


If you have reinstalled windows in your computer, most likely some of the device drivers have not yet been recognized by the Operating System it is because it requires a driver, or the software that you need to install in order for that particular device to function... in your case the ethernet controller. To check if there are missing drivers you need to install, go to DEVICE MANAGER. The Faster way to go there is...

on the keyboard, press ALT+Windows key. It will then open the RUN command box. Type devmgmt.msc then hit ENTER. Device Manager will then show-up. Check and see if there "bangs" in there like ?, !, or a red X. If there is/are question mark/s, that mean driver is missing. If it shows an exclamation, that means driver was not properly installed or there is a conflict with the driver. If you see a red X, that means driver is disabled. Those are the things you have to check inside Device Manager.

Here are some solutions for that...

1. ? = go to your computer manufacturer's website and download the driver/s from there if driver cd is not available. Then after downloading the driver, install it.
e.g. DELL - http://support.dell.com

2. ! - uninstall driver and reinstall it. To uninstall the driver, just click on that device inside Device Manager then hit DEL on the keyboard

3. red X - right click on that device then left click ENABLE

Let me know if you will need further assistance. Hopefully, solution I gave works for you.
