Hello all, I am sure you get this a lot but I am very much computer dumb, I'd appreciate any help possible.

I re-installed Windows 7(64 bit) onto new Hard Drive as my previous died, and now cannot access Internet even though the Ethernet cable is connected. It's highly frustrating, I've browsed other threads but none seems to fix my issue as it says to get drivers from other PC ( I am writing from my brothers) and transfer via USB stick, that's all well in good. But I don't have a clue which drivers are required and the ones I've tried so far are of no avail.

I brought my PC from Overclockers 3 years ago, I never received Motherboard CD though only W7 and graphics card CD.

I have a GIGABYTE Motherboards, and GTX 470 Graphics card, and Intel i7 processor , hope this information is helpful in helping me find correct drivers. Any more info required be sure to ask.

Many thanks, John.

EDIT: forgot to add im on Windows 7 Home Prem 64 Bit

Windows should be downloading a ethernet driver automatically through windows update. If not you can look at exactly which mobo you have, go to gigabytes website and look up your mobo, it should show you in the drivers+downloads tab which ethernet drivers to download.

EDIT: Post your mobo model please.

You can look that up on the actuall mobo itself, it should be right underneath the CPU socket.

In case it is the GA-P55-USB3 board here is the direct link to the page, just scroll down and download the LAN Driver. http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3...
