I upgraded my friends GPU with a gigabyte GT 430.

We tried out some games to see how it did. The game needed a driver update so we updated the driver. After we rebooted his PC it wouldnt connect to internet. We tried rebooting the router, reinstalling the GPU drivers but nothing worked

HIs specs:
Intel pentium dou 2,4 GhZ
3 GB RAM
GT 430
MSI motherboard (really dont know what type it is)
Windows vista 32 bit

Right click on it to open the Network and Sharing Center. On the left, click Change Adapter Settings, and let me know what you see. Are you trying to use wired or wireless?

Have you tried rolling back the drivers to eliminate that? Or did you just reinstall?

Which driver was it exactly? Was it for the GT 430? If so, try going into the Device Manager and rolling back the drivers.

Go to Start, right-click on Computer, and hit Manage. On the left panel, go to the Device Manager. Find Display Adapters, and under there should be your GT 430. If not, then something is wrong with the seating of the graphics card. If it shows, and displays no errors, right-click and select Properties. Under the Drivers tab, there should be an option to Roll Back Drivers. Let us know if that option is grayed out.

When we go the the network adapter properties the only thing it says is "Networkadapters" and nothing else
Display adapters it says wich version windows wich driver version etc

We did force shutdown because the pc was stuck on "shutingdown" could that be the case?
