Lan problem Tags: Motherboards LAN Windows XP Last response: April 20, 2003 3:16 AM in Motherboards Share BigFatBastard April 16, 2003 10:12:39 AM I have just built my first system from scratch and everything went well except that I have not been able to conect to the internet(ADSL) through either of the built in lan ports. MB - A7N8X Deluxe OS - Windows XP Also is there an easy way to remove/delete Windows XP, as I would like to try the install from scratch again, I tried to reformat the drive, but, XP will not cooperate. Thanks .... BFB Plan ahead, it wasn't raining when Noah built the ark! More about : a7n8x del lan problem aliu42 April 16, 2003 10:56:08 AM First things first... To reinstall Windows XP... you just need to boot from the CD Rom again...like you did before...delete the old partition...and go from there... Shouldn't be a problem...if your trying to remove XP from within XP, that won't work... Okay...now...here's the funny part about the LAN ports on any Nforce 2 board... They won't work until you install the Nvidia Nforce2 Driver set..see link below.. <A HREF="http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=nforce_udp_winxp_2.03" target="_new">http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=nforce_udp_winxp_2.03...;/A> So..basically what you have to do is install XP..and then imediately thereafter...install the Nvidia motherboard drivers... I've found the easiest way to do this...is to just burn them to a disk before installation..and then copying them over.. Or..you can create a second partition on your hard drive...and just store them there... Hope this helps..
