So I need some help of how to get it to work. I also have 2 ethernet spots on my comp and they work fine. I tried to get some screen shots of my setup

Its been like this for a long time and i guess i'm finally getting around to doing something about it.

some of my pc parts are

CPU:

Overclocked to 3.0GHz and water cooled

Graphics card:

Please post if any other information is needed.

Try the USB without overclocking. When I had my old Pentium 4 Computer, the USB wouldn't work unless i left my clocks at default settings. Even a 0.1% overclock would make the USB unusable.

Just my 2 cents.

Hope you figure out your problem.

Edit: My bad. I read it wrong lol.

Try Uninstalling it from device manager.

go into device manager and just uninstall the adapter, take it out, and then when you take it out and put it back in and reinstall

Ok sorry for the delay but i'm in college so i just had finals then i moved back home.

But i did take a look of where it is on my motherboard and it is in a very spot just under my CPU so the hoses from my watercooling system kind of block it in.

I tried to work around them but then discovered that the network adapter is screwed to the motherboard. This makes in almost impossible to remove without taking out the hoses from my cooling system which i don't have anymore of and i would have to find some more tubing

Is there a way to make it seem to the computer that i physcially unplugged it without actually doing so?
This is the info i really need.
