  1. Did you install the "Chipset" driver for your motherboard before installing the network driver? Some boards are rather picky about the order in which drivers are installed and it's always a good idea to start with the Chipset driver.

  2. thank u for replying ..
    i already have followed the order but to no avail
    i don't think it is an issue with drivers because it says all the drivers are "on system".
    could it be pertaining to some settings in bios or some NIC settings ?? :??: :??: http://img.tomshardware.com/forum/uk/icones/confused.gif

    Have a look in Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager to see if the NIC is actually enabled and check that it has a driver with RT at the front of the name. Chances are it's disabled as it goes off when Windows comes on duty so you have only to enable it to get it working.

  4. i had a look at them ,it is enabled(use this device)and have realtek drivers

    [#0005ff]Go into Control Panel>Network Setup Wizard and go through that process. Does it refer to the ethernet connection as a valid device? If it doesn't, that process may force Windows to "see" and recognise the connection.[/#000ff]
  6. I got the solution by changing its property of 'speed and duplex' to full 10Mbps.


    Thank u all for replying. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

    Can you please post some of the detail from the blue screen? What would be useful is the numeric code - 0x0000?? - and ANY_WORDS_JOINED_UP by underscores.
