Hi Everyone,

I've been putting together a new rig and found out that the ethernet controller is not working. It's been bothering me for the past few days. I'm thinking it might be the motherboard.

Anyways, I have a MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard with core i7 3770k running Windows 7 pro 64 bit.

I tried installing the device drivers that came with the MB disk. There is still a yellow exclamation point in device managers. When I open up the device properties, i see a "This device cannot start code 10" message. I also uninstalled and tried installing Windows generic Ethernet controller driver for windows 7 64 bit.

I also used CCleaner and reinstalled the lan network driver that came with the MB disk.

Is my motherboard defective?

Thanks,
Choua

Hi Choua,

Same motherboard, same problem here.. I already tried installing the latest drivers, but no luck.
I also think the board is defective.

Have you found a solution maybe?

Thanks

I too have the same problem.

Tried all different drivers, tried updating the bios to the most recent version too.

No effect.

Anyone fixed it, or are the boards defective?

Sorry guys, no solution either. I'm sending this one back and will get a new one.

Hopefully the 2nd one works and I'll update you guys.

Update!!

I received my replacement board yesterday and it works fine. I'm not sure what was causing theissue with the ethernet port code 10 error but it's definitely related to the hardware.

It worked fine sitting on a box,put it together in my case, ethernet controller isn't powered again.

WTF. I am disgusted with MSI.

Prematurely shot my wad on that one, I'm an idiot. Extra risers in my case were shorting it out.
