I purchased a used AMD Athlon 64 installed windows 7 and the internet driver adapter is not working. I am at school and looking for a driver that will fix the problem.

The CPU has nothing to do with it. The driver is for the motherboard. Make and model?

What do you mean by "internet Driver"? The CPU doesn't really connect to the internet except thru the motherboards NIC. to get the driver for that, you need to know what motherboard you have.

Or it could be a PCI NIC, there's no telling.

Reminds me of my teenage years as a freelance computer tech in my hometown. People had no idea what questions to ask, they just know something's broken.

Best job ever, by the way. Got paid $50 to "fix" the internet for this woman. She'd changed her homepage to the following: http: / / w w w. alta vista. com. Every time she opened IE, she got a page not found error and just assumed her computer was broken.

I wasn't planning to charge her, I just explained that website addresses aren't English and don't need spaces between the "words" and told her to not hand edit settings she didn't understand. She was so grateful she paid me anyway.

Good times.
