yes i did, but never worked. this was the driver i tried : Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. i have downgraded the system to Vista ultimate 32 bit i can get all the drivers except for the Network controller, wireless driver am able to install. could there be issues with this driver with this version of Windows (Vista ultimate) ?
WR2 Thanks for sharing your ideas with me, i just discovered that the the network port is damaged due to someone who cut the network cable without removing it from the termination points one point being the laptop network port. I appreciate so much. thanks man!!
i tell you, i tried all i could and i had to load windows from windows Vista home premium to Windows 7 ultimate and it never made sense that just this driver was a problem. i thought of opening the laptop and discovered the problem. now am using the usb network adapter it working fine
