Hello, i just bought and installed the Zotac geforce gtx 560 graphics card and after the restart my computer will not recognize my ethernet cable at all. it says it is not plugged in.
i have tried to "ipconfig.exe/release and renew" and it says there is not ethernet plugged in. i have checked the three cables i have used and they are in perfect condition. a friend suggested that it could be cause if the hdmi 1.4a being used as ethernet as well but i am only using dvi.
so i was wondering if someone could help me out?
id like to add my modem and router are working fine i can use my wifi and everything.
I have never seen a computer act this way. A video card shouldn't effect your network. I don't have a solution for you, but I would start by checking the device manager and see if it shows your network adapter as being ok. Perhaps a reinstall of the network driver will fix it.
