Ethernet Controller Problem





bktz
Hi i have the "HP Media Center m7160n Desktop PC" and currently i just reformatted my system. After i reformatted i tried connecting to the internet and i kept on getting an error. So i went to device manager and noticed that my ethernet controller is not recognized and that the driver needs to be updated. but to do that i need to connect to the internet. So if anyone can help me out with what to do that would be very helpful. (and i bought my system almost 2 years ago so i don't have the recovery disk anymore).
any help that u can offer is appreciated. Thnx in advance.

You'll need to use another PC to download the correct driver. If you have a USB thumb drive, you can copy the driver to the USB drive and then to your media center PC.

Your pc must surely have a virus! I once got that problem! You need to reinstall your OPERATING SYSTEM! Shocked
