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

Try this driver: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/df-support/8659/eng/LAN_ALLOS_11.2_PV_TL3_132319_FULL.EXE


If that one dose not work then try this one from intel for windows media center: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=998&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Media+Center+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=88&submit=Go%21

or this one for windows xp: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=998&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
