'm not entirely sure where to post this problem, but I figure this will work.

I recently moved into college and wanted to connect to the internet. To do so, I need to have an ethernet card installed on my computer. Having connected through wireless networks previously, I had to purchase a new PCI Ethernet Adapter card.

I built my PC a while back and it hasn't failed me until now. I have an ASUS P4P800-E with an Intel Pentium 4, 3GHz, and 1GB of RAM.

I tried to install the card, and I followed the directions. When I thought the card was installed, it didn't work. Under device manager, the card was showing but had an exclamation point next to it, and it said, "The device cannot start. (Code 10)". Under device manager, there are also two yellow question marks for both "Ethernet Controller" and "RAID Controller". I don't know what either of those means, as I have never had to worry about them in the past.

I tooled around with the card, and went back, returned the card, and bought a new one. I tryed to install it again, and got the same problem. I've put the cards in number of different PCI slots, to no avail. I was hoping if any of you could help. I have included some screen shots for refrence.

Hi Patrick Oh, Welcome to Geeks2Go!! You don't need to purchase a new network card for your PC, your motherboard has a built in network card. That is the ethernet controller under Other devices. You should have a CD that came with your motherboard with the drivers for the ethernet card. If not here are the drivers for your ethernet card.

Click on Start then Run then type in cmd then type in the command prompt window ipconfig /all . Post back with the IP address you get.

Do you still have the wireless card in there? If so try to disable it if you are not planning on using it for a while. If not I would try to reboot your computer and then try the internet again.
