I am comming from this topic.
http://www.geekstogo...ct-t195906.html




Summary:
My network card seems to be damaged, because whenever I restart my computer, my internet goes away, and I have to diable and enable the network for like, 2 minutes, then wait for about 20 minutes, until it comes back on.

I guess I need to get a new network card, but I don't see why it would connect later on.

Mobo: MSI MS-7260 1.0

I was trying to figure out where I could put the new card, but I can't seem to find a place. There is this huge black thing in the way, maybe it's under that?
It looks like my network card is built into my mobo.


No idea, need some help here :)


Big blocking thing

The network card is onboard.
What is that big black thing? Is it some sort of extra cooling device? Does it come away or fold up or something?
To put a new card in that's going to have to come out anyway.

Well I tried taking it out with the screws and stuff, but once I took away all the visable screws, it wouldn't come out all the way. So not sure about that.
Would I be able to add a new card?

Should be able to add a new card but you'll need to figure out how to remove whatever that strange thing is. The PCI slots are underneath it.

Okay check it out, I got the black barrier out finally (It's a vent for my CPU)
I got in and looked around where my internet ports are and found no card.

I took several pictures, so check them out.
The green highlights are either where the internet port is, or where there might be a possiability.
