Hi all!,

I reinstalled windows on an emachine t3410 with the NVIDIA® nForce™® 410 chipset.

I reinstalled the drivers from emachine's website as well as the ones from the nvidia website, howerver i can't get the ethernet working!.

I go into my network connections and there are no connections. I go under device manager and there are no questions mark, Infact i can't even find the ethernet control on the list!

What do you guys think the problem is and how can i fix it?

Best Regards,
Francisco

You said you downloaded the drivers from emachine's site, are you certain you downloaded and installed the NVIDIA nForce chipset and network drivers for FIC K8MC51G motherboard? Maybe download them again and reinstall -- link.

I'm not sure what it could be.

Go to Start | Run | type: msinfo32
and open Components and look under Network | Adapter. If it's missing a driver, or has a hardware issue, it should indicate here.

Hello all,

Thanks for all your help! After a short talk to my girlfriend today (and giving her a spare tower i had around) she explained that her internet only worked if she connected the modem via USB. My idea is that the NIC card is damaged if so i have a spare around so i will put that in there and report back! thanks for the replies once again!

Best Regards,
Francisco

Thanks for the link above, it was extremely helpful. I was having the same problem with the Network Adt. not being listed so i went ahead and gave a call to Emachines. WEll they went on to tell me the computer i was working on had no warrenty and i would need to pay 59.99 for 30 mins 99.99 for 60 mins and i could go ahead and a year membership for 199.99. Are you kidding , all i wanted to know is where to find the drivers, My friend whom i was fixing it for had already given them the buisness. Anyways again thanks a ton for the link, the computer is all back up and running like brand new.
