Do you have a surge protector connected to the system?
Have you tried to go into Device Manager and see if the card is detected?
Is it onboard or a add-on card?
Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation marks or Red X's
In your next reply please include those results

Uninstall the Realtek Nic and then reboot.
Let windows reinstall the driver from scratch.
The other thing you can try is to go into the Bios and check the Advanced or Integrated area and make sure the onboard nic or lan card is enabled.
Make sure to Save and Exit by clicking F10 and then Y to verify.
Let me know how this works

Go back into BIOS and disable the first one and enable the second. Save and exit and when windows restarts try the new connection and see if that works.

Is everything now working correctly for you?
Is the second port working as well as the first one did?

This allows the system to be booted from a lan and has nothing to do with enabling the onboard nic card.
In the BIOS, what about "Onboard LAN Boot ROM"?

Please do not request help inside another members topic, your issue may appear the same but be totally unconnected in any way and so you are best to start your own topic.
It is important that your computer is confirmed as being clean of malware infection so I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.
If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, please start your own topic and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
1: Do not create a topic on the malware forum unless you have a malware issue that you cannot resolve yourself.
3: As the Malware Techs are extremely busy you may not receive an instant reply, if you have waited for three days then post in the Waiting Room http://www.geekstogo...e-waiting-room/ be sure to identify the issue as malware related and provide a link to your malware topic.
