Which drivers because I see 3 different nic drivers. Also did you install the chipset driver first before any other driver?

No, I tried with audio driver first but I also installed Intel Chipset support for Microsoft Windows...

OK something is not right because it has to be one of the 3 that was originally installed on your system.
Go to Device manager and right click on each of the yellow exclamation marked entries and then delete or uninstall it. Reboot and see if windows will find them then since you have both of the drivers now installed.

I installed this modem driver too but nothing. I believe this is happening because of another windows installation or sth doesn't work anymore.

OK well it should have no bearing but we can get rid of it to make sure. First open Windows Explorer and find the Windows.old folder. Delete it and then do the following.




Please do the following in the exact steps. Failure to do so could make the boot.ini damaged and cause unstable or unusable results with your system.:

Save a Backup Copy of Boot.ini

1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl and then click OK.
2. Click on the Advanced tab, and then click Settings
3. In the Startup and Recovery area at the bottom click Settings.
4. Under System Startup click Edit. This opens the Boot.ini file in Notepad ready for editing.
5. In Notepad, click File on the Menu bar, and then click Save As.
6. First in here change the location in the top white drop down box to Desktop. Then in the file name change to Boot.old and save as Text Document(*.txt) and save it to your Desktop and then click Save



Please copy and paste all the lines from your Boot.ini file in your next reply.


Now you can repeat the steps to get back to step Number 4
I will reply with the Fix to do. Once the fix has been applied then Save and Close the file.
Reboot and let me know if this takes care of your problem

Go to Start then to Run.
Type in explorer.exe and click Enter
This should open the Windows Explorer and scroll down on the left window pane till you find the folder named Windows.old
