okay i just reinstalled windows on my computer, i did the worst thing i have done yet. java script:emoticon(':tazz:') i was frustrated that the flopy disc that came with the ethernet pci card wasn't working in my computer. so i just took one of the drivers from the dlink catagory that was almost the same (the name of the driver is on the flopy too so i don't know that, it has always worked before.) first i have no idea how too unistall the driver i designated for the pci card(which was the wrong one) and second i need to find out what model i have.

any help would be appreciated ;)

right click my computer > manage > device manager.. look for the nic card and either update the driver from the disk....or uninstall it....this location should also tell you what kind of card it is
