I have installed a new ethernet card into my computer. When windows XP loads it detects this new hardware but calls it a "Multimeadia Audio Controller", and it cant find any drivers to run this device.

Why does it not recognise it as the ethernet card, is it the bios settings? What can I do to fix this?

Did you get a driver disk with the ethernet card?

If so then uninstall the driver that windows auto-detected and run the setup on your driver disc to install the card properly.

Are you confident that the card is XP compatible? There should be a badge on the box confirming this.

it is probably xp compatible. if no disk go online and download. or go to control panel and add hardware and manual and choose the model from the list and it will use the preinstalled windows drivers.

Hudihoo: I think that A Train is trying to tell us that the default drivers will not work for him for some reason. I was suggesting a possible explanation and solution. Not simply reiterating what we already know about this problem. ie. That the default drivers are not working

A Train: Can you tell us what make and model of Ethernet card you have and then we can help track down the correct driver for you.

Can you get back to us and let us know if you need more help or if your problem has been solved, please.
