so here i am going to be as detailed as possible, my gfs computer crashed so i bought her a new hardrive, i formatted it and installed windows, however i did not have an enthrenet cable plugged in from the router, i just dont know if that is going to make a difference or not here later on, anyways, windows installed great and everything, its boots up wonderfully but i cannot connect to the internet, so that pretty much sucks, i checked all the settings and attempted to connect to the network and nothing worked at all, all the other comps on the network are working great with the internet, so i have no clue what to do, under device manager the ethernet adapter does have the yellow exclamation mark next to it, so i decided to reinstall those drivers right? but no!! you have to be connected to the internet to get the stupid drivers, so thats great, so i think maybe it had to do with the fact of not having the ethernet cable attached to the comp when the comp was installing windows, yes no? anyways i reformatted the drive again and am installing windows with the cable attached. am i doing anything wrong? please help me!!
