  1. I have an EMachine T3256 and I recently reformatted my HDD. Well I posted earlier with a probklem but is now solved with the recovery cd. But when i try to install my ethernet drivers, under every icon it says nvenet, and nvuenet. There is no setup or anything and when I click on the icons, an nVidia uninstall utility pops up. I dont know what is going on. And I have dial up right now but we will be getting cable in a couple of weeks so I really need this ethernet. Thanks
    BTW my ethernet is in the mobo it isnt a card.

    go to the device mgr
    select the network devices
    uninstall whatever shows up

    reboot the machine, it should reinstall the appropriate driver

    Yes it would be under the Network adapters under the device manager. That wouldn't make sense not to have NIC drivers on your computer especially if its somewhat new. It's not going to be called ethernet driver. They are generally called NICs or network adapters. If the e-machine came with a drivers installation cd you can usually look around for the network adapter drivers.

    I found an Ethernet driver for my T3985 eMachine on:

    http://www.emachine-upgraders.info/

    Site is easy to use. Enter your machine model and follow the prompts. Seems all drivers for eMachines are there.

    Good luck
