Can't install NIC card.

  1. Can't install NIC card.

    I'm running Win XP and I have a PCI Belkin NIC card that I want to install.

    I have installed it into different slots but Windows won't recognize it as "New Hardware".

    It has a yellow explanation mark in the Device Manager but won't let me update driver.

    I have also tried to other cards with the same results.

    I have gone into the "Setup" but don't see anything to "tweak".

    Any ideas?

    Also here is a message on the Device Mgr.

    The "Device status says: "The device is not configured correctly.
    (Code 1)
    To reinstall drivers for this device click "Reinstall Drivers.

    That might imply thsat there is some sort of driver installed there that shouldn't be there. Could it be a previous instance of the driver from where you've been trying to install it~?

    Could be. How would I find out or uninstall the driver?

    Also, don't forget I can't get to "browse" or anything under the Device Mgr.
