HELP! ASUS A7N8X-E DELUXE Ethernet problems

By virulent ยท 5 replies
Jun 18, 2005
  1. Hello, I installed xp home a while back and had no problems with my build in ethernet card on my mobo. I recently reformmated and put windows 98 SE on and installed all the drivers from the mobo disk. I plugged in my cord into my ethernet and nothing happened at all. I couldn't get online at all. I do although have a bunch of unknown devices when i boot up my computer.

    Unknown Devices:

    PCI System Management Bus
    PCI Universal Serial Bus
    PCI Ethernet Controller
    PCI Multimedia Audio Device
    PCI Communication Device
    PCI Raid Controller

    I searched for hours on google trying to find drivers or whatever is needed for these.. and I can't find anything at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go to http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us input your mobo model into the model search, and then in the catagory search click drivers. When the drivers page appears click on the drivers tab. Make sure you only download drivers that are Windows 98 compatible.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    nvidia nforce device drivers and acpi

    if you can't install nvidia nforce drivers, probably your settings in the acpi bios section or in the pci irq section are wrong. if acpi is disabled, you >>cannot install correctly<< nvidia drivers and other device drivers.
    if you have acpi disabled, enable it in bios, but you have to reinstall windows at all!
    i hope this will help you!
    bye bye
