  1. Hi,
    I am using a AMDtek AN983 10/100 PCI Adapter LAN card to access my broadband internet.The OS on my PC is Windows XP professional SP2. Whenever I restart my PC the LAN card is not detected. It is detected only when I turn off the power and start the PC all over again. The driver seems to be installed properly cuz when I turn on the PC all over again the LAN card is detected and the internet is fine. The problem arises when I restart my PC only.Can somebody help me out??

    Looks like your PC performs a soft reset and your NIC can't handle it. Check the BIOS setup for something that would always force a full hardware reset.

    Tried everything you told.Still the problem persists. Actually I downloaded Windows XP SP2 recently.Before installing SP2 evrything was fine.This problem seems to have started after installing SP2.
