Hi, I want to ask you guys for help with a strange problem I have. I have got an intel pro network card which is an onboard lan as i believe. I installed several drivers to try and solve the problem both from the original manufacturing and the newest ones from windows update and intel's website. Now the problem is that my network card is coded 'intel (r) 82579LM' on my com, which is incorrect. The actual one should be 82579V. Sometimes my com recognizes it correctly after i pull the cables out of the hdd and back in, but after a restart, it goes back to recognizing the wrong chip! I want to know what is the exact problem. Can anyone help me? I'm real desperate. Also, is there any software to help regulate external harddisks? I have the hdd well connected (can hear the sound) but i don't know how to configure it in bios. It doesn't recognize it in windows (there's no trace of its existence). Thanks!!
