  1. Hello,

    Today I reformatted my computer about and hour and a half ago, and I'm already having my first problem. My Ethernet card on my PC is no longer working properly, so I can no longer create a connection to the Internet V.I.A. Network Places. Anyways, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling a piece of hardware from Device Manager known as Ethernet Controller. So far, it still will not work. If anyone can please provide any suggestions or answers to help me get this problem fixed, I would much appreciate it.

    Thanks again,

    I hate it when this happens- and sometimes it will be the same setup but a differn't fix so, I need to ask you something... In the device manager do you have a yellow "!" next to your device????? Or does it say in your task bar "a network cable is unplugged"
