Preferred Solution: Trouble with Ethernet Controller

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I am having a bit of a complication with my recent format on my Compaq Presario 6025RSH. Recently due to a severe virus attack I was forced to do a reformat using XP pro. Naturally as we know drivers are missing. Now in Jan I had to do this same thing, and the driver problem was easily solved through the compaq support site. However this time around I have went to the site, and I can not seem to find the driver download any where. Once more this is in response to my missing ethernet controller. I have googled my issue and to my surprise I have found next to zip about my problem. Can any one help? Please? before I pull my hair out?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

I found all the drivers at the Gigabyte website for Windows 7 64 bit including the ethernet controller. If you have access to another machine you could copy any drivers you need onto a USB flash drive then copy them to your machine.

After computer crashed, I ran WinXP reinstall CD. Of course, I lost everything that was previously loaded. I'm going again but have no sound. In Device Manager under Other Devices, Ethernet Controller & Multimedia Audio Controller are yellow question marks. I have tried the Resource CD, Dell Support/Downloads, everything I can think of and nothing is working. I am connected to the internet through the USB because the tech says I need a new ethernet card and have to connect right now through the USB. I'm lost at this point.

A:SM Bus Controller, Ethernet Controller, and Coprocessor Problems

Sorry couldn't figure out how to edit to avoid double posting*

I have solved 2 of the 3 issues after spending about 10 hours of my day on them. I have fixed both the Coprocessor as well as the Ethernet Controller issue. Turns out they were just being rolled back with the load last working settings along with the SM Bus Controller which was the only one really having a problem. Still though, after uninstalling reinstalling disabling and so on and so forth, the SM Bus Controller continues to be a thorn in my side. I have disabled it to get rid of the annoying pop up every time the computer restarts (I figured this is ok b/c according to the device manager the device is inactive anyway so why not?).

Thanks again for any help.

Hi guys,

I have a slight problem with one of the PC's..

I reinstalled Windows and everything seems okay except for Two problems..

There is a yellow question mark next to my Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller in Device Manager.

I'm not exactly sure how I find out what Ethernet Controller or SM Bus Controller I use to go and download the drivers.

Here are my computer specs:

A:Missing Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller

Assuming you are using the ethernet port on the motherboard (not a separate card) you need to get the manufacturer and model number from the mb itself and go to their site to get the drivers for that and the SM bus controller. You don't mention the brand/model of the mb in your post - Micro ATX is a size specification, not mfr.

I recently reinstalled Windows XP on my Dell Dimension 4550. I have all the necessary CDs and put in the Dell Resource CD. It has a few drivers but none of them seem to fix the problem I'm having with "other devices" in "device manager." Under other devices, there are yellow question marks next to "Ethernet Controller" and "SM Bus Controller." I've gone to the Dell Web site to try to download drivers but I'm lost and not sure where to turn. The device status for both says: The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28) To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Device.

Hi there,

First I would right click and uninstall it and then right click on your computer name at the top and choose to add hardware. It may be able to install the ethernet controller at that point. If you have the CD that came with your computer that have drivers on it, then it may want that.

See this article:

You may have to go to Dell and download some drivers. If you can't do it on the computer in question, then you'll have to use another and then put the drivers onto CD....

I'm in the process of a clean install of XP Pro on a HP 725n. I had several conflicts in the device manager and was able to clear all except the "ethernet controller." I installed the chipset drivers (via km400) which cleared the "sm bus controller" issue, but cannot find the driver to clear this on-board ethernet issue. It was working before the clean install, and I have the dude bringing me the set of recovery disk that he made when the unit was new. Maybe I'll find the driver on one of these disk. I know that I can add an ethernet card to one of the empty pci slots, but really would like to fix the on-board one. This is the first time in a while that I've been "stumped," and would appreciate any help to salvage my ego and clear my mind.

I have an old gateway e-4000 that I just reinstalled windows xp to. Now after re-installing the operating system I am missing a few drivers. The ethernet controller being the most important. I went to the gateway site and they completely skip the e-4000. Can anybody send a link to the driver if possible? I got it before but then lost the disc I put it on...

A:Ethernet Controller

MPCDrivers has most (If not all drivers) for the E4000 model.

Don't worry, it's a legit site, a lot of people use them for getting legacy/EOL'd computer drivers. I read somewhere they have the original restore discs available as well, which should, itself, contain every driver for the computer.

First thing you can try is to remove/uninstall the Ethernet controller from Device Manager and reboot. On reboot Windows should redetect it and hopefully reinstall the drivers. If it doesn't then you'll need to download the driver and install them. If you need help with that we will need to know a lot more. For example the model number of the EVO, the make of the ethernet card if seperate, and the Windows version.

3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?
4. should be enabled and working properly.
5. If error code,what is it ?

Also,in the lan adapter driver section,tell us the driver description and location.

Hello Pyrosx1:

Try going here to download the drivers you need:
Relevancy 52.89%

I am operating under Win98se. In Device Manager under Other Devices: Ethernet Controller, Multimedia Audio Device and System Management Bus have Yellow exclamation marks. It says that the drivers need to be installed. Tried to reinstall the drivers but they can't be found. USB Root Hub also has yellow exclamation mark. Have also tried to install the drivers there.
Have tried to find the manufacturer name with no luck. Can't use PC Wizard, it locks up my computer or shuts it down. Is there a way to find out the manufacturers name on these items so that I can install the drivers.
Help is really appreciated. Have been working on this for the last two days.

With all those devices without the correct drivers it sounds to me that the system has just been reformatted and reloaded.

Since this is a custom system you will have to open the system and get the motherboard ID number which is printed on it somewhere.
We know it is a Biostar but we need to know exactly which motherboard.
Did a motherboard cd come with the system?

I assume that the network card is integrated as well.
If there are any devices that are not integrated into the motherboard please let us know.

You will need to install the corect Belkin Drivers for the network card - get them from Belkin if you don't have the right CD.

I downloaded this program however I now have no idea what to do with it. Noone is answering me on that forum so I have come here for a release from the stress!

Please help if you think you can guys and gals



A:Ethernet Controller

Everest is a program that shows all the components that make up your machine including the video card, audio, motherboard, what memory you have installed, in fact just about everything you need to know about your computer.

When you first bring up the program look down the left hand column then click on Network and that will tell you just what you have along with your IP address and what adaptor you are using with links to the manufacturers site.

Hope that helps you, if you need any more info just come back and someone will be able to help.

A:Ethernet Controller Missing

I'd suggest downloading/installing the drivers for the Intel NIC (from the HP drivers site).

You don't tell us what is installed on this I don't think you have a gigabit NIC. From what I see, that would be a PCI-e connection for that, while I suspect that you just have the normal onboard ethernet connection.

Unless you know for sure that you have a gigabit ethernet connection, you should not assume it where options are available.

I reinstalled windows 7, but after that I can't get my internet going, in device manager the ethernet controller and pci simple communications controller are yellowed out, i've tried updating, but keeps saying drivers can not be found.
Can anyone help me please....

A:ethernet controller driver

There was no system specs posted, but most systems require motherboard chipset drivers be installed BEFORE installing device drivers. The chipset drivers define all the devices on or attached to the motherboard and if they are not installed many devices will not install.

Sirs.. i hav a very terrible problem with my PC , i request immediate assistance.
i have dell optiplex GX280 and the Ethernet Controller in it is Broadcom NetXtreme 57XX Gigabit Controller
the mother board is Intel 915 G ...

Now the problem is that i was merging partitions of my hard drive.. so i lost the driver files, installed in partition D:\ ..
and the controller displayed the code 39 error :" the device cannot start because its drivers are missing or corrupt"

now when i tired to reinstall the drivers.. the device would not recognise them..
upon checking the Device manager after install , the code 39 error was still there..
so i cant quite decide what to do..

if u think there are any remains of the deleted files remaining , please do suggest a solution
i tried the Dell Website and even the Broadcom website for driver downloads.. but the situation remains the same .. please help!

A:Ethernet Controller goes missing

1. on the device manage. delete theethernet controller with an exclamation point in it. then do a refresh... 2. same as 1 except that you wont refresh but instead run the setup file for the ethernet controller...

Heya all, new here and sorry if i place this post in wrong category.

Well i have a Notbook. LG it says W1-D2RLV as model number.

Well why i post here is becuse i can't find any Ethernet controller Drivers. I had Win XP before and I had no problem with internet then. So my question is where and how can I find drives?

I have a Wireless notebook but the sad thing is I don't have a Wireless connection.

Welcome to the forums Mewphisto
Can you show us what the Network adapters tab in SIW is showing?
Also, W1-D2RLV doesn't seem to be the model of your computer, what does the case say?

A:Ethernet controller problem

Have you tried going to the website of the mfr of who makes your computer such as dell, hp, lenovo, etc?in most cases it will say support then drivers and downloads listed for your model of computer. ethernet drivers are usually listed under network or communications.then you see if theres drivers listed for the operating system you have such as xp, vista, or windows 7.or have you gone to the device mgr and is there any yellow question marks? if so hit update drivers and sometimes it will find the driver for you. you might have to go on another computer to get the drivers if you have no internet connection at all.

My computer is connected w/ a LAN connection. The internet worked before, but after I installed a video card, the internet stopped working, and neither can I connect to the other computer. When I start windows it brings up a window to install the driver for the Ethernet controller. And it brings another window saying to install a vga driver for my video card. That doesn’t make any sense, because I installed the driver for the video card w/ the ati cd for the video card. Please help…


A:Ethernet controller driver???

We will need some more info...

Operating system, did you replace a video card, added one where you have on-board video card, did the computer recognize the card????
