I have just had to restore an hp desktop as it crashed and burned. This computer was on a network and worked fine but now says there is no ethernet controller driver installed and it wont recognize our network. I have no clue what to do and any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks

My SiS 900 Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adaptor has apparently failed on my HP/Compaq. What options do I have? Can I get an ethernet card or should I junk the computer?

I didn't say that in the last one BECAUSE I JUST GOT IT AND PUT IT IN YESTERDAY. Had to order it and we were out of town. You don't have to answer is you don't want to - your choice. I have given you all the information I have. Yes, I have installed the drivers. We are on an ethernet system - fiber. Not dsl. We are conneceted via a router ONLY because we have a Linksys wiresless router. My laptop (wireless) works just fine. My Desktop does NOT. That is the problem. i.e. the computer is NOT connecting to the ISP. Therefore the new card. It was the cheapest scanerio. I have done everthing from having the phone lines, fiber, checked. NO PROBLEMS. I have contacted the provider and they say its the computer. NOW WHAT????? I say its them.

ok,try this to see if its conecting go to start run ,type in cmd,then "ping www.google.com" ,,with out the quotes,there is a space between ping and www. hit enter,
this will tell if its connecting ,it will show 4 packets sent and should show 4 received, none lost .
i do use this program to reset all networking settings .very safe to use .

Short of that you could have spyware/trojans causing you problem .i aggree with isp it is most likely your computer

ISP furnishes a program that does all the pinging for you. Google failed. I will check my spyware protection.
