    I've recently installed my Windows 7 64-Bit, all drivers were OK, but there's one problem - my Realtek Ethernet driver installs fail. I searched all over google for drivers, but when I try to install them I get either "This program is not designed for your version of Windows" or program install errors. Any help? I have an ASUSTeK P8H77-M LE (LGA1155) motherboard and an Intel Core i3 2125 processor.

    Did you install the chipset/mb drivers first?

    That motherboard appears to have a Realtek RTL8111F gigabit controller.

    Driver version 7.67.1226.2012 for Windows 7(32-bit and 64-bit) is available here.

    Select the link for the software, then select the Windows 7 auto installation program link, then select a download location.

    It's in .zip format, so you'll need to extract its contents into an empty folder, then run the setup.exe file.

    OK, when you do an install of windows, you generally install in the following order;

    1 Install windows
    2 Update to latest service pack
    3 Install chipset/mb drivers
    4 Install sound, nic, drivers as necessary
    5 Install video driver

    If all is well, then activate windows and make a backup image of your system drive. Once done with those tasks, go to windows update and install ALL critical updates. Repeat until there are no more critical updates.

    If you do not install the chipset drivers first, then the other drivers [sound, nic, video, etc] cannot configure themselves correctly.
