    I have recently formatted my PC and reinstalled Windows XP S3. I also installed all the drivers that came with the various hardware. However, windows cannot detect my network device. (Marvell Yukon 8E8001) I tried installing the drivers manually, but still nothing shows up under Device Manager. The network lights on the back of the PC doesn't light up, it's as if the device is completely missing. I don't understand how it is possible for a network device to just disappear. Can anyone please help me?

    Can you enter the BIOS settings (F2, F12 or DEL key) upon booting and check the BIOS menus for LAN Card/Ethernet Adapter to ensure it is not DISABLED?

    Is your PC a recognised brand like Dell, HP etc etc. As getting the Marvell Yukon 8E8001 XP driver from them is usually the most reliable source?
