    Well, that about sums it up.

    I need a driver for a DLink DFE-530TX Network Card, for Windows XP.

    I know there is one, somewhere, because this card was working before the format and reinstall of XP.

    And I tried teh DFE-530TX+ drivers, and those don't seem to work.

    So a little help would be great :)

    Thanks,
    --Gibbs

    THis is the download page but there is a 530TX and a 530TX+ do you know which yours is ? Otherwise I would have given you the exact download page for your particular network card. You will have to click on your proper information yourself this way.

    Hmm I just clicked on the XP drivers and it seems to think windows XP should have drivers and load them automatically. Are you sure the nic card is firmly in its slot? You could always try removing it from device manager and rebooting the computer and seeing if it will find it then .

    Yep, I allready removed and reconnected it, it sees it, just doesn't load it's drivers.

    I'm sure it's just a TX, not a TX+

    OH OH sorry I just read you had tried to load the TX drivers .. am just waking up and the eyes aren't quite with it yet. The last time this happened to me the card was toast. I hope that isn't your case. If it was my computer I would take the thing out and reseat it just to be sure first .. and then see if it recognizes it and /or change the pci slot that it is in ............ again just in case.

    sigh, I tried removing it from device manager, shut down, pulled and reseated it, and restarted to no avail.

    It sees that it's a NIC, but with the yellow question mark, meaning it needs drivers, I try installing them and it doesn't work :mad:

    Something about can not initialize card code (10) (I can't remember the exact message and I'm not with that PC at the moment)

    Sounds like it could be fried. If it is, it wont cost much to replace. Network cards are dirt cheep nowadays.

    That's odd though, because it was working before I reinstalled XP, and I did nothing that should/could have fried it...

    Are there any other devices listed under other or unsupported devices?

    Nope, everything else was detected properly, and it's listed under the network devices section (or whatever it's called) in the device manager...

    Have you also tried another PCI slot? If it is next to an AGP slot it will occaisionally not work. Have you moved other cards around before the OS install? Does the BIOS detect an ethernet adapter at bootup?

    I'll try moving it to a new slot when I get a chance later today, and no, it's nowhere near the AGP slot, it's in the last (second last maybe) PCI slot away from the AGP slot.

    I don't recall if the BIOS detected the NIC or not...I think it did, but I'm not sure.

    The hell with it.

    I reseated it in a new slot, it recognizes that it's an ethernet adapter, but won't install the drivers for it, I select the DLink 530TX drivers from the list (tried both rev A & B) and neither worked, it kept saying it couldn't initialize the network card or something like that.

    So I yanked it and tossed in a different NIC. I'm not about to piss around with it. For a cheap $10 card, why spend an hour trying to get it to work, my time is more costly than a new card at those prices.
