Reloaded friends HP a305w (Walmart Special/TriGem Imperial GL VE MB) that was hosed. NIC dead when I started. System will not recognize integrated NIC. Does not appear in Device manager at all. Decided to just add a PCI Network Adapter and not worry about it. Disabled on board LAN. Lo and behold, will not recognize any of several NICs I tried in any PCI slot. Also tried modem, not recognized either.
Things I've done so far:
Reloaded WIN XP Pro several times w/ No Service Pack, w/SP1, w/SP2
Removed battery to reset BIOS
Updated MB BIOS
Gone thru BIOS thoroughly
Several Chipset updates (Intel 845 GL Chipset)

Can see Network Adapter when viewing hidden devices, but its typical WAN miniport stuff (Can't remove)

On board Audio and Video Work fine.

Run out of things to try. May be hardware.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

Tried the NIC driver. Loads but finishes with "Can't start the device".

All the evidence points to a dead MB, I think you're beating a dead horse here. :)
