    If you're not positive the model number is p6-2026, advise us what the product number(P/N) and/or model number(M/N) on the sticker is so the model number can be confirmed.

    That model number does not show a Foxconn motherboard.

    The HP Pavilion p6-2026 desktop shows it having a Pegatron IPISB-CU (HP Name: Carmel2) motherboard.

    It came with Windows 7 SP1(64-bit) pre-installed. How did you reformat it? If you used the built-in system recovery partition or used a system recovery disc kit, it should've reloaded it back to its original factory condition.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Double-click those question marked( ? ) entries in the Device Manager - which will open their properties window.

    Click the "Details" tab, then select "Hardware Id".

    You should see one or more strings that have VEN_####&DEV_#### as part of the string.

    Advise what the numbers and letters are that follow VEN_ and DEV_

    Those vendor and device codes will identify those devices, so be careful not to make any typos.

    You're right, it's not an p6-2026, and I bought this Windows disc. Maybe it didnt install the network adapters?
    - This is my computer: p6-2052sc
    I get this: Plug an Ethernet cable into this computer
    when I run the Windows Network Diagnostics (ND).
    Before the reformat it was working 100%

    Here is the support site for the HP Pavilion p6-2052sc desktop.

    According to its product specifications section, it has a Foxconn H-CUPERTINO2-H61-uA TX motherboard and came with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1(64-bit) pre-installed.

    I don't understand why you bought a Windows disc for it. It should have a built-in system recovery partition so you can revert it back to its original factory condition. Read here.
