    Hello, recently I picked up a computer off a mate that wasn't being used, I formatted it, he didn't give me the motherboard CD, I'm trying to find the ethernet controller driver for the motherboard, it's a MSI MS-7143 ver1 motherboard, I've looked everywhere for the driver and can't seem to find it!

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    right click on the device with a yellow!

    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4401&CC_020000
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4401&CC_0200

    They're the hardware IDs.

    Looked up the device ID and it came up with a broadcom ethernet controller?
