The specs for my computer are:

Fatal1ty AN9 motherboard
1 gig ram
2.2 dual core athlon 64 processor
7300gs geforce 256mb nvidia.

I recently formatted my computer and reinstalled windows onto the computer, and now when i try to go on the internet it doesnt even recognize that i have any internet plugged in or devices for the internet to be plugged into.

I installed the abit nforce chipset drivers from the CD i got with the computer and i have tried installing other nforce drivers instead but i'm getting nowhere with the computer recognizing i have ethernet adapters. My computer has two! bloody nora.

anyways i was just wondering if anyone has any ideas how i can get my computer to recognise these, i have tried a lot of things but it's not even showing my adapter under the network adapters or any tab in Device Manager. I am at a loss:<

Please help, Thanks. Jimbob

Well, you're at the right place. Are you sure the NIC's are enabled in the BIOS? Once you load the chipset drivers, they should show up in device manager.

My Fatal1ty MB only has one NIC, did I get cheated? ;)

lol :) thanks for your suggestion, you see i never disabled them so i never thought they would be disabled, but that was the problem, without your answer i would be racking my brains for hours but it was so simple, thankyou very much, had trouble all day with my computer because the mouse and keyboard stopped working, and now it's back up and running at full power once again HURRAY!
