Reformatted my PC, ran into a (big) problem

#1 Posted by MethodMan008 (824 posts) -

So... I found my copy of Windows 7 Professional and figured I'd reformat the gaming PC I just bought.. But I did that and now when I try to get on, I can't get online, saying windows cannot find network drivers..

I assume the problem there is I need to redownload my motherboard drivers on a new PC..

That is the motherboard I have.. What drivers do I need to download to get my PC working back fine?

I'm pretty much a PC noob so I'm not really sure...

Big thanks for the help duders, I messed up! :'(

No, I don't think you messed up. I think you're right in your assumption, you need your motherboards drivers since the network chip is on there.

I believe that what you're looking for is the one in the LAN menu.

Also, you should have your drivers disc somewhere. Easiest thing for you would be to just to install everything on it.

Download the driver listed under LAN on a thumb drive. Transfer it to your formatted PC. Install the driver. You now have internet and a lot more to download. :)

I bought it from the pawn shop I work at so it didn't come with any of those discs. :(

Luckily I have a crappy PC at home that still works so I'm hoping I'll download that LAN driver and it will fix my problems.

@Barrock: Thanks duder!

And after getting the LAN drivers, it should be pretty easy to get all of the other drivers. Not a really big problem at all.
