PCI Ethernet Controller help please.

Each time I start up my pc it keeps trying to install the device driver for the pci ethernet controller. How do I stop it, I cant seem to find any disk with this on it?

Do you have a network (ethernet) card?

Righ click My Computer, select Properties; Device Manager and come back and tell us if you have any yellow exclamation marks.

You could try a complete reinstall of the device which may clear the problem.

To do this, open up Other Devices, Right Click the device with the mark and delete it. Now shutdown Windows to a COLD boot (power off) and let Windows find the device again. It may now find the appropriate drivers and solve the problem, or the worst way, you will end up with the same situation as you have now.

Try and see. If you still have the same problem, come back and we will investigate further.

I have done what you said a few time and I end up as I am now.

What add on cards do you have in your machine?

I don't think I have any
