Network Adapter Working But Does Not Appear In Device Manager?

Oct 9, 2005

Since upgrading to Windows XP Service Pack 2, my network adapter (a 3Com 3C905-TX-M)does not appear in Device Manager and I therefore can't get this computer to appear on my home network. The network adapter is still working because that's how I connect to the Internet, via LAN to a router then cable broadband,and IPCONFIG gives valid results including the correct IP address from the router via DHCP.I installed a clean copy of XP Home on a spare hard disk. The network adapter appeared in Device Manager and the computer appeared on the network. I then upgraded to SP2 and the network adapter disappeared from Device Manager and the computer no longer appears on the network.


Installing Network Adapter - Name In Use As Device Name Or Service Name?

Jul 15, 2005

Im trying to install a LinkSys network card, and it doesn't work after I do. When I try to reinstall in device manager, the error I get is "name is already in use as either a device name or service name"I've tried all the obvious... uninstall, reinstall stuff. I know I have to play with the registry to fix this but I dont know where to start. Can anyone help me, because as of now, my mother's computer doesn't get the internet!

Bizarre Network Adapter / No Icons In The Network Communications

Sep 16, 2005

My network adapter does not appear in Device Manager, until I "Show hidden devices". And then it appears as a "Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC", whereas I actually have a D-Link DFE-538TX 10/100 adapter. Furthermore, I get no icons (at all) in the Network Communications window. So if I want to change any settings of my LAN, for example, I can't, because I can't select the LAN icon or right-click on it. The LAN is working though. The current driver for the Realtek adapter which is listed is a MS driver.

Audio Device Not Found / Listed In Device Manager

Aug 4, 2010

I had some trouble last night and today with getting rid of a virus. Now that it is gone, I am having sound problems (maybe related, maybe not). This morning, when I opened iTunes I got a message that there was no audio device detected. After trying several things, I rebooted. Magically, I could play music again. However, a short while later, I again got an error message telling me that there is no audio device found, even though it shows up in Device Manager as working properly. The problem goes away for a short time after I reboot, but returns. It is Realtek AC 97. Why won't my computer keep recognizing it? (It tried going to Realtek's site to download an update. It has updates for Windows 98, 95, etc., but not for XP. Or at least I couldn't find it.)

Mystery PCI Input Device In Device Manager

Aug 31, 2005

I had this problem last time when I fresh installed Windows XP Pro on my computer. I don't know the time, but it happens at least 30 days after I reinstall the OS and software. Today, my computer prompted me to install drivers for a PCI Input Device, but I haven't installed any new hardware for months. Basically, I haven't touched the inside of my computer for that long. So why is Device Manager prompting me to install this mystery device? Hardware ID shows that it is from vendor 1102, which is Creative, and I have an Audigy 1. Also, my FireWire port is Code 10, the device cannot start. So I'm thinking the mystery device is the same firewire port. But why show up as a separate device? I tried removing the devices and restarting the computer, but they return to haunt me again. The device properties for the PCI Input Device says PCI SLOT 7, AND I DONT HAVE A 7th slot! Can someone help me, please? Device manager shows my 1394 Net Adapter with a yellow exclamation, and it has code 10, device cannot start. There is an unknown device, the PCI Input Device, which doesn't allow me to install any drivers for it, yet it has the creative Vendor ID 1102. It shows itself as being PCI Slot 7.

Cannot Uninstall Network Adapter

Feb 18, 2005

Following overactive uninstallation of an ip filtering utility, my network adapter has stopped functioning. (Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller, XP pro sp1)
I strongly suspect serious registry damage, but none of the three highly rated registry utilities I have used have been able to fix the problem. In Device Manager -> properties, the message is : 'device not configured properly (code 1), reinstall the driver.' Attempting to reinstall the driver gives the following error message: 'An error occurred during installation of the device The system cannot find the file specified'.

Aug 22, 2009

I need to know how to change the name of a Network Adapter, specifically the Hamachi one. When going to Network Connections, under the Hamachi connection it states its Network Adapter name (also shown as this in Device Manager); Hamachi Network InterfaceI need to change Hamachi Network Interface to anything else, other than Hamachi Network Interface, Lets rename it to Local VPN.I have altared all instances of the name Hamachi Network Interface located in the registry (literally searched for it, and replaced all values and names that stated it with Local VPN instead of Hamachi Network Interface), I even changed all instances within the driver itself, reinstalled the driver, and it still would not altar the name to Local VPN.

Network Adapter Conflict

Sep 12, 2009

I have recently acquired a Dell Studio 1555 laptop with the above configuration. My OS(and drivers) were partialy instaled by the seller. Now here is the problem. After I installed the network lan and wireless adapter(using the dell official drivers), I noticed that IE doesn't work. As I'm a Firefox person myself I just let it pass, but then I noticed that other things like the Java Runtime online installer, Yahoo messanger online installer, Blizzard downloader, Yahoo messanger itself(I got the full kit downloaded and installed it), don't work. The message is the similar on all of them: check if your firewall or your internet settings do not forbid access to X. Clearly, the firewall is off and the security settings are checked and shouldn't be a problem. So I got back to the internet explorer, thinking that all these are somehow related. I "used diagnostic tool" then "view log".

Network Adapter Not Recognized

Apr 14, 2008

Had to reformat a drive and reinstall XP Pro on it, but upon reinstallation of XP it refuses to recognize the network adapter. It's been determined that the network adapter is a 3C920B-EMB Integrated Fast Ethernet Controller.Upon downloading drivers for this and attempts to install them, an error of "The device cannot start" occurs.On a separate install of XP on a seperate drive, the network adapter functions greatly. Is there a way to take the registry keys from the one install of XP and somehow...copy them over to the other install of XP? Or, is there a way to get the thing functioning without having to do that?

Task Manager / Device Manager Don't Run

Aug 30, 2005

A friend of mine has a 4 yr. old PC running XP Home with 128Mb of memory. He's had problems with programs aborting recently. I tried to run Device Manager to make sure there were no issues there. It briefly brought the screen up, then it went away. The same thing happened to Task Manager when I tried to see what was running and how much memory was being used. Anybody ever see this behavior before? I might try installing a memory cleaner pgm (ie. Memturbo), but I'm not sure I would even be able to get it to run. The hard drive amd memory seem to have no errors.

USB To RS232 Prolific Adapter -- Device Cannot Start?

Now when I look in Device Manager, there's a "Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port," but it isn't functioning. When I look under properties, the error message says, "This device cannot start.

I've made the rounds of some different forums, but most of the people who have had problems with this adapter seem to have issues when using it with Vista or 7

Unknown PCI Device In Device Manager?

Mar 11, 2006

Last night I installed ATiTool 0.24 over my 0.25 version (stupidly). I also did a BIOS update and installed Cat6.3 and then AVIVO converter. When I rebooted, I had this new PCI device requiring a driver,but it's an unknown device and doing an auto update helped me.I can't get rid of this pesky PCI device (tried uninstalling but Windows detects it again after restart/boot-up). All my stuff is working, so I don't know where this critter came from?

Renaming Device In Device Manager

Aug 3, 2005

Anyone know how I can rename a device in device manager, (or the registry), so it doesn't show #2 after the device.I used the leadtek driver uninstall tool last night. And it removed the drivers I had for this Leadtek Deluxe tuner alright.BUT it also renamed my onboard Gigabit LAN (onboard) to #2 my scanner to #2,
and removed my Nvidia drivers for the video card.And reverted the videocard drivers to MS Nvidia drivers.I managed to fix the scanner entry by uninstalling the drivers, then rebooting and reinstalling the drivers.And I managed to fix the videocard drivers, by reinstalling the Nvidia drivers.So, yup, anyone have any idea how I can change the board LAN, so it doesnt have #2 after it? sing XP Pro SP2

Cannot Find My Documents - Network Adapter

Dec 29, 2007

I have had my Gateway laptop with Windows XP for about 3 years now. For the past year or so, for some reason my Broadcom 802.11g network adapter has been showing up as having a problem, which has meant that have not been able to use the wireless feature of the laptop. I have lived with it until tonight. I tried to fix it by trying to download a new driver, update the driver, restore settings to a previous date, ect. After nothing working, I decided to do a system recovery. When I did this, it gave me 2 options, one with backup and one without. I chose the backup option and it said everything would be saved to a "my backup" folder. I went through the process which took quite some time. It installed windows and I set the computer up. After everything, when I went to the my backup folder, it only has applications, NO DOCUMENTS. I have TONS of pictures and important documents on my computer that I now can not find. I am panicing as I truley hope I do not lose EVERYTHING. Is there any way to get this stuff back? I have done several searches and nothing comes up. Ironically, my wireless adapter is now working, but I would gladly go back to it not working to have all of my pictures back.

Unable To Uninstall Network Adapter (Code 31)

Apr 20, 2004

I have an Intel Network card in a fairly modern computer running Windows XP SP1. Unitil I uninstalled a VPN client I have had no trouble with it. However, after the uninstall, Win XP displays a yellow icon with an exclamation mark for the network card in the device manager and the info says "Code 31 Could not load the drivers for this device".I have tried uninstalling the network adapter (in order to be able to re-install it) but Win XP tells me that it "Failed to uninstall the device. The device may be required to boot up the computer".I have also tried upgrading the drivers for the adapter but the problem prevails.My guess is that the registry somewhere links my network card with a virtual driver that the VPN client used.

Using system analysis software recommended on this site, I discover that my Mobo chipset is manufactured by Viathe Via VT8367-8235.Unfortunately, the specific board manufacturer is not apparent. (I assume that Via sells chipsets to many potential board manufacturers.)So I go to Vias web sight. I assume they actually do MoBos as well as chipsets. My board isnt specifically listed there.

Running On A Toshiba Laptop - Video - Network Adapter

I went to the Toshiba support page for the laptop and found only ONE Windows XP driver and that's for the built-in modem. The bulk of the drivers are for Vista.What would the chances of actually getting Windows XP to fully function on this laptop? Where would I go for XP drivers for things like the ATI video adapter, the network adapters (Wi-Fi and Ethernet), and so on?
