Hi I'm new and need a bit of help

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I'm building my first system and everything went smoothly until I tried to connect to the internet. No matter what I've tried it simply won't connect. I've tried even installing different OS like XP and XP pro. I even installed a PCI ethernet card thinking maybe the integrated one was bad but it still won't connect. I'm on my older PC right now using the same connection so I know my internet connection is good.I know I'm just missing something somewhere and can't figure it out. I downloaded the latest BIOS onto this PC and will transer the file to the new one but wanted to ask for help before I disconnected everything again.

My setup is: (let me know if you need more info)
OS: Vista
MoBo: MB ASROCK 4CoreDual-VSTA 775
CPU: core 2 duo E6400
Mem: 2g G.Skill pc2 4200
VGA: 7600gs AGP 8x
HDD: WD EiDE 160gb
PSU: Antec 650w truepower

Have you installed the drivers for the integrated Ethernet?

How familiar are you with computers first of all? We don't want to just list random stuff and you not knowing what we're talking about.

Second, did you check all your drivers? I don't mean to treat you like a n00b, but I'm going to take you through all the steps of my suggestions: Go to Start>(right click)Computer>Properties>Device Manager. Does anything have a yellow exclamation by it? Just to make sure, click on Network Adapters and make sure it says the drivers are running.

That should be the first thing to check. Tell us if that helped anything. If not, then we'll check something else.

edit\\\
ight before me goose. I was about to type check drivers, but I wanted to give an explanation. Good suggestions though, it's nice to see a new member help others.

A driver CD should be a 1 step solution.

Depends how old the CD is, there could be newer drivers out. But that or checking device manager could tell us if it was driver problems.

I've installed all the drivers the board came with. My device manager is reconizing the integrated ethernet but not letting me online. My PCi ethernet card won't let me install the drivers. I'm having an issue with the floppy too. It sounds like the floppy is working but it won't read the disc and it won't let me read anything on the disc. I'm pretty familiar with computers but i've never built one from the ground up before so this is all new to me. You can all treat me like a noob if it will fix my problem lol!

Why can't you install drivers for the ethernet card? Those are kinda necessary for the card to run properly...heh....

But besides that, if you plug in an ethernet cable, does it recognize it? Actually, first off, does it recognize that there isn't an ethernet cable?

I'm not sure why it won't me install drivers from the floppy. As far as the cable goes the PCI card lights up like it should when the cable is plugged in but the integrated one doesn't.

Have you tried going to the website of the PCI Ethernet card and manually downloading the newest drivers then putting it onto a USB instead?
