No ethernet controller after fresh install of Vista Home Dell OEM version

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I whipped a HDD drive with WipeDrive v3.0.2. Re-installed the OEM version of Vista and I can't get the Nic/Ethernet to work. I went to dells' website downloaded the Realtek driver for Vista and went to install it and at the very end of the install I keep getting the error of: No network interface card installed on this machine. 20 minutes before I did this the internet and the nic card worked fine, so I know it's not that. I tried going to "device manager" updating Ethernet controller to the E: where the Vista DVD is located and no luck. =/ The machine is a dell inspiron 530, it is totally stock. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Probably a dumb question but you're sure you have the realtek and not the intel onboard nic?

No possible way it was disabled in the BIOS? Just take a peek and see if that's the case.

Maybe you need to download the drivers manually from the Dell site instead of using the ones from the vista disk.

My next thought if it's enabled in the BIOS and still not working would be to try the drivers directly from Realtek.

Install the chipset drivers from Intel/AMD's site, then see if it shows up.

your ethernet drivers are missing after the wipe. download them drivers at the appropriate manufacturer's page!
