Network Adapter Driver "Encountered Problem"

I seem to be the only one with this problem, if there is another thread for this sorry couldn't find it but my problem occurred a few days ago i got my graphics card/ installed it/ found out my psu is weak for it/ un-installed it/ put my computer back together and my internet connection has a red "x" over it so i automatically troubleshoot it and the following message said "must update network adapter" i go in my network adapters there's 6-8 of them only 2 will update the others give me the following error

"Windows has found the software for your driver but has encountered a problem installing driver software"

i reformatted my hard drive, did about 7 fresh clean installs of windows 7 both 64bit and 32bit, i system restored (before i reformatted) i did system repair, i went on my old computer (the one i'm using now) and downloaded the LAN Driver from MSI Motherboard website, and yet nothing seems to work

i seen possible theories like, remove the ram and start my computer then place it back in, reset the cmos battery, and put my graphics card back in any suggestions?

The preferred and recommended source for on-board device drivers is the PC/Laptop manufacturer's website if it's a well-known brand with good customer support. They often have motherboards or on-board devices custom made along with custom made drivers which only they have.

Consequently, drivers from the motherboard or network card manufacturer may not work.

Of course, that doesn't apply if you built the PC yourself, had it built for you, or you fitted a new motherboard. In those instances you do get drivers from the motherboard maker exactly as you have done.
