Bought a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC at a flea market that someone had built themselves. It has an Intel core 2 duo e7500 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L motherboard, and Award modular BIOS.
I can't get to the internet with it.
Device manager looked
okay - no questions marks, but when I opened Network adapters, it just said ethernet driver
- no actual name. When I clicked on properties, it said no driver was installed. I tried the update driver software, scan for hardware changes, but nothing helped.
Then I uninstalled the driver, rebooted, and there it was - a Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC driver.
However, when I clicked on properties it said 'This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use (Code 12)'
I tried a different driver - Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller #2, but get the same results about the lack of free resources.
What can I do?
