Windows 7: LAN card disabled but I can still use my internet

LAN card disabled but I can still use my internet

Everytime I open my computer, it is always installing devices. I usually have problem in installing my sound(sometimes my computer detects it as realtek sometimes its high definition audio device) and LAN(realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC #366).

1. Usually repairing my sound device works. (about 70%) How can I solve it permanently?

2. My computer says my LAN is not working but I can still access the internet. What seems to be the problem?

I suppose you should go to your computer manufacturers web-site and download and install the correct drivers. The task is not very difficult.

If your video card has an HDMI or DVI connector the "high definition audio device" could be part of your video card and not your Realtek audio card. You may need to have both drivers installed. If you are deleting one or the other that may explain why they keep installing again. You may actually have two separate audio devices.
