I cannot get my internet to connect... worked fine before.

Hi everyone. I hope I am posting this in the right spot.
One day my internet is working, the next day its not.

My computer shows an error that says, "the realtek pcie fe family controller adapter is experiencing driver or hardware problems."

I have an hp desktop model #p6533w.

I am not that computer savvy so please let me know of any additional info you need to make a better analysis.

Things I have tried:
> restoring my computer to an earlier time
> restoring my computer to factory settings
> resetting my modem.

I just tried updating and I get a message that says it is up to date already.

Note: device status says, "this device cannot start. ( code 10)"

I ran into a problem.

Since my computer will not go on line I saved the program on an external drive and then tried to open it on my computer.

But an unknown error occurs that prevents the program from downloading.

I am stumped.

Try uninstalling the adapter in Device manager and re-boot.

I am a newbie, so bare with me please.

Is re booting the same as restarting?

Okay.

I uninstalled and rebooted.

I now get a message that says "device driver software was not successfully installed"

Any more suggestions?

Do you have the original drivers and other software disk that came with the computer? Not to be confused with the operating system disk!

I dont think so.

It came with one cd that says software and documentation.
