Nice ideas! The prob.for the@OP is, he cannot connect to the net using his PC!
That is why I provided the file for him. mb_driver_lan_realtek_rtltool.zip So he could run it and it will run test to see what the problem is.

On your next to the last screen shot where it says winInet Info An enternal erro occurred.

It leads me to believe at this point after everything that you have tried that you must have a bad controller.
It also says Wi-Fi not enabled, you may only be able to use Wi-Fi if it's avalible on your board.
I don't know what else to tell you to try at this point.

So bad controller means that it's a hardware issue I'm guessing? Maybe it's time to get a new mobo? Or is the controller software?? Im guessing it's the hardware or jumper switch or something on the mobo that got destroyed or went bad? Guess I have to look into getting a new motherboard?

If it's a bad controller then it' a hardware issue.
Has it ever worked and if so when and with what OS? I'd hate to be wrong and you buy a new board, maybe their will still be some suggestions for you to try.

You can always scroll down to the bottom of every thread and their will be a list of other threads with suggestions and problems similar to yours.

Sorry I'm out of suggestions.

i guess this was my last option but shouldve been my first

Hey guys, update. So i tried something else, since the 2 pci-e slots taht i put my nic card into aren't working ( this is actually something that I should've thought of before, I guess I was just too confused with why the two usual slots that i use weren't working ). I noticed that whatever drivers you guys pointed me to, like the original one from the gigabyte website that was actually the second post of this thread, which was the driver that I usually use to activate my LAN unit on this particular motherboard. In that awareness I noticed that in device manager that the "Network Adapter" drivers were all ok and recognized. So with that I just decided to plug my ethernet chord into my onboard ethernet port and it connected to the internet. So does this mean that those 2 pci slots are pretty much bad, and should I look into getting a new motherboard? Can someone tell me what exactly is a "controller"? Is it part of the motherboard's hardware? If there is soething to take from this thread that can be used to help troubleshoot peoples problems in the future, then I would say, if the pci slots are not working, run through all of the steps you guys have all given to me (rootkits, malware detection, etc) then chances are, is its not your nic card and to just use the (if you have one) onboard network for now.

P.s. The other devices > Ethernet controller, is still yellow and still doesnt look to be fixed/recognized.
