Cant install NIC drivers

I have two pci NIC cards, Level One GNC-0150T and TP-Link TF-3239DL, i have the installation cd from both cards (the cards are brand new). When im trying to install the drivers (from the original cd or from downloaded files) ive got error "windows could not find driver software for your device". This happens to both cards. So something is going wrong with my windows. any help?

Typically, these "installation CDs" come with apps you're supposed to run -- which then install the drivers. I did this for my RealTek nic drivers and it also installed a RealTek NIC Diagonostic tool. Are you using those? Or, are you going through the default hardware installation screen and telling it to search for drivers?

The Level one has, one from realtek , the tp-link has only .inf drivers. My problem is that in device manager i see the NIC as PCI Device-no drivers installed.
