Ethernet Controller Driver, (Code 28)

Driver provider is unknown, so I cannot download the correct ethernet controller driver. I've currently tried to update the driver, but it can't find any driver software for it.

If this is the computer in your specs, those drivers can be found at this link,

You need to start with the chipset INF and the other two in that section,

Then the Realtek LAN.

You also need your USB 3.0 driver,

And unless you are going to disable the onboard graphics one of those Intel VGA drivers.

You have a GeForce GTX 950 listed in your specs, you'll need drivers for that too.
