Windows 7: Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter

Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter


I recently installed Windows 7 x64 onto my PC where I run my internet to it via an ethernet cord. Trouble being, the PC doesn't read a network adapter and I cannot connect to the internet to do a DriverTuner search for updates, etc. I've got a CPU of AMD Phenom II X6. Would their website best to check? I've browsed it and cannot find anything on it, and anything I can burn to a disk to try to run from this laptop I'm on over to my PC requires internet connection to scan for the necessary missing devices.

Please help!!!

Much appreciated,

Your motherboard manufacturer would be the place to find LAN chipset drivers, etc. I believe this is what you are looking for---> Asus 990FX Drivers

Just select your OS and find a way to download the LAN Chipset driver and put it on a flash drive. That should get you up and running.

I've now done this countless times. I go to download the file for my appropriate BIOS and it is a ROM file that doesn't lead to anything when I unzip the file. When I try to search for a program that can work with the file, I get nothing.

What are you doing?
kbrady set you on the right path.

Enlist the help of a friend with a pc, and download the motherboard drivers from the Asus link. DO NOT do anything with the BIOS. You can burn them to a cd; or copy them to a flash drive. Then take that to your pc and install.
