Windows 7: NVIDIA LAN issue

NVIDIA LAN issue

Hello, i'm very new to dealing with computer problems and have no idea what to do

I just got a new computer today with Windows 7, it has a NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 which I guess it uses to connect to the internet, but the computer is acting as if my ethernet cable isn't plugged in. (it is, lol)

When I first plugged in the cable the green light next to the port was flashing as if it was working, and it seems to have stopped after my computer finished doing the things it does when you first start up a new computer, the light does not flash at all now.

When I click on the connections icon it says "no connections are available" and when I do troubleshoot it says "The local area connection is experiencing driver or hardware related problems".

Also its driver is 73.0.6.0 if that helps

Thanks!!!!

AS you have a NEW COMPUTER, call your retailer as you may lose your Warranty.

Could you be so kind as to fill out your specifications, it really makes it so much easier to give you advice rather than to constantly ask questions all the time. Most PC retailers won't void your warranty if you open your case but you do have to be careful and know one way or the other.

Using DELL for an example as one who allows you to open your case, the standard procedure would be to ensure every stick of RAM, every component and every connection were tight and secure. We can help if you'll help us help you.

According to the Acer site you have a
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Optional WLAN: IEEE 802.11 b/g/draft-N
network card.

Could you possible show a screen shot of your devices from device manager?

Lisa before installing the driver pebbly linked to, open Programs and features (the old Add and Remove Programs) and look for an entry called Nvidia drivers (if Acer didn't screw things up it should be there).

Once found click on it and select Uninstall. That should bring up a window asking whether you want remove all Nvidia drivers (default), select to uninstall the components you choose, and if it is present uninstall the "Nvidia Network Management Tools". restart if asked and then try the connection again.
