NIC adapter disappears???

I now have a new problem! Any internal network interface card (NIC), or
Ethernet network adapter, completly disappears from my PC. I have replaced
thew orginal card with an new one and it behaves the same way. Also, now is
it not "plug and play"ing. I have tried to remove the card from Device
Managment but XP comes up with 'This device may be nedded to boot..." and
refuses to remove all traces of the card.

I have also tries to manually add the network adapter to my system but in
comes out with an error 10 in Device Management.

Fortuneately I have a "spare" USB network adapter which works.

How do I fix my network setup, so as to us the internal NIC?

Hi

Try boot into BIOS and click the boot tab, disable "wake on lan" then save and exit
Shut down the PC and unplug the AC power cord
Unplug the USB lan card and physically remove the lan card from the PCI slot
Restart windows several times, go to device manager to ensure there is no NIC device
Shutdown the PC and unplug the AC power cord
Insert the NIC card into slot 2 or 3
Replug the AC power cord and start the PC
Go to device manager to ensure the NIC is properly installed and works properly

Hope it helps

Pete
