No LAN or internet connection after install new motherboard

localap
Installed new nVidia GForce AM3 motherboard:
AMD Quad Athlon II x 4 630 in computer runnung XP Professional SP3.

Upon completion booted up, Windows booted ok. Completed re-activation. Now have no network or internet.

Device manager shows 'nVidia Network Bus Enumerator' and 'nVidia nForce Networking Controller #2'as OK, which clearly they are not.

Any suggestions for a fix please?

    hello,


    can you answer me the following :
    * are you in a corporate network?
    * Has the network connector also changed, I mean, Is it part of the motherboard or is it a seperate card?
    * can you go to start, run and type "cmd" and enter it. In the box that follows type "ipconfig /all" and enter. post back the results.

    You could also check whether there is a firewall, proxy and if your network services are running

    Try deleting all of the network devices (uninstall) and then try a reboot. Let the boot sequence re-discover the networking and re-install it. Maybe that will help.

    If not, try installing drivers directly from the manufacturer. Download the latest updates to a thumb drive, then "Update Driver".

    If that doesn't work, try installing an inexpensive generic network card to establish connectivity, then see what drivers, configuration files or other resources might be available to resolve the issue. Search the internet for terms like "GForce network error" and see if others have had similar problems, and what their resolutions were.

    Good luck.
