This is my conclusion about my BSOD. I install a realtek ethernet pci-express driver in the onboard ethernet, that's why it got complicated.

Check me pls if im wrong.

Board: XFXG31i

Yeah, you need the proper driver for the hardware

I'm not finding anything on your system board, but you need to identify the exact make and model of the ethernet chipset and download the appropriate driver for it. You can't just install any driver.

Enter device manager, select the ethernet, brin up properties, then roll back the driver. If you don't get the old driver back, I suggest uninstalling the driver, then uninstall the ethernet device from the hardware tree. Reboot, and the correct driver should install itself. If the driver is not present, you'll need to search for the appropriate driver for your chipset.

And PCI is the expansion slot, so no, expansion drivers won't work for onboard chipsets.

Well a Google Search of your Listed M'Board

Comes back with No Match Found so you need to provide the correct Make & Model for assistance for the correct On Board LAN Driver.

If you do not know which On Board Network Device you have you can Identify it with Unknown Device Identifier available here
