NIC will not install

By togi1 ·
I have tried to install two different net work cards in my computer and neither will install. The system recognise the card on bootup, but will not install the software! It goes past the cdrom and the A-drive and goes to Windows software and just sits. I have tried uninstalling network adaptors and that did not help.
How can I get my system to except the network card?
I am running 356M of ram, 800M P-III, 40G HD,Win ME.
Thanks for your help.

You didn't mention what type of nic your installing.
Try reading the instructions file on the disk that came with the nic. You may have to run the software first and that unpacks the drivers. When Windows boots and asks for the location for the driver just let it search and after it says it can't find a driver for it the nic select browse then search for the drivers folder for your OS. If not it will show up as other device. From there after running the software it may go out and install. Or you may have to go to Device Manager select the Other Deive and select change drivers then point to the place where the files were extracted to. NICs amnd modems are strange in this way.
