Default Re: enthernet adapter not responding

It is clearly a driver issue. Download Aida32 and run it on the laptop. It will tell you the exact card you have then you can go find the correct driver.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
