Default Problem after graphics card install

I just installed a GeForce 9800 GT graphics card and now my internet does not work. Windows tells me there is a problem with a PCI bridge device and a Sm bus controller. When I try to install drivers, windows cannot go online to find them. I tried putting the old card back in but the internet problem remains.

You'll need to find another computer with internet and go to your motherboard manufacturers site to get the chipset and networking drivers.

Yea, that was it. I still had the disk that came with the mobo, so I used that. Now I'm good to go.
Thanks
