Default [SOLVED] PCIe Drivers Broken

=============SOLVED=================
(If anyone could tell me how to delete a thread that would be nice )

Hi,
I recently updated to windows 10 and the other day I bluescreened. My computer restarted and my Ethernet wasn't working. I found the problem was my Realtek PCIe Family controller drivers so I went and reinstalled them with 3DPnet. This worked for me but today as I booted my computer up again I bluescreened once more, the same problem. So I tried what I went through the other day but it did not work. I had uninstalled my drivers and cannot reinstall them. I went digging on the internet for the same drivers (or what I think were) from October 2015 (which is the one I had before) to install them. I tried this twice and still did not work. I am sat here with no Ethernet on my computer and drivers that don't work. Any solutions? Feel free to ask questions. Many thanks.

I advise against using any kind of 3rd party driver-updater software. I've only ever seen them cause issues.

Since you say you solved it...mind sharing what you did?

Well I found out it wasn't driver related at all, My Ethernet plug had a fault so I just switched it out for a spare one I had lying round and all good as new (I'm angry at myself that I spent 2 hours of pointlessly installing drivers without checking the plug). In regards to 3DPnet I spent about half an hour trawling websites just to check it was working and not dodgy and they all came back with positive reviews. I recommend it to someone needing to install drivers offline.

Good to hear it was a simple fix.

I still advise against driver-updater apps. Manually getting the drivers is much better, and more reliably get the latest driver version directly from the component manufacturer's site.

On the second run of me reinstalling drivers I did download drivers directly from Realtek if that makes you feel better
