    W8 Pro 64bit does not start nVidia Ethernet after Win Upd


    A couple of days ago I installed Windows 8 Pro on my nForce 570 SLI with two integrated ethernet interfaces and an AMD CPU and it seemed to work out very fine. But then I installed all the Windows Update updates and now the ethernet drivers will not start. They worked just fine before I did all the Windows Update installations.

    The drivers initially in use was those that came with the Windows 8 Pro installation. As a solution I have forced an installation of the drivers from the nForce 15.58 driver package for Windows 7 64-bit, but with no change.

    The messages I get when doing a Windows Network Diagnostics is:
    Issues found
    The "Ethernet" adapter is not working properly
    The "Ethernet" is experiencing driver or hardware-related problems.

    The same messages for "Ethernet 2".

    I have not been able to find any related reports in Event Viewer

    Could someone please help me out?

    Best regards,

    By chance I found a post over in the Asus forum where a couple of other guys had the same problem. One of them mentioned that the specific ethernet chip was susceptible to static electricity. So a light bulb went on where I thought that I should try discharging the motherboard. So I disconnected the power cord and pushed the power button on my computer for about 30 seconds. Problem solved. Network connection is up and running again
