Install a driver for your network adapter

    Install a driver for your network adapter


    Hello, I went to get on my desktop computer, and it's saying "Install a driver for your network adapter - Windows did not detect a properly installed driver. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver".

    It won't even let me connect to a webpage.

    How can I fix this?

    Use another computer to download the proper display driver & network drivers you need, then place them on a USB stick.

    I got it fixed. I had to disable the network adapter (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller), and then reboot the computer. That automatically re-enables the adapter and fixes it.

    Thanks, broe23 for your help.
