I have run into a dilemma of sorts. I had, through most post and Google searching, found drivers to Install WIndows XP Professional on another Hard Drive. The only thing is all of a sudden after a reinstall due to admin install issues, the ethernet controller fails to install anymore. HP doesn't really have much to offer info wise on the IPMTB-TK/Truckee Motherboard
and Google has failed me as well. I was wondering if maybe there is something else to the motherboard that it needs in order to make the Ethernet work(like a plug that needs to be plugged somewhere) or maybe the hardware has failed or any real reasoning really. I won't reinstall, it hasn't worked over 5 times, nor had upgrading helped, switching to the drive that worked(Also XP) now shows the same LAN Error (This device cannot start. Code:10). Wireless Card Drivers work luckily, but that's as far as internet is working on my specs. Other than the HP PC being Model m9650f and that the Win XP I am doing it is on 32-bit and that it keeps saying the drivers are installed, yet when I check they refuse to work now. Any help is appreciated.

Gave it a shot , but I do get a current drivers are installed message. I'm still trying to figure it out how to get it working. Thanks for that suggestion, it never came to me as a first try. :3

Try uninstalling the driver via Device Manager and then reboot. Windows will re-install the driver. You might want to have the latest driver on your desktop in case Windows doesn't get it re-installed.

Try boot up in safe mode (F8 at boot time) and select with networking. Now does it work?
Are you plugging directly into a router or directly into a modem?
Use PC Doctor to run a communications and network diagnostic. It will probably fail due to that code 10 error.

Same results with the mini Packet Driver alqays installing, but not the actual Integrated Network working. I am using a wireless router, but I don't see how it would affect the LAN Connector?
Here is the results from the Diagnostics it gave me. It seems to look like the one in the Device Manager for the PCI Location results. I can add a Pic of the Error in the Device Manager or anything else needed. Thanks

Wouldn't be able to. The router is the only way to hook it up, but I tried a gaming console's USB to Ethernet Adapter and that seems to check out just fine. I am wondering if it's the PC Hardware itself or just the INtel Drivers being all screwy. It worked before so I don't know what's going on now...

Again, uninstall the network driver and then re-install it using the downloaded driver. The Intel Prowin32.exe should be the correct driver. You might want to look into the ethernet jack with a flashlight and see it there are any bent pins.
Why can't you connect directly to the modem?
Does the LAN network connect in the lower right corner of the task bar show a red X? Right mouse click on it and select troubleshoot.
