Product Name and Number:
HP Pavilion Dv9700
s/n [Personal Information Removed]
Windows Vista 64bit
When I open my Device Manager there is an /!\ next to NVIDIA nforce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet.
When I open it's properties there is a message under the Device Status stating:
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
It gives me the option to "Search for solutions" which has proven unsuccessful.
Also, I have the latest driver installed.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Right click the device itself and select Uninstall. When this has completed, restart the notebook and let Windows re-discover the device and then check in Device Manager again.

If uninstalling and letting the NIC card get rediscovered and the drivers installed doesn't work, I recommend you install the nForce chipset driver for your machine which contains the ethernet drivers and see if that gets it.

This solution was unseccessful. I am still getting the same error message. Nothing has changed. Any other suggestions?
