  • I keep loosing my Ethernet Card Driver

    Hi,

    Everyday the pass week I keep loosing my ethernet card. The only way I could get this resolved is by doing a system restore from the previous day.

    This is what I found from the event viewer.

    Code:
    Log Name:      System
    Source:        PlugPlayManager

    Has it been set to be disabled by a Power Management profile?

      Thanks for replying biggles77.

      The power management is disabled.

      I left for a couple hours and it got deleted again so I had to do a system restore to get it back.

      Look at the attachment below in the device manager I highlighted the NIC driver that's being deleted.

      Any thoughts?

        Re: I'm keep loosing my Ethernet Card Driver.

        have you downloaded the most recent drivers (from the manufacturer, not the windows drivers) and tried installing them manually that way, rather than restoring continually ?

        Actually, is this an onboard card, or a daughter board ?

          The model of the laptop is Sony Vaio VGN-FZ410E. I downloaded the driver from the sony's website. The NIC card is actually built onto the mother board.

            Re: I'm keep loosing my Ethernet Card Driver.

            Does it appear as "unknown" in device manager, or does it actually disappear completely?
            If the latter, what happens if you scan for new hardware?

            I'm thinking something dodgy (loose solder?) on the ethernet section of the Mobo

              It actually disappears completely. Yes, I scan for new hardware and nothing appears.

                Have you scanned the HDD for Spyware, Malware, Virus and Rootkit?

                What happens if you reboot and not do a System Restore?

                  I have scanned, I use "Microsoft security Essentials".

                  Re-booting does not help.

                  I woke up this morning and my ethernet driver is still installed. This what I've done so far. I notice there were allot of active scheduled runs in my scheduled task manager, so I deleted every thing. Also, I disabled allot of start-up services. So far everything has been ok.

                  I'll keep you guys posted.

                    MS Security Essentials is not what I would consider a good scan of your system for the above issues. IMO you need to use 2 or 4 virus scanners (there are various free online ones), Spybot & Malwarebytes plus different Rootkit Revealers.
                    MSSE does NOT do all of this.

                      The automatic update is on? If is on try to switch to manual. Is posible to update the drivers with a bad version ... i have same problems with windwos update and video cards drivers.

                        Try disabling "Smart Power Down" (or DSPD) on the NIC.

                          So I got it resolved (Kind of) by powering down the laptop and then unplug it and pulled the battery. But if I put it in sleep mode again the same problem occurs.

                          I'll try your suggestion Rems and let your know.
