Well that is an interesting error <G>
OK for generic purposes - be sure that your video, sound, and mobo drivers are up to date.
Then go to the NIC card site and download the latest drivers for your card. Then reboot and press the F8 Key (after memory run and before windows splash screen) and select safe mode.
Go to control panel  |  system | device manager and remove network adapter (and all other stuff that you may have lsited under the +)
Now reboot into windows and when the hardware wizard comes up for your NIC card select the new driver that you dl.
Also at bootup note the IRQ being used for the network card - go to device manager and click on my computer then look at IRQ's to see if there is a conflict (you can also go to start  |  run   and type   msinfo32 to get the IRQ info.
Please do come back and post your exact error messages here!

You can go to http://www.driverguide.com/
and create an account.
You will have to know which NIC card you have and be sure to download the correct driver for that particular card.
You can also go to the manufacturer sites as well.

Is this a Modem and not a network card?  Are you on a network at home?

The interrrupt problem was due to hardware evidently.

Unfortunately, before I knew this I repartitioned and formated my hardware. As soon as the network port was activated, I received the same interrupt message and problem.

I tried to get an updated driver. Downloaded it from the manufacturer. But it would not install. It appears that the inf file is miswritten. I guess there is a chance that an updated driver might have solved the problem but I doubt it.

Disactivating the built-in network connection and installing a network card resulted in no conflicts or problems. Worked perfectly from then on.

Could you explain this? "Disactivating the built-in network connection"  How was this done?  Installing which networkcard?
Thank you,

"Disactivating the built-in network connection" means to me to change the jumper jp6 which is the built-in Lan selector on the motherboard. Changing the jumper to dissabled, dissables the ethernet connection on the motherboard. Sorry.
