Network card installation failure windows 2000 professional
Posted on 2006-07-04
I am running windows 2000 Professional. When I try to install a network card I get the following message: Error occured during the installation of the device
The INF or the device information set or element does not match the specific install class.
I have tried a Lynksys and a D-link card same problem. I followed the Microsoft instructions:
1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate the following key in the registry:
3. Under the PCI folder, there are several keys that begin with VEN. For each VEN key, click the key, click its subkey, and then observe the device description on the right side of the Registry Editor. Delete each subkey whose device description pertains to a network interface card. Do not delete the VEN key itself. Here is an example of a device description that pertains to a network adapter:
DeviceDesc:REG_SZ:3Com EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI TX NIC (3C905B-TX)
Still have the same issue. I am currently trying to install a D-Link DFE-530TX+.
Thanks in advance
