Just a thought...

Did you install the correct Chipset Driver FIRST? If not, or you installed the wrong one, it will never work.

Open the Device Manager, click Start then Run and enter devmgmt.msc
Right click on the device and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID string.
Then paste it (Ctrl+v) in your reply.
I will try to find your drivers for you.
