Windows 7 Pro just lost its NIC driver.  I attached the image.  Has anyone seen thing like this before.  Weird it about 30 Network controllers in the device manager and all missing driver under other devices.

Hi

Sounds like a defected NIC. All reoccur if you delete them all and scan for PnP devices?

Uninstall driver, reinstall, if that doesnt work:
you could try to re-seat the nic in the motherboard.
if that doesnt work; try it on a different PC and see if it works there then prove its bad

Uninstalled all.  Removed all unneeded devices. Scanned to HW changes.  Auto-installed.  Boot.
All set.
Thanks.
