Thanks. I think I've done it now.....meaning I likely need a new card.
I tried a few things (turning it off in bios, uninstalling drivers, downloading new drivers, uninstalling from the device manager, manually adding the hardware from a list, etc.).
Now, if the adapter shows up at all in Device Manager, I get a "Code 10 Device cannot start" error.
Also, if I uninstall the drivers and the hardware (from the device manager) and let Windows detect new hardware, it only detects the "hardware" for the Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection. It doesn't detect and add the Intel Pro/100 VE Desktop Adapter. When I try to add the adapter manually using Add Hardware and a downloaded driver, I end up back at the Code 10 error.
I suspect the card may not be as dead as it appears. It is likely something that I'm doing. I'm hoping that a new card with a make this all go away (both the Code 10 and the "network cable unplugged" error).
