Default Re: Realtek LAN: Device Cannot Start

Well, I installed 7 on my system just to see if the onboard network on my P35 board works and it worked immediately without a single problem.

I installed Vista on the G41 system and it has the SAME problem with the onboard network chip. The default driver had a code 10 error, and so did the latest vista driver direct from realtek. If it does it in Vista and 7 with multiple drivers under multiple different situations, that's more than just coincidence.

So, I think I'm just going to RMA this thing and tell them to give me a refund. If I have to I'll eat the 15% fee just to get it out of my hair. I'm not going to need another board for quite a while so it makes no sense to spend the $10 to ship it back for RMA just to have a sub par board laying around for 6 months waiting for a system.
