My husband reformatted my computer (Compaq Presario SR5027CL) and reinstalled all the drivers for Vista. The only one that's not installed is the Ethernet Controller, which has a yellow mark next to it when I look at the Device Manager. It looks like it's a nVIDIA nForce Networking Controller, but I can't find the driver to install it. I even went to the Compaq site, but didn't find anything. Spent the last 5 hours trying to fix this problem to no avail. Please help.

Can you post the hardware id listed for the device.

Open the Device Manager
Right Click on the Device in question
Details Tab

In XP the VEN_ #### and DEV_ #### is located under Device Instance ID
In Vista and Win7 the VEN_ #### and DEV_#### is located under Hardware ID

When I open Network Adapter in Device Manager, there's nothing there. How can I get the drivers for it? I'm not computer literate, but I think CCT is correct regarding it being a Realtek RTL8201N. Where can I download this driver?

According to the specs you have a Nvidia Geforce 6150SE Nforce 430 chipset.
Motherboard Specifications, M2N68-LA (Ivy) Compaq Presario SR5027CL Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

The Network controller is part of the Nforce 430 chipset.

This is where I got my data; Compaq Presario SR5027CL Desktop PC Product Specifications Compaq Presario SR5027CL Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (Canada - English)

I would have thought the Realtek driver would also work - no matter - if the chipset was installed then it should work now.
