I have a Silan SC92031 PCI Ethernet Adapter. It was working perfectly on my Windows XP. When I switched to Windows 7 by doing a clean install, my network adapter was not recognized.

I can’t install the driver because the hardware itself is not detected. I’ve searched the internet for hours and found nothing that can help me to solve this problem. If anyone has an idea about this please help me. Thanks.

Your PC's Silan SC92031 PCI Ethernet Adapter not working in Windows 7. You were using windows XP. Now you are using Windows 7 which is better than Windows XP. Firstly, make sure your component is Windows 7 supported.

Then Install the eithernet's Driver which is Windows 7 supported. You can download your driver from this sites(mentioned in the following):

http://download.cnet.com/

After downloading software, Install it. After installing you will be able to run your component in Windows 7. I hope you got the answer . If this works fine then ok or if it doesn't try to buy a new ethernet which is capable of windows 7. I hope this will do.

It is useless to visit other web sites and download newer versions of your network card’s driver if, on the first place, your network card is already undetected by your system. To be able to install the latest driver, your network card should first be detected by the CPU. If the CPU already can’t detect the device, then it is a hardware problem.

Since this is the current state of your device, try transferring the network card to the next available PCI slot and then see if Windows can detect it. Continue on transferring the network card to the next available slot until Windows detects it.

But if all the available slots were already used and still the device was undetected, try cleaning the network card. Rub the copper part of the device, the part that connects and slides to the slot, with an ordinary pencil eraser.

Do this on both sides and then finish it with a clean cloth. Connect it back to the slot and start Windows again. See if Windows can now detect it. If cleaning the network card didn’t help, I think you may have to buy a new network card and replace it.
