Failed to update the Ethernet Controller driver

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Hello hardware Professionals,

When I try to update the Daemon tools driver I got an error first and this error triggers for all the drivers whatever I am updating. For your information I update my operating system and application in regular basis. And also I tried the automatic driver update, but no luck. Do you have any helpful suggestion? Please provide me some assistance in setting up the drivers. Thanks.

Failed to update the Ethernet Controller driver


Because you said that you update your Microsoft Windows operating system on a regular basis, the problem may be caused by the recent update you installed and this is a very common problem on the updates being installed by the Microsoft Windows Automatic Update module. Some of the problems were getting an already installed application incompatible, cannot install driver though it is supported, and others.

Since the affected component is only the network card, simply uninstall the original driver and shut down your computer. Unplug the CPU from the outlet and remove the network card from the slot. After that, plug it again to the outlet and start the computer. Update Microsoft Windows and install the available updates.

Next, shut down your computer, unplug it from the outlet, insert the network card again to the slot, plug the CPU to the outlet, and start the computer. When the operating system detects the new device, just install it using your original driver. Once installed, just update it again. In case the problem continues, visit Realtek Drivers Download and download the update for your network card.
