    Hey there!

    I installed Windows 7 yesterday on my machine. Right from the beginning I had the strangest problem with my ethernet driver. I have the IN9 32X-MAX Wi-Fi Mainboard from abit which uses the Nforce 680i SLI chipset. So I installed the windows 7 driver from nvidia, which at first didn't help. After hours of trying win7 still didn't find my driver. Frustrated as I've been I simply pulled the plug and restarted afterwards.... And suprise, my network drivers were found, everything worked fine. A sidenote hiere: Serveral restarts, shutdowns etc did not help! Only pulling the plug!

    After going to bed and booting up this morning: The same problem! I again pulled the plug and rebooted and it worked again! Is there any permanent fix for that? I really don't want to pull the plug everytime I want to use my computer...
