    Graphics Card as Network Controller?

    I've been having issues with my (self built) PC for months, and I'm fairly certain it's software issues as all of my hardware has been checked with exception of CPU. That's a different discussion, though, but that's what led me to format and install windows on my hard drive again. I installed all of my drivers, but in device manager I have a "Network Controller" issue. I didn't have this issue before the new install.

    When I look at the properties, it shows me this:

    My graphics card (EVGA GEFORCE GTX 1080Ti) is in my PCI slot 1. Under Display Adapters, the GPU is shown. So I'm miffed as to why this network controller is here and how to fix it.

    graphics card problems


    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hello Brian,

    I request you to try the following steps:

    Uninstall and Reinstall the Graphics Card Drivers.

    Step 1: Uninstall the Graphics Card

    • Right click on the Start menu.

    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the Graphics Card
      from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers
      from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and then restart the computer if prompted.
    After the restart, please go ahead with the next steps to install the latest drivers and check if that resolves the issue.

    Step 2: Go to the Computer or Graphics Card
    manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the
    Graphics Card model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.
