first off learn its not one chip
all PCs and for sure all HP
HP S5680t (what is that?)
ah, its a
"HP Pavilion Slimline s5680t CTO Desktop PC:
most HP PCs have 1 to 3 or more choices day 1 (bought)
for that chip, (for good reasons I will not tell now)
but is just a fact, that means use the correct driver to match your MOBO. there.
there are mobo chips (Ethernet) or PCI card chips for same
I have no idea at all what you have, i cant look in the case and see this in 1sec.flat, can I.
(and I sure could if there)
see my generic photo below for proof...
the HP driver comes as and EXE file,
its a program wrapped around a driver.
that program will talk to you, did it say it fails.
if yes,take that to the bank it it did.
for 3 reasons (lots of experience here on this)
1: wrong driver, it says basically that.
2: OS is corrupted. run SFC scannow,
3: missing BASE line drivers.
3a: pretend building a home, and the framer guys start before the foundation was poured. hark. fail. epic.
like this.: Original Intel Chipset Driver
like this: Original Realtek Networking Controller Driver
but WAIT , HP has driver gawd ! called SOFTPAQ
get that first. (or reinstall hp w7)
run softpaq, i cant find it for yours.
that means no driver gawd, auto driver fixer program
so you get to load the them all in the correct order
or run the F11 fresh installed or the HP media kit install.
try to know there is no why for microsoft to update any driver here
its and HP system , only HP can fix your system using only HP drivers, missing none , or installed in the wrong order.
if at witts end go to realtek, dot com home page and get it there.
last resort that, and can work.
hp no help at all is bs
ever heard of HP forums. wow.
discussion boards = forums,
i bet you never tried there.
free help, 10000s watching. helping. with skills.
here is a fix that works
keep in mind what WINDOZ 7 now has 300+_ updates
and windows updates can in fact break perfectly good
HP driver agents.
that agent is sp12345.exe
may not like your newer version of W7 or is corrupted.
the fix is using free 7zip
to extract the actual driver code then manually installing the driver.
its rare failure. Ive seen it and done this many times.(on may PCs not just HP, 100s since 1981.
here is the same fix here.
