    Realtek PCIe GBE device cannot start code 10


    Hi,
    PC is an old MSI board G31M3-L V2 (MS-7529) with latest BIOS 2.80
    WIn 10 Pro.
    The onbaord NIC is a Realtek PCIe GBE .
    While the PC is booting one light is flashing in the network socket. When WIn10 boots the light is off, a red x is on the Network icon in the systray. In device manager there is a yellow triangle on the NIC . In details it says:
    This device cannot start (code 10)
    The driver is the latest from Realtek 10.8.311.2016 (11-Mar-16)
    I have tried different drivers, uninstalling and reboot. But no solution.
    Any suggestions?

    The board is quite old and the manufacturer does not provide drivers for anything beyond Win 7.

    The last driver they released for W7 was ver 7.97.1001.2015. You could try it:

    Looks like you have a Realtek RTL8111c ( in Manual linked above) which is supported under win10 ( see below) but it's possible on an older board you have an IRQ Conflict since it won't start ,perhaps you can assign IRQ's in the Bios if needed or in Device Manager?- Resources Tab I think? maybe.....

    I had the same error with windows 7. I upgraded to 10 in hope that a new driver would fix it. I did try this driver , by manually "upgrading" to it , but same error.

    Under resources it says: this device isn't using any resources because it has a problem.

    I am now thinking it's a hardware problem. I no longer have the activity light in the network socket when booting.
    I installed WinXP on an old drive , and installed the latest driver from Realtek site - same error in XP.
    I tried to downgrade the BIOS to all the old versions - no change.
    So I put a PCI NIC which works fine (but it's an old 10/100 card).
    The weird thing is that after I disabled the onboard LAN in the BIOS, the activity light now comes on when I put the network cable in the socket.
    If anyone has any explanation for this - great. Otherwise I will assume the onboard NIC is dead.

    Did you try assigning an IRQ Manually in the Bios to the Onboard Nic? it maybe conflicting with the Graphics card for example.

    I did not because from what I read, since Windows 2000 , it does not matter what you assign in the Bios, Windows manages its own IRQs. Also, like I said, the NIC was not assigned any IRQ under the resources tab.
    But I will take a look in the Bios.

    I checked the BIOS - there is no option to configure IRQs

    Unistall the driver and then pull the batery out from the bios to reset it.
    Then go in your bios and make the settings you had again
