Hello,
My old z77 extreme 4 got broken and having very little money I purchased a cheap replacement from ebay - the GIGABYTE GA-H61M-DS2 DVI Motherboard which had apparently been tried and tested .
Anyway, after installing it, putting in my existing CPU (i5 3570k) everything booted up fine. However no internet, and coulnt get second monitor up.
So I downloaded and installed the 4 drivers from here - https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-H61M-DS2-DVI-rev-10/support#support-dl-driver for Windows 10 64bit, but still no LAN working.
Is there something else I can try? Do I need to go into BIOS? or anything like that. I'm really stumped and need the PC up and running for work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

try a usb network or a internal network card
Thanks. I ended up updating the BIOS (my first time) but then it wouldn't fully load Windows, however after starting in windows safemode, then restarting again ,for some reason it loaded into windows fully. It also then recognised my second monitor, however NO LAN still, so I opted for what you suggested, so I'm using a USB wireless adapter which got me back online, so thanks for the suggestion. Still don't know why the motherboard LAN port is not working, but at least I'm back up and running. Cheers.
