The problem started 2 months back. I use Windows 7 and have ethernet cable connection. Since my PC cannot support Windows 10. I could no longer connect to the internet. There was a red cross available on the network icon and said "no Connection are available". When I went to network settings there were no networks adapters available in "change adapter settings". The folder was blank.

However my other PC works fine. I can access the internet through the ethernet just fine. I reinstalled my OS but still the problem persists. I downloaded the network driver and tried to install it but it gave the error "Cannot install drivers. No Intel(R) Adapters are present in this computer"

I opened cmd as administrator and tried "ipconfig /release" it gave the error "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation"

I even did "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" and restarted my PC to reset the TCP/IP network protocol. Even then I got the same error I got in "ïpconig /release".

Whenever I press on network option it says No connection are available.

Kindly help me fix this issue as soon as possible.

Thank you

you cannot issue windows with net commands when it cannot see any network card/adapter/chip present.

enter bios and see if your mobo network chip is switched on.
no = turn on and restart, windows will find hardware and install drivers.
yes = problem with your mobo - faulty network chip, pnp issue (happens when mobos are old), bios requires update? put in a new nic

Chipset is on. So does that mean I have to completely change my motherboard now??

you have tried running windows repair first?

if you are willing to, clean install windows 7

if the problem persists then i am afraid its either:
buy a separate network card and plug that in.
buy a new mobo.
