How to uninstall a network card removed from the computer

If you need to remove a network adapter on your PC, for example, reinserted in another PCI slot (for example, because the old slot is physically damaged), you can run into some problems:

1) network connection settings used by the old card slot, no longer visible. The system hides them, but they are displayed. Then you should at least write down all settings before changing the card or the card slot.

2) If you unplug the card without having first uninstalled Device Manager panel you risk going mad to reconfigure the network settings for the new card or for the same card that is inserted into another PCI slot .

Xp it keeps both the old memory card with the associated network settings, ready to use them again if re-insert the same card in the same slot. Too bad that both the Device Manager panel that panel management of network connections, all information is completely hidden.

The result is that you can not uninstall it back to the old card, it let alone see the old settings of your network connection. If we

try to enter the same access network parameters for the new card, you'll be told that the card is already using another ...

how to solve the problem:

The trick is to display the hidden devices in the system.

Here is the procedure very simple:

  1. From the Start menu, click Run.
  2. Type "cmd" without quotes, and press Enter
  3. Type "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices = 1" without quotes and press Enter
  4. Type "start devmgmt.msc" without quotes and press Enter

will open this point the Device Manager.

From the menu "View " (top right), turn on "Show hidden devices .
Now you can find in your old NIC card (which will have a semi-transparent icon).

Now you can safely uninstall!
