So for the last few days I've been racking my brain trying to solve a huge issue I created. I was upgrading from my old nvidia card to a ATI one. I uninstalled all of the drivers for nvidia manually and through a program called driver cleaner in safe mode. Then I got the craziest errors...

Here is the computer specs:

Here is the motherboard:

Here is the link to a driver I tried but failed...

But now my network looks like this:

Could it be that my motherboard has an Nvidia chipset? And I uninstalled it? If so how could I get it back? I actually tried a system restore and that didn't work. I guess that's what I get for uninstalling everything Nvidia in sight... Oh and the ATI card showed no signal anyway. Go figure. Wonder if my board just hates ATI.

So sorry for the bother, but I have tried everything I knew of and researched to the best of my ability. I had no idea uninstalling nvidia drivers would screw up my system so bad. I've started to lose hope and have thought about resetting to factory settings. Thank you for your time.

So sorry for failing with the links. I'll be more careful in the future. Thanks for the reply though!
