Exclamation My computer doesn't communicate with ethernet cable now...

I updated my NVIDIA drivers, and it told me it had to uninstall the previous versions installed on the computer. It then installed a newer version of the NVIDIA Ethernet driver (I think thats what it was called...) and thats when it happened. It told me it was not compatible with my system and my internet icon at the bottom right changed to a Yellow caution sign...I knew that meant trouble >.>. So anyway, I been trying all day trying to download different ethernet drivers but I really don't even know what I'm doing honestly. Can someone please help me get my internet back on that computer? (Its the main computer in which we game on. xD)

Also! I just remembered. Upon getting the new NVIDIA update for my graphics driver, another hardware thing appeared.

"Other PCI Bridge Device"

I can't install it though considering I don't have access to internet since I got that update >.> so....I can't redownload that if that's what I need unless I knew exactly where to get my file. I will put it on a flash drive and transfer it over, I just really think that I need that "Other PCI Bridge Device" for my internet to work again...

If anyone could help me get the "Other PCI Bridge Device" thing that I would need to install for my computer (Specs listed above) I would appreciate it. I don't know where to start looking.

Roll your system back by way of system restore. If that fails you might need to reinstall your OS to rule out any software issues and conflicts. But as mentioned try a restore first.
