Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V - e1dexpress / code 10 issue.


Hi there, my Ethernet Connection has suddenly stopped working. When I look into device manager, it shows:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

{Operation Failed}
The requested operation was unsuccessful.

I have seen other people have similar issues and recommendations (delete firmware, reload) but no matter which way I do this, it just won't update and always defaults back to the current version ( 

When using Intel Pro Set, it says the adapter is disabled, whereas my device manager says it is enabled (with an issue flag). I need some guidance on how to resolve this as I am unable to use Ethernet. This is extremely similar to this issue reported on another thread ( but the fix there did not work.

Update: I have managed to clear the issue with a CMOS clear (jump method) on my Z490 PRO 4 motherboard. This resolved the issue and allowed me to fix the firmware upgrade issue. Recommend doing the same for those that come across the same issue!
