My computer has been crashing and having various issues for the past week or so. While this was happening I reinstalled the BIOS (The same version I already had) and on restart my Ethernet wasn't detected.
The main issues right now that I can't figure out how to get the Ethernet working again. I have tried reinstalling the Realtek LAN drivers but that didn't fix it and I'm completely out of ideas.

wat to do?

What would reinstalling windows do compared to just reinstalling the drivers? I don't want to reinstall windows.

It gives everything a fresh start, if it had problems after windows reinstall its a hardware fault

Is there anything else I can try before I do this because I've got so much stuff and it will be such a hassle to lose everything

Never mind, I booted the computer in safe mode and reinstalled the driver and it works.
