Why WindowsXP does not accept the correct NIC driver?

    I have a serious problem with my PC.
    I had to format my disk and reinstall Windows XP (with SP2), but I can not
    get to in web because Windows thinks that my network card is of Asound, but
    its of Realtek.

    I tried doing update driver using the Realtek RTL8139/810X Family PCI Fast
    Ethernet Card driver on the device manager.
    I tried uninstalling the driver, and then letting Windows find it again.
    I tried downloading new driver from the Internet (using another PC).

    But came out Asound. Windows simply does not let me change the driver.

    I logged in with Administrator account.

    I talked with the my ISP service provider, and they also found that the
    trouble is with my NIC.

    How can I force Windows use the driver that has on a disk, and not the
    built-in Asound?

    Ok, it's working now.

    After boot to safe mode and removing the driver, and the restarting again
    and manually updating the driver to my specific INF file which I have with
    the NIC itself. And it's working.

    Thank you for you kind help
