Error same IP address as another network card.

A PC had failed – major meltdown to the CPU.  I moved the hard drive over to the new setup, and installed the new drivers.  It worked, the operating system was Windows XP Pro. 

Start – Run – CMD
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
start devmgmt.msc
keep this window open, as you close it it reverts.

I then deleted the old “non existant” network card.
