Before the Windows installation routine begins, it takes inventory of all of the hardware available on the machine it's being installed on and then installs itself to run on that hardware. So, if you then take that hard drive out of that computer and plug it into another, more often than not it won't work, or work correctly, because the hardware is different.
Solution: Reinstall Windows.

Excellent, that should solve the problem.
As I stated above, since Windows 7 installs itself to run on the hardware it sees, if you then move that installation (that hard drive) to another computer, it probably won't work, or work right.

Okay, that's what we were all thinking. When Windows is installed a lot of things are configured for the system the drive is in. Moving a drive to a machine with different hardware may or may not work, more frequently not. A fresh Windows install should resolve your issues.

Are you sure you got the right driver? You should be able to download drivers from the part manufacturer's website. Shouldn't be any problems.

Use a different computer to download the correct driver to a USB flash drive.

Little nano USB WiFi adapters start at $6.59 with free shipping. I've had good luck with the EDUP and EDIMAX brands.
