yea, check your device manager...
right click on "my computer">select properties>select hardware>select device manager..>now, look down through the list, do you see anything to do with network adapters? this should be your network card. click on the "+" symbol beside it, it should expand the list a bit to see your lcard. do you see any exclamation marks or question marks?
if you dont see it here, it may for some reason be shut off in the bios, let us know if so, we will guide you through it. if you do see an "X" on the network card after expanding it, right click on it and see if it says enable, if it does, click on enable (this means it was disabled) if you right click it and it says disable, (this means it is enabled).
try this and post back please
