Windows 7: "Install a driver for your network adapter" ?!?!? lolwut.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
"Install a driver for your network adapter" ?!?!? lolwut.

Hello! I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) on my laptop... It came with Windows 7 Ultimate but my laptop was running a bit slow so i re installed it and now everything seems fine.. One problem though... The WiFi/internet is not working!! When i click to troubleshoot it tells me to "Install a driver for your network adapter. Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the drive." Problem is I have no internet ON the laptop so how can I even install/update it. I looked up this problem in the internet and it said something about device manager and what not.. I check my Device manager and i see a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark on it next to Ethernet Controller/Network Controller/PCI Simple Communications Controller.. Please help me get my internet back on my laptop!
