Windows 7: After installing Windows 7 on desktop - message says -install a driver

After installing Windows 7 on desktop - message says -install a driver

hi - I have installed Windows 7 32bit on our church desktop but when I try to get on the internet it tells me "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver."

I took the side off the hard drive and saw the name Maxtor - I used the church's new laptop and googled Maxtor (which is now Seagate) and found I could download a new driver but since I can't access the internet on the desktop and don't need it on the laptop any help you can give me as to how I get the new driver installed on the desktop would be appreciated.

That is a HDD only.

I'm sorry but nothing looks like anything in the system specs link pictures and nothing appears to have names on them - I've looked around a couple of times but nothing is making any sense - maybe I need to take it to an expert? I mean an outside physical expert as opposed to an online expert like you
