Get your original motherboard driver disk and run it to detect and install devices that are on your motherboard
Let it "autorun"

Have you tried rolling back the driver? If you had it operational you may be able to retrieve everything with a System Restore or uninstalling the driver and network adapter in Control Panel. If you have CCleaner and Drivesweeper I'd run those removing anything associated with network. I'd say download them if you don't but you probably can't get on the net w/o a network card.

Okay I can't roll back any of the drivers, and i deleted everything with network. I don't have a restore point so is there anything else i can do?

hi chasemo you could try a repair install Repair Install you will not lose any of your files or programs

Pebbly is right, w/o a restoration point and the inability to roll back or load a driver your best bet is to do a repair install following the link Pebbly left.

okay i tried the asus drivers and i tried to do a install repair but it never gave me the option it wouldn't even let me do a full re-install. I changed my boot options and did boot from disk and with the windows disk and the repair disk it searches for windows versions and takes me to the system recover options.

i think all i need is the network controller driver for windows7

Try to see if you can use recovery manager to install the individual drive it had factory installed. Should be in advanced options.
