I also should note that I removed the card and it will not revert and I do see a green light when I plug my Ethernet into my computer

It'd be helpful if you gave us some information about the PC.

It sounds like something has gotten messed up with your NIC (network interface controller). I suppose that there's a slight chance that limited PCI-E (PCI Express) resources could disable the NIC if you switched from onboard graphics to a discrete card, but you didn't even specify whether that is what you did.

If you go into Device manager, what shows up for the network controller?
