is my motherboard dead?

Hello, i have had this problem for about 4 days now and i can't seem to find an answer for it or no one else has the same problem

i start up my computer (newer one) there's a red "x" over the connection even though my internet is fine if not excellent i troubleshoot it says "you need to install drivers for your network adapter"

i click on update drivers then this new message appeared

"Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device"
"windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it"
(network adapter name here)
"the system cannot find the file specified"

i load the drivers and utilities disc for my motherboard (MSI GF615M-P33) nothing happens all of it is installed, i try MSI website nothing happens, i tried resetting my CMOS battery and nope still will not install the drivers any ideas? thanks

A lot of times if you have a windows updated driver, it will only be able to install or update from the same set of driver signatures.

Try running windows update.
