Windows 7: No Driver for Network Adapter?

No Driver for Network Adapter?

I was running my computer on Windows XP and it more or less crashed on me so I decided it was time to upgrade to Windows 7.
I did a custom load and everything and it is loading fine for the most part but I cant seem to get an internet connection. I'm using a LAN and the same ether net cord plugged into the same outlet gives my laptop connection no problem but nothing for the desktop.
I tried everything I can think of but with no internet connection how am I supposed to get the drivers I need?
If anyone may have a solution to my problem I would be in your debt.

Welcome to SF, Exemer! You will need to provide a specific name/model to go along with Alienware.

You will need to download the driver from another computer, save it to CD/DVD or usb device, and load it from there.

It is one of the Aurora series, can't recall exactly what model.
Any idea what driver I will need and where to get it?

Make a copy of $msnfo32.nfo, zip it, and attach it here.

**EDIT** You should also be able to look at the back of your computer and see the model.

I found the model, it's an Aurora 3500-R4 but, I can't figure out where this $msnfo32.nfo file is at.

***Edit*** Maybe is is it?

Sorry, but the file ends in nfo, not exe.

You could also run SIW for hardware information:

Doesn't help much as using that doesn't return anything useful,

alienware Aurora 3500-R4 - Google Search

Wouldn't happen to have a service number tag on the computer somewhere would it? If so you can go here,

Dell - Drivers and Downloads

enter the service tag number and find out what is in it.

Good grief. I went to Alienware's site, and the download page does NOT list by model. This is the strangest thing.

Alienware : The Ultimate Gaming Machine

I forgot, they are sold by Dell. Thanks, Stormy. And, as Stormy indicated, we need a service tag #.
