Try the following.Right click on computer and select manage.A window will pop up and choose device manager from the left pane.From the Device Manager window click an icon on the top panel (if you hover your mouse the icon will say "scan for hardware changes").Click on that and let windows choose the relevant drivers for your network adapters.

Seems like corrupted installation of the Ethernet drivers.Try to uninstall the said drivers,restart your laptop and then go to device manager and repeat the step of "scan for hardware changes".

Hope this helps
