Windows 7: New (to me) laptop not able to connect to network at all

New (to me) laptop not able to connect to network at all

Just got a refurbished Dell latitude e6410, installed 7 pro on a SSD and now it will not connect to the internet. It says "windows did not detect any networking hardware", when clearly I am using the wireless connection to currently type this message on another computer.

I need a break this month, please tell me there is some simple problem for this (yes the switch on the side is on) and that there is not something faulty with the laptop or I might blow my brains out
