Windows 7 not detecting Wireless card

So, i had this problem a few weeks ago when i was on windows 8 and i changed something in the bios and it started working but i changed to windows 7 a few days ago and i had the same problem again so i have been changing everything i can in the bios to try and get it to work but it doesnt, i have installed all drivers from my motherboard and i tried to install the tp link driver but it just says that it cannot detect a card and one should be put in.

This other Card you tested do you know if it was working ? .. If it is more than likely you have a Motherboard fault ...

Is there a thread for the issue when it was on Win8?
