Windows 7: Windows 7, network adapter problem

Windows 7, 32 bit
Windows 7, network adapter problem

Internet was working just fine until today, I run troubleshoot and it says: Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter. I downloaded Intel's PROwin32 driver, during installation it comes to a point where I get this message: Cannot instal drivers. No Itenl(R) Adapters are present in this computer. I cannot scan my computer online as I have no internet connection on it. I saw many people had similar problem but either I am rather stupid or none of their solution quite worked for me.

Enclosure Type: Desktop
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1 32 bit
Processor: 2.40gh Intel Celeron G530 64bit ready, Multi Core(2)
Main Circuit Board: Board: H61M-P23 (MS-7680) 3.0
Network Drives: none discovered

Any Idea?

You want the Atheros Network Driver. Go to the MSI support site for your board HERE and download the one for your OS
