Windows 7: Intel LAN Card - Cannot start (code 10)

Intel LAN Card - Cannot start (code 10)


Earlier today while gaming my Corsair Cx500 power supply failed shutting off my pc and forcing me to replace it with a Corsair Cx750m power supply. Upon rebooting my computer I noticed that I didnt have internet connection and that a hardwired connection was not available under adapter settings forcing me to use the built in wi-fi adapter for now. Under Device Manager my Network card which is a "Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection" said the following "The Device cannot start (code 10)" I have been dealing with this for about 5 hours now and have tried multiple methods which I will mention below.

Asus P8Z77 - V
Corsair 32G Ram
Gtx 770
Intel i7 - 3770 @ 3.50GHz

Methods used to attempt a fix:
Uninstalling and reinstalling with latest drivers
Reinstalling drivers from original motherboard disk (back-dating)
Disabling and re-enabling
Total restart, unplugging cord and all
Uninstall, then a registry clean, re-install

So not im wondering if when my computer turned off suddenly earlier because of my power supply failure if that possibly broke the ethernet adapter. Anybody know of any solutions?
