Any tips of how to get my chipset drivers besides that then though?
Your board doesn't have Windows 7 drivers for it... soo.... new board? (which would inevitably lead to a new proc, etc. etc.)
Maybe I should, but why doesn't the networking work? because the only problem here is my networking. My integrated soundcard is working perfectly fine and so does every onboard device except the LAN devices (onboard as NIC). I know the mobo is old... But I do know that it's not too old as it has vista drivers and Windows 7 is build up from Vista.
BUT Windows 7 is NOT Vista. Sure it came from it but literally a ton of changes were made. It's possible Windows is corrupted. Try running "sfc /scannow" (no parentheses) in a command line window. And for that matter, a repair install from your Windows disc.

You could look in the bios and make sure your onboard NIC is disabled and try again.
I should have read your specs more closely, nForce4 chipset I believe. Hmmmm.
You could try these drivers http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_vista64_15.23.html
Your mileage may vary.
I think jellyman may be right since they were problematic with Vista as well. No
company can support legacy hardware forever, sorry.

Your post is very appreciated, thanks a ton! Because of that I found out that my OS currently has corrupted files. Right now I'm rebooting my PC for some repairs, hope this will work!

Sorry if I'm bumping this thread, but I felt like sharing this. What I've done was went into the BIOS and turned NV LAN off rebooted and as it booted up to Windows it still saw nothing so I rebooted my pc and turned NV LAN on and when it booted up Windows I just shut it down without checking if it saw my onboard NIC or not.

I cut off the power suply as I knew I wasn't going to use my pc until midnight (which is now) and guess what? My onboard NIC got detected again! I wanted to say thank you to those who replied to me and tried to help, but I was just wondering what might have caused it to disappear. If anyone knows feel free to tell me.

Thank you,
Trollius.

Good to hear! Who knew simply pulling the plug would fix it! Great to hear!
