Realtek Network Connector Gone Due to Windows 7 Deep Sleep Mode

Hey there.. I am new to this community so i hope someone can help me.

As i've mentioned in the title my Realtek Network connector is missing and win7 cant locate it.This happened after my computer went into sleep mode for some odd reason.

And whenever i try to re-install my driver it says:

"The RealTek Network Adapter/Controller was not found.
If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled Please Plug the Cable"

So how can I get it back?

I know there are other posts about this BUT THEY HAVEN'T WORKED FOR ME.

So far i've tried

-Removing my RAM for 10 mins and after that for another 1 hour
-Reseting CMOS from Motherboard
-Re-Installing Windows.



PS: My Motherboard's model is : GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S2V-B3 with
1 x Realtek RTL8111E chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)
