Hey hawkin,

Try to update the drivers for your LAN card. Or, if possible get an external card and plug the cable in that and check.

agreed. +1 for archer. If the lan card is internal see if you can somehow update the drivers via the windows internal driver catalog. Also you might try going into windows device manager and uninstalling the ethernet port and let windows re detect it. That may word.
