Windows 7: Compaq Presario CQ62 WiFi not working

Compaq Presario CQ62 WiFi not working

I have been working on a friends laptop for a couple days and can not get her wireless card to see networks. It has internet as long as it is hooked by ethernet. Its a compaq presario cq62 running windows 7 64bit. There are no yellow question marks in device manager, and I have downloaded all the drivers for the network adapter (I believe). Under network adapters it just has:
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated
