Missing Drivers on Aspire one D255E

Hello, I recently upgraded my friends netbook from Windows 7 Starter 32 Bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
Before the upgrade it could connect to the internet wired and wireless, Now it can't connect even if i plug in the Ethernet cable to it. I checked on the netbook and it says that it doesn't have any Ethernet Controller or Network Adapter installed
Any help?
