Enter your device manager, and ensure that it shows your network card. If it doesn't, check the physical connection of the card (if you are using an add-in card), or that it is set to be used in the BIOS.
If it does show it, try right-clicking and uninstalling it, then restarting your computer.
If you need help figuring out how to get to the device manager, let me know.
