When i open Device Manager i can not see my network cards.
Using IP config i see my Intel Pro cards. I cannot ping any server in my network. and i'm not able to access the network cards configuration and even to re/install or upgrade the driver.
Simple restart, no update or hotfix applied

Can you see them if you choose on the menu bar of device manager "view" / "show hidden  devices"
If so try removing, then reset TCP/IP at a command line using:
netsh  int  ip  reset  c:\reset.txt
Then re-install.

I get this errors in the event Viewer
Event ID: 32777 LSASRV: LsaSrv
The LSA was unable to register its RPC interface over the TCP/IP interface. Please make sure that the protocol is properly installed.
Event: 12291 / Source: SAM - Desc:SAM failed to start the TCP/IP or SPX/IPX listening thread

Un-familiar with those events. Event ID.net has the following to say, if you havn't seen it already. Interesting the first comment by Olexandr A. Bilyk  applies to both of your errors, 32777 and 12291
