Hi Experts

I received a IBM T61 that needed a rebuilt.Backed up the data.Installed OS and all the drivers.Copied data back.I then noticed that the on board network card is not listed under device manager.Every other device is installed and device manager does not show any unknown devices.
I have checked in the bios, the nic is enabled.I have checked show hidden devices under device manager, still no luck.Tried windows updates etc.

you can also try to reset the bios, or check if an update is available, and install it.
