Had to replace a HD & reinstall OS & have no LAN adapter present.

It shows as enabled in the BIOS

Driver installed with no error messages

Plugging in a cable shows activity, yellow & green lights flashing

Nothing present under device manager or in network connections

Not sure if this was an issue previously, as I was given computer with no HD & told to re-purpose it.

Any suggestions?
