Network adapter: Device manager can't find network adapter

The computer has an internal Marvell Yukon 88E8038 PCI ethernet adapter. All of a sudden after working for almost a year, the Device Manager does not recognize its existence. I have downloaded and re-installed the driver. No luck; non expected since the device is not there. I have tried all modes of "Add Hardware". I have tried "Application and Driver" recovery, but nothing of wired ethernet is even on the list as recoverable. I have tried system restore, but it reports nothing has changed. I would do a full system recovery, but I cannot face re-installing my applications.

I am not afraid to edit the registry if I knew where to look and what to look for.

Any ideas?

    Yes, the PCMCIA card works fine. This will really sound lame, but the socket is in the most in-the-way location on the notebook. How dumb is all this!

    Thanks for your help.

I have had these network adaptors go defective. In your laptop, it is probably built in on the mother board. This would be very expensive to fix. I would suggest to get a USB or a PCMCIA (laptop socket) network adabtor. Install the new adabtor with the software that comes with it, and most likely the new one will work.

Network cable unplugged

If it's saying that the network cable is unplugged then your drivers seem to be working. Check the back of your computer to see if the cable isn't plugged all the way in. If it is then go to your router and cable modem to see if they are both turned on and both working properly.
