Due to a power surge, I have lost a NIC and need to replace. Since I have never owned a 64-bit OS before, what should I be looking for in the market for replacement compatibility? I am noticing a lot of manufacturers have not updated their drivers to 64-bit so far.

That is what you need to look for a nic card for winsta 64 bit.
I found a link from usrobotics' website. This shows their products supported Operating systems like Win Vista 64bit. Click here. Just to the wired networking NIC.

Check the compatibility of the driver with the OS version:Windows 8 (32 or 64 bits), Windows 7 (32 bits or 64 bits) , Vista (32 b, 64 b), XP (32 bits , 64 bits). You should try to use the software that shipped with the printer. When installing, choose local printer (USB), or Network (Ethernet cable, or Wireless).

I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.

Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.
