First you want to make sure the pc is even powering it and it is discovered. Restart your computer, right at boot hit F2 or DEL when the pc logo shows (first thing you see) if you cannot get into your bios refer to your manual. When you get into the menu, use the arrow keys to scroll around, enter selects information, escape backs up a screen. Very simple interfeace, just browse around in all the tabs/menus until you see details about devices, or integrated peripherals. The page will show information about your wireless card, the brand, model, mac address, and enabling/disabling and not all the features may be available on your model. Make sure you can find that information in the bios. If you find it or not, continie to boot windows byt hitting escape a few times and choose save without changes. You get a reboot and windows will start again. when you get to the desktop click Start>Run Type in the text field: devmgmt.msc
this opens the device manager. Scroll down until you find network devices. expand the + by clicking on it and it will show devices in that category. Make sure you can find your wireless card by brand and model in that tree. Make sure it doesnt have a red x next to it or a yellow icon. if it has a red X right click the device and choose properties. From there choose the option near the bottom, its a drop down menu, select "Use this device"
If it has a yellow icon or any other icon, go into the same properties menu (right click) and email me the message in the info area in the middle of the properties page.
