you need to install drivers for your network card ,

hiya mate sorry for delay,its a pals machine,says tried that several times,cheers

What's brand/model is the computer?
Does it have an integrated network card or is it an add-on card?

caperjack is right -- you need drivers. When your friend said he already tried that, was the driver installation successful? Were there any errors?

integrated card,no errors installing drivers,everything in device manager ok,just no idea why they not showing,cheers.

What is the brand and model of computer?
Do you have the model of NIC as well?

My Network Places folder

wouldn't be any in there unless he had setup a network with other computers i do thin

My Network Connections,

now there should be at least one here ,

tell him to open internet options in control panel,open up connections tab ,and setup a internet connection
