where's my network card??? - Windows Networking

I have a compaq pc with a built in network card (not PCI). Although the l.e.d on the back is showing, device manager (in XP) indicates that no NIC is installed, and scanning for hardware can't find it either. How can i find out if the card itself is faulty, or get xp to discover it? (i've done the simple things like a reboot)...

    Check your BIOS.
    See if your NIC is disabled.
