If this is an on board NIC then you can only disable it in device manager.
What is the status of your INTERNET connection now?

OK, lets start all over.
Take the new NIC out, and uninstall the drivers.
Then put put the disc for your new NIC in the CD/DVD, reinstall the NIC, and reboot the computer.
Let Windows find the new hardware and install the driver from the CD.

Go here and download the driver to a disc.
if the folder is zipped you will have to extract it before the drivers will install.
Use the disc to install the driver to the computer that is not working properly.
