Uninstalling Nvidia killed my internet

So for the last few days I've been racking my brain trying to solve a huge issue I created. I was upgrading from my old nvidia card to a ATI one. I uninstalled all of the drivers for nvidia manually and through driver cleaner. Then I got the craziest errors...

I first noticed I could't connect to the internet:

Then my firewall went crazy:

I took a look at my drivers and this is what it looks like:

After much research, I'm fairly certain I uninstalled a nvidia chipset that my motherboard needs. Here is the exact computer I bought:


And the motherboard:


I decided to try and download this Mainboard driver:


But now my network looks like this:


Could it be that my motherboard has an Nvidia chipset? And I uninstalled it? If so how could I get it back? I actually tried a system restore and that didn't work.

So sorry for the bother, but I have tried everything I knew of and researched heavily. I had no idea uninstalling nvidia drivers would screw up my system so bad. I've started to lose hope. Thank you for your time.

Hi Glitzer, sorry for the delay offering assistance.
Many branded name computers have their own specific drivers for a product so unless you are directed towards Nvidea, ATI or Realtek as examples you should always use the drivers at the products homepage, in this instance they can be found halfway down the page to the right Support for this product Software & Driver Downloads
For best results download and install the drivers one at a time and be sure to uninstall the previously installed drivers before each install to avoid conflicts, good luck and let us know how it goes or if we can help.
