My device manager does not show a network card under network adapters. I cannot find in bios if network is turned on.

Plug the cable in, connect it to a router that has set-up internet.
If the PC goes online, it's working, otherwise it, um, isn't. :)

If it is not showing up in device manager the BIOS is going to be the first place to check to ensure that it is enabled.

Check HERE for your model and look in the manual to find where the network adaptor settings are located at in your BIOS.

If it is enabled and activated and the OS still does not recognize the device I would suspect a faulty network adaptor, which unfortunately is most likely attached to the motherboard which would have to be replaced.
