Mhh, this is a problem. If you have a newer version of windows changes are that version will be able to detect the card. If it is a prefab PC you can also call the company that sold your friend the PC and ask which card is in there. As a last resort you can download some drivers of different manufacturers of the card type and try installing those. You might even try out some of the names on your friend as see if those ring any bells.

I usually write all I can about NIC and then google for driver.

You need one good PC with floppy/memory stick/CDR to transfer the driver to the PC.

I just have done reinstalling my windows, and I did search for all drivers and needed programs before I even started reinstallation. One of the things you learn with long history of reinstalls.

Yeah I make a CD with all the things I need for a reinstall like drivers for the motherboard, video drivers and all the little other things. It saves a lot of time.
