    "isn't showing up" means what? Surely, if you open up the case, you still see the thing? :p

    Check the Device Manager for any unknown devices. Also, some BIOSes list the PCI devices they find. You should see two network controllers in the list (right after POST, right before the bootloader).

    Try the NIC in another slot or in another computer just in case.
