Have you gone to HP's support website and dl their LAN drivers for your PC's make and model number?

If you are still having trouble and need to identify your specific NIC card then I suggest this program to help:


Under Hardware tree look under devices and see if you can locate your NIC under other category or Network adapters. I use this program often to he identify unrecognized devices.
