Talking Re: onboard Network adapter not working

Have you tried re-installing the Windows XP x64 edition again to see if it works under there? If it does, then I would suggest that the driver has not been installed correctly or you need to get the latest one for the board. If it doesn't, and you are sure that it is enabled in the BIOS etc/cables are not broken, then maybe you have shorted out the onboard NIC. Perhaps reseating the motherboard may help if it turns out to be that.

Evacuate, in our moment of triumph? I think you over-rate their chances...

May be this can Help,

Probably NIC Drivers, look at the chipset's manufacturer site most manufacturers’ issue new drivers in the last week or two.
