Default drivers disappeared

I was moving my computer around so i had to disconnect all the cords, and then reconnect. When i turned my computer back on, my internet wouldn't work, but all my lights on my cable modem were on. So i called the internet company, and they said that somehow, all my drivers uninstalled itself or just disappeared. Is there anyway i can get it back?? Is it hiding in my computer somewhere??

Reinstall them. I doubt that they 'uninstalled' themselves, but they may be corrupted.

Use the CD that your ISP sent you. If you don't have one, download them (on a different computer, of course) and burn them to a CD.

Another option: Do you use USB to connect your modem? If so, try a different plug. If you use an ethernet cable, try a different cable. Also try blowing out the sockets of the modem and your computer.
