that info would definitely come in handy . for starters you could try updating the driver with windows update. failing that you may be able to install a generic driver. but obviously the real driver would be best so try and find out what model the adapter is

When i boot up the computer it notices that there is hardware added but it cant find the software for it. When i ask it to search the internet it doesnt even do a thing, just says couldnt install hardware.. :S

find the cd that came with your motherboard and install the drivers off that. In the event that you can't find that, open up your case and find the make and model of your motherboard and go to their website and find the drivers on their site. If its not a custom system, go to dell.com or whoever makes it and search the model number. Anything built on to the motherboard will have drivers supplied by the manufacturer so just follow that route
