Default Network adapter problems

I need help with detecting my network adapter. Well, it detects the adapter but just won't install it into the computer.

It happened to me on one day, I smelled smoke coming out from the power supply box. So I then unplugged all the wires and took out the power supply box trying to find out what's going on. Then later I plugged all the wires back in place, the computer can’t detect the network adapter for some reason. I tried everything I can to fix the problem. I found driver online for the network adapter but it still won't work. I even tried to put another network adapter that I have into the computer but it came up with the same result.

When checking in the device status, it said the following:
This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)


Computer Info:
Window XP Pro
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80 GHZ
512 MB of RAM
