Most likely yes assuming you have ruled out network cables, etc.
Since you state the device doesn't even show up in Device Manager then it sounds really dead to me.

For what a new NIC costs, I would just pick one up and call it a day. First figure out what type of PCI slots you have, then search for a NIC on Newegg or your favorite place / local place. I prefer Intel based NICs, but most anything will do. Best plan is if you use the 'egg, just check reviews. I imagine just plugging it in and booting up that Windows will find it right away. If it's really new, at most you'll just need to download the drivers from the vendor.
