Jeff, click on System, Administration, hardware Drivers.
you may see that your driver is there. If so, it may need to be activated. Do so by following the instructions given if it is possible.
NOTE: If a driver is not mentioned in here , then you will not be able to activate it.

Can you help with this problem?
