and welcome to TSF.
Did you try Load Default Settings, or something similar, in the BIOS?
Next thing to try, pull your ram modules and leave them out for a while, ten minutes to half an hour, some report that its taken longer.
Put the ram back and boot up, see if the adapter appears.
If this works, let me know and I'll post instructions to stop the issue recurring.
Sorry, just noticed you said you tried removing ram sticks. How long for though? Maybe try leaving them out a little longer?
