Cannot detect network adaptor in my system.

Specs: Windows XP
I am having a Toshiba Satellite A105 - S 4114 with Windows XP, SP3. I was using the LAN & Wireless network adaptor without any problem. A week back Windows XP got updated & from then LAN & Wifi network adaptor are not getting detected.
In the device manage both the adaptors are not preset. If I add the adaptors from the ‘Add Hardware’ its getting added as Intel PRO/1000 PL network connection#2 & Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection#2 but its not working.

I am using the following adaptors with version (working):-
LAN network adaptor: Intel PRO/1000 PL network connection, Version

Wireless network adaptor: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection, Version

I tried to download the new drives for both the adaptors, but nothing is working.
Please let me know the solution

Thanks in advance,

Might try a restore point to a time before the update.
I guess you could check bios to see if it is possible to disable both lan and wireless. Device manager should "see" the adapters even if no driver. I guess it could also be that some motherboard driver is needed like a pci to pci bridge to access the lan components.
