You should get the service pack by simply use the windows update from within the start menu.

Simply run the microsoft update and install all available necessary updates.
You may have to run the update several times, until no more necessary updates are found.

I would open up device manager and see if you are missing any devices (simple PCI, unkown network controller, etc). Chances are you need to install the driver for your NIC card.
