I had a cheap Asus board where the onboard Realtek NIC disappear from the PC and nothing would bring it back.  (Windows wouldn't detect it, all the lights on the socket / the network port were always black.)  I finally broke down and installed a PCI card.  (Wasn't even able to disable the old card in the BIOS.)  After installing the PCI card the onboard card suddenly decided to reappear / start working again.  I was then able to remove the PCI card and the onboard NIC hasn't vanished again...  Was really odd.
