Try removing it via the device manager and rebooting - hopefully Windows will recognise it and reinstall for you.

System Restore?

i rather not system restore because it was months ago before i removed it by accident and i sorted out my networking recently so.........

try removing your firewire card from the computer all together and boot without it,shutdown, then re-insert it in the computer and see if windows picks it up as new hardware on boot up
