a) didn’t have either no money or a ride to the party
Either....or is the correct usage
b) had neither money nor a ride to the party
Correct usage Neither...nor, Keep 'B'
c) didn’t have neither money or a ride to the party
Neither.... Nor missing- eliminate
d) had no money nor a ride to the party
Same as (C)
e) had either no money or no ride to the party
Either.. or correct usage But the sentence is awkward.

Go with 'B'
