Dell Inspiron Network driver does not work after boot

by daisy_dude / August 31, 2010 3:30 PM PDT

Hello friends,
I bought my dell inspiron 1545 last and it was fine until a week ago, Now , the problem is , when ever i boot my laptop, it does not show the network icon active, then i checked the network connections , the local area connection was not there. i thought how can it get uninstalled all by itself .I then have to reinstall the driver every time i start the laptop, and then after installation i have to restart. Is this any kind of serious problem in my mother board ? O i need to change the network card module. kindly help.

Try rebooting your router, I know I have to do that about once a week for my dell to connect wirelessly. Good Luck. To Reboot just unplug your router and your high speed modem for about 10 seconds and plug them in again, after that you do not have to resatrt your dell it should connect.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
