My guess: if you call emachines and start talking about warranty they'll say that it must be a virus or so, so please
1. Do a system restore back to when it still worked.
2. No luck, then start go back to factory settings from recovery DVD or recovery partition.
3. Still no luck? Than it MIGHT be broken.
So why not make a backup of all your personal files (just in case you didn't) and start with #1.
Hi, I have had my new emachines D525 laptop with Win7 for about 6 weeks. It has run very well with my wireless router and with devices plugged into the USB ports until this week.
This may be 2 separate issues but I will explain both in case they are related. The laptop was shut down and the wireless router was turned off over night. When I tried to log on in the morning, it had some trouble finding our home network connection (which is the only one we've ever used). Restarted the system and it worked fine for the day. Next day it did it again, I tried to re-install my network and it is "unsuccessful". It asks for my d-link routers pin number which is on the back of the router and I've double checked the number 100 times and it tells me wrong pin. Other times it doesn't give me a reason just says unsuccessful. Troubleshooter has not been successful either. I can log on-line but it won't let me set up the security which I obviously need.
Today my mouse stopped working, says the device is unknown, same with printer. I have all the current windows updates, I tried restarting and plugging them back in. Now, half the time it isn't even recognizing that something is plugged in. Troubleshooter "does not recognize there is a problem with the device"
Sorry for the long post but lots of things are going wrong suddenly. Any help would be appreciated for one or both of my problems.
Thanks in advance!
