If you can't find the restore disk, either download the needed drivers from the manufacturers site (such as Dell, Toshiba, Acer) or order a replacement copy. It's as simple as that. Maybe your mate can help you?
My notebook went wrong and it wouldn?t start, I couldnt find the re-store disk so i passed it to a mate who works in ICT and he to had to re-install it all.
He said he re-installed the wireless drivers as well but it doesn?t work.
(At this point id just like to say that there is no problem with the wireless router as im connected through another laptop to it and a PS3... The wireless switch on the laptop is also on)
When i try to connect to a network it comes up windows is connected to ''Network 4''. (Which is an ethernet cable that ive hooked the laptop up to so that i can come online)
It then says:
Windows cannot find any additional networks
View network computers and devices
Diagnose why Windows can?t find any additional networks (so i click on this)
It identifies that:
''Windows does not have a Wireless network adapter installed and configured''
It gives me the option to ''install wireless networking hardware, and verify that the correct drivers are loaded''
The options i am then given have been no hope at all. I have all windows updates up to date and i?m not sure where else i can go from this as i have very little experience in it..
This is the system information for the notebook:
OS Name Microsoft
