Wireless not working on grandaughters computer but works on her sisters. I have now found the Virgin wireless installation disk. If I remove the wireless connections from the computer.Would it be Ok to install it again using the disc. can anyone see me having more problems trying it that way.
Or could i install it over the original connection.
Yes I should have said the laptop has a switch that you turn on for Wireless connection.using Virginmedia cable and vista standard. it will not pick up any wireless signals anymore and the HP Wireless assistant does not work.
Her sisters laptop is like that you have to press fn and press the F1 button.But this one has a slider on the front that you shift to turn the Wireless on.Used to get a wilan pop up asking to turn it on but can't seem to get that any more.
so the possabilities are that it is not turned on and that may be what the problem is.
well begger me.I have been trying to get the wireless connection to work for 2 days without any luck and just looked down and low and behold the blue light is on and the wireless connection is back. I just finished a scan with A squared and deleted a coolwebsearch problem.So not sure if that was the problem or not. It has done this before so not building my hopes up.But you never know.
Thank for your help.I will leave this open for another 24 hours to see if I get the problem back again or not.
can only think that it was coolwebsearch that was stopping it.Just rebooted and WLAn came up straight away and said connected.I am sure i removed that last week with malwarebytes.So running another scan to see if it has returned.
