My toshiba laptop produced a blue screen quickly followed by a reboot. After login I now have a black desktop and a 'found new hardware' message asking me to install the driver for the WLAN. I've tried the Recovery CD that came with the laptop to see if Vista could find it on there but no luck. I've tried two differetn system resore points but on both occassions it did not complete. I can imagine that if I contact Toshiba they will say run the Recovery CD but that would mean having to back up all my data first. The taskbar icon next to the clock says the the laptop is not connected (which is not surprising). It used to connect to the internet automatically after login. I have checked that the Wireless Communication switch on the front of the laptop is switched on. Does anyone know of a way to install the missing driver or correct my problem, with using the recovery disc?
Thanks for that tip. System restore worked in Safe mode and now the laptop connects automatically after login with no driver message. Still got the black desktop but that shouldn't be a problem. Have to go out now but I thought I would let you know about the progress.
