Hello! my laptop has just recovered from a trojan virus (with help from this forum), and now i am experiencing that the buttons like the volume and wireless-connection is not working. This is very annoying, specially because i cannot connect to wireless internett because the on/off button(wireless network) is not working. Can someone help me with this problem?

caveman88 came into Chat and we were able to resolve his problem by reinstalling some drivers and the Launch Manager so this issue has been resolved. :)

Thanks to contributors above.

For those reading/searching this topic, here's additional information:
I've recently helped in the solution of a similar "after trojan" failure of keyboard functionality.
http://forums.pcpits...w...=152650&hl=

The machine was Dell Inspiron 1300, running XP SP2.
The solution was to reinstall Chipset Driver for: Applications - Dell QuickSet
http://support.dell..../...=WW1&osl=EN

Of course, you will need to investigate your own machine's manufacturer's website for drivers appropriate to your machine.
Also, please recognize that the specific loss of function in my thread relates to keyboard function to activate onscreen display for LAN and volume control, whereas this present thread appears to relate to LAN function itself.
There is ordinarily a separate chipset driver associated with LAN and other functions, such as graphic adapter, IDE channels, audio, USB, and the like.
You'll need to select the chipset driver corresponding to the problem function that you are experiencing.

Best Regards

I'll add some info here for those having the same problem.

caveman88 has a Norwegian knockoff of what I think is an Acer and we reinstalled an application called Launch Manager after reinstalling the chipset, wlan and sound drivers and cured his problem.

However it was pointed out (by sage5 in chat) that Deckards System Scanner showed c:\windows\system32\drivers\wbutton.sys was missing so this may have been the issue.
