First of all, I'm hardly gifted when it comes to technical knowledge, which is basically why I'm posting here in hope of other, and more knowledgeable, people to help me out with my problems. Secondly, I'm using a new laptop bought under 2 months ago meaning that I'm not all too familiar with it, nor am I familiar at all with MS Vista either, so that really haven't helped me out.
Anyway, I'm using a HP Pavilion 9500 Notebook PC and running Microsoft Vista Home Premium.
I'm not really sure what happened though. I was on the computer as normal, running mIRC and MSN Messenger as usual, playing World of Warcraft and the connection just fell out. Now this is a normal occurance which I didn't think much about since we had quite a lot of storms going on this weekend, so I figured the connection just fell out due to the blizzard. So after an hour of waiting for the connection to return, I just shut the computer off and trod off to simply sit down and read while I waited for the storm to settle.
When I came back, this awaited me:
It's in Norwegian, so it might be a tad hard to understand, but that's basically the units in my network card after I checked it in unit-management (or whatever the english term for it is), and as you can see, 12 out of 13 got issues.
When I click the properities of each single one, it says something like "The unit is not working as intending because Windows can't download the necessary drivers for this unit. (Code 31)" (translated from norwegian).
So I tried to download new drivers, but either I got the wrong ones or it didn't work, because the problem didn't fix itself.
So I have a few questions really.
1: Is my wireless network-card working or is it infact broken and that's causing the problems?
2: If the network-card is working, what is the issue and how can I fix it so I can access the internet again?
3: If I have to find the right drivers, where would I find that? (I tried googling for it, going to the Intel-website to find the right ones, but I must have gotten the wrong ones, so which drivers would I need? Links would be great.)
4: Is there anything else I should look into?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. :-)
