I've been having problems with my laptop since the last blasted Windows Media Centre update, tried a factory reset with very limited success, so my son wiped the bit of the drive with Windows on and installed XP Pro instead ( I don't of course have a Media Centre disk as the salesman said "..it repairs itself madam, you won't need one....)
Anyway, apart from this XP looking very old and clunky by comparison, it seems that my wireless capability has vanished. The Network Wireless Setup page only shows the mobile 3-Store connection I use when on the move, and the standard Lan setting which I don't use. I have access to wireless at my workplace.
In Device Manager, there's a raft of items with yellow exclamation marks - ethernet controller, PCI device, 3 x Flash Memory entries, SM Bus Controller and Video Controller. They appear not to be installed but I can't get them to install either from the XP disk or from the wizard searching the net.
I would be so pleased if someone could help as I use the laptop extensively for work and as I'm very newly self-employed, I'm losing money all the time it's not right.
