Howszit kjellove? and Welcome to GtoG..

Based on what you posted, I'd try to boot from an XP CD and run a chkdsk /r from the repair option 1st. (Devices do not just disappear unless there's a reason). I'm not familiar with a medion laptop, but I would also check the heat exhaust and make sure that there's no dust build up. I have had cases where WiFi has just disappeared from the device manager with nothing appearing as an unknown device, (which meant the WiFi just died). The easiest solution there was to just install an USB WiFi antennae. If your notebook is still under warranty, that would be your best choice, because hardware just doesn't disappear and may be an indicator of something else more severe coming down the road.

Have you backed up your data recently? :)
