Lately, it's been running like crap. The whole computer would freeze in the middle of just simply browsing the internet for no apparent reason. This has been going on for a few months now.
Well, last night, it happened again. Except this time, when I rebooted, the computer would just sorta sit on the initial screen where Vista was loading. No matter how many times I restarted, it would not get past this point. I was tired of the computer running like crap, so, I decided to pop in the Windows Vista installation disc that came with the laptop and install a clean copy.
Now, I can't connect to the internet. It's not recognizing my router, or any other internet connection available for that matter. I've scoured some internet help forums and the explanations just go over my head. People with similar problems were told they needed to "reinstall the drivers." That's all well and good, I just don't know how exactly to do that.
When I try to connect to the internet, it tells me "Windows cannot detect any networking hardware."
Can some kind soul explain to me in a dumbed-down way, what I need to do to get online? I'll buy you dinner if we ever run into each other in real life
