Today i turned on my laptop to find that it wouldnt connect to my wireless router and showed up as local only. Now this was a regular thing that i eventually was able to fix, but today ive tried everything and it just doesnt want to work. I then tried to connect my phone via usb to use as a modem. The computer will detect the phone and charge it, but it does not communicate with it and the phone does not show options of how to connect to my laptop, like it usually does. Tried my external hardrive also, did not connect. So i had a look at my device manager and it shows that my IDE controller isnt working (yellow exclemation mark). It says the driver couldnt be loaded as it may be corrupted or missing.
Does this link with the recent problems my laptop is having? What can i do to fix this?
