I have a Dell latitude d600 that has been plagued with problems since I received it. It had the internal wireless card but since I got (and defeated) the blue screen of death it no longer reads that it is there. I need on the Internet to update, but I don't know how to go about fixing the wireless card first. Is there a way to reactivate it? Or maybe some drivers on a flash drive to install? There is nothing important on the computer itself but I hate to think I spent the money on something that can't be fixed. Any suggestions?

Thank you

Check the Device Manager to see if there is a yellow ! or red X next to the Network Adapters.
If there is a yellow ! right click on the device and see if it installs the driver (possibly a generic Windows one).
If not download the driver to a thumb drive and install it, drivers available @ http://search.dell.c...=False&~ck=anav
Let us know if this resolves the issue.
