1. The screen resolution is stuck on 800x600 and it cant be changed.
2. I cant turn on the WiFi.
On this computer i need to pres Fn and F3 to turn on the WiFi but nothing happens. The light does not go on and at the bottom right of my screen there is no network item. There usually is. I consider myself to know a lot about computers but I just can't fix this and it is driving me nuts. I have narrowed it down tho. When I go into Device Manager the only ting I find under Network adapters is Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20). It is working fine but that is for cables. Under display adapters I only get the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I'm not sure if there are suppose to be more but i know something is missing. When I scan for hardware changes I get a popup that say that the device software was nor successfully installed. Now the final thing I found out is under Other devices there are 2 listed.
1. Network Controller
2. Video Controller
Both of them have an yellow bubble wit and exclamation mark in them. If I try and update them I get a message that windows could not find driver software. I also can't install the VGA_Intel_188.8.131.5260 drivers because according to the driver the computer does not meet the minimum specifications. I figure that means that the computer does now know of these two parts.
I have tried to update ALL the drivers (the network drivers installed but still no WiFi. I have gone and uninstall the network and Video controller and reinstall it but that does nothing. I also installed everything I usually need for everything I do on the computer hoping something will help (like .NET, flash-player, Java and stuff like that) alto I knew it was useless.
Just a recap. No WiFi, won't turn on, cant find it.
No video controller. Can't install drivers. Cant change screen resolution.
Sorry for long read but when I help other people I want to know everything.
