Hoping someone can help. I have an advent laptop running on Vista that we mainly use on holidays. Last year we were connected to a hotel service and it crashed. Since then the laptop started throwing up security warnings on every single website visited and refusing to load, it would crash and freeze and not it is refusing to connect to anything at all, even at home. It says there are some driver issues but I can't find out what is wrong (and to be honest I am not sure I would understand if it gave up lots of tech info) and I do not have a clue how to fix it. It says it is connected to my home wifi (virgin media) but it will not actually connect to anything at all and the troubleshooting gizmo can't repair the issues. It used to work just fine at home and another (annoyingly slow) laptop will work on the home wifi so I'm guessing that the home wifi is not the problem)
I have had this thing a few years and can't find any of the discs that may have come with it. Should I accept that is is fried and buy something else? We have another trip coming up and this is driving me crazy because I need to be connected when I travel.
Huge thanks to anyone who made it this far and will hopefully be able to offer some advice...even if its only throew it in the bin.
