I hope you guys can help me. Im not so good at solving computer problems and really need help on this one.

SO anyway i have an Hp L2000 special edition laptop with bluetooth and wireless capabilities built in. Now the other day i was playing the rainbow 6: 4 demo and i froze ( i think. my mouse stops working occasionally and i didnt think about checking the touchpad.) And when i turned it back on the little Icon that shows the computer with the radio waves coming out of it WAS GONE. I couldn't even get any iternet whatsoever. Now i own a Linksys SRX 200 wireless adapter. I dont think that has anything to do with it because its running fine. Now when i was looking for a way to solve the problem i went to the device manager.

I got the dreaded yellow exclamation point circle on the following items:

Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN
Ethernet Controller
Mass storage Controller
SDA Standard Compliant SD Host Controller

Now this is the second time i have had this problem. The last time all i did ( after reinstalling EVERYTHING and have all my files become unusable but still being on my Laptop) was to plug it into my comcast high speed internet and after a couple shutdowns and restarts it magically appeared again ! So i have been trying the same thing again but to no avail.

PLZ HELP ME!
