Wireless driver stops, strange Event Viewer entries

Hi everyone! I hope this post is placed appropriately, and if not, I apologise :)

My laptop (based on a Clevo P170EM) running Windows 7 has been acting strange for a few weeks now. First it was just the fingerprint scanner/sensor acting up on the user login screen. It kept saying over and over that the fingerprint was either insufficiently scanned, or not in the database - and my hand wasn't even near the thing! That was the first mystery, only solved by the workaround; disabling the sensor in the device manager.

Now in the last few days, Windows is stopping my wireless internet connection on startup, but only on the first bootup. Only by restarting can I get the wireless working again, and then I don't see the problem until I fully turn off the power. Second mystery.

At this point, I was thinking hardware problems, but after looking in my Event Viewer, I don't know what to believe. I see entry after entry suggesting that there is a problem starting some services, and some started services gets stopped. I don't feel any of these problems, except my wireless was not working, but I found them to be worth a mention here. I see all of these multiple times!

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

Bowser (not Browser)
Event ID: 8003

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer HG that believes that it is the master browser for
the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{34FDEDCD-6136-4095-9E8A-06EE8CBF8FE3}. The master browser is stopping or an election is
being forced.

Event ID: 219

Event ID: 37

The speed of processor X in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance
state for X seconds since the last report.

+ A lot of DistributedCOM errors related to all kinds of service errors.

Few notes:
The one about the "master browser" worries me a bit, since the computer mentioned is NOT a computer name I'm familiar with at all.
The registry leaking happens with a range of different processes.
Most worrying one to me: The message telling me 14 services failed to start on boot.

Any help at all regarding what to do is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
