My hard drive crashed. i bought a new one and formatted it and installed windows, and some software, including my wireless card (Netgear). Everything was fine and great again. Then i moved to a new house. when i turned on the same computer, having done nothing except pack, move, unpack & setup. i got internet access for about a minute then nothing. Rebooted, etc., all the usual stuff. When i checked the device manager, there was an exclamation mark in other software for a 'Network Controller.'
The adapter was fine (using it now on this computer) but i bought another, spiffy adapter (Netgear Rangemax Next) anway, installed it and everything was wonderful again...until i turned it off and the next morning turned it on again.
Device manager still wants that d__n network controller. i reinstalled windows. i reformatted the drive and reinstalled window. All to no avail. It still wants that d__n network controller. i have searched the internet, posted on boards, and am distraught at this point.
CAN ANYBODY HELP A GRRL!?!?!
i need internet access and the computer is largely useless to me without it. Pleeez help.
