Re: Laptop problem.

Now that the install is stable, can you download the free version of MBAM and run a scan ?

Re: Wireless access not working

The power jack can sometimes go on laptops but from the sound of things - whoever did the replacement for you doesn't have seemed to have done a very good job.

Re: Laptop problem.

You'll probably need to boot up into the recovery console cmd prompt to perform a chkdsk /r but it may come back okay after a power shut down.

When a device is disabled in Device Manager, it will still be listed but will have a black downward pointing arrow next to it.
