I was using the internet to send emails when suddenly the connection was lost and the wireless icon in the bottom right changed from connected to - no networks found.
Immediately I checked my other devices (iphone, other laptop) and they still worked fine, still connected.
I then turned off my internet anyway just be sure it wasn't the router - sure enough everything else fine - but laptop still says no network.
So I then try and reset the network card, first by putting flight mode on and then off again.
Then by trouble shooting - says cannot identify the problem.
Panicking slightly by that point, as I have only had this laptop for 3 months - I then went to device manager and disabled and then re-enabled my wireless network card.
It now says there are no drivers installed for it - despite the fact that when i ask to update drivers it says current ones are up to date
I now have system restore running to try and erase my stupidity, but it's been at least 20 minutes now and it hasn't done anything.
