HELP PLEASE~~~ I had to install a new hard drive on my laptop. It has windows xp. That installed ok and now I can't get my wireless to work. It says "No active network adapters". It is not plugged into the ethernet, my home computer is. I usually just get on my laptop in another room with the wireless that is built into the computer. Any help would be appreciated.
Check in the device manager. There is likely a device conflict. If you know what kind of wireless adapter it is, you can simply go to the manufacturers website and download the driver. Or you can go to the manufacturer of your laptop and see if they have a wireless driver for your model.
