Sorry for the semi-derogatory title but my anger runs deep at the moment.
My dell xps 15z laptop was working fine until my wife for some stupid reason tried to reinstall Windows and erased my hard drive.
Here's my problem: The dam laptop works as if the wireless no longer exists. I dont have the option to connect to the internet wirelessly anymore--it doesnt recognize any networks at all. I went to my network adapter via device manager and it says its "working properly." Turned on the wireless of course at the start of course. I'm at a loss. Besides password protecting my laptop so that no retard can do this again (and short of taking the dam thing to the local Geek Squad agent) what should I do?
