Today when I started up my computer it blue screened about three times at the log in screen. After the third or so time I booted my computer with the last known good configuration. At first it seemed to work; everything seemed to boot as normal. However, I noticed that I could not connect to the internet. I went into the Device Manger and noticed a problem with my Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection. Under device status it states "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)" I have updated and reinstalled the drivers twice now to no avail. I do not know what the problem is. Can someone please help me out?
I was going to try a system restore, but somehow all of my restore points were deleted.
Note: I cross posted this here from the Windows 7 driver forum because I think the problem may be more suited for here. I hope I didn't break any rules.
