Ok, I need help, I've turned my computer on today and it won't connect to the internet. As you can see my phone still connects and my parents computer's still ok. This leads me to think it's my computer, I know my deductive skills are on fire lol.

I've updated my drivers, which is what Windows helpfully suggested and it's still not working. It's not even showing up on the list of available networks. Then again neither is next doors. I've gone back to a restore point earlier in the week when I know damn well it worked, nadda. I'm now scanning it in Safe Mode but apart from some cookies I'm pretty sure I'm clean. I was logged on last night no problems. My computer hates me, it knows I wanna watch SPN.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Please this is driving me insane.

My BF suggests to use a cable to connect your computer with the internet and see if that works. If it does he says there's something missing in your networks settings.

Thanks hon, I'll give it a go after it finishes scanning. It means I've gotta unplug it all and move it downstairs, something that'll have to wait until the girls go.

I haven't got a clue, but I'll join you in the land of computer woes. I had mine on this morning and it did a few updates and I read a few things and started to write a post for RP and halfway through the stupid laptop plinked off.

It's driving me batsh*t! ~lol~ Counting down the days til the new one arrives...

Hope you can get yours working okay again, although pretty soon you won't need t'internets to chat with Evil. Hehe. \o/

That's why I steer clear of laptops, although the way things are going I hate desktops as well. My weekend sucks, I'm still waiting for the third thing to break :(

Can't wait til I come up, it's only a week tomorrow, OMG it's only a week tomorrow, I haven't planned what I'm bringing with me.

This happened to my netbook last year and some little part in it went and had to be replaced. It did fine if it was hooked up via cable.

And good grief I love the little background pic in the message box, how the heck did you do that?

computer woes are the worst! My sympathies.

NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOO I don't wanna have to replace anything *shakes moths out of purse*

The picture's yummy isn't it? The lovely [livejournal.com profile] eviltwin designed my LJ, the pics from her Smoke and Lightning verse.

So, what was the verdict? Is your computer working again?

Not yet. The IT guy at work's given me a couple of suggestions, it's just finding time and room to try them. One is to get some Ethernet adapters that go through the electrics ?!? but that costs so we'll see. I'm still waiting for my ISP to get back to me as well, they respond in 24 hours but I emailed them Sunday so that's bollocks basically. Oh well we'll see, it'll probably end up costing me :(
