Daughter's laptop disconnected from WiFi a couple of times last week. I've noticed the device Killer WiFi adapter was disabled - not of her own doing as hers is not an Administrator account.
Today the device was disconnected again, so logged with my Administrator account. Tried
3. Update drivers using assistant
4. Removed device from list with driver uninstall, followed with installing downloaded drivers from Dell
In all cases I get an "Windows can't start device. Error 10".
At the moment the laptop is connected via a USB WiFi adapter, so next step (after school hours) will be to do a Windows refresh and see if it fixes - if not then I will have to assume it's a hardware problem and go back to the retailer and claim warranty repair/replace (it's a five-month old laptop)
Any other ideas?
