My Internet Won't Work After Upgrading


I upgraded my PC with a new Power Supply and a new Graphics Card. I installed the new drivers from a disk, but after I restarted the comp I couldn't connect to any wireless networks, because there are none available. Is it possible I messed something up inside my computer? Or is there an easy way to fix this?

You're going to have to be more specific.

You still have the wireless card plugged in, I assume? Go look at the device manager and see if anything is up there.
Reinstall wireless drivers.

(Use the internet to find the latest versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

If you only installed graphic drivers I don't know what you could of messed up. Did you do reinstall of windows also? Do you have any ethernet cords laying around to see if that makes it work?

I guess I could have knocked the wireless card loose by accident, since it was my first time upgrading, I will check... I didn't reinstall windows, and I already tried using my Ethernet port which isnt working.

If you don't have the disks around for that card or the computer ethernet drivers your best bet is a USB drive. Do you have one of those you can use to transfer the files?

Very odd.

A USB key? burn a CD? There's a multitude of options.

What does the Windows device manager say about your wireless card? Is it a yellow triangle with a "!" in it? Does it even show up as being installed?

Whatever it's actually called it'll be under the "Network adapters" drop down. Just list what you've got.

Try installing the actual latest drivers for your new card (using your laptop to download them, obviously) rather than the CD ones.

Also, were you using on-board graphics before? (If yes, the new driver will most likely resolve the issue.)
