I have a HP tx1000 notebook running Microsoft Vista

I recently moved to a new apartment and have had issues with the network adapter ever since. I believe my microwave was interfering with the wireless card because I would lose my internet connection every time I used the microwave. I would then have to restart the computer in order for the card to identify available network connections.This went on for a couple of weeks until the wireless card stopped working all together.

Now, my device manager does not identify any network adapters in my computer. This contunued even after I tried reinstalling the drivers to the card from the HP website. It appeared the driver was installed successfully but still no network adapter in the device manager.

The HP rep said she thought my motherboard was broken? Everything else seems to function properly on the computer though.

Any suggestions, what makes this so frustrating is that my HP warranty expired 3 days ago!!!

Please help, I'm out of ideas with this.

So, should I assume that the internal card is fried and useless?

My System


Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
  1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
  2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
  3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?


Let's see this as well.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

why i just told you that the wireless card does not show up in my davice manager, the only thing that shows up in network tab in davice manger is the hard wired network card now like said i don't need that one i want to get my gf wireless working again so whats i matter if i don't do what u wanted? i just told you what the prob is, so why look for a prob in davice manager that does not show up? i just did a system recovery insted and it still does not show up under davice manger and still won't work theres seems to be a prob with something on the motherboard a burned out chip or something cause if i do a system recovery it should work but it does not.
