So for a while now I've been running Windows 7 on my laptop before switching to Windows 10.
However, my laptop was originally on Windows 8 and then upgraded to 8.1 via the Windows Update. After a while I became fed-up with the splash screen whenever I opened anything and also the Metro card system didn't give me any benefits - generally it wasn't a great experience compared to what I was used to on Windows 7. But anyway...
I had an install disc for Windows 7 which I downgraded to and then realised that my WiFi adapter built into the laptop wasn't working due to a lack of drivers and Windows Update didn't pick up on this. After quite a bit of work I managed to track down the exact driver files I needed to get it working again and downloaded them from Broadcom (or their related manufacturer).
Following this driver install the WiFi card has been working fine ever since, though on the laptop's start-up it now comes up with the attached message.
My thoughts were that I would be able to upgrade to Windows 10 and the problem would sort itself out from there but unfortunately that hasn't happened, possibly because I decided to upgrade rather than doing a fresh install?
As I say the WiFi is working perfectly fine but the message on start-up is getting very annoying and also obviously slows down the start-up process while it attempts to find something which obviously isn't there.
Apologies for the long explanation but there was quite a bit to cover! Any thoughts on how I could fix this?
