Hello everyone,
First time posting on here so here it goes. was on the internet the other day, then had a blue screen error, of which i made no note of. restarted my computer to find that my wireless icon had disappeared fromk the taskbar.

Went into device manager, deleted the driver, reinstaslled the hardware, but to no avail. still sitting with a yellow exclimation above it.

Anyone with any ideas??

Thanks in advance for your help.

It sounds like a hardware failure. Check your system logs carefully around the time of the bluescreen and see if anything was reported. The wireless card is usually a plug-in unit that can be replaced, and sits on an internal PCI bus that was probably reported as the cause of your bluescreen. It sounds like you have taken all of the normal remedial actions, so it's probably down to replacing hardware at this point.
