The computer was freezing up from time to time and then stopped working. It hung up when I tried to reboot. I went to safe mode, used msconfig to turn off all system services and start-up programs, rebooted but no change. Rebooted in safe mode with networking but all network connections are gone, the wireless adapter seems disabled but it does show in Device Manager. Interestingly, the sleep light on the laptop is lit. I opened control panel and clicked on Power options but nothing happens.
I downloaded Nortons emergency bootable recovery tool and booted via a USB drive. I scanned the laptop and it found a virus but Im embarrassed to say I didnt write down what it was (I foolishly thought I was done). I ran it again and it came up with nothing. There may be a log somewhere but I couldnt find it this morning. I have a feeling the virus did some damage before I removed it.
Can you help me repair my laptop? Get my wireless adapter back and resolve the power/sleep mode issue?
Thanks very much!
