Recently, my Desktop Inspiron 530s stopped connecting to the internet.


Under Network adapters there is a yellow triangle next to the "Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter #2."  Under Properties it says "This device cannot start. (Code 10).  


This problem began about a week ago.  


For some reason, the device was able to start this morning, but after about a half hour the problem started up again and now it again says the device cannot start.


I already downloaded the suggested driver for this computer from the Dell website and tried reinstalling it, but the same problem occurs.  


Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated?


Also, recently the fan on this computer has been very loud.  I've been told this is a hardware problem.  Could this have any impact on my network drivers?

You've tried updating drivers using device manager?


Also try MS diagnostic.
