Ok, my internet, on my laptop, will stop running from time to time. I think I know how I keep doing doing it, which is I'm applying pressure to a certain place, I tilt it wrong, or setting it down to hard, but I don't know what specifically could be causing this because I've only had this problem for a few weeks. What usually happens is I'll notice the f12 button's light has turned orange, and then i go to my Network Connection tab and see that there are no other connections available and the one I'm connected to now says Limited Connection. I Disconnect from that connection then it says there are no connection I run troubleshoot and after one run, sometimes 2, it will fix the connections and this message will show up.

Spoiler
So if anyone can tell me what's happening and how I can fix it I would really appreciate it. Sorry if this is a really simple and obvious problem but I'm still kind of an amateur with computers. Thank you for your time.

 

Update: Since I post this thread, I tilted my laptop once and the the screen turned blue and a lot of fast words flashed by, I saw the words "memory dump" and it restarted. This problem is obviously worse than I initially thought. I would really appreciate the help as soon as possible.

your wireless card inside your laptop could be faulty or need reseating,

 

looking in your event log will give you more information about why your system bluescreened...

If tilting your laptop caused a BSOD, and you have a persistent issue with your network connection, then you possibly have some loose wires.

 

Has the laptop ever been repaired before? Has any part ever been replaced?

I found the shutdown in the event log but I still have no idea what I'm looking at, what should I be looking for?

 

 

No, I've never had my laptop repaired or replaced any parts, but I am an idiot and I personally opened up my laptop to try and get a better clean of the fan because I had never cleaned it in the about a year since I bought it, so i could be the cause of it.

Might want to open it up again and make sure everything is tight...

Yeah, that sounds right. Clone4, opening up your laptop certainly doesn't make you an idiot. Impulsive, maybe, but not an idiot. These days, you can find service manuals online for virtually every laptop on the planet.  Anyway, laptop service isn't really difficult, but you need to pay a lot of attention to the details. Some of the connectors are easy to break, or connect insecurely; which I think is what happened on your machine. I'd find a manual for the laptop, and then disassemble the machine and check for any loose connectors. Gotta go with the majority here.

Great advice...

 

Also, I learned to repair computer hardware watching YouTube, it's a great resource for getting it done right the first time.

I use Youtube for guidance as well, especially when disassembling a laptop I've never worked on before.

 

If you know the specific model, say, a HP DV9000, then go to Youtube and search "HP DV9000 teardown" and you'll find videos that show every detail of the process.
