Hello,

 

First time posting on here but looking for help. My wife has an Asus laptop that if not connected to wifi works. When activating the wifi button it connects then reboots. Do not know enough about computers to really fill a thimble, but i know enough to try to and fix it. Again... when i turn on laptop and use the switch to disable the wifi connection it stays on...when i connect to wifi, it connects for a few seconds and then reboots..

 

If i leave the wifi on through boot and gets to windows screen it will connect and reboot on its own.. any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance...

 

PS no warning windows or anything to tell me what might be wrong... just simply reboots and reboots...

I'd recommend checking to see if there is an update to the wireless drivers.

Either connect it with a cable, or use another machine and USB drive or burn to CD.
