Lately, i've been having some difficulties with my laptop ( Acer Aspire 5742 )
Periodically, I lose my wi-fi connection as if the network card has stopped working. On the system tray, the icon showing network connection is grayed out and has a little red X over it, however it says " Not Connected - Connections Available " but then when i click on it to display the available connections - it shows none of the wi fi connections usually available in the area and i'm left with no choice but to reboot the laptop.
The issue occurs mostly when I lift the laptop from the desk to move it somewhere else giving me the idea that there might be something physically loose inside that i'm disturbing ? Is the network card physically a part of the main board or is it removeable ? I'm not entirely sure this is the right line of thinking though seeing as how it seems to be fine after a reboot !
Any ideas what might be causing this issue ?
Many thanks for your help.
