Hi everyone,


I have recently bought (2 months ago) this HP Pavilion laptop. I had problems initially with the install and had to speak to the support at the store I bought the item from and it was resolved by re-installing Windows 10 which came built in.


Over the last couple of days I have started to have problems with the Wifi. This will connect for a couple of minutes (but not load pages properly on my browser) and then drop out. Other devices in the house are working correctly so I don't think it is my internet connection which is Virgin Broadband. 


I have tried troubleshooting with the Windows troublehooter and the built in HP troubleshooter with no success. I have also serached for an update for the driver of which there is none. I have also tried re-installing the driver and rolling this back and have had no luck at all. The option to turn the driver off to safe power has also been unticked in driver properties. Further to this I have done a virus scan.


Please can anyone help with this issue? Due to the fact it is fairly new I would suggest it is probably not a hardware failure. But I can no figure it out at all.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
