Over the last week my laptop has had hours-long periods where I can't connect to the Internet. My laptop is a Lenovo E540 running Windows 10. None of my other devices have had any issues. I've run the troubleshooter as an administrator, deleted and reinstalled the network drive, turned off the antivirus, used all the netsh and winsock commands I could find and even reset the network, and nothing works. Three interesting things:
1. My computer can still detect networks, it just can't connect to them. When I click the Connect button, it tries to connect forever, and when I click off the box it stops trying.
2. When I ran the netsh int ip reset command, everything else reset just fine but it said "Resetting , failed" last and said access denied.
3. A few weeks before this started happening, the outside of the laptop separated from the screen in the bottom right corner. I'd post a picture if I could.
