Windows auto updated recently but two updates failed -- both for my Linksys wireless adapter. At the same time the adapter quit working (wouldn't detect networks including my own wireless router). Did diagnose/repair and got this message: network cable unplugged. Did all of the power down of cable/wireless/adapter restarted computer, etc.
Tried to go back to a previous restore point before updates -- failed, said I didn't have restore point on this computer. I abandoned that plan.
Went to adapter manufacture to check for whatever update microsoft said I needed. Found none for my adapter.
Tried to reinstall driver from manufacture CD. Install program wouldn't let driver install said to contact manufacture.
Removed adapter from hardware list and reinstallled with original driver from CD. Success!
now when I boot up or restart computer I get a message that Windows needs to install the driver in order for my adapter to work -- but it is already installed and working!
How can I or where can I find how to turn off that message. Or what do I need to do so that it doesn't hang at that point.
Thanks for any help.
I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to your question, but there are times you can find the answer by searching Microsoft knowledge base.
