My laptop is hp dv6000. It tends to run hot and after extended use it would shutdown. It does that quite often but never before that it made network adapter (hardware) unfunctional! Did sth sorted when the laptop shutdown?

The switch keeps showing the "off" status BUT i can manually turn on and off the adapter in internet options. I cant look for available networks. Right now im writing via ethernet port. Please help

(device manager doesnt say the adapter have a problem either... But under "other devices", 2 "base system device" with location "PCI bus 5, device 5, function 3" got error driver not installed)

try to uninstall the driver, then restart
after restart the rig will search for new driver, then install it and try again
check on the device manager, does it appear ok?
if it can turn on manually, i guess the hardware is ok the the err could be from the software
check the launcher apps too

hope it helps
