There's a thread i awsered already few months ago here (second screenshot):
Windows 7 and Intel WiFi Link 5100
(might this post help you first!!)...
...I hate to say that, but i think you'll have to manually remove all Intel drivers from your machine...in order to know if your card needs to be serviced.
-First uninstall all Intel softs suite...and drivers/pilotes from the "device manager" & " program & features".
-Second, there's a folder in C:/Windows/system32/DriverStore/FileRepository/.....
delete all the folders related to the intel wifi-link driver; the list could be long if you have updated drivers since first time you bought the computer.
(See first screenshot)
YOU'LL HAVE TO "TAKE OWNERSHIP"
of the folders to delete them.
-Reboot, then windows will install from Windows Update his own intel driver (look in device manager the version). This will also create again a new folder in "FileRepository".
You'll see then if the card work with the driver.
