Wireless card issue on restart
Hi there, long time reader, first time poster.
Had a weird issue last night while I was streaming a movie. Apparently Asus LiveUpdate was running in the background and ran into a problem, as it shut down my HDMI output and asked me to reboot. When I did, neither the wireless driver or the NVidia driver were working. The wireless driver was a simple fix - just uninstalled, scanned for hardware changes, and voila. The Nvidia driver I just downloaded and reinstalled from their website, and it hasn't given me an issue since. The wireless driver, however, will make me go through this 'scan for new hardware' dance every time I restart my computer before it will work. Here's what I tried so far:
1. Downloaded the latest driver from Intel's website. Same problem on restart.
2. Uninstall other wireless drivers that might interfere. No dice.
3. Uninstall wireless driver, restart, let it install that way. STILL made me go into device manager and reinstall before any networks would show up.
I'm really at a loss here. I made sure to have my anti-virus off while installing, so I can't figure out what the problem is. My specs are below. I installed the wireless card myself after I got the laptop, since the stock one didn't support 5Ghz networks, but it has never given me an issue till now.
I'd appreciate any suggestions y'all can offer. I'll be sure to post back if I somehow fix it.
