Windows 7: Problems in my computer

Problems in my computer

When I got home yesterday, I turned on my laptop. Everything was fine, until i logged in to my account. I saw only my cursor and a black screen. I restarted it, turned on safe mode, then tried looking for fixes. I tried the Prevx fix, but to no avail. There was this other fix, that made me use the task manager to open explorer.exe. My desktop finally showed up, but suddenly, my computer became slow(maybe it's slow, maybe something else happened to it). I couldn't use Firefox or any other application because if I did, it would freeze. So I restarted again and pressed F8. I was able to perform a system restore, but the nothing changed. So I decided to do a complete system restore, back to when I first got my laptop. Then, I had to reinstall Windows 7(I did clean install). Everything went fine, then I was able to go to my desktop. Then ALL the function keys on my laptop wouldn't work, I cant access the internet, it says the it cant detect any networking hardware. All the default Samsung programs were gone. EVERYTHING doesn't work Please help me.

Hi whee12
I would say downloading and reinstalling the drivers and software to your laptop should fix the problem, you should be able to find the correct ones if you know your make and model ect
Should that not solve the function key and internet issue then it would be a great help if you could give us the model of your laptop so we can help you troubleshoot better

Edit: you posted the specs just as i posted but the model would be a great help too

Where are you getting "Prevx fix" and "other fix"?? I've never heard of them.

The Prevx Fix I found by googling it, the Task Manager fix I found it on YouTube.

Everything is back to normal, except when i turn my computer off, the drivers deactivate and my monitor returns to an 800x600 resolution instead of the 1366x768. The computer also doesn't detect wireless networks unless i reinstall the driver. Any permanent fix for this?

you should unmake this as resolved if your still having problems.
As for the screen resolution are you hitting Apply before hitting OK? Did you reinstall the video card driver and software? did you also install the VGA(Graphics),INTEL (Driver) (ver.8.15.10.2462) ?

Wireless LAN,ATHEROS (Driver)(ver.9.2.0.462) should be the choice of drivers for your wifi i believe.
