I have installed two drivers now, downloaded from the Samsung website: a WLAN driver and graphics driver. The graphics are beautiful again, so that seems to have worked, but I cannot find a Wireless Network Adapter, using the Intel PROSet Wireless software that !'ve now installed.
I seem to remember seeing the Intel PROSet Wireless interface running before my notebook crashed earlier this week and I assumed that the motherboard had a built-in wireless network adapter. Do you think that the adapter might have failed, as well as the HDD? Is there likely to be a separate WiFi adapter, which I could replace? This is a Samsung R530 notebook.
There are other WLAN drivers on the Samsung download page (http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mo...lDownload=true
), Qualcomn, Atheros, and Broadcom are listed, as well as Intel.
