Cant access internet with new laptop, only limited access

My little brother gave me his laptop so I reformatted his laptop and when I try to to connect to the internet via WiFi I could connect but I would have limited access. I can connect to the internet with my old laptop, iphone and xbox. But I cant connect to my newly reformatted laptop. Please help.

Thanks

Have you loaded all the system drivers for all the installed hardware? You get them from the manufacturers website, download area.

Hello! Nice to meet you!

What laptop manufacturer is it?

Dell:
Dell Official Site - The Power To Do More | Dell

HP:
HP - United States | Laptop Computers, Desktops , Printers, Servers and more

LG:
LG Electronics: Consumer Electronics & Appliances from LG | LG USA

Asus:
ASUS

If you have one of the following, look at there site for your Model's downloads. Some laptops need "wireless drivers" which connect your laptop's antenna to the router.

If you have another brand, you may look on the internet for other brands.

Ok so I connected an internet cable directly to the router and accessed the internet from there. I then started to download the graphics driver from the HP website. It started installing, I left the room for like 2 minutes came back and the whole screen turned black. I waited 10 minutes and it just stayed black. I turned it off with the power button and turned it back on. Any thoughts?

Ok so i downloaded most of the driver updates but everytime I finish downloading it says It might have not installed correctly, And it says" install using reccomended settings" or "It installed correctly".. So when I pressed the "install with reccomended settings" for the Broadcom wireless thingy it just had an error so i just canceled. So for the other 2 drivers, Intel turbo boost and some other Lan one, I installed I just click the red exit box when they asked me it might not have installed correctly since it didint help the first time. When I try to use the WiFi again it still doesnt work. Still have limited connectivity.

Please help! Thanks.

I hope I can help as much as I can!
I have a PC with Windows CP loaded on it and it had lost WiFi too. We re-installed the wireless drivers, yet it failed. Hopefully you won't have those issues.

I had an older HP which in the upgrade to 7, failed also. I currently have a eMachines PC, so I use a cable for my Internet. Maybe try connecting it to a router with a cord if it could be at a convince to you.

Use a Windows 7 disk or USB and use the "Repair Computer" feature for any registry issues.

I'll revisit tomorrow!

Hope I can help,
Fitz

Ok so I'm in the library and I can access their internet via WiFi but I cant with my house. So maybe it has something to do with the router? I tried unplugging the router and plugging it back in and it doesnt work. Still says limited connection. Need some insight, please help.

Thanks
