no it says that the Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter.If you have a network adapter , you will need to re-install the driver.
I don t get it I mean I did the following steps : Control Panel-Hardware and Sound-Power Option.
There at " Choose when to turn off the display I selected Never for both On Battery and Plugged in.
I m not using any batter so I m always plugged in .
Than I tryed to reinstall the driver and it showed me the same thing.
So I tried Power Options \ Advance settings and manually selected Sleep ( switched to never ).
