    Yeah, ran scannow and it found no errors.

    I'm downloading Ubuntu now and will get back to you with hopefully good results.

    SFC /scannow is still showing up with no errors.

    Alright, under additional drivers it says no proprietary drivers are in use.

    Did the steps on the link you sent and no help either.

    Do I need to install Ubuntu? Right now I'm just booting from USB.

    Live CD is fine, no need to install. I think to wireless adapter just died.

    In ubuntu live cd open terminal as explained before. Then do:

    Code:
     
    sudo  su  -
    lspci
    Does it show the wireless thing in the output?

    I'll do that but something interesting happened when I went back to windows.

    It said drivers were installing an I go t hopeful. Then it said that the Intel 5 series/3400 chipset family PCI and express root port 3 are ready to use. But that the network controller is "device unplugged." Doesn't sound too good

    A card reader is for reading SD-cards from digital camera or video camera for example.

    Linux can't find the wifi adapter as well

    Anything changed in device manager? "other devices" or "network" group
