No wireless on NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller after Windows update...ugh!!!

Posted: 02-04-2009, 04:28 AM

Hi...usually I am pretty competent with common techie problems, but I am
stumped here.

After a recent Windows update, my wireless isn't working, meaning that
it says it's "working properly," but will not pick up any nearby
wireless signals when I know they exist. Also, switching the on/off
button for the wireless on my HP Pavillion tx1000 Notebook only allows
me to keep it in a "disabled" mode.

After doing a system restore, the wireless does work properly upon
rebooting. However, if the computer goes to sleep, hibernates, or is
shut down, it fails to remember the system restore it just did, and goes
back to it's non-working wireless state.

I have also searched for wireless driver updates and have installed
them. This does not change anything.

How do I prevent this or fix this? I am in another country at the
moment and do not have access to my original discs. The mouse/cursor
has been a little jumpy at times as well.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

I know this seems like a dumb question, but how would I do that?

Isn't that in essence what I have been doing each time I use syste
restore? Why doesn't it remember it each time either?

Thanks!!

Control Panel---Programs and Features---View Installed updates---her
you can uninstall updates. However it might not be the update.

The problem you're having sounds like one I've seen in XP where anothe
program say NVIDIA (wireless program if that exists) is controlling yo
wireless networks, which means the built in windows one can't and vic
versa.

However I don't know if that happens in vista probably not since
don't know how to fix it.

Since switch the switch only allows disabled mode, try right clickin
on the wireless local area connection and try to enable.

You also might be able to roll back drivers in device/hardware manage
by right clicking on my computer properties, hardware. right click o
your wireless device.

These are just some suggestions, it hard to troubleshoot this proble
without seeing it.

I tried uninstalling the updates for the last month. No success.

I tried system restore for various dates each time it has returned t
this "bad" state, but they never are completed succesfully and don'
provide a specific reason why. I am only able to complete syste
restores from safe mode, but each time I shut down/sleep/hibernat
thereafter, it forgets and reboots in the "bad" state.

When the wireless switch doesn't work, I can right-click the icon bu
it does not give me an "enable" choice. I tried this already.

I already tried rolling back the drivers, but there were no previou
versions to roll back to. I tried updating the drivers, and had n
success there either.

Is there anything else I can tell you about my situation that woul
help? This is becoming such a tiresome task to just get online that
feel my only choice is to start from scratch again. But I can't do tha
for another week until I get home where all my discs are.

Help...please... :
