Fixing a Laptop That is Not Connecting to Wi-Fi

You need the Wi-Fi at all times. For most people, the laptop is of no use without the Wi-Fi. We all have encountered a situation when the laptop just doesn’t connect to Wi-Fi. Sometimes, the problem gets solved after you run the troubleshoot tool. Sometimes, it might still persist.

Turn The Internet On And Off Again

This is important as sometimes just turning the Wi-Fi on and off will solve the problem. Your laptop will probably have the wireless button on the keyboard. It might be on the keyboard or on the side slots. If it’s red, press it so it gets white again. Now connect with the Wi-Fi again. This usually does the task, but if the problem still persists then you always have the troubleshoot tool.

Troubleshoot The Problem

The laptops have a troubleshoot tool that is there to solve your Wi-Fi connectivity problems. When the laptop doesn’t connect to Wi-Fi, it will automatically give the option of running that tool. You should run that tool and it will fix the problem on its own. If it still doesn’t solve, then the tool will command you to perform a few actions such as turning the router on and off etc. After you’re done doing all this and it still persists, then you can move to fixing the software.

Check The Hardware

By doing all the above things, if your laptop still won’t connect to WiFi then you need to check the hardware. First shut down the laptop. Now unplug the wireless router as well. Don’t turn both the things on immediately and wait for 15-30 minutes. Now plug everything back in.

This should solve the problem but if it still persists then you need to update your wireless drivers.

How to Deal With a Computer Virus

One of the most pertinent issues in the world of technology these days has to deal with cyber security. This basically means that there are a lot of viruses out there, and malicious actors frequently use these viruses to try and get access to your computer without you realizing what is happening. This is very dangerous because of the fact that a virus can potentially end up causing serious financial harm if the malicious actor that has made the virus is trying to access that kind of data, particularly your bank account or credit card details which are much easier to glean than you might have initially thought of.

Fixing your computer after a virus has infected it is actually not that hard. If all else fails, you could always just install your operating system all over again. This would delete all of the programs that your previous operating system had, thereby giving you a clean slate upon which you would be able to build a new computing experience that is devoid of any of the viruses that you might have had to content with previously.

Once you have installed a new operating system, though, you will have to install drivers and software as well. This is because of the fact that you will be able to get your files back from your previous system, but drivers and software are not brought along from that old setup. Installing them again can be a bit of a pain, but there are websites out there that would make the process a great deal easier for you. One such website is https://www.driversandsoftware.com, a place where you can get all of the drivers and software that you are going to need to make the most of your laptop.
