    Windows 10 Automatic repair loop

    Turns out it wasn't a windows problem but the Hard Drive was so corrupted that the guy who fixed it used another computer to try to reformat it and it shut that computer down too.Will never know what happened to it, but he replaced my 1TB hard drive with a small one and told me not to down load anything from the backups because we don't know if they are corrupted . Thank you for all your input. Much appreciated.

    Windows 10 Automatic repair loop

    Yes according to my other computer i's bootable but the problem computer lets it blink a couple of times and goes right back to the same black page. I looked at the laptopmag and I can't get to any of that.

    Possible virus/malware

    Thank you Will pass this along.
  7. Ever since that Win update on 6/12, my Lenovo 8.1 laptop has gone berserk: slowed down to a crawl; can't do Win Update; can't run, repair or reinstall either Avast or Win Defender AntiVirus even in Safe Mode! Can't even get it into Safe Mode *with Networking*, just regular Safe Mode only; but when not in Safe Mode, it connects to my router just fine. This was presented to me by someone on another group. Any thoughts?

    So you think the network adapter problem is connected a problem on the motherboard? The power jack seems loose. I have someone who is going to open it up in August when i see him. He's worked with circuit boards for years in Quality control. He's going to try to see what the problem is with the power cord constantly falling out. Might me the cord that's the problem. I'm guessing if you're correct about the motherboard, this is going down the drain and it will need to be replaced. Thanks for ll your answers.

    It has windows 10 clean install by microsoft about 8 months ago.
  10. I own the above model laptop and the internal battery is bad, power jack is falling apart, the network adapter gave up and I have an external one now. Is it worth fixing? I got it on sale from Best Buy in 2015. I'm open to all thoughts. Thank you.

    network drivers missing

    I was using an ethernet cable and it was annoying so out of shear frustration I found on another site to delete the network adapter, which under other conditions, I wold have been terrified to do. However, I was already unable to use it. I was planning on buying a usb network adapter, so I did what they suggested. I deleted the network adapter and rebooted and the system found it missing and reinstalled the adapter and the driver and it has worked flawlessly since. Neither Intell or MS thought of this fix. Sorry for the delay in getting back but thought it best to make sure it was really working

    network drivers missing

    Intel tried all sorts of things MS reinstalled windows 10 clean install It works and then it quits. Error message is saying that device isn't enabled and that windows does that when device isn't working properly. Someone I know that worked for years with electronic boards said it's rpobably a loose connection. I think down the road I'm just going to buy a usb one. I'm getting bad vibes from this computer. Like HP stopped making it. I love it except fo this.

    network drivers missing

    OK, I've tried everything you guys have so graciously suggested, used links etd. Called Intel to try to see if they could help since network adapter is an Intel product. They downloaded all the drivers. First it didn't seem to show up in Device manager and then yesterday it di until it stopped working. Do you think that it's a hardware problem?
