    Wifi and audio stop working randomly


    Hi,
    my wifi stops working at random times on my win 8.1, maybe once a week. The same thing happens with headphone jack, usually not at the same time. It takes about 5 reboots to get them to work after that, which gets really annoying.
    When that happens, I can't see any wifi network around me, and the headphones work on any other device.

    I doubt this is about drivers, since it's two different drivers we're talking about.

    Can you run and download auslogics driver update I ran it on mine and it found 4 drivers out of date and found the right drivers and updated them I have since brought the program along with boost speed and now it runs in the back ground keeping my drivers up to date

    I could try that, but I remember this happening the first day I installed Windows and drivers. The fact that exactly the same thing is happening with sound and wireless is weird, they don't seem connected to me in any way.
