    No connections are available


    I have recently stuffed up my laptop and did a complete reset but I can't connect to the Internet like when I open up the wireless network place it says no connections are available also when I plug it into the modam it does nothing and want connect I think it may be to do with the resetting deleting the software but I don't have any way of connecting to the internet so I don't know what to do any ideas?

    Hey mate,

    the reason is because you haven't installed the drivers yet. Fill in your system specs, and I will point you in the right direction

    Of course without internet, once you get the drivers, you'll need to use a USB device (the most common method) to transfer the downloaded drivers to the problematic computer to get it working.

    Hey mate, your motherboard is not listed. The make (MSI) is, but what model is not. If you need a tool to tell you what it is, this one will work from eightforums' sister site: System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums - It won't actually install anything on your computer, you just need to run it.

    But at least you know what website to find the drivers at: MSI Global - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Motherboard, Graphics and more
