OHs netbooks not connecting to the internet, boots up (very slowly) then when it finally turns on it displays a window saying WSA failed to start up and not running (or something similar), it then shows me no connections atall. normally we use a wireless connection but its not picking any up or letting her go on internet. Any ideas as havent got a clue?

Opened start menu mate can't find command promt where about is it and will this work mate

type in "cmd" in the search bar.

You haven't knocked the wireless switch have you? It can be a little slide switch or a button. It stops all wireless activity and could explain why you can't see anything to connect to

When did it stop working? Did you install anything prior to it not working?

Or did it just randomly happen?
