    Hello,
    To make a long story short the performance on my computer was starting to drastically decrease due to the large number of games and other downloads. So i decided it would be a good idea to whipeout the hard drive and then use the recover disk that came with the computer to put it back into top working order. The recovery steps worked fine and the computer startup is extremely fast like it was when i first got the laptop. However, i have no internet at all. I use a wireless router for my laptop, and i have no wireless signal detected from my computer. I tried plugging the eathernet cord directly into the laptop and it still lack internet connection. (I know my modem and wireless adapter are working properly) Im currecntly looking at the Device Manager and i realized that my "network adapter", and other devices such as "base system devices" and "network controlller" all have a yellow ! mark near then indicating they are not working. Im pretty much at a loss to what went wrong or how to fix the issue.
    Thank you

    ps. Asus Gaming laptop G50vt with Window vista

    You need to reinstall your drivers for each of the yellow question marks.

    Go here and download the drivers you need (just match them with the yellow question mark on your laptop).

    After you download them, put them on a usb to get to your notebook and install them. Nothing special, just double click each driver.

    NOTE: You didn't indicate whether you had 32 or 64 bit Vista...so just change the dropdown at the top of the page if you have 64 bit.

    Good luck.:)

    edit: My bad, you'll need to select notebook>G50>G50VT and then select the OS. (my link didn't save it)
