I Have Found a solution FINALY!!!! The xbox 360 towel trick. Just do it with your laptop, start it up and walla back to normal. For those of you who are not familier with this trick you have rap your laptop in a towel.. let it overheat and when it gets to a certain temperature it will turn off. Then turn it back on and WALLAA!!!!..

I pulled my system apart,took the cpu,memory and heatsink off, and put the motherboard in the oven for 15 min upside down(gpu facing up) at 200 degrees celsius. waited for it to cool at room temp and i am now on the net with it, saw this on some forum and decided to try it, strang enough now the atheros card showing up after months of it being dead. using it for about 2 hrs now. i even had artifact om my screen when my computer decided to come up now its back to normal.

Everex Stepnote XT5000T has a known Mobo issue with several side effects including video card and wireless malfunction. This issue will be repaired by Everex (though with no guarantee of timeline) with a replacement of the Mother Board. Call customer support at the 888 number listed under your laptop, oh and dont let them tell you to take the battery out and push the power button ten times.. that will not solve the motherboard issue.
