Toshiba Tecra A3-S611 Freezes

Everytime I turn my wi-fi on, the computer freezes and becomes unresponsive. I tried to reinstall the driver but that didn't work. I even tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it. When the Wi-FI is turned off the computer works fine but I am unable to use high speed now.

If by "turned off" you mean with the switch, the wireless adapter itself is probably bad.The cheapest solution is to buy an external wireless adapter.

I re-installed Windows XP, now none of the USB ports recognize anything. Any suggestions?


Hello

Have you installed the chipset drivers after you reinstalled Windows XP?

If not, you will be able to download the drivers HERE.

Let me know if you have done this already.

Kind regards
