My wireless network adaptor no longer works!

I have a Compaq presario F500 laptop. i bought it roughly last september (07) and it has worked fine. about or month or so ago when i flicked the switch to turn the wireless on the light did not change colour and i couldnt connect to the internet, after a little more investigating my laptop told me i didnt have a wireless network adaptor. it has not been working since then except for a couple of occasions which are about 2 weeks apart where it will work for a half hour or so. after i turn my laptop off after it having worked it will not turn on. Could this be some sort of virus or is it just the laptop?
thanks

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

When you connect it to wireless make sure you go into control panel / network view your connection right click on local area network connection choose disable then connect to your wireless connection. Right click your wireless icon by your clock choose connect to wireless network or view available local wireless connection.

More than likely. Especially if you bought the new card from a different company than the one that made your machine. Look on the card for model info, and google "(#model) wireless driver download".

Start by going to add new hardware wizard. When it detects evrything tell it that the hardware is already installed and look for it in the list. Click on it and let the wizard load drivers from the internet for it. Let me know what happens.
