My Tosh Laptop cannot connect to wifi...

Toshiba Satellite 40c

Specs: Windows XP
I cant connect my Toshiba Laptop to the Wireless Internet. I think I changed a setting.

I also get a message:
" Al least on Service or Diver failed during Startup."

Is there someone that could send me a program or software to download on a memory stick to clean it up... Perhaps wipe it clean and start it fresh.

It has Windows 2003. I'm not worried about losing files or info. And I don't care if it's Win 2003.

It would be greatly appreciated if there is someone that could help.

My email address is :

Thanking you (all ) in advance,

Your expectations are a little unrealistic. I don't think anyone will be able to provide you with a download of an operating system unless you want to completely wipe the system and switch over to one of the free linux distros. you will of course run into all sorts of driver difficulties and may end up in a worse state than you now have.

Your goal should be to restore functionality to current system and to that end I suggest you look in devicemanager for any problems with the wireless NIC.

Then visit Toshiba website and download the appropriate drivers for your model laptop and the operating system you have.

Please also clarify whether you are connecting to a wireless router that is connected to cable/DSL or are you using a wireless broadband USB modem.

The term "Wireless Internet" can be interpreted a number of ways and your ultimate solution will depend on what kind you are using.

And finally, do not publish your email address in a public forum unless you really like spam. We do not respond by email since one of the purposes of this forum is to build a searchable database. Email replies would counter this purpose.

Thanks for setting me straight Richard59,

Firstly, I am a complete Dummy :(
Checking the Wireless NIC, What the Heck it That.???

I'll lock for something like that on the Laptop-Device Manager sounds familiar.

Ya a complete Dummy.

I'm not sure how to determine the Model of My Toshiba Laptop--The bottom says
Model PSA40C-004E4

It's a Satellite A-40 SYSTEM UNIT

In regards to the internet access: I use the Library for Wireless Internet- As well as for Internet Access now on a Desktop. It is a CAP site.

If this is of any clarification, and you have the patience to continue your assistance-Please, Accept my Thanks.
