I'm new to here, but for any of you who are about to read all of this, i applaud you! I recieved my new Lenovo Z570 IdeaPad yesterday...I'll just put some of the spec down incase you want to know. Proccessor: Intel i5 (second gen) Graphics: NVIDIA GEFORCE OS: Windows 7 64bit yadayadayada... Anyway, after charging it up and turning it on, i started to install programmes and other bits and bobs. e.g iTuens, Flash Player. Just the usual essentials. I used the laptop to watch videos on Youtube, genenral browing such as Facebook, so in short, the internet was working fine. Just before i went to bed that night I installed AVG Security (free version) and ran a full scan. When the scan finished, i put the Laptop into Hibernate, and went to sleep! Happy in the knowledge my new gizmo was running smoothly! Just before i woke up i heard the Laptop turn off as it had run out of charge. So i plugged it in and charged it up, then turned it on. This is where the problem starts... I connected via wifi however the logo at the bottom right of the screen showed the signal strength meter on empty, with a yellow star covering it. I clicked the icon, and it said, 'Not connected, connections are available' and below shows im connected with 5/5 signal strength, but on 'Limited access'. I troubleshooted the problem, and the problems found were: 1) there might be a problem with the Driver for the Local Area Connection adapter 2)There might be a problem with the driver for the wireless Network Connection Adapter There are 28 updates, but im unable to update them as i have no internet connection. I also cant connect via the ethernet cable. I cant roll back the drivers as there are no previously installed ones, and i cant update them as i am already up to date. My other laptop (Acer Aspire 5630 running on Vista) works perfectly fine using Wifi and the ethernet cable, so i honestly dont know whats wrong. After reading things on my Acer about ways to fix the problem i came to the decision to restore the laptop to the time of my first installation which was Adobe flash player (which i installed the day before.) I was unable to do a full factory reset as the only options available are to either restore to a backup, or re-install windows (which requires a disc, which i dont have). I also didnt configure a backup as i had only had the laptop a day! I phoned up my internet provider and ran through everything, and all is fine at their end, so the only thing that it can be is the laptop. There you have it, I'm still baffled how it can work one day and not the next... It's 2 days old! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated Thanks.
