If anyone wondered, I spent the ENTIRETY of yesterday trying to fix my computer's wireless card.
Its one long story. tl;dr version though:
Got on the phone with a dumb Technician that told me that in order to fix my computer's problem, I needed to delete the drivers for my wireless card.
Layman's terms: I needed to delete the very file that tells my computer HOW to USE my wireless card.
I still had faith that the lady knew what she was talking about so I did. Not only that, I had a feeling that I could fix whatever problem that she could mess up.
Well, after discovering that she was a brutal idiot and didnt realize that some computers (even after the computer reinstalls the missing drivers on its own) some drivers the computers dont have pre-installed AND DONT EXIST ANYWHERE ON THE INTERNET is when I learned on that day that there is a such thing as a dumb technician.
Not only that, after turning my laptop into just a brick, SHE TRIED TO GOAD ME INTO BUYING THEIR CUSTOMER SUPPORT SERVICE!!!
You mean.........after you showed you had NO idea how to fix my computer, you want me to pay for a 1 year plan for $100 JUST SO YOU CAN MESS IT UP MORE!?
I spent ALL OF YESTERDAY trying to get it to work. I did.......but at a price.
I no longer have my 3-year antivirus license that I got with the purchase of my laptop because I had to uninstall it so I could use system restore.
The license was $80 bucks.......which is why that is a big deal.
I hope I can call the company and get it back.
It was a journey yesterday and much raege was shared.........by me to the rest of the house.
..........and all of this started when I couldnt access w101 anymore.
