Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My wireless network adaptor no longer works!

\015 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\015
