Wireless network adaptor not working

\015 Hi all,I have just bought a refurbished Acer one netbook AO531h.The problem I'm having is that it will not connect wirelessly.I have gone into device manager and found the network adaptor which is: Atheros AR5007EG and it has a yellow exclamation on it. When I click on to look at the status of the device it says it is enabled but ''This device cannot start'' (code 10).Any ideas how I can resolve this? Thanks\015

if you can get access to the internet on another computer the above link gives useful info on troubleshooting error codes generated in device manager. If you can't get online try highlighting the device in Device Manager and right click for a list of options>click on update driver. If that doesn't work uninstall the device and windows should recognize and reload drivers for it when you reboot.
