Yoga 2 did not detect a properly installed network adapter

Woke up this morning, turned my yoga 2 on, no WiFi.  So I used the troublsheeter and it told me there was no properly installed network adapter.  Does that mean my wifi card is dead?  Anyone else have an issue like this and find a solution (besides replacing a dead card?)
I did:
1) reinstalle drivers via usb from another machine
2) used a system restore point from a few days ago
Neither action had any effect.

Well I just set it to airplane mode and while I had no wifi it never told me that there was no network adapter cofigured.
Also, when you set it to airplane mode the wifi signal icon changes from bars to an airplane.
I think the adapter must have stopped working and then.. started working again.  I can't figure out what else it could be.

  • Surface Pro 3 / "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter"

    Hi all,
    I've been running the Windows 10 Technical Preview (9926) on my Surface Pro 3 successfully
    since January. Unfortunately, I lost all internet connectivity today.
    The problem started when I noticed the type cover wasn't working (pressing keys on the type
    cover wasn't registering any typing on my screen) and my USB mouse wasn't working either. I tried removing and reattaching the type keyboard but this didn't fix the issue. I had to use the accessibility on-screen keyboard to sign into Windows (thankfully touch
    was still working). Once I signed in, I still didn't have typing or cursor ability, so I decided to restart the computer.
    Then it got worse. I noticed the Surface Pro 3 was stuck on "restarting" and wouldn't
    actually restart. Since it wasn't responding, I held down the power button for about 10 seconds until it turned off. When I turned it back on, the type cover and mouse started working again.
    Unfortunately, this is when the WIFI problems began. I had WIFI for a few seconds, and then
    I lost internet. I disconnected/reconnected but there was a yellow triangle telling me there was some sort of problem. So I restarted the Surface Pro 3.
    When it came back on, there were suddenly NO connections available at all. Opening the "Network
    & Internet" settings page gave me the message "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter". And here I am, without internet on my Surface Pro 3, borrowing my friend's computer so I can type this message (he is also running
    Windows 10 build 9926 on his laptop and is able to connect to my WIFI with no problems, whereas my Surface Pro 3 cannot even detect any networks). I have not dropped or damaged the SP3 in any way, and there have been no storms or power outages or anything
    of that sort. Any ideas what could have happened to the WIFI on my Surface Pro 3?
    Thanks for your help...

    Hi Ethan,
    Currently, there are a few compatibility issue between the current hardware and Windows 10 Technical Preview (9926 build), this is mostly related to driver compatibility issue.
    I suggest you download the latest network adapter driver package to install, when it is finished, check if it appears under Device Manager.
    Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro firmware and driver packs
    https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/networking-and-connectivity/install-wireless-drivers
    You can check if you can install the latest firmware package for your device.
    Here is an article to talk about such things:

    I understand that Windows it not detecting any network hardware.
    If you check Device Manager is it recognized?
    If the card is listed is there an error on it?
    If not and you are out of warranty you could try reseating the network card.

  • Windows did not detect any networking hardware, Windows 7, New Hard Drive

    Message "Windows did not detect any networking hardware"
    Satellite P505 S8980 Windows 7 Home Premium.
    I replaced the Toshiba 500 GB HD with 500 GB Seagate.
    Device Manager icon for any device with yellow exclamation mark,
    Click on "Update Driver".  Lan eNet details as follows:
    Antheo - R8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
    Browse to the folder where the setup program has the driver...
    Message: "The best driver software is already installed."
    (But the yellow exclamation mark still harasses me.)
    --- Go to "Setup new connection" ---
    "Choose a connection option"
    Click on "Connect to the Internet"
    Response: "Windows did not detect networking hardware"
    As near as I can tell, that translates from error 0x8E5E0247
    I have this same error on other yellow exclamation marks respective of what kind of device it is.
    => To test my sanity, I put the old hard drive (same size) back in and except for the impact of slowness due to error retries, everything works okay.
    Note:
    Same issue (hardware not detected) for Video adapter and Audio.
    I bought new USB Wireless adapter to test, and the driver installed but not activated because "not digitally signed", and that same issue fits all the above hardware.  I down loaded them from Toshiba, and they are confirmed installed, but not accepted with digitally signed.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled with same results.
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    I'm discovering I am not as well as I thought... running on the  AF hard drive which was built with a copy drive from old format drive which was the product of system recovery disc set.
    Review for context: Advanced Function HDD
    Scenario that exposes harm caused by cloning data from 4K blocks drive to 512 bytes blocked drive (AF)
    Toshiba supplied Windows-7 System Restore Discs: to factory state
    Then I built the Windows-7 Repair  Disc... used later.
    Hard drive was replaced when it caused SMART warning at every system boot.
    Acronis was only utility that quickly detected problem (3 sectors had permanent read errors.) [email protected] Image and Power Quest Drive Image (Ghost) did not detect the issue.
    I tried Seagate 500 GB and Western digital 500 GB HDD drives as copy target.
    That new drive would not boot: "Required source not found"
    Booted My newly created Windows-7 repair disc, and used to to fix startup.
    See images.
    That worked and then the ST9500423AS disc booted.
    Now... next day I discovered Window Update is not working.
    I get message:
    Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You need to restart your computer.
    I ran Microsoft Fixit for updates.  It says it fixed two items.
    I still have the problem.
    The service shows "started"
    Control Panel/ ACTION Center/ Maintenance/ Check for Updates
     "No action needed"
     "Windows Update does not require any action"
    I checked  Update History...
    ... It is empty, else window is vacant... blank.
    Soooo..... for a sanity check, I swap out hard drive; go back to the old format (which is the one I copied).
    It works!  7 updates to install, including SP1... but I did NOT install them.
    Switch back to the AF drive... Update doesn't work. I am broke again.
    Is this another strange problem caused by the Advance Format issue?
    What to do?
    By the way... I did install an Intel storage Matrix driver  update, but I do not have RAID chip, so that driver is not for me... unless I missed out on something.

  • Wndows did not detect any biometric devices on this computer..

    hp officejet 6699 won't print - gives message "printhead appears to be missing, not detected or incorrectly installed."   I have unplugged as instructed and that did not work.  I replaced all of the cartridges and that did not work.  It's over a year out of warranty and I don't know where to take it.  I didn't want to have to buy a new one just yet.  Is approx 2 years the life of an all-in-one now??   Can anyone tell me what to try?  Thanks!

    Hi pip3, Can you remember what you were doing when the error occured? Was there a specific event that triggered the message? Did you unplug the printer while it was switched on to reset it (documented here)? Please let me know if you resolve your issue, otherwise I will try to help you troubleshoot further. Many Thanks,Francheska

  • "Setup did not detect the required components. Setup will exit." !?!?!?

    I have a retail Audigy 2. Autoupdate recognizes my card and gives me the available list of drivers and applications for download. I download the following:
    ) Audigy 2 Drivers
    2) Audio Console
    3) EAX Console
    4) Speaker Settings
    5) Surround Mixer
    The ) Drivers and the 2) Audio console installs just fine. However, for each of the three remaining programs (3, 4, & 5 listed above) upon executing the downloaded file they all give me a pop-up window that says:
    ?Setup did not detect the required components. Setup will exit.
    This happens with all three of them. I want to install these because I am of the understanding that one of these contains the ?Speaker channel test? (for lack of a better word) that will test if my speakers are hooked up correctly to the right channels. The ) drivers, and 2) Audio console do not have that test. I created another post concerning this but nobody has replied:
    http://forums.creative.com/creativelabs/board/message?board.id=soundblaster&message.id=39825
    I also tried unzipping the three executable files with WinRAR, and then executing the Setup.exe files but it yields the same results.
    Anyone know why I can't install these applications?!?!?!?!

    So I search on it and it doesn't have anything to do with my dri've paths and such. I've tried an Audigy2 and Audigy2 value ISO, but they tell me they don't detect an audigy2... dxdiag tells me differently, however. I'm not in the mood for downloading a bunch more 400 mb ISOs to test them all out either..

    Last week 21st of may 2009, I found my PC did not detect my HDD. I have installed the HDD to another PC in order to check whether the problem was caused by my HDD or the motherboard. After I tested the HDD by installing it to another PC, it seems the HDD is in good condition and running well.
    After that I try to change the powerd cord and SATA1 cord to the HDD with the brand new one to check if the problem caused by the cords and still my motherboard did not detect the HDD. I am very confused what is wrong with my PC. Please help me to solve this problem so that I can use my PC back.

    Hi,
    the board has two controllers (ICH8R Primary SATA Controller (SATA Ports 1-6)) and JMicron JMB361 (SATA Port 7)).  Which SATA Port is your hard drive connected to?  The chance that both onboard SATA Controllers or all SATA Ports have been damaged is very low.  Try other SATA ports and see if the situation changes if you connect it to a different controller.
    Also, have you cleared CMOS with main A/C power cable removed from PSU to see if that changes anything?
