I am using a Lenovo G530 laptop and recently I upgraded the OS to Windows XP Service Pack 3. Due to its low configuration, I didn’t have much upgrading options so I just went from SP2 to SP3.
Anyways, now that I have SP3 installed, it fails to discover any wireless network. I am pretty sure that the network is on and fully functional (y friends are able to access it on their laptops). The device manager didn’t show any errors in driver installation and I have tried both the drivers provided on Lenovo’s site. When I reported this anomaly to Lenovo’s support forum, I got the answer that the drivers don’t work with SP3!!!
Apart from wireless connectivity, the Bluetooth device also is not working properly.
Now I don’t want to re-install SP2 and do all the customizations again. Is there anything else I can do besides formatting my laptop? Please advice.
