    My Laptop has gone on the blink :(
    I have a Dell inspiron 6400. When I switch on I get this message -

    Dell wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed

    Anyone know how to fix this ???

    Have you tried updating the driver? Could also be the cause of this, or just go to device managed click on the wifi card and say uninstall, reboot machine it will find the card again and install the driver, should be fine afterwards ;)

    Not an uncommon problem. Normally uninstalling device and rebooting fixes it. If not update drivers.

    Try updating the driver from the Dell website, that should do it.

    Also read somewhere that installing Norton AV sometimes causes this, are you having any problems other than the error coming up on boot?
