    Display adapter not detected in device manager


    My nvidia graphics adapter is not found under "display adapter" in the device manager even when it shows hidden devices.

    Scan for hardware changes doesnt work and I cannot install any new drivers as the card is not detected so the installer shows an error.

    :)

    Wireless adapter not found in Device Manager

    I ran the Lenovo Solution Center. Network Adapter was not listed in the hardware scanned. Not sure if there is a separate listing for that normally or not.

    Ever since I ran a power cycle the adapter has not appeared in the Device Manager.

    Does anyone believe removing the adapter and putting it back would solve the issue? I would rather not open my computer if there is little chance of it solving the issue. I am a complete novice doing this.

    Not sure if this is relevant but in my Network Adapter in Device Manager there was "Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter". It has since disappeared.
