Why can't my laptop connect to the internet?A few days ago, my laptop was working just fine. However, randomly one day, it just couldn't connect to the internet anymore.
Answer to: Why is my fan turning on and blowing loudly?The computer's fan is meant to cool down the cpu. Usually, the fan becomes loud when the cpu is over-stressed with a lot of programs. However, if the fan gets really loud for only a short period of time, then it is possible something might be wrong with the driver. Try reinstalling the driver for the fan. There are many programs online that you can install to control the fan speed; however, be aware that controlling the fan speed may result in your computer overheating. An occasionally loud fan may also be an indicator for a hardware problem where either the fan or the thermostat is malfunctioning. If this is a concern, refer to the Motherboard Replacement Guide.
Answer to: Why can't I connect to my printer?Try to connect your computer directly to the laptop through a usb cable and wait for your computer to download the device (or manually download it through the device page online). Afterwards, the printer should now be listed as one of the printer options. If it still does not print when connected by usb cable, then either try reinstalling the printer driver or refer to the printer's official site for common solutions. Note that this also may be a compatibility issue.
