    in device manager
    broadcom 802.11n network adapter-"the device can not start code 10"

    i also have 2 base system device with yellow exclamation "base system device" both code 28

    but i urgently need the broadcom wireless to work..

    and i have other questions,,this is my uncle's pc..ad since this pc was a mess..it may got virus,etc...
    now the pc came with 2 disk for reinstallation,media direct and the OS
    -media direct only format the HD right and make a partition if you want..
    -now the OS disk install a fresh clean copy..then why it didn't install correctly those drivers..

    now..in this scenario shouldn't be advisable to first wipe offf the hard drive first with something like dban or [email protected] get rid of everything and then install a fresh copy of the OS/
