  1. i just spent 2 hours with windows screen share techs helping me troubleshoot this issue, they even upgraded my os, and the power flush actually worked. im holding back tears

  2. none of this worked, and even more, after that power flush my laptop is not working at all, it displays critical process died blue screen of death every time i try to boot it up 🙁

  3. YO I HAVE HAD THIS ISSUE FOR WEEKS AND I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA HAVE TO SEND MY LAPTOP OFF. SERIOUSLY BRO THANK YOU. I CANT EXPLAIN MY APPRECIATION

  4. Who would have thought it was the power flush that would do it? Thank you! I'd installed Linux Mint and the next day my WiFi stopped working, so I blamed Linux. But perhaps it was just a coincidence.

  5. Oh my god! Thank you sir, the first method of disabling and then enabling worked, I tried so many things and watched so many videos but nothing worked except your method. Thank you!

  6. Nothing helped man, I had to restore my Windows but there was no other time than 11:50, but at 11:50 I still had no internet so it made no difference, if someone could pls help me with this that would be awesome
