I recently bought an MSI Ghost Pro 2QE for part-time gaming and general laptop use. I bought it used, and everything worked fine for a day or two. Then the wifi stopped working. Only the wired ethernet connection showed. The wireless card - a "killer" card - said it was no longer installed. It's hard for me to imagine how the wireless card crawled out of the computer when I wasn't looking.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers from Killer's website - no luck. I uninstalled the killer software suite, reinstalled the drivers only version. No luck.

Then the next day I turned it on to keep trying, and it worked again. It worked for a week. Today the wireless card disappeared again. I can't adequately describe how frustrated I am at this point. This wireless card makes me want to live up to its name!

Any ideas?

Update: I updated graphics drivers, and on the next boot the internet was dead again.

I re-reinstalled the driver again, as a qualcomm atheros instead of killer. It's working now. If it drops out again I'll do that tear down and check the connections.
