How come my computer is now having driver issues after a normal reboot?

by on May 11, 2009

Q: I recently rebooted my Toshiba laptop and when I came to use it again the drivers for several bits of built in hardware wouldn’t register, including the network controller and multimedia audio control. I’ve read of several other people having this problem, but no one seems to be able to offer a reasonable solution. I know you guys are the best, so why ask the rest 😀
