Wifi & bluetooth adapters have minds of their own! [E530]

2016-06-13, 12:33 PM

Hi, I've posted about this before, but as I got no reply, I think I'd better do so again. 


Basically, the Wireless N-2230 and various BT adapters on this machine are insane. If I switch the BT off, the WiFi refuses to work, and even spontaneously 'loses' its drivers sometimes! The BT itself misbehaves when this happens, and sometimes keeps switching itself back on when I try to turn it on. I've tried everything, but the only thing that works is a forced reboot. In addition, I've had a 'Fan Error' AND a second Thermal Sensing Error this week. 


Are there *any* software fixes I can try before going through an expensive motherboard replacement to save this machine? TIA for answers :)
