After restarting it works fine. The next morning when I start my laptop the same problem arises.What might be the problem?

        It is windows 2003 server SP1
        and more over I am not able to see the lan card when i say ipconfig/my network connections. It behaves as if no LAN card only.with out if i restart there is no use.after going to safe mode uninstall the LAN drivers form device manager and again I restart and check means it will work.

          Do the usual scans

          Scan for viruses.
          Run Spybot, AdAware, Etc and get any spyware out of the system.

          I’ve seen some pretty nasty worms lately that are only getting picked up by the spyware removal tools.

          One other thing to try is to go into the Device manager and see if the OS is finding the NIC. If you don’t see it there you can have the machine do a search. It should come back.

          If all of this fails you may actually have a bad NIC but I doubt it. Worst case contact IBM for further assistance.

          Best of luck.
