First, I apologize if this is the wrong section or if this has been asked before. I searched but could not find a solution for my particular problem.
Basically, my laptop has been working fine. Running Suse 11 with KDE3/4.1.
Shutdown the PC normally.
Booted it up and now Kpowersave will not run, NetworkManager does not work and I have no audio.
I do not recall uninstalling something critical or otherwise changing the system except for enabling read/write access to external drives(NTFS).
I do not know where to start. The wireless does not work. Wicd and NetworkManager fail to find any networks and seem not to even load the driver. Xine does not load in Amarok. USB drives do not mount. CD-ROM does not mount.
I was getting a Stale NFS error at one point.
Please help. Thanks in advance.
