comment Wifi network undetectable on a Lenovo G470
I had a similar problem with a Z570, after refreshing the copy of Windows, the wifi adapter could not see the router. I never got a resolution - but I had a tiny USB wifi adapter on hand so I continue to use that.

comment How to find the source of the low on memory error. Windows 8.1
In this case, it was a problem with a certain range of ATI cards (Radeon HD5xxx-HD7xxx ranges)... AMD were adamant that the problem was with the game (or possibly OpenGL/DirectX/etc), but it was clearly with something low-level. Having upgraded my gfx card, I thankfully no longer have the problem, but it was never actually resolved.
