Broadcom 11b XP Problem - I think

    I've got a HP Pavilion laptop with XP Home. The computer has an inbuilt
    Broadcom 11b wifi.

    It is dual boot with one XP partition for a games setup and the other
    for general use.

    I had a power problem a couple of days back which caused an unintended
    shutdown and since then, one one partition only, I have had a problem
    with my network connectivity.

    It may momentarily connect and then disconnect completely.

    I have tried uninstalling hardware, reinstalling. Uninstalling drivers
    and reinstalling but all to no avail.

    I have a wifi button on my laptop which enables the wifi to be turned on
    or off but on the problem partition I cannot get it to show.

    A separate wifi adapter works fine and as the connection works fine on
    the other partition I am assuming it must be the Broadcom software.

    Anyone had a similar problem and able to give any pointers.
