I think it's after a Windows 10 update last night. I recently had a very similar problem where my mobile hotspot would disconnect 7 seconds after activation. Network Troubleshooter says WiFi Capability must be switched on, but when I follow the instructions, but after searching for directions online and following all instructions, it still won't work. Switching WiFi on doesn't work either, as it disconnects after maybe 4 seconds every time.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.

HOW DO I USE DIAGNOSTICS?
HP PC Hardware Diagnostics Windows is a Windows-based utility that allows you to run diagnostic tests to determine if the computer hardware is functioning properly. The tool runs within the Windows operating system in order to diagnose hardware failures. HP PC Hardware Diagnostics Windows comes pre-installed on new HP computers, but if not on yours, download here:- http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp93001-93500/sp93457.exe
Copy, Paste and Save in Notepad, as LBB.bat (not a .TXT) and double click to run.
Preferably run as an Administrator.
OR copy and use the individual command lines as needed.
Post anything non-personal, but relevant please.
