Try finding a wireless switch. if you cant find it on any side of the laptop, then check the keyboard for a key indicating wireless. On most laptops you press that key in combination with another one labeled fn in blue

There could be several things happening. First, you didn't say what had been fixed. I'm assuming you have a wireless connection, but you didn't say. Assuming it is wireless, it needs to be turned on. The computer in question could have a switch on the case, so if it does, then turn it on. If there is no switch, then a combination of the Fn switch and one of the special function keys (should have an icon to represent a wireless connection). If that doesn't work, check to see if the wireless adapter is, indeed, installed in the device manager. There is always the possibility that whoever "fixed" it left the wireless modem out of the case.
Your lappy most likely will not have wireless internet built in but it will have a wireless network adapter. There will be a switch somewhere on the laptop case (often a slide switch near the case lock) and this needs to be turned on to activate the wireless card.
Try looking on the physical part of the laptop on the front or around the sides you should see either a small swith that slides or a small button with the typical wireless picture on it try pushing the button in. Also you should check in your network adapters to make sure its on. You can check this by going to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections. If you have anymore questions or need some in detail answers email me back.
I can't find any info about that laptop on the internet. If you have xp, go to start menu, control panel, network connections and see if you have a wireless internet connection in there. If not, you do not have a wireless card in your laptop. If you do have that connection, right click to enable it. Please rate, thanks!
Did you try - after switching on the "antenna switch" or WiFi hardware - to "Enable" the WiFi adapter, under (XP) Start - Settings - Network Connections - LAN or High-Speed Internet - Wireless Network Connection? (select, right click and select Enable)?
p.s. Once your WiFi hardware is recognized (by Win XP) there is (should be) always a "Wireless Network Connection" in your Network Connections, enabled or disabled, active or not.
He may have dislodged something (hard drive, power connection, etc.) inside the laptop. You could try taking the laptop apart and re-seating all connections and looking for physical damage. This requires a fairly high level of hardware expertise to achieve successfully. You may be better off taking it to a service facility.
Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.
