Check with your laptop's manual. The wireless switch is usually hidden in a spot that makes it difficult to find, basically so that you cannot hit it by accident.
For example, a Compaq Presario R3000 has a button on the exact left hand corner of the front of the notebook, such that it cannot be seen easily, but when you push it to activate wireless, you will see a very faint light blue icon near the right front button.
On an HP laptop,the wireless button is on the bottom.

On my ACER, there is not button. It is an automatic switch between wire and wireless.

So look carefully for the switch, because if there is such a switch, it will be difficult to find. But it is most likely that there is no switch at all.

Cheers!

How do I turn on the bluetooth on my Dell Latitude D520 Laptop?


Did you purchase a bluetooth module when you originally configured thecomputer? Have you added a bluetooth module since receiving thecomputer?

If you answered no to both of those questions, you can't enablebluetooth. It requires a separate radio, and if that radio isn'tpresent in the computer, it will need to be added in order to enablebluetooth connectivity.

Latitude d520 will not recognize power adapter


I have heard about this problem with a number of Dell laptops, including the Inspiron models. The problem is that the connector for the power port may have been loosened after many years of use. This may require service from Dell on the motherboard.
