Can't turn on my wirless capability on HP Notebook

I have somehow managed to turn off my wireless capability on my HP Pavilion Entertainment PC. The instructions say there should be a switch on the front or side of PC but I can't find anything. Also, if no switch it said to use a function key combo. but it doesn't tell you what it is! Thanks

    Wireless was working. Somehow, something was accidentally pressed that made wireless lock and now I can't get it unlocked. There does not seem to be a switch to unlock it. There is supposed to be a "Function" key combination that should fix it but I have no idea what that is. I tried "fn" with "f2." That didn't work. Any other combo ideas? The laptop is a HP Pavilion dv5-1235dx.

You didn't post the model number of your laptop but you may want to try FN+F2.

Usually the toggle switch for the wireless is on the front right hand side of the machine and has a light to tell you whether it's enabled.

    no wireless switch on my dv7 model HP pavilion laptop, and i pressed and held FN F2 to no avail. however, i did discover the wireless light above keyboard on right upper corner. it was orange, signaling "turned off". fortunately i happened to press directly on the orange light indicator, and it turned blue. sure enough, my wireless connection turned on.

Turn wireless


You may have a small switch on the side of your laptop that turns on/off wireless and/or Bluetooth. Or you may have to use "fn" keys to do that. If you've tried both methods and nothing happens, check that your devices in Device Manager have good drivers installed.

The troubleshooter says that my wireless capability is turned off. It was working all last night and just randomly quit working.


You have to find the wireless switch because your swith is somehow turned off.
If that does not works go to
Device manager (Right click my computer go to properties, under properties go to hardware and then to device manager) and then uninstall the wireless drivers. Then restart the computer give your computer some time so that it can reinstall the drivers automatically.
