First Step, Reboot your PC.

Second, try connecting an ethernet cable to test if it is a network fault. If that fails, then Click on the start button, then select run (If there is no run box, simply type in the search box) and type cmd
You will get a black command prompt screen. type ping
If you get any replies with packets sent 4 lost 0 it means that the internet is active but there is a problem with Windows.

In this case, try reseting your Internet browser.
If that does not work, do a small Winsock, by following this :
Click on the start button, then select run (If there is no run box, simply type in the search box) and type cmd
Then type netsh winsock reset

Reboot your PC, that should work.

If that Fails, get a local tech. (You may need to reinstal Windows Eventually)

I can't enable my blutooth on my vostro 1014, in windows 7. how can i connect wifi and blutooth?

Well to me the best solution is to buy a Bluetooth usb dongle. which you can put onto your usb socket. This one would quickly pick up any Bluetooth devices that you might want to use with the Laptop Computer. Buy preferably one that comes with bluetooth driver software on a disc. This will cover all your Bluetooth needs.

I m not able to connect to bluetooth and wifi please help!!!!!!!!!!


Your dell bluetooth must be turned on before able to pairing with other compatible device. Please check bluetooth switch on your laptop keyboard ( if there is you must turn it on also). Most of bluetooth devices are compatible.So please try again your bluetooth pairing .

To activate the wifi , you must covered at active wifi area / Wlan ( hotspot), then click your internet connection on right below corner ( beside battery sign) and open network and sharing center,then activate your wifi . This wifi will not work if you are outside wifi covered area.
