I can't get my wireless card to turn on. I have this laptop for a little over a year now and one day the wireless would not turn on. Looked in the device manager and it didn't have the wireless card listed.

Hi, it seems to me that you have several options. The first, and probably least desirable is to completely recover your machine to how it came from the box. YOU WILL LOSE ALL FILES, SO BACK THEM UP.
Process: upon startup, hold F10 key until loads into recovery setup, select advanced options then Complete recovery (to factory settings), deleting all your files.
Second option, depending on (1) how long ago problem occured and (2) whether or not System Restore points had been activated, is to restore Windows to just before problem occured, if you can remember approx when it happened.
Third option, download drivers for wireless from HP website, support section, and remember you want driver for 32bit Vista OS.

Good luck, hope this helps

You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html

The wireless button on my laptop is red so it won't connect to the internet, how can I make it turn blue so I can get my wireless back?


RESTORE YOUR COMPUTER! This just happened to me and i looked up and tried EVERYTHING! Since my wifi button had only stopped working 2 days ago, I restored my computer to 4 days prior because I was told that sometimes without you even knowing you allow stuff to get on your computer whenever you get online which could cause your computer to turn functions off automatically. My wifi button actually stopped working after I went into a mcdonalds with my computer an used their wifi so I think me allowing their wifi onto my computer did something to it because when I took it home the button was just red altogether and it was SOOO frustrating. But as soom as I restored it, my computer came back on and a little window popped up saying "Your wifi is currently off, toggle your wifi key to turn it on/off". I was so happy! The simpliest thing that no one would ever think of.

Wireless N and 4 to 5 year old sony vaio's


Any VAIO Computer released 4 to 5 years ago is not equipped with a wireless card that supports 802.11N WLAN standards. All the older VAIO Computer supports 802.11 a/b/g wireless standard. Because of this hardware compatibility issues the Computer is crashing.

For this issue Sony has not released any general update. However, you may visit the Sony site for specific model to check for any update release to address this issue.

Acer Aspire 6930 wireless on off switch


The wireless card has dropped the IP address, to get the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address, right click on the wireless connection (the one with the red X) and left click on Repair.
When the red X disappears then you can connect to the Internet.

Got a hp laptop with wireless on it the wireless has just stopet working i have to use a usb adapter so that i can go on the internet.can you tell me how to get my wirelss back.thank you.


does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?

if not is it enabled in the bios?

Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..

On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch

there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..

what model HP laptop do you have?

Help connecting


There should be a little switch on the front edge of the laptop with a little indented picture of a stick with curved lines comeing off it, switching it back and forth turns thw wireless on and off, when it is on a light next to the switch should turn on.
If this does not work maybe your wireless card is broken, if you are under warranty still you should have it looked at by a professional.
