Question about Dell Latitude D531 Laptop Computer PC Notebook
Press the button just to the left of the power button (when mine turns on the bluetooth light appears just below the screen on the right side). See if it works now. If not, reboot, press the F2 key during startup (keep tapping until the message in the upper right goes to "Preparing to enter setup") to go into Setup. Go to the bottom of the list on the left side to Wireless. Hit enter to open the list, go down to Internal Wi-Fi and make sure it is enabled on the right side of the screen. Also, check the last setting and set LAN/Wi-Fi Auto Switch to Off. You might also have a bad wireless card or a bad driver. If nothing works then re-post as possible driver problem.

If the fan is turning and cleaning hasn't helped, the problem is usually that the heat sink compound has dried out. The d531 runs a bit hot anyway, so I like to replace the compound after a couple of years. This is not a job for casual computer fixers. Take it to someone who knows laptops. Double check that fan. Sometimes they run slow! Try the fan test on Dell's diagnostics. You can find it at http://www.support.dell.com drivers and downloads for your particular laptop under the diagnostics section. Or try this Link.
