I am assuming you are using Windows XP for this solution, Go to 'start', click on 'Connect To'. If another menu comes up to the left of this then right click on 'Wireless Network Connection' and click 'Enable'. If a window opens up then the solution is the same process as above.
If this is already enabled then you may need to reinstall the driver go to Advent's website and search for your model number
The operating system files may have been deleted and the laptop cannot
boot up. To get the laptop operating again you can try a Windows Repair,
failing that you need to install Windows again.

To recover your data before you install Windows - remove the hard drive
from the laptop and connect it to the USB hard drive adapter then
connect it to a working
computer's USB port. This computer will see the USB hard drive adapter
and hard drive as an external storage device, you can then open the
folders and files on the hard drive and copy the data files to the
computer and to backup your files.
Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following steps:
1. restart the computer and keep pressing F8; Use Last Known Good Configuration.
2.If the issue still occurs after that, I suggest testing if we can boot from a Windows XP disk. If so, please install Windows XP on another partition and access your important data.
3. After backing up those data, you can use Windows XP disk to format the drive and reinstall your preferred operating system.
4. However, if we cannot boot from a Windows XP disk, the issue can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings or damaged hardware. I recommend contacting your computer manufacturer to check BIOS and hardware.
To access the data on the drive, you can try to install the hard drive on another computer.
I'd reccomend backing up data and formatting your hard drive. Then install XP from disk and put data back on hard drive. You could use external hard drive or jumpdrive. It stands to reason that SATA works with XP, because the new computers I have seen have SATA and XP working conflict-free.
U DONT NEED A RECOVERY DISC TO FORMAT YOUR HDD ALL U NEED IS THE WINDOWS DISC U WILL USE TO LOAD WINDOWS THAN START YOUR COMPUTER UP BUT WITH YOUR CD ROM TO BOOT UP FIRST U WILL THAN HAVE TO VERIFY IF U WANT TO UPGRADE YOUR SYSTEM WILL CHECK IF WINDOWS WAS INSTALLED BEFORE AND ASK U DO U WANT TO FORMAT AND YOU WILL SPECIFY YES DELETING ANY OTHER PATITIONS
