right click on My computer and click on properties, then on network check if Broadcom Wireless is listed, if it is then make sure wireless assistenat is installed by checking for it under Drive C:/ swsetup. if it is not listed, then the wiseless adapter is not available on your computer. Good luck

If you shine a flashlight on the display, can you faintly see an image? If so, the trouble is that the backlight isn't working. This is pretty common, and it's usually because the inverter in the display goes bad.
Replacing the inverter is fairly simple. You need to open the open the display, which is normally a matter of removing screws at the corners and separating the front bezel from the back. The inverter is a small circuit board at the bottom, held in by one or two screws. A couple of cables plug into it. Unplug them, mount the replacement and reconnect it, put the display back together and you've repaired your own laptop. Of course you can also take the computer to a service shop if you don't feel up to trying the repair yourself.
Replacement inverters are pretty easy to find for the major brand computers. A few minutes searching the Web or checking on eBay will give several sources. Typically a new inverter costs $30 to $50. There are also many YouTube videos showing how to replace an inverter.
Good luck! Thanks for using Fixya.

some laptops have a special button for that ...take a look if you see some buttons in front of the edge ..and see the wifi symbol ..after press it look if any leds are on for wireless
Another thing you should check if the driver for the wireless card is installed and it is enabled...For that get into bios first and default all settings to the factory optimal defaults...after that save changes with f10 and restart ...now is the time to look into the device manager to see if any of the newly enabled devices are in yellow with an ask sign on them ...In this case those are the ones that need drivers to be installed
if you do not have a drivers cd for the operation system that you have in use..go to the support site of the manufacturer ,choose downloads..and look for your exact model and operating system ...Most manufacturers have all the drivers needed in free downloads on the site ..
if you find your exact model on this site ..you will have all the drivers too..
