Enable HP Wireless Assistant - WYLAN

I have a Compaq Presario Notebook F572US. I use my wife's router to connect to the internet. Occasionally the WYLAN becomes Disabled. What steps can I take to Enable the WYLAN? I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.

Thank you for any help you can give.

    Thank you Daibras for your solution but it did not work.

    After I clicked on Network Connections and got to Local Area Connections, the following message was below: Network cable unplugged. Not sure what this means because I have an old laptop that uses a card to pick up the signal from the router at my wife's PC and there is no problem with an internet connection.

    On the front of my notebook there is the wireless symbol with an amber light. When it works it is blue. To the left of the amber light is a button with vertical ribbing that you can slide to the left or to the right. It is normally in the right position close to the amber light. When I slide it to the left (1/8 inch) nothing happens. I do not know where this slide should be positioned.
    Is it possible my problem has something to do with updating drivers? I am so frustrated and there is no one in my small town in Mexico who can fix it. Thank you so much for all suggestions.

I have a Compaq Presario F572US to which turns off on occasion and tries to reboot but fails. I then take a blow dryer to the heat sink side for a couple of minutes and will come on and work again for...

If your computer occasionally shuts off it may be due to overheating. As a safety precaution your computer will shutdown upon reaching a certain temperature. If you are using your laptop in bed, and it is resting on a blanket or some other object is blocking the fan it may cause the laptop to overheat. Try elevating the laptop or getting a laptop mat with built in fan to help keep it cool. If there is an issue with the Nvida card changing the BIOS will not help.

Compaq HP Presario F572US just turned off.

Remove the battery and plug laptop power into the wall (or power strip).
Turn ON laptop without battery.
It should start.
After Windows has settled, put battery back in and let it charge up.

Hope this helps!
