MD 97900 laptop Onboard wireless and shortcut key problem.
Months ago now I was traveling over seas (before i had wireless in my home)via plane, so of course i turned off my wireless switch and disabled the card. Now, since we have broadband and a wireless router in the home, I have tried to turn it all back on, and whilst i can enable it from the connections menu, my shortcut keys and wireless switch have all stopped working.
Can anyone suggest anything to fix this.

You have to reinstall the Operating System such as Windows XP again nad reinstall all drivers. Thats the only solution, or else you can try to Restore the PC to the Date before you had to fly away!

Try holding down your power button and home button at the same time for about 10 seconds. If that does not work, you could try to hold them both down for about 3 seconds then let go of the power button and continue to hold down the home button for about 7 seconds.
your pc could be going in and out of range(wi-fi only operates under certain distances) The brand is not so hot either and could just be a malfunction either this or try a new OS if you can save your date .
When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.
Most consumer laptops have a hardware wifi on/off switch located on the sides of the laptop or toward the top row or even near the trackpad.
Also, on some laptops and most netbooks, the Fn key has alternate uses, however, it most keyed in with other keys in order to make the shortcut execute the command. In this case, Fn might not work without also holding the "Shift" or "Ctrl" key + the F-key that corresponds to the enabling/disabling of wifi.
Lastly, you might also want to look into the BIOS screen (when booting the laptop) most portable devices offer a low-level disable from that menu so that even when enabling via the Fn-keys or directly from the Windows/OSX/Linux OS, it will not turn on and stay disabled until changed via the BIOS menu.
You can see network key by logging in to router settings. Some routers are 192.168.1.1 and some are 192.168.0.1. All you have to do is type it in to address bar on any browser and log in and under wireless tab it will give you field where it says wep or wpa encryption and this is what you need. Hope this helps.
You are looking for the WEP key that is configured on your router. Use your PC that's connected via ethernet, go to the config web page for the router and somewhere on the wireless security settings you will find the WEP key that was configured for your wireless network.
