I need help! thanks in advance :/
Youre wireless card could be defective.
You can try unseating the card and reseating it.
To do this make sure the laptop is powered off all the way.
Remove the battery or you can cause other damage.
"Be sure to only touch the edges of the card to avoid Electro Static Discharge"
Close the laptop, turn it over.
There are two removable covers secured by screws.
Under the larger one of them is the wireless card and memory
The wireless card has two antenna wires coming from it a black and white one that just pop on and off.
If you need to you can remove the wires with your fingernail and then pop them back on with a finger.
The card is secured on both sides by a lever. Pressing outward on the levers should release the card allowing you to remove it.
Take it out and wait 10 seconds, then put it back in the way it was reconnecting the wires if they were disconnected.
Put the cover on, put in the battery, plug it in then see if this worked.
If not the pc card needs replacement.
