Did you make any changes to it yesterday? Update drivers or anything?

Just to confirm, the switch is in the on position correct? I have slid it off before and thought something went wrong but it was just my fault, so its best to check the obvious options first just to be safe.

If its one of those fancy touch sensitive panels, switch off, remove battery and mains, switch on and hold power button, wait 30 seconds, put battery back in and connect up mains and switch on.

The touch panels can fail due to static build up.

I just had this problem and the answer is not in the manual. I tried taking out the battery but that did not work either. I did a chat support and got this solved. NOTE: You do NOT need to be connected to the internet for this to work.

Here is my chat:

Hold windows key and press the X key on the keyboard
Then click on device manager

> Fred says:
Ok following your directions now


> NEMLUCY V says:
In device manager, double click on network adapters to expand and let me know the drivers listed there

> Fred says:
Ok

> Fred says:
Cisco system
Microsoft Kernel
Ralink rt5390R
Realtek PCIe

That's it

>NEMLUCY V says:
Please rightclick on Ralink rt5390R and click on properties

>Fred says:
did it

>NEMLUCY V says:
Click on the driver tab at the top.
And let me know the enable button is active.

>Fred says:
It says DISABLE So it IS enabled.

>NEMLUCY V says:
Please click on disable
Click on apply and then ok (or just OK)
Reopen it again and enable it and click on apply and then ok again

>Fred says:
ok did it.

>NEMLUCY V says:
Does the status of the light change?

>Fred says:
no

>NEMLUCY V says:
When you press the F12, do you receive any message on the screen?

>Fred says:
yes. Airplane mode on or off

>NEMLUCY V says:
Okay

>Fred says:
However the color of the light never changes whether it says airplane on or off

>NEMLUCY V says:
Go to the device manager again.
Rightclick on Ralink rt5390R and click on properties

>Fred says:
did it

>NEMLUCY V says:
Click on the driver tab at the top
And let me know if the rollback button is highlighted.

>Fred says:
no

>NEMLUCY V says:
Please click UNINSTALL to uninstall the driver

>Fred says:
Ok it's doing it.

>Fred says:
Done

>NEMLUCY V says:
Click on ACTION at the top of the device manager window then click on scan for hardware changes

>Fred says:
when I click ACTION the only drop down option is HELP

>Fred says:
Sorry your choices just appeared

>NEMLUCY V says:
Alright

>Fred says:
Ok I did it

>NEMLUCY V says:
Is the driver back in the list?

>Fred says:
It's finished

>Fred says:
Yay the light is on!!

>NEMLUCY V says:
Alright, is the driver back in the lists?

>Fred says:
Yes!!

Ladydee61, Your response is the first one that has ever fixed the problem for me. Thanks for being smart enough to post the whole chat transcript. I really appreciate it. I am able to use my laptop again.

I did everything you did in your chat(twice) with no luck. the only thing it did was blink with the white wifi light once when the adapter with reinstalattion. Any other problem I might have why the wifi stays red
