Dell Laptop, Retarded Wife, And You

Sorry for the semi-derogatory title but my anger runs deep at the moment.

My dell xps 15z laptop was working fine until my wife for some stupid reason tried to reinstall Windows and erased my hard drive.

Here's my problem: The dam laptop works as if the wireless no longer exists. I dont have the option to connect to the internet wirelessly anymore--it doesnt recognize any networks at all. I went to my network adapter via device manager and it says its "working properly." Turned on the wireless of course at the start of course. I'm at a loss. Besides password protecting my laptop so that no retard can do this again (and short of taking the dam thing to the local Geek Squad agent) what should I do? :fou:

You have most likely disabled the wifi. Meaning not disconnected, but disabled. Also, you may have to set up the entire network again through the wizard in Windows Control Panel.

Try restarting the WLAN AutoConfig service. Also try Fn+F5 to make sure its on (you wireless card that is).
