Hi there,

I have tried so many things to turn the wifi switch on and its software. I installed new window 7.


Could any help with this?


Thanks in advance

WiFi is on/off is usually a combination of Fn and some function key. I hope you have tried that already.

That not the problem. The problem is that you can't install the wifi driver on it

You said you can't intall driver - what exactly happens when you try to install. Please write some more details here and somebody would be able to help for sure.

I would completely uninstall the driver and let Windows reinstall on its own. I am sure you tried that.
If nothing works, I would reinstall Windows 7.

Updating BIOS could be a possible solution to problem - no harm giving that a try.
