Toshiba satellite wifi driver wont install?

My friend has a toshiba satellite L645D-S4040. I reinstalled windows 7 on his laptop but when I tried reinstalling the wifi driver it wouldn't work. I tried the realtek, the broadcom, and the atheros, and uninstalled each before I tried a new one. I even rermoved the wifi card and reinserted it, and that did nothing. I reinstalled win7 again and tried all of the above and still nothing happened. What could be wrong here? thanks!

Is there a hardware button on the laptop to enable the wifi adapter? You may need to press Fn + F8 key combination to enable the wireless adapter.

Well, there's the fn key and you can press f8 to disable and enable it under good circumstances, but that doesn't work.
