Hmm sorry late reply mate I really don't know Joseph it is probably a lot of work and trouble to go to fix the wifi and if indeed it would. The other think is the cost of course as you know replacing its can be almost as expensive as replacing the whole machine as one find with car bits. But you can always find out that costs nothing.
Remember too that PART NO I mentioned before too if you go looking for a replacement. I know from past dealings with Toshiba it can be painstakingly long winded.

No mate you cannot use his key especially if it is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version. These are used by the major computer manufacturers and builders alike.

If you try to use his retail version and I think (I stand to be corrected) that Microsoft would be a tad unhappy if you put that on your machine. That is because it would show up as being on two very different machines because it has it's own dedicated activation code. A retail version is one that you pay a lot more for and can use on more than one machine to a point.

Now the difference is an OEM can be used once and once only on a set machine - that is it is tied to the motherboard (don't ask me as I don't know how). Now if the motherboard dies then you contact Microsoft explain the problem and they will generally let you put it (the OEM) on another machine - once - ask twice and it gets very suspicious. So that is why it is a lot cheaper than the retail version.

The retail version you put onto a machine and if that machine dies then the same thing happens only you do not have to contact Microsoft (I stand to be corrected again). You can I think do this about three times before you have to contact Microsoft and explain but again they are pretty good about things beyond your control.

So you are far better off buying a key or an OEM disk and installing that. If you want to keep your 7 settings then an upgrade version of 8 is what you want. The 8.1 I got fro free as it was being offered. To be honest I don't see a lot of difference except I think the security is better for one thing.

Yes mate it might have well worked but if the copy is an OEM then sooner or later they will pick up on it and the sticky stuff will hit the fan.

Hmm that is surprising they haven't seen that by now as it would have to be on two separate motherboards.
