WLAN Won't Turn on!?

Hey,
Ive been having problems with my old computer. Im not sure of all its specs but its a Compaq Presario running Windows XP, and theres a button on the top of the computer that you press to turn WLAN on, but when i press it, nothing happens? It's been working fine since 2006, but now nothing works and i can no longer get on the internet. Any suggestions on how to manually turn it on or why its not working would be greatly appreciated.

-Thanks

This forum is for Win 7. However, I have an XP where I can change wifi and/or bluetooth in the bios. This maybe the first place for you to look.

I supposed the driver could have become corrupted. Check device manager and see if there's a warning.
