Cant activate wireless

Hi guys

I have a problem and i dont know what to do. The problem is that now i cant activate the wireless adapter on my laptop. I mean if i try to do it in the keyboard shortcut it doesnīt works.

Iīve tryed to re-install the network adapter drivers but it didnīt work.

If i do the ipconfig command line it says that "wireless network adapter" is turned off.
I think the service in the administrative tools is running as well.

I donīt know what to do... can it be a corrupted dll or something ?

Thank you in advance guys

PS: I have windows 7 home - 64 bits

Well for starters how about you tell us about your system specs?

If it is a laptop there is a key combo that turns on the wifi device

Also, sometimes the settings will be found in the BIOS. so try looking there.

Try deleting the Wireless Network, then reconnect to it. See here: How to Remove a Wireless Network in Windows 7. Now reboot.

Right click on the Wireless icon in the System Tray and View available networks then connect to yours again, see what happens. Sometimes creating a new profile fixes this kind of problem. Worth a try.
