Windows 7: Turn on wireless capability COMPAQ c794 on Windows 7

Turn on wireless capability COMPAQ c794 on Windows 7

Hi All,

It had been working fine for two years now. Just yesterday my I year old punched the keyboard of my Notebook here and there when I was working. I show a couple of dialogs popping up and getting closed when he was punching. And all of sudden I lost my wireless connection, in a strange way.

  • The WIFI card is disabled, the physical button on the laptop is red indicating that it is disabled. When I press it to switch the wifi back on, the switch don’t respond

  • WWhen I run network diagnostic: error is: Wireless capability is turned off. But I see no option to turn it on.

  • I checked the network adapters through the Control panel and also in the device manager. They are up and running. No yellow sign, no “!” marks.
  • Restarted several times. No change.
  • Restarted in safe mode. Deleted the device in device manager and reinstalled. No change.
  • Disabled firewall. No change. (DO I need to restart after disabling?)

Checked the manual for Key combinations to toggle wireless on off. But there were non.

Any ideas? Please help. It may be a key combination that was activated when he punched the keys.

  • · AVG Free is installed. Need to check this one.
  • · Need to check in BIOS as well.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Get rid of AVG free, it causes wireless connection problems on a daily basis around here.

Uninstalling AVG will most likely fix the problem but if you are still having problems please post your ipconfig/all here and I will have a look at it.
