Windows 7: Maybe someone can help me.

15 Oct 2013   #1

64-bit Windows 7
Maybe someone can help me.

This morning, when I woke up and started up my laptop, I realized my wireless button would not turn on. When it's off, it's orange, when it's working, it's blue. I used my sister's laptop to figure out what I could do to get it working. I google'd the problem and was able to get my wireless adapter enabled [it had somehow gotten disabled] and I thought my problem was solved.


My wireless adapter is enabled, but it is not connected. I've tried plugging in the Ethernet cable and it still does not work.

If it helps my Wireless adapter is Ralink RT5390 802.11

If anyone can help me figure out what's wrong, it would be greatly appreciated. I just want to use my laptop ;~;
