Windows 7: Wifi is disabled?

Ummmm... I just tried to start it and no light at all...
Though I do remember yesterday when the light went blue for like a sec and then turned it self on but I think it happened when I messed with the BIOS or somthing like that.

About the Wifi symbol... Which one? the one in the right of my computer where's the time and everything is? I mean the system Tray?

Yes I clicked on it and it found nothing so I tried to solve things out using the Windows but it says that the Wifi utility or somthing like that is turned off/disabled.

Also if you need then my Laptop is Lenovo 3000 G550. Windows 7 32 bit.

I meant the wifi symbol on the actual computer case, my laptop has has a speaker and wifi symbol just above the keyboard F1-F12 keys. Look at your computer to see if it has such a feature, if it does, touch the wifi symbol. Does it go blue?

If the wifi symbol goes blue at boot, then red when Window's starts logging in, it can mean:
A) You need wifi drivers or updated wifi drivers.
B) The wifi symbol on the computer case was pressed, Window's remembers this and leaves WiFi disabled.

If the WiFi does not light up / lights up red, it could mean that the built in WiFi adapter is disabled in the BIOS.

When you boot up, there should be the option to enter your BIOS by selecting the right key during boot, normally this is either "Del" or the "f2" key although this varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. When you get to the BIOS settings, it may be one of the top level options available. If it is, just select the option and then press "f10" to save the settings.
