can't detect any wireless please help!

one of my user's laptop wireless is working properly until the laptop can't see any wireless. i already checked the settings of the laptop, even if the wireless is set to broadcast, i cant see or connect to any wireless..

under control panel > network and internet > network and sharing center, on the left side of the screen i can't see the option "manage wireless settings". that's why i cant add any SSID of the router. i already checked the drivers and update it but still theres no wireless detected. when i run the windows troubleshoot i got this error saying "windows could'nt automatically bind the ip protocol stack to the network adapter".

pls help..
Thanks in advance!

Did you check in BIOS and Device Manager the wireless adapter is enabled?

Usually there will be a switch or button on the laptop to turn on the wireless. Did you try them?
