Windows 7: Can't connect to Wi-fi even in safe mode

Can't connect to Wi-fi even in safe mode

My laptop recently couldn't connect to my wi-fi at all. Everything it does is trying to connect to the wi-fi and fails. My phone and console work perfectly fine with the wi-fi, just not my laptop. I have restarted my router and even booted my computer in safe mode but it still doesn't work. I have no acess to the internet from my computer. I tried ethernet and it doesn't work too. If anybody could help that would be great, thanks!
