Re: my wifi wont turn on...

First open up device manager press the windows key and the print/pause key to bring up the system window select device manager.

Make sure your wireless adapter is listed in the network adaper section and there is no ! or X next to it

If device manager is fine boot into the bios and make sure the wireless is turned on and if there is an option to use the FN+F2 it is enabled
