Do you receive any message or code while turning on wifi?

There is a tiny switch on the side of the laptop (on in the front) that turns the wireless ON/OFF. Make sure you’ve switched it on.

Method 1: Run the network troubleshooter and check if it fixes the issue:

Method 2: Do the following to change the wifi settings:

a.     Click Start, type network and sharing center in the Start search box and hit Enter.

b.     Click Change adapter settings.

c.      Right-click the connection and select Enable.
