Cannot Enable Wireless

I just reinstalled windows XP SP2 and since then I have not been able to turn on the wireless capability.  I also reinstalled all the HP drivers with that CD and the wireless assistant turns on but the button to enable wireless is grey/faded out so it cannot be clicked.  The button on my keyboard to switch on the wireless is unresponsive.  I checked the bios with F10 on start up and that says that wireless is enabled, wireless assistant also claims the the bios is enabled.

 

Those are the only three ways I cant think of to turn on the wireless and none of them work.  Please help.

 

Thanks

Re: Cannot Enable Wireless

Nevermind.  I saw someone suggested to take out the battery so I unplugged the computer and pulled the battery out for a little while.  When i put it back in and turned the computer on the wireless keyboard button worked.
