dv5 Pavilion WLAN won't turn on

I have an HP Pavilion DV5-1160us operating on Vista. I have never had problems connecting to the internet wirelessly. When I attempt to turn the WLAN on it says WLAN: ENABLED but the button remains red and there is no connectivity. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

 

Try a Hard Reset as follows.

 

Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery, plug in the AC Adapter and start the notebook.

 

Regards,

Thanks but that did not work for me. I also forgot to mention it started after I installed a new battery
