Airplane mode won’t turn off

Hi @Harryandrew,

 

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

Flower_Bud is at your service.

 

As I understand, Airplane would not turn off on your PC. 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

 

When was the last time it was working fine?

What is the product number? 

What happens when you click on Wi-Fi icon? 

 

Let's try these steps to fix the issue: 

 

Step 1: Check that the wireless key or button is enabled

Most notebook computers have a button or keyboard key to turn the wireless signal on and off. Check the button or key status to verify if the wireless signal is on.

  1. Locate the wireless key or button. This could be an image of an airplane or a wireless signal.

    Button or key

    Description

    A standalone button with an airplane. This enables or disables “airplane mode” and turns off wireless and Bluetooth on the device.

    F12 key with an airplane. This enables or disables “airplane mode” and turns off wireless and Bluetooth on the device.

    F12 key with wireless icon and LED. This enables or disables "wireless mode." The LED illuminates in white or blue if active, and amber if wireless is turned off.

    A standalone wireless button. This is typically located above or near the keyboard.

  2. Press the button once, wait 10 seconds, and then observe any changes to the wireless connection icon in the notification area and to the LED light on the wireless button or key.

    If the button or key does not have a light, hover your mouse over the wireless connection icon in the notification area of the taskbar to see the current connection status.

    If the wireless signal is turned on, try connecting to the Internet again.

    If the wireless signal is turned off, press the button or key again to turn it back on, and then try connecting to the Internet again.

Step 2: Update the wireless driver through Device Manager: Click here to continue troubleshooting steps.

 

Keep me posted!

Cheers :)

If you have another working computer, you could use a usb flash drive, download the driver, and then connect the usb drive into this one and install it. Let me know. :)
