Hp 15
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Am just wondering if hp is doing this intentionally. I can't be able to switch on my wifi using f12. All my drivers are ok. I tried fn+f12 still no success. I tried resetting my bios nothing.all the other f keys are working well.my windows network troubleshooting indicates I have to switch on wifi switch.Am so frustrated

Hi:

 

What is the full model number or product number of your notebook?

 

What model wifi adapter does your notebook come with.

 

You are describing an issue where you have a notebook that was not designed to run W7, and there are some model wifi cards that won't work on W7 unless you remove them and mask a couple of contact pins.

You have the problem I thought you had.

 

Your notebook has a Realtek 8723BE or DE wifi adapter and it won't work on W7 unless you remove it and mask a couple of contacts.

I thought so too.hp is forcing people to use Windows 10.How can this lightweight laptop handle windows 10.I think I'll get an external wifi adapter or change the internal one to something else that will support windows 7
