Laptop looses wireless network and goes to airplane mode and gets stuck there.

HP Spectre x360 Convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Since the last windows update, I have been having problems with my computer staying connected to wifi. Usually, when I have not used the computer for a while it will go to airplane mode and will not acknowledge any wireless networks. I try to turn airplane mode off and it will not. So, I go to restart and many times the computer will not restart. It just spins and spins. Finally, I will hold down the power button until it shuts down. Then to restart I have to wait a while as it will not start right back up. When it does finally restart it finds the network and all is good for a while and then we repeat.

 

I have updated the drivers and I have reloaded windows with the option to retain personal files. 

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).

I have followed the steps you outlined and everything seemed to pass. I will keep an eye on it for a day or so and see what happens. Right now looks good. 

 

Thanks for your help.

After waiting a day the problem still persists. It loses the wireless connection and then gets stuck in airplane mode.  Sometimes I can get it off of airplane mode but it still does not find any networks. So I reboot and hope for the best. 

 

Any further suggestions.
