WiFi Disabled by Device Manager

ProBook 4530s

A friend lend me her laptop to type up a project, I fell asleep with the laptop on, I woke up in the middle of the night and turned it off. 

 

When I woke up in the morning and turn on the laptop and the WiFi, it's saying that the WiFi is disabled by the device manager.

 

Can this problem fix?

>  WiFi is disabled by the device manager.

 

In the bottom-right corner of the Windows screen, is there an icon for the "wireless" networking adapter?

Right-mouse-button-click on that icon, and click on "Troubleshoot problems".

Hi thanks for your response

 

Yes but it's saying that troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem.

Turn the computer off.

Disconnect the AC power.

Remove the battery.

Press the ON/OFF switch, to drain any residual power.

Insert the battery.

Turn the computer on.

See if the WiFi is working.

Right-mouse-button click on the "wireless" icon on the bottom-right of the screen.

Choose "Open Network and Sharing Center".

Click "Change Adapter Settings".

Right-mouse-button-click on the wireless adapter.

Choose "enable".

 

Feedback?
