  1. After i cleaned my laptop fan i'm facing a problem like my wireless button wont work when i press it. The problem is when my system is booting up during that time when i press the wireless key it turns on/off e.g i press and keep it on and when my desktop loads and i press the wireless key to turn it off it wont turn off, the notification says " Wireless disabled " and say for instance i did not turn the wireless on during the bootup and after my windows load i have no command over it to turn it back on it stays off, it either stays on or off.

    Any solutions please?

    I searched google alot, in one thread i found a fix with many people saying their problem got solved, but i dont know how to use that fix.
    That thread says the following :-
    I had the same problem with a Sony Vaio. It seems one of the updates put entries in my registry to start a Vaio Lan Manager with Windows.


    Check these keys to see if any kind of a 3rd party Lan Manager is running. If so, delete the entries and reboot.

    Sorry about the lateness of my answer, but I just had the problem.

    Good luck.

    Can anyone tell me how to do this in steps?

    Who made this laptop? HP? What is the full model number?

    Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?

    Yeah dujiaojing0,
    that's exactly why I asked this "Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?"
    If the wireless driver is missing or corrupt, you should see a yellow exclamation point in the device manager
