    The light on the f12 key is blue when your wi-fi is on and amber when your wi-fi is off.

    So that indicates that your wifi is not working. Is that what you meant by "unable to turn on radio"?

    Since that laptop is 7 or 8 years old, the internal wifi might have died.

    You might need to use a USB wifi dongle like this

    Before you purchase anything, be sure it says it will work with the version of Windows you are using.
