    I have an HP laptop and after replacing my fan (my computer had not been use in a few months). My laptop can’t find any wireless connections. I’ve restarted everything router and such, but it still doesn’t pick up anything. I’ve tried troubleshooting and I even checked if anything wasn’t working under devises. It said everything was functional, but obviously something isn’t working right. I also don’t have a WiFi button and I hadn’t done anything out of the usual then not using the laptop for a while.... if anyone knows of to fix this or if I should try anything else I’d love to know

    If you are trying to use an integrated wireless adapter ...

    Is the wireless switched on (Airplane mode off)?

    Are the antenna leads attached securely?

    Is there any chance an antenna connection was knocked off or loose when installing the fan?

    I'd guess about 99% chance if the answer to my second question is 'no.' :D
