    GF's old Laptop was connecting to the internet wirelessly fine, but one day after she dropped it, it stopped connecting. I tried hard wiring it and it still won't work. PLS help!

    Thanks!

    If a wired connection doesn't work at all, then it's possible that a piece of hardware is damaged. This is even more likely considering the fact that she dropped the laptop.

    I would suggest trying a USB network adapter to try to receive wireless signals.
