    I can't get WiFi on my windows Vista computer because it's stuck on airplane mode. I can't turn it off and I tried mostly everything.

    Does your laptop have a WiFi button which you can switch on and off ?

    Is your machine a branded machine? If so, what is the make/model?

    I just noticed the monitor says windows Vista but when I look up computer info it says windows 10. Will that mess with airplane mode?

    The computer says it is an AOC

    not necessarily. it sounds like it came with vista then upgraded to Windows 10.

    OK so i am not familiar with AOC so usually there is a switch on the right side of the laptop that may be switched like @lunarlander mentioned. Also check the F# keys. F8 or F12 may have the antenna icon that will also toggle the on/off switch.

    Using the troubleshooter should also help.

    Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Airplane Mode and switch it to off.

    Were you able to find a physical switch?
