    Hi guys,

    I'm new to this forum and my apologies if I have posted in the wrong field with this query...

    I have a customers Packard Bell Easynote MX37 laptop that I have installed Windows 7 on... Original OS Vista Home Premium.

    The problem I am faced with is the WiFi switch.

    The WiFi switch will activate itself on start up and enable wireless connection, but if the switch is pressed it disables wireless and stays disabled, no matter how many times switch is pressed. Once laptop is restarted it will become active again...

    I am stuck on how to proceed with this problem and any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks for reply,

    I am aware of Battery replacement and have carried out request to PB.

    I have run all Windows updates as well as checking PB support for latest drivers.

    I think this is more of a configuration problem between mobo and switch than driver... ?!

    Did it work with Vista?

    Then that would imply that its a driver or utility that is missing or not compatible with Windows 7.
