Hi. Here is a diagram of your laptop. It looks like your wireless switch is turned on by hitting a combination of two keyboard buttons. The Fn key and the F2 key. Locate the Fn (function) key, and locate the F2 key. Then press the Fn key and hold it down. Then press the F2 key and it should cycle back to on. If that does not work. Click on start, my computer, on the left, my network places, view network connections. Double click on your wireless connection, and it should enable it if it is disabled.
Thanks for using Fixya!

these are the drivers for sound supported by your laptop ...first is for XP and the second for Vista ...I didnt knew which os you have ...
the easy way to fix is just reinstall the driver ...remove the old one first from the add rem programs ...or if you do not have driver just put the right one ...
if you know that your drivers are ok ...verify in the volume manager ...(double click on the speaker icon)
not to be muted...or another volume problem ....
also in the driver manager check the speacker out to be ..ok
but ..if all these are ok and you do not have sound ..Isuspect that you changed the original operation system and didnt had the right driver for it ...ex...from vista to xp ...
let me know more if you do not manage it ...and do not forget to rate me ...thanx!

If you do not have an 'N' compatible wireless adapter in your laptop, make sure you set the Belkin to 'B/G' compatability mode. Also, the type of security if an older laptop is probably limmited to WPA-PSK, and you would need to set that up in the router as well. Extremely old laptop wireless adapters may be limmited to WEP, which is an old an unreliable security encryption.

Have you checked the device manager of your computer? Is there any red/yellow alert in it? I suggest you try to upgrade/reinstall the audio driver if it still does not work. Feel free to visit DigitalSupportTech for getting help.

If you believe that your unit has a sound card, then you simply install the drivers for the sound card. Otherwise you need to install a sound card.

Go to device manager and look for sound card

    remove the battery large.
    then run on AC pack only
    #1 top failure of all mobile PC is that battery, so unplug it
    then test with AC pack only.
    work now.? and all vents must be clean, end to end. not just fan.
    there i no fuse it uses current regulator, imagine genius magic electronics fuses that never blow out, and bingo.

    OK big battery out, an RTC coin cell fresh.
    then fan blows.
    next is BIOS, do the BIOS screens work if not the mobo is dead.
    have 2 RAM stick on the 2 slots>? try one at a time
    run the PC with all modules removed, (options)
    remove hdd?
    remove, dvd drive.
    think like this. Get bios working first
    learn that modules can short, and when they do the power regs shut down.
    so we unplug all things to the mob,
    until only 1 ram and cpu remains.
    see? (this is called power overload fault isolation tactics)
    even the screen only can be dead, you never mention text showing
    you can test the mobo with external screen via that rear (?)_ VGA jack what if that worked, did you learn something here, sure.
    this pc has tons of modules to pull, even bluetooth. wifi, sound and more. if you look at all parts inside or sold by ebay, bingo. lots
