Well there are many reasons but from what you've
said it can only be the Switch itself or your Router's
Firmware needs to be updated.

Go to Start: Type cmd in the command prompt Type
ipconfig press Enter look for the default gateway that's
your Routers IP Type the IP number into your Browsers
url or address bar press Enter. Once inside your Router
or Modem/Router view tabs and look for Update Firmware
Follow Prompts If this does not fix your problem then you
must further look into the Wireless Switch the Light is the
Switches Confirmation that it is Working Properly. Also
a
Driver will not cause this Function to not work and I know
you said the Drivers are Good and pls don't be Mad but has
the Adapter been Enabled with the Assumption your Computer has an RJ45 port for hard wiring.

Stay Positive and We'll Figure this Out.

Were you able to fix it? I took out the fan and cleaned it with a toothbrush (didn't disassemble it). If it worked, can you provide some insight into what you did?

looks as though the user profile might be corrupt. Try booting into safe mode or another user log in. If you can access safe mode create another account. Reboot computer normally and log into the new account. If new account works then you have a corrupt user account that would need to be fixed or just transfer all data to new account and remove old account.

For the most part CD/DvD Drives are pretty standard and there are no drivers required other than what is supplied by the Operating System. That's why when you look on your manufacturer's website you won't see any drivers for the cd/dvd drive unless they are doing a firmware update.

When you click Start/My Computer is your CD/DvD drive listed as a device? If not Remove the power cord, Remove the Battery, turn the laptop over and Remove the screw that holds the DvD drive then remove the drive from the slot for about 20 seconds. Put it all back together then reboot and see if the drive is now listed under My Computer.

If the drive is still not listed under My Computer you will need to Remove Upper and Lower Filters.

Hello,

Here is a link to IBM's website for trouble shooting the wireless adapter

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-50402

From the above link:

Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.


I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

Some Lenovo and ThinkPad computers have a LED light that is located on the top edge of the screen and can shine a light on the keyboard.
To switch on this LED light, press the Fn key plus the PgUp key (This key maybe different on some model laptops).

    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

    It helps to know what device model and OS you are using though the following steps for changing from pattern lock to slide are for Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich):
    1. Unlock your Android device
    2. Find the Applications menu and select "Settings"
    3. Under the "PERSONAL" group, select " Security"
    4. Under "SCREEN SECURITY" group, select "Screen Lock"
    This will ask for the security pattern first.
    5. The options for screen lock will appear, select "Slide" and you are done!
    Hope this helps.
