So I have HP Notebook model 15-bs034nm (Windows 7 64 bit) and everything works correctly except Network. I installed driver for wireless card but it keeps saying "Wireless capability is turned off" ,there is no available connections and there is no switch on laptop or anywhere.I tried everything suggested on HP support site and I just dont know what to do anymore so I hope someone will come up with a solution

Thanks.

Hard to say where such a switch would be on a HP laptop. HP should be able to tell you.

Now, do not look for a physical switch. It is probably a touch sensitive switch on the top of the keyboard near where the screen is. It will likely turn on BLUE when you touch it. It probably even has an icon network symbol.

Just explore above the keyboard.

Well, the best you can do is to MAKE hp help you. Intel did not make the laptop.

Now, you may want to look in the device manager to see if the wireless device is disabled.

Or, you can look in the control panel to see if it is disabled.
