Wifi wont turn back on

Q: Wifi wont turn back on

I recently turned off my wifi connection just to do an install. I simply pressed func+F12 and i shut it off until my installation was complete. Now when i hit F12 again to turn it back on the little light on the key turns back on indicating that my wifi connection is back on but when i try to connect in my network connections menu it says wifi is off. I have a Samsung chronos series 7 with windows 8 as my OS. I tried everything as far as trouble shooting goes and I also did a system restore hoping it would reset my network card but I still get know results. Does anybody have any idea what might be going wrong? I really need to get my internet working again. Oh yeah i tried the Ethernet connection and that works but i need my laptop for class and other events where I'm mobile , plus i got an assignment due this morning and this is really putting a monkey wrench in my plans. So somebody please help.

Thank You

P.S.
Maybe I didn't set my restore point far back enough and also the one suggestion I didn't try was refreshing my computer but i didn't want to have to reinstall every freakin application I have loaded on my laptop.

A: Wifi wont turn back on

Have you checked to set what wireless adapter is set as default since you've turned wifi off? Since you turned it off, the default setting may have changed which could explain your not being able to connect to your wifi.

Hey, I have a HP Pavillion DM1-4020sa product number A2D08EA#ABU, which I upgraded to Wndows 8 the day it came out with no problems at all, dwnloaded all the available drivers including the HP Support Software that auto updates drivers and its been fine since. Until I turned the Wifi off only to find that it won't turn back on again, I turned it off via the button on the keyboard as you normally would then continued doing what I was doing, went back on later, pressed the button again to turn back on, it turned from red to green as it ormally would, ut Windows 8 won't actully fgure out that it's on, I've rebooted checked for new updates, disabled and reenabled the drver, uninstalled the driver and then reinstalled from the HP site, but still not change. Any help? Thanks, NG

A:Windows 8 Wifi Wont Turn Back On Once Turned Off

I wouldn't know why it's acting like it is, but you might want to try restoring the system back to a date when the wifi worked. I'm guessing that would enable the wifi again...Take a careful look at this document before you try it, OK? http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03327545 Hope this helps,

I've already consulted Samsung about this issue, and they want me to Refresh (windows 8) my laptop. I have important programs and I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

Started about half an hour ago, I plugged my laptop into the wired connection because it was downloading 6 GB. Plugging in a cord activates Airplane mode. In theory, once out of Airplane Mode, WiFi will turn back on. NORMALLY IT DOES, BUT NOW IT DOESN'T. THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF.

PLEASE HELP ME. IT'S A BRAND NEW LAPTOP, NOT TO MENTION MY SECOND ONE OF IT.

A:WiFi turned off and won't turn back on.

Is this a second computer with the same issue?

I would suggest contacting Microsoft as it seems to be a software issue and not hardware. Especially if you can turn on the wireless manually.

I bought this back in July. When it came in I turned it on to make sure that it worked then i turned it off and put it back in the box. It has been off until today. I turned it on and I noticed it was going very slowly. The mouse pad would not click and I could not adjust the sound with the keyboard. Everything would take a long time to open. I tried to turn the laptop off but it did not turn off when i pushed the power button. The laptop finally turned off when I went to power then pushed restart. It took about 5 mins to turn off but now it will not turn back on. The power button is still on but the screen is black.

Did this computer come with Windows 7 preinstalled, or was it an upgrade?

Reason I ask:

If it came preinstalled, then the driver has become corrupted.

If it was upgraded, maybe the driver isn't compatible with Windows 7 and needs to be updated.

Hi, having a problem with my Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 600.

Last night i turned the computer off when i went to bed. When i turned on the computer again the next morning, the power went on, but nothing showed up on the screen. We connected the computer to another screen to be sure that it was not the screens problem.
And we came to a conclusion that the problem sits inside the computer.

Anybody know anything i can du to have any remote chance to get this computer working again?

Thanks

Hi EDYYOO,
What is the current OS installed on the system? Does the ethernet work fine? Is the wireless card detected under network adapters in device manager? Did the issue start after any recent windows updates?
If the system was working fine earlier, then perform a system restore to restore the machine to an earlier point where it was working fine - http://dell.to/1Sg6khF
Update the BIOS if possible - http://dell.to/2fIMORn - restart the system and check if it works.
Restart the system and press f2 on startup to enter BIOS - check if Wireless swtich and wireless devices are enabled in BIOS.
Restart and check in safe mode with networking.
Enable the built in admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1Bgok2R

A:HP PAVILLION ZE4400 Wont Turn back on

There must be something disconnected, or worse, damaged in the disassembly process.

Regretably this is not uncommon if the exact disassembly requirements are not followed (they are seldom a "user serviceable" device)

As you now have nothing to lose, go back in and check every connection.

The HP site should have a full service manual for the laptop downloadable, it would at leats point to the correct sequence for disassembly, if it's not already too late.

I have a ABIT SLI Mobo, 64 bit Dual 3800+AMD Proc, 6800GS PCI-Ex16 Card and Antec PSU.

Built system was running awesome for 3 weeks. Rendered an Image and left it running and left the house. Came back and it was OFF. WONT RESTART!

I see a red light glowing on MOBO but when I unplug the cord it goes out and comes back on when I replug it in.

I figured the PSU was fine because of the red light coming on and off. SO i replaced the MOBO. Still nothing.

Is is possible that the Graphics Card took a poop?? Would that cause the system not to turn on if it died(fans ect....)

Does the red light mean that the PSU is bad??

Any help would be great.
 

A:Computer died! Wont turn back on???? Help!

unless the video card has some kind of short in it then that should not keep the system from booting or at least giving you some beeps. if the power supply went bad it is possible that not only it is dead but that it damaged other components. like the CPU, ram and video card.

if you have access to another PSU you should try it. if not, places like office depot and circuit city sell antec power supply testers for 10-14 dollars.

I was playing a game and my laptop completely cut out. I assumed it was an overheating problem, but it was only warm, not hot. It's been about 15mins now and it's still not turning on. When I press the power button the light comes on for a brief second then turns off and the speaker makes a popping sound. I've tried removing the battery and holding the power button for a minute to drain any excess, didn't work though. Also when the laptop is plugged in the charging light still works, so it's not completely dead. What else can I try?

Try switching it on with the battery out first and if the problem persists then check the adaptor for power output (ie volts)

I left the room a little while ago, and it seems my darling cat messed up my computer. not only by vomiting on it, but apparently did something to my mouse buttons. my cat's idea of a birthday present. :D

anywyas, i run a Dell Inspiron 8600. when i left click, it brings a right click menu up. when i right click, nothing happens. at all. no matter where i click. i checked my mouse properties, the buttons werent switched, but i switched them back and forth a few times to see if it helped. it didnt.

when i try to left or right click to close a window, open a program, etc, nothing happens. it wont actually show to "click" on the screen.

i've restarted multiple times, completely shut down, took battery out, everything, too it off the dock, too. still it's like this.

i plugged in an external mouse, just so i can get into here to ask for help. it seems to be okay for now, but every so, will get screwy.

now when i use the touchpad buttons in this text box, the right click still does nothing, but the left click goes to the scroll lock, like with a middle button.

i've check my button settings, and everything is still set to the way it should be.

whatever the unhelpful feline did, it was clicking a bunch of buttons together, i just don't know what those buttons might be, so that i can release this issue.

i've tried clicking with ctrl, alt, fn, anything i can think of.

Greetings, Today I was playing a game called Overwatch and I noticed that my laptop was getting pretty hot. This had happened before so I didn't think much of it. Then, suddenly, my screen went black and there was no signs of life for the laptop, even when it was plugged into the AC adapter. I let it cool down for a little while and upon plugging the AC adapter back in, i noticed that the power brick was making a ticking noise. I suspect that either the laptop just overheated or there was some sort of power surge to the computer, seeing as it wont turn back on. Help me please?  Thanks

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Display turns off after about fifteen minutes regardless of whether I am actively using the computer or not. The only way to turn the display back on is to close and then open the lid. This disconnets me from AOL, so I have to sign back on again, and if I was emailing, I might lose my current email.

Under Power Options, I have 'Turn off the display' set to Never for both On Battery and Plugged in. Under 'Put the computer to sleep' I have both On battery and Plugged in set to never. Nonetheless, the display still shuts off while I am working.

What do I need to do to prevent the display from turning off at odd intervals?

Once again the computer impaired one comes to the table of knowledge...

I shut down my PC, fans stop, lights go out. About 6-8 mins later it starts up again, been doing this for four days now. I ran a virus scan which came out clean. The only way to keep it turned off is to unplug it. The only tinkering I've done lately is to try to open a port on my router (which I didn't get done, forgot password and reset button doesn't work). I don't think my PC is set to hibernate, I have never used that feature.

Is there something I should check?

Synopsis: PSU died, replaced PSU with different model, system boots to bios successfully but does not recognize any devices in SATA ports, nor do those devices appear to be getting power. Now can't even get to BIOS, entire PC flicks on and off repeatedly as soon as I turn the PSU on regardless of whether I hit the power button on the front of the computer.

System Specifications

Original PSU that died: SeaSonic M12II 750 SS-750AM 750w PSU
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
GPUs: ASUS 670 non-top version, SLI (2x)
MOBO: ASRock Z77 extreme 6
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) SDRAM DDR3 2133
Optical drive: Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x SATA Internal DVD+/-RW Drive
SSD: SanDisk Extreme 240GB SATA 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch (OS is installed here)
Storage drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III (This was not connected when power supply died)

Detailed explanation:About a week ago my PSU (Seasonic 750w) died randomly while the computer was left running in sleep . I RMA'd the dead seasonic. In the mean time I happened to come accross an extremely good deal on a new PSU, so I bought it (Thermaltake smart m850w PSU) to have a backup and to get my machine working again.

I hooked up the new PSU to GPUs, CPU, fans, ATX power connector, and to all of the SATA devices, (the SSD, the HDD, and the Optical drive). I made sure to connect the data cables to the SATA devices in the same configuration they were in when working properly. The computer boots suc... Read more

A:PSU died, new PSU, bios wont recognize SATA devices, now wont turn on

I had a similar problem when I had an Antec PSU die on me. After I replaced it, my Biostar mobo's BIOS would no longer retain settings, and both my Pioneer DVD burners were completely dead. Not recognized in the BIOS, they would not acknowledge any discs inserted, nothing worked. I also started getting BSODs pointing to a corrupt BIOS. Replacing the burners didn't help. Putting the Pioneer burners in a new machine didn't work.

It turned out that the dying Antec PSU had wrecked the Biostar's BIOS chip and both Pioneer DVD burners. Replacing the BIOS chip was more expensive than buying a new motherboard, and reflashing the chip wasn't possible because the flash utility told me I already had the latest BIOS version. I ended up trashing the board and buying an ASRock board and Samsung burners.

If you get a new motherboard (or try another known-good working PC), and you connect your present SATA devices and they don't work, then the dying Seasonic may have burnt them out, too.

A:computer wont turn on at all!! wont do anything

Computer won't start troubleshooting suggestions

Hi,
Try each one in this general order until problem is fixed:
1) check all your connections including your memory, power connectors, cards, fans and ensure the 4-pin connector for your CPU is installed if your system requires it. If you have removed your memory, make sure it is the correct slot(s). Not all slots work. I don't know if this will prevent the computer from trying to boot. At any rate, every motherboard manual details exactly how RAM should be installed for that particular board. If problem persists:
2) test the power connection with a lamp
3) make sure your on/off switch (if you have one) on your power supply is ON
4) remove the cables from ALL drives and restart
5) also remove unnecessary cards and non-cpu fans
6) Borrow a power supply (sufficient power and appropriate 20 or 24-pin connection)

I've seen this happen when a connector is improperly placed. The motherboard and/or power supply can detect an inappropriate power surge and not even start.
Some people have accidentally joined power connectors to each other, usually when hooking up system fans.

Your system can turn on and start booting to the BIOS with only the motherboard, a power supply and I assume some RAM (though I'm not positive the RAM is requied). It does not even need the monitor, although you obviously won't see what is happening but you will hear the power supply start. In general, with such a fault if the... Read more

Have updated to 8 from XP. Can't use wifi. I can connect but wifi says off and I cannot work out to turn on. I have a generic lap top that never missed a beat under XP. With XP the driver was, per the cd, wireless networking solution by msi. When I check after upgrade it now says ralink technology11g mini pci. Like a lot of people, I have had problems with updates failing, whoever doing them in lots of 5 I have got them through, except 1 from ralink 11g minipci. Greatly appreciate if someone could tell me how to turn wifi on, or how to rerun failed update for driver. I am not super cluey however can handle all the basics. Bob.

Maybe try this:

I'm baffled.

Had to reinstall Windows XP. It appears there are issues with SP2 involving the video graphics card and the sound. Now I'm stuck. I thought that if I chose "do not use this device" under "Device usage" on the display adaptor tab, that it would pick the right adaptor.

Anyway, my screen went blank and I tried to reboot in safe mode and it sticks at mup.sys. I disabled mup and it now sticks at "nid" something or other.

I got the bright idea to use "Windows Narrator" to try and reenable the adaptor but I think the reinstall or the SP2 killed my sound.

Now I'm really stuck. Is there a way to reenable VGA adaptor from the command prompt in recovery mode?

Last night, my computer turned off while I was using it. It wouldn't turn back on, and everything else on the surge protector was working fine. Since I've had problems with power supplies before, I turned the switch to the off position, removed the power cord, and let it cool off, in case it had overheated. When I tried to turn it back on, the power light and the LEDs on the inside blinked on and then back off. They were on for maybe a tenth of a second. During that time, there's no sound of my computer trying to turn on or anything, just the lights. Does anybody have any idea what this might be, or where to begin to troubleshoot??

btw, I know I mentioned LEDs, but I don't have any extensive mods, no overclocking, etc. Just pretty lights.

TIA for any help!!

I have a netbook/notebook with some keys do not work anymore. I am now using an external keyboard but it does not funtion exactly as the built in keyboard. Using the built in key, I can turn some features like turning on the wifi by pressing fn keys and F8. But with the external keyboard, it does not work. I cannot turn on WIFI anymore or any other feature that this netbook has.
 
I am considering replacing the built-in keyboard but do not have budget as of the moment. I tried google but it did not help.

Some wireless adapters allow you to enable/disable radio in their advanced settings but I am not sure if this would work for a wireless adapter disabled via the keyboard.
 
You could disable the wireless adapter you have and purchase a USB wireless adapter like this.

I've got a Lenovo ideapad Z470 laptop and the WiFi modem/card in it won't turn on.

The laptop has a physical switch on the front which turns on/off the wifi.

If I turn the switch to on, an image appears on the screen saying its been turned on and vice versa if I switch it off.

However, Windows isn't showing it as being available in the system tray.

I can connect via ethernet and have tried using the Wifi to connect to two different networks and it looks like the card is the problem.

If you look at my previous posts, they have been about my laptop not connecting to the internet. Perhaps this is why?

Can they be fixed or replaced?

Thanks.

I have done that repeatedly, took out the battery, plugged the bettery into its charger, nothing works. I got this for Christmas just a couple years ago, so its not that old. What is going on? I need an answer ASAP. I have flown across the coutnry to see my brandnew grand son for the holiday weekend for the first time & now I can't take pictures! HELP! Please write sallies2 at the yahoo.
 

A:My cybershot won't turn back on

Sony camera problem.

This could be happening for several reasons. The camera could have a software /firmware fault, or it could be a problem with something preventing the lens from moving as it should.
But it's just as likely to be the Li-ion battery not holding a charge as it used to.
If you have a mains adapter, try that instead of the battery, see if it works then.
You may need to buy a new battery, as they don't last for more than a couple of years, especially with heavy use.
If you can get the screen on using the mains adapter, go into the menu and do a 'factory reset'. Take the memory stick out first.
All faults are repairable, but you would do well to get a quote first, as a new camera may be cheaper, (unfortunately).
The pictures on your memory stick are not affected by camera faults, as a rule, but if you have another one, try it, just in case there is a problem with the edge connector on it.

Hi, a few weeks ago I came home a few hours after having used my computer in the morning to find it off. It would not turn on. I unplugged everything and took off the side panel and found the PSU still warm. I read around on similar postings on this forum and decided it was my PSU. I bought a new one. Still didn't turn on. However, the f-lock led on my keyboard was lit up when the switch on the PSU was flipped on. So I e-mailed my motherboard company, Epox. I recieved some directions that would get rid of electricity still in the board such as holding the power button down for 10 seconds, setting the cmos to 2-3 for a few seconds and putting it back onto 1-2. One of the directions was to remove the round cmos battery, which i did not do because I was unable to reach it enough to remove it. I also took it completely apart and replugged everything in. No such luck. So, I bought another mobo, one just like it but the chipset was nforce3 250 instead of nforce3 ultra. Supported the same hardware, though. Still will not work. So, now i'm wondering if it's the power button on my case. I am probably going to plug my friend's case's power button into my mobo and see if it turns on.
>>>>To summarize-
1)Computer mysteriously turns off.
2)Buy new PSU.
3)Fiddle around with old mobo, but end up buying new one.
4) Still will not turn on. And when I say won't turn on, i mean nothing turns on, moves, makes noise, or lights up.

An easy way to troubleshoot the case power switch is to completely disconnect it from your motherboard. Then take a regular screwdriver, and just quickly touch (short) the two pins that the case's power switch usually connect to.

Hopefully your system will fire up, and you'll know you have a dead power switch!

Hi,
I've just recently had this happen, but I've been here enough to know I may have contracted a nasty.

Last week my system started hanging up and plain not responding. My wireless aircard refused to work in a manner like it was telling me that it was already in use, when it wasn't even plugged in! I couldn't get much to work right so I rebooted in safe mode, ran a couple of scans, which found nothing, rebooted in normal mode and my aircard was working again. Yay.
It worked normal except for the Windows pop up box that says you are offline kept popping up, and I couldn't close it unless I connected to the net via my aircard. Now my AVG has been switched off and I can't get it to turn back on, and my surfing via aircard is noticably slower. And, my power icon in the tray has gone away.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P-105, 32 bit processor, Vista Home Premium, SP 1.
I also have A Squared, AdAware, AVG (free edition), Malware Bytes, Spybot, SuperAntiSpyware installed.

I use this laptop for work and now I'm afraid to put in passwords, account numbers, etc.

Thanks,
Steve

One thing I noticed maybe just today. When the screen shuts off due to time or the lid being closed, it doesn't seem to want to turn back on. I can put into standby and bring it back out and it works just fine. But, I'd rather not have to do that all the time.

A:how to turn on Wifi in sony Vaio

Do you have a physical button or switch on your laptop which you can push? Almost all laptops have this feature so that you can turn the wireless off.

If not then you should be able to force it by going to Start> Control panel

Once opened click on 'Network and Internet'



Afterwards, click on 'Networking and Sharing Center'



From here you want to click on 'Change Adapter Settings'



Now, right click on the wireless adapter listed and click on 'Enable'. This should enable your wi-fi card



Hope This Helps,

Since I installed Windows 10 a few days ago, I haven't used my wifi, but now I find I can't turn it on. At the time of installation the f12 (wifi) key on my HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook was in the off position. Now it won't respond, and I can't turn wifi on any other way. The greyed-out box in the lower right hand corner won't respond (though the airplane mode will). When I'm in Settings: Network & Internet, the slider keeps going back to off. Can't turn it on under Network and Internet: Network Connections, and have already tried disabling and enabling the Wireless Network Connection. Under Manage Wi-Fi settings is some stuff about Wi-Fi Sense, which I'm not interested in -- hope this is not a ploy to make me use it!

Under normal circumstances, the re-enable after a reboot is fine. I can disconnect WiFi from the system tray, and it reconnects after reboot.

But sometimes, I might want wireless to remain disabled after reboot. For example, if I'm doing a database restore, and the database starts synching after a reboot (such as Evernote), it could cause problems :-)

At the moment, I simply switch off the router until the database restore is complete.

Just don`t let it connect.

Doesn`t the laptop have an on off switch for wireless ? Most laptops do.

My wifi suddenly turned off, when I troubleshooted it said that wireless capability was turned off and when I went to turn it on, it was already enabled. I've tried a lot of things including updating just about everything but nothing seems to be working. Help.

My Laptop's been fine for 2 years...when I'm on battery, I switch the wifi off via the switch on the laptop. However, all of a sudden, the Wifi won't turn on again! The switch isn't broken (I've moved it back and forth), and I've tried the software switch ( Fn+F5), but that doesn't work either! I dual boot Windows 8+7, and neither OS has wifi on. I've also tried uninstalling drivers/disabling the adapter via Device Manager, but no luck! I also went into the BIOS, disabled the adapter through there, launched Windows 8, then rebooted and reenabed the Wifi, and that didn't work either =(.EDIT: Windows troubleshooting says "Turn on wireless capability: Use the switch on the front or side of the comptuer, or function keys if available, to enable wireless capability on this computer".My warranty ended over a year ago!Paying to send in the laptop for this would suck. Help!

Try reinstalling the wifi drivers and the energy managment softwares. Just to confirm that is the wifi card showing in device manager.

I've got wireless internet which I access on two laptops and an ipod touch.

Recently, on the ipod touch I have been able to browse for a while then the internet stops loading pages. It shows I am still connected but I have to turn off the WIFI and then turn it back on again and reconnect and everything is ok for a while.

Now it is starting to happen on one of the Windows XP Home laptops.

I browse for a while, then pages stop loading. I am still connected. If I turn the WIFI adapter on the laptop off then on again and reconnect I can surf for a while.

During the period I cannot surf on the laptop I can on the ipod so there is a live connection beyond the router.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

My wife has a toshiba Satellite L645D-S4040 running Windows 7 64 bit. This morning she ran an update and has since lost wifi and Fn F8 does not work. Went to Toshiba site and downloaded and ran the TVAP. It got rid of the Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter and we still can't get the wifi to enable. Unfortunately she does not remember which update it was that she performed. Help.

Update: My wife remembered that the only change she made was to install Secunia PSI from this sites download section.

A:WiFi turned off after update, and won't turn on again

Does FN+F8 key work after installing TVAP?

Did you try a system restore?

I am running Win 8.1 on a Samsung tablet and use Windows Defender for protection. I own the tablet it is not part of any network.
I was searching the net and Defender reported malware. After a bit of a tussle the malware seemed to be removed but Defender was turned off, so I have no protection. I went into the Control Panel/Security Centre and it reported this and had a button at the end of the message for turning Defender back on. However the button did not work. It was visible but did not seem to be enabled. When I clicked on the defender app icon there was a message saying Defender was turned off at the Group Policy level and was controlled by the Administrator. As it is my own PC I assume I am the Administrator, but this did not seem to make any difference. I searched for Group Policy but nothing was found.
How can I turn Defender back on?

A:Cannot Turn Windows Defender back On

Hello Punchy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Did you install a 3rd party AV program?

If so, they will often disable Windows Defender by default, and Windows Defender cannot be turned on until the 3rd party program is uninstalled.

Thank you for following this thread. I have recently recieved a refurbished X1 Yoga which has run extremely well until three days ago. When I first recieved the laptop I noticed only that the battery charged light and the screen notification were not aligned. The light next to the charger would indicate it was charged long before the screen would agree. This wasn't that big of a deal, but it may have led to my next issue. Three days ago the touchscreen and mouse started to malfunction. On the right side of the screen there was the mouse and three circles frozen, but I could still use the mouse through intuition and some guesswork. The visible point of the mouse would flicker back and fourth between where it actually was and the right side of the screen. Later that evening I closed the laptop and it died. I tried to charge the laptop, but no matter how long it was charged or how long I held the power button nothing happened. Essentially, it became a very expensive brick. Yesterday I charged the laptop again just out of desperation and it came to life. It made a sound like a dial-up and just turned on as if nothing happened. Everything seemed to be all right until it crashed again, and now is currently dead. Any suggestions? The laptop is still under warranty since I got it about three weeks ago, I just can't turn it on to use Lenovo Support.

Last night I decided to let my game idle while I went to bed. As the computer is in my room and I didn't want the screen light to keep me up I decided to turn down the brightness. So I went to the right side windows 8 menu clicked on settings and pressed brightness. Now I accidentally turned it down to zero and I let my mouse go.

So now my screen is black. This wouldn't be a problem if the brightness buttons work but they don't (didn't install the boot camp drivers)
Is there any way I can recover this? Or would I have to reinstall my pc?

PC specs: mid 2010 13inch Mac book pro, no bootcamp drivers

A:Turned down brightness to zero, can't turn it back up.

Try to start Windows in a safe mode and change it there.

I have tried everything! My roommate turned it off and I can't get it back on. I have Windows XP Pro. I went to control panel and phone and modem and can't find anything. I also went into internet options and can't find it there. The volume settings are on and are on high. What is M0L0? I saw a piece of paper in her hand writing and that is in the advanced tab in the modem properties. Can you help?

A:How Do I turn Modem Volume back on?

Modem init strings

M0 Speaker always off
M1 Speaker on during connection
M2 Speaker always on (very noisy)
L0 Lowest volume
L1 Lowest volume (redundant)
L2 Medium volume
L3 Maximum volume

So change the init string to M1L2
