    I suggest you go to the Device Manager from Control Panel and double-check the device list. My first guess is that you're having a driver issue with your WiFi radio.

    Click "Network and Sharing Center."

    Click "Change Adapter Settings."

    Right-click the icon that reads "Wireless." Click "Enable." The HP notebook wireless light will illuminate, indicating that the wireless adapter is now on.

    Do you have a mechanical wifi on/off switch somewhere on the machine? Maybe it accidentally got turned off.
