|Hi peeps and thanks for checking this out.|
I have an Acer 5920G Aspire laptop and it has been working wonderfully for the last few years. However, as is rather common for this model, the DC power cable needed to be replaced as no power was being sent to the mobo. This chap at the college did this for me and it now all works again.
So I booted up but the wireless card, whilst still detected, would not connect. I press the keyboard hardware button to enable the wireless and it says across the screen 'Wireless LAN Disabled'. It used to turn it on and off respectively.
The guy who did this for me mentioned perhaps he had placed the two antenna on the wrong parts of the card (Aux and Main with the white and black cables which come from the screen) so I had swapped them over myself on the card yet I get the same problem.
I randomly stripped the whole machine apart including removing the screen but that did nothing to help.
Could it be a hardware fault with the radio antenna or could the card have simply faded and needs replacing?
I've updated drivers and even system roll backed to a time when it worked, to no avail.
Any advice or help on this matter shall be greatly appreciated.
