For a start, turn off CAPS LOCK - it's considered to be shouting & many will ignore you.

Did the laptop come with Windows 7 or have you installed it later? Are you sure there are drivers available for the wireless card - check the manufacturer's website if necessary. Some Toshiba laptops have a separate wireless switch on the front edge - if it's there make sure it is in the 'on' position. The usual key combination, as far as I recall, is Fn and F8 pressed at the same time (not F8 on its own) - there should be an LED that lights up on the front edge of the laptop when the wireless adapter is on.

Why are you SHOUTING, writing in all caps in netiquette is SHOUTING, please turn off the caps lock.

Check in BIOS settings to ensure Wireless is Enabled !

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Yep, please don't use caps lock when you looks for help.

As johnr mentioned, you should press Fn key and F8 key at the same time to activate wireless adapter on your laptop (read laptop guide to learn more). At the same time you should have installed correct wireless adapter driver on your laptop.
