How come I cannot get on the Internet with my laptop after dropping it?

by on June 17, 2013

Q: I dropped my laptop last night it is a GE620 and when I logged onto it today it was unable to access the Internet wired or wireless. I opened up the back and saw no problems in the hardware and don’t see any problems in the device manager. I’m uncertain what steps to take now. I have reinstalled the S Bar program and have tried all the shortcuts and unless I’m a total idiot there is no switch on this laptop.

    If your laptop isn’t working with even wired Ethernet, I’d suggest talking to MSI or a local authorized repair shop.

    Your Wifi antenna is turned on and turned off by the Fn+F8 keys. That symbol on the F8 key is MSI’s “Wifi” icon.

    There should be a status LED that looks just like it below the keyboard that should light up when it’s turned on.
