How come our laptop will not stay connected to the Internet after having the screen replaced?

by on November 26, 2010

Q: Our laptop was dropped and we have had to replace the screen. All seems to be working fine but it will not connect to the internet (wireless). It did connect previously, since replacing the screen, but kept losing connection, but tonight it won’t even connect. It is an Advent 7109A.
any help much appreciated

    If the laptop was dropped it may have also damaged wireless card in the laptop or even if it was plugged into the laptop it could have been damaged.

    My suggestion is first try seeing if you can get out to the internet with a cable plugged into the laptop.
    If you can connect with a cable then, if you have access to another wireless thumb drive or wireless card, try plugging that in and see if it is able to detect and connect to the internet.

    If both these steps above allow you to connect i would say that the wireless in your laptop is more than likly damaged.
