wireless network card no longer turns on, but the disabled light on exteral comp is lit.
also the wireless manager in the control panel will not open.
also there is no wireless connection icon in network connections.
also the nvidia nforce networking controller for local area connection is disabled while reading as enabled.

Computer acts like wifi never existed.
All hardware is intergrated. Computer is one year old. No unusual activity, connections, or websites prior to occurance.

Windows xp sp2. Up to date drivers.

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

If the "wireless disabled" lamp is lit as you say, you just need to move the slider-switch across to enable it. It's usually located next to the wireless indicator-lamp.
