Well, if the charger works on one laptop and not on the other one, I suspect, power port is messed up.
It may go further, like motherboard problem, causing the issues with internet connection.
Hard to say.

Laptop would have to be seen by a Technician who can have his hands on the system physically.
If the MOBO is the problem in all honesty your options at that point are limited.
Replace MOBO (Not cost effective) or purchase a new laptop.
The price to replace a laptop MOBO is most likely going to be the same as buying a new laptop.
You can contact the manufacturer of the laptop and see what a replacement MOBO would cost.

ok, cant believe this happened. Everything was fine untils a couple weeks ago and then there were just multiple problems. First caps lock would randomly be on and it would not turn off, then buttons wouldnt work when i pressed them unless i pressed them i harder, then the laptop charger stopped working and then like 2 days later the internet doesnt work.

It says on my laptop that the wireless button has been disabled and that i should enable it. Could that be the problem? Im not sure how to enable it though.

The wireless would only enable the capability to use a wireless internet, kb or mouse.
I don't believe it will help in the issue you are having.

To enter the Bios turn the system on.
At the first Post screen where it is counting up the memory normally you would press the DEL key to enter Bios. Setup or CMOS depending on what it is called on your system.
Look at the bottom of the screen and it should tell you what key it is.
Once in there DO NOT change anything unless asked to as this could render your system unbootable.
Look through the sections Advanced or On-board Peripherals for the Wireless enabled\disabled[/b] line.
Highlight it and then at the bottom of the window it should tell you how to change it.
Once done then click the F10 key to Save and Exit
You will then be prompted to click Y to verify the Save and Exit
Do so and then the system should reboot.
Let me know if this works or if you do not find the entry.
