I really tried. The instructions in the manual said to check the signon screen for the symbol for wifi that shows the signal going out in both directions. It's not there.
That was page 141, I think, since I tried that, after trying the hot keys, first. It referred me to pages that made no sense to me--to go to the Device Manager and see if wifi is recognized--I looked under devices, and whatever seemed to apply, but it did not do what the manual said--though it did say that some of the instructions were for advanced users. The message I got most was to ask myself (admin) for help.
I have called Toshiba before. When they put in 4 new parts,all 4 were listed on the paper that came back with the computer.. I have taken so many notes, I cannot find it, but they refused to tell me even what the other 2 were despite knowing it was no secret--I have to get REALLY lucky to get someone decent.
In short, I got nowhere today. But I ran their Driver Tuner which is supposed to check and download all the outdated etc drivers--if I buy the !@#% program. That scan said the Windows driver was either improperly installed or out of date (seems to agree with reimage). It also said 28 devices were out of date and I could download them from the websites but wifi as far as I know, has no website--I need to take a closer look to see if the websites are listed--I was focused on finding wifi--the hacker seems to have deleted the 2 icons I need to make it work. Now what? For the record, when I restarted DSL, wifi did not install. I realized the battery was out, and it seems to do more than provide power, and begged her to let me try again with the battery plugged in, but she refused. That was all I could think of to do. She was not helpful--her life is denying what other people experience (back to the Toshiba website again--another redirect).
I just found a number of videos that were not there yesterday. I didn't install them. Now they are gone, but there is a lot of music that was not in the media center before.
She put favorites on the same list as control panel, computer, etc next to the start menu. One of her favorites is LogMeIn from Toshiba, which allows remote access. I password protected it, and it says no remote users are online at this time.
BTW: The text on this site sometimes gets huge, tiny, huge again while the page starts scrolling--I don't know what finally stops it. And another redirect to the Toshiba website. Now, another, and this page scrolled up.
