Hey guys, my apologies if i’m not in the correct category.
So here is the deal, my dad upgraded his HP pavillion dv7 notebook to windows 10 about 2 years ago. Ever since he has been unable to use any wireless features of the device. Basically it’s stuck on airplane mode through the hardware switch and it won’t turn back on… He recently purchased a new laptop and gave his old one to me to fiddle around with. I tried installing drivers, shut off and on the network adapter but no avail. I did read that many people faced the same problem after upgrading, so I thought the problem might be windows it self so I switched to Zorin OS instead, hoping it would somehow fix the issue, it did not -_-’ . After some more googling I found a method for windows that could fix the problem through the registery editor. By adjusting the value of RadioEnable_DWORD from 1 to 0. I don’t know if this truly would be able to fix the problem but my question is, is there an equivelant on Zorin OS to this? If so, where can I find this?
Sorry for the long message and thanks in advance to anyone willing to take their time of day to help me out!
