I was having really bad issues with my Y560p laptop, so I did a full restore. Afterward my wireless was not working at all, not even detectable in device manager, switch and fn +f5 only showing the bluetooth. Tried installing drivers from the website with no luck. Tried a lot of other suggested things off the forum with no success.
Now I am looking at the BIOS, and I see that the WLAN is set to "disabled," but there seems to be no way for me to enable it, as it is greyed out (pressing up or down skips over it as well). Also F9 looks like it should restore 'setup defaults' but when I push the button it just beeps at me.
Is there something I am missing here? Thanks in advance.

Anyone? To make it clear, yes there was a password to get in to the BIOS, and i ifigured out what it was. Now that I am in it won't allow me to change the LAN option.
Edit: I am seeing now in my BIOS that under security, it says "Supervisor Password Is: Set" and that the "Set Supervisor Password" field is greyed out. I don't remember ever setting any kind of bios administrator password. I bought this computer at Fry's about a year ago and it has been only in my posession the whole time. I don't see any way to enter the BIOS as an administrator, nor any way to even be allowed to attempt to type in the administrator password, if it does happen to be a password i know. I would really appreciate some help on this. I am IN NO WAY trying to by pass the password.
Edit 2: I was just reading the user's manual and the only thing it says about the supervisor password is "If a SVP is set, it must be entered in order to get acess to the bios setup utility to change the system configuration." I entered the SVP, yet I can't change the system configuration, nor will it allow me to remove my own SVP.
