If the card works under windows and not in Linux, is a driver issue in Linux.  Ubuntu support would be the logical place to inquire for assistance.

 

If the card is not working at all, then you may have a hardware error to deal with.  That would necessitate replacing the card itself.  If you are under warranty, a service center will be the best option, if not under warranty, find a replacement made for your notebook and install following steps from the maintenance manual.

If your laptop was shipped with the Windows 7 then the card may not have drivers for Windows 8 or 10, or the card itself may not be compatible with Windows 8 / 10.  I would try loading Windows OS that came installed with the laptop, then see if the card works.  If still not working you will need to purchase a replacement WiFi card found in your service / maintenance manual parts listing.

 

Good luck.
