CAN NOT TURN ON WIRELESS RADIO

Wold you help me please?  Mine's a V200.  I can not remember what happened but I can not turn on the wireless radio on.  It says the hardware is turned on (the switch is always on), but when I press Fn5 and click ON, nothing happens.  Is there a software I may have accidentally removed?

You're welcome.
Maybe simple reinstall of drivers is not enough.
Try update for your BIOS, then reinstall chipset drivers and then - bluetooth drivers.

Re: CAN NOT TURN ON WIRELESS RADIO

A million thanks again for the response!  I discovered that IBM is just 6 floors down, so I went there and left my laptop with them.  They said they will reformat my laptop.  If it still doesn't work, they might need to replace the hardware.  Thanks again for the help!  Seeing a response helped me get through the frustration!  =)
