E145 - Turn on wifi switch without hardware button

Hi guys, I have a strange problem with one Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E145 notebooks. At first I was not able to start in windows the wireless but after multiple uninstall/install/update of the drivers I managed to do it. Still Windows shows WiFi on but in the same time off and I can't see any WLAN networks. The windows diagnose of the WLAN adapter shows - wireless capability is turned off The Lenovo Diagnostic Tools shows - Warning Hardware state is off I've checked BIOS, check the settings of the card and I don't have a hardware switch on the notebook. Is there any way that I could "reset" this lock or enable it somehow? Thanks in advance


I forgot to add that the notebook is with Windows 10 64bit and there are not much apps and drivers for it.



I found the solution. I removed the BIOS battery for 5 Min and after this everything worked. Still if someone knows another approach it will be better.
