Fn+F5 wifi switch not working. X301: win 7 pro 64: Radio button highlit no action when pressed.

Can't turn wifi radio on. Hardware slider switch OK, Fn+F5 shows radio button, illuminates when focus on button, does not operate when button pressed. So no wifi available. X301 Intel 5300 AGN: driver version /1-13-10 Device working properly : do not allow PC to turn off device: media state enabled. Windows network diagnostics - 'There might be a problem with the wifi driver' Lenovo toolbox - diagnostics :- available and capable to send and receive data. (obviously not true!) PCI express status test passed, no other tests can run because no network can be seen. Other laptops adjacent to X301 can see the wifi network signal. Tried, disable and uninstall drivers and device. Latest updates from Microsoft, Lenovo and Intel. Rolling back and restore have become corrupted and trying these fails. Has anyone any other ides to try please? Thanks
