I have an HP laptop that lost wireless connectivity. It cannot see any of the networks available in the area. When I try to repair the connection, it says that a switch on the front or side of the machine is off. I was not aware of any switch. How should I try to proceed?

The f-12 on my HP laptop turns the wireless off and on.

Yes, there is usually a function key or inconspicuous switch on the front or side that turns wireless on and off. Finding it can be a pain sometimes.
