Hi,

So I have a HP laptop with Windows 7 and just recently my computer hasn't been able to connect to my internet. I'm not sure if I got a virus, but I ran malwarebytes and it didn't find anything.

It was working fine a couple days ago and then the next time I turned it on it seemed fine but I noticed the date had changed and the year said 2009. I changed the date to the actual date but since then my laptop won't connect to the internet. I tried running it in safe mode w/networking and it still won't connect to the internet.

 

I tried doing the troubleshooting stuff and it ends up saying "There may be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection Adapter".

I know my wi-fi is on and the light on my keyboard is on but when I open HP connection manger it says that the wi-fi has been disabled by the Mobility Center.

I tried opening up Windows Mobility Center but I don't see anything where I can turn on the wi-fi.

I've also checked my Network Connections and my Wireless connection is diasbled and when I try to enable it, it says "enabling" but it never actually turns on and stays disabled.

I don't have an ethernet cable so I'm not sure if it's just the wi-fi or my computer in general.
