wireless worked before, was demonstrated it by previous owner
laptop doesn't seem to even realize it has wireless capabilities, no wireless icons show up
have installed all internet related looking drives from samsung, still no attempt to use wireless by machine
have attempted wireless both right next to and far away from router
