Hello. I have a sony VAIO laptop with Windows Vista on it. Recently, it seems that my wireless switch on the laptop has some sort of short or is malfunctioning. Everytime I push it to the right to the on position, the light will only cut on for a quick second. Sometimes when I spend up to 10+ minutes wiggling the button around then the light will stay on. Even once you eventually get it on, the smallest touch or wiggle of the laptop will cause it to cut off. I have searched Google endlessly for a fix hoping to find a way around this. While searching Google, it seemed that there could be a way to permanently enable the wifi card using the network and share center through the OS. My question to you all is, is there a way to fix this by just cutting on a wireless switch permanently from the software and bypassing the switch or is the only way to go into the laptop and fix the switch issue? Please let me know anything you think may help. Here is a picture of a similar laptop: http://laptops.techfresh.net/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/sony-vaio.jpg. The wireless switch is on the fright right of the laptop near the corner. Thanks
