My friend has requested that I help fix his laptop for him. He was unable to access admin abilities as he had forgotten the admin account password.
I was able to fix this by reinstalling windows 7. It sounds like the extreme solution, but he was ok with it and suggested it in the first place. It didn't worry him that all the data would be lost (there wasn't much to begin with).
The problem now is that I can't get the wireless working. The wireless is enabled, I pushed the button for it and there is an orange light on the computer that turns on and off with this button. I just can't see a list of networks when I click the icon in the tool tray.
There is definitely a network to see as I am doing this in the same room as this computer that I'm using to write this post.
The laptop is a Toshiba satellite L50 - B.
I formatted the hard drive and installed windows 7 home premium 32 bit.
