    Re: Unable to enable wireless on computer

    Hi, I think I found the issue, open:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    and add a hash (#) in front of blacklist hp_wmi
    save, close gedit and reboot.

    You may still have to turn wireless on with the switch or key combination
    Thanks

    I should probably tell you that my Zorin OS had reset, so will I have to do the steps again?

    Hi, post the script again so we can see what the situation is now before you make any changes.

    Do you mean you reinstalled?

    here. And yes, I mean that It's been re installed. Well really, I replaced the Other Zorin OS withe the same OS. Also, I'm thinking about changing my current OS to Zorin Os 6 Lite. Will this change the script in any way?

    Yes, it can change the script information.

    I have went over all the posts in this thread and everything I can think to do is already listed so you can apply the changing to the new install one at a time and see if that helps if not then I am out of idea's.
    Thanks

    Unfortunately, it still does not work. But I want to ask where to find an app called Hardware Drivers.

    Hi, your driver is already loaded for your card and the firmware and your driver does not show up in hardware drivers.
    Thanks

    Re: Unable to enable wireless on computer

    So wait, I already have the driver for my wireless card, and that It's loaded? If so, then why doesn't the wireless switch work on Ubuntu? I thought it was because the wireless card and/or the driver just doesn't work on Ubuntu.
    Also, I won be here for the newt few days. So please don't ask for a reply
