Wireless is disable - won't turn on

My wireless wouldn't turn on this morning on my Satellite L745D-S4230. The FN 8 key says it is off and gives the message: "Wireless communication is disbled. Please turn on the wireless communication switch". There is no wireless switch on the side or front of my laptop. I tried installing new drivers - no response. I tried going to the wireless mobility center - it is off and the option to turn on is grayed out.  I also clicked on the wireless icon in the TBS folder in the Toshiba file in the Programs folder. -  no response. I uninstalled the drivers and restarted my computer so it could re-install them - it couldn't find them to re-install. I finally performed a system restore. It still doesn't work.  It is just simply switched off and I don't know how to get it on. I know y wireless connection is working because I have another computer that is functioning with it. Can someone please advise?

Update: I just followed some advice on Yahoo questions - tried taking the battery out for 5 minutes, then replacing it and starting in safe mode. The wireless came on and seems to be working well. :smileyhappy:

Hi! Good for you. It's amazing what a restart can fix. I guess the old computers mind gets confused; kind of like mine, and a reboot clears it.:smileyvery-happy:  I wish I had a restart

Thanks for the reply anyway. I had tried restarting it several times but had not thought to take the battery out and start it in safe mode. But I'm glad it worked.
