Sounds like you need some drivers (no pun intended).

Find out what chipset you have (use Everest: http://www.majorgeeks.com/EVEREST_Fr...ion_d4181.html). Then go to the manufacturer's web site and download the ones you need.

Drivers are the instructions your computer needs to use the hardware that is in your laptop. Without them, it can't use them.
