WiFi problems caused by operating system errors can usually be resolved by driver updates. If you have updated your wireless network card and are still experiencing the same problem, you will need to search for other solutions.

For Lenovo branded laptops, the WiFi card is disabled due to the bios battery usually removed during computer cleaning. As a result, you may not be able to use your wireless card after computer maintenance.

When you reinstall the removed bios battery, you will see that the WiFi card is not activated. In order to enable WiFi adapter in Lenovo PC, you must install the stable software of the manufacturer on your computer.

If the notebook manufacturer does not release Drivers that support the new operating system for older models, you should spend some time searching for compatible drivers over the Internet. To turn on Lenovo wireless card, you will need Lenovo’s Energy Management software.

    Hi there! I’ve followed your instructions twice. After I install the program and restart the computer I can’t get the program to open. When I try pressing FN + F5, all it does is dim the display’s brightnexx. My laptop is a Lenovo Legion Y530 (Model name: 81FV). I’m running Windows 10 Home. Please help!

      Hello Cesar!

      Download the Energy Management software for Lenovo Legion Y530 model here, then install it after removing the previous installation from the computer. Restart your computer and you can enable Wi-Fi by pressing the FN + F8 button.

      The solution method here is the method not related to the driver problem. If you have just installed the operating system, download and install the Wi-Fi driver here according to the model of your laptop (Legion Y530).

      After doing this, I would be glad if you inform me.
