So i ran into many problems with my laptop but one of them is not being able to connect to wifi without the adapter from my pc which is odd because when i upgraded to windows 10 it seemed to work just fine, but now that i downgraded to 7 again using my cd it needs an usb adapter to connect to the wifi properly. I really thought but only after i upgraded to 10 that i shouldn't have done that and now i think my laptop is pretty much done for which is sad because i just got it and now i have to take it to repair

If anyone has any idea how to fix it or where did i mess up please tell me.

First I would check if the WiFi adapter is being detected. Press Start > typing in device manager > hit enter. In the device manager expand the Network Adapters and check if you can see your laptops WiFi adapter there. If you don't see it its possible the WiFi adapter is loose or dead. If you see it and it has a yellow exclamation mark, you will have to go to your laptop manufactures website and download and install the driver.
