    1st thing to do for troubleshooting is to check Device Manager...
    Any Yellow !'s ? ?

      One thing you can try is a new CMOS battery...part # CR2032...available anywhere.

        Thanks for your suggestion.
        is there any way we can nail down it to CMOS issue.

        Replace the battery...then you'll know if that's the issue or not.

            As far as your wireless, does it have a switch somewhere on the sides or in front?
            Did you try Function + F2?
            Did you make sure it's turned on in the BIOS?
            When you checked device manager did you also check to make sure your wireless device was showing up there?
