Can’t switch out window 10 laptop from airplane mode to wifi.

I am experiencing an issue that I can’t turn on wifi in my window 10 laptop, when I turn it on, within a few seconds it turns off and moves back to airplane mode.

It’s a dell Latitude | E6530 .originally window 7 was installed on it and then upgraded to window 10, had no issue. Recently Microsoft realest their university update shortly after this upgrade this issue stared. I did no program installation (except Kapersky total internet security) or change any settings.
What I have already done;

In device management right clicked on most devices and did an update.

Downloaded driverupdate.net and updated all drives

Unchecked "Turn off the device to save power".

Uninstalled driverupdate.net in Device Manager and removed (uninstall) the Wireless NIC. Shut down, Installed Wireless_18.40.4_PROSet64_Win10, did a restart did not solve removed version 18.40.4 restart Upgraded to _19.2.0_PROSet64_Win10, Same process with the wired nic.

After installing the new software gone back in to the nic properties and made sure the power management is turned off

I connected a wireless USB and same behavior. (It installed correctly I see it in the device manager and in the wifi and network adopter list)

Made sure all the protocols below are enabled as shown
* Client for Microsoft Networks
* File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
* QoS Packet Scheduler
* Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver
0 Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol <- No
* Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
* Microsoft LLDP Protocol Driver
* Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
* Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder

Did a Windows 10 Repair: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Upgrade to Windows 10 selected Keep Everything

Did a re-installation of Windows 10 from the ground up.

Wifi started working but after a short while the issue is back

I again did some of the above plus from dell site did a BOIS update. No luck

You need to use Powercfg to set the Active Profile to Balanced (or whatever). Airplane mode was made too sticky so you need to get rid of it this way.

Open an Admin Command Prompt

Powercfg -list (to see the power GUID profiles)
Powercfg –setactive Scheme_GUID

See the TechNet Article below

Airplane mode turns back on a second after tuning it off.
(I ran the cmd again and got same results)

To be clear about powercfg, you would use this to change the default plan (* beside the default plan). Did you do this?

No. I ran the Powercfg -list cmd and I don't see airplane listed (to see the power GUID profile).

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I saw that. There is something wrong if the Airplane Mode is running and there is no power profile.

Downloaded driverupdate.net and updated all drives  <-- I don't use this, I use the manufacturer's update program.

Did a re-installation of Windows 10 from the ground up [using the media link  <-- That should work.

Is there a Dell Power Manager (3rd party) application?  Lenovo has one. Look through that for power plans (that may be additional to Windows).

Look for a Power Manager driver (Device Manager, System Devices). Lenovo has one and I do not know about Dell. Update this if there is one.

Update BIOS and Chipset both (from Dell).

Dell also released a - Updated Thermal Management Support for Windows 10 operating system, but giving me error 25025. Based on what I've seen online this is related to java. do you have any idea about this error?

It is the kind of update I was thinking of. Do you need BIOS and Chipset to precede the update?

Abraham DeutschIT professionalAuthor Commented:
I already update both but I'll reset the bios to factory default and then reinstall the update maybe it will work.

Please let us know. There must be something wrong here somewhere.

I did a bios factory reset and did not solve the issue

The computer may not be fully Windows 10 compliant. What else?  You have done everything you could have done and the hardware does not work well with Windows 10.

Is there a component that with upgrading it will help or it over with this machine?

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
You can try a new Wireless Network card with a new and different driver. That might help, but no guarantee at all.

Abraham DeutschIT professionalAuthor Commented:
The fact a USB wireless adapter does not work either, isn't this crossing out the possibility about a wireless card?
0
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Yes, that crosses out the Wireless card possibility.

I do not know precisely what is wrong with your machine except that it may not be truly Windows 10 compliant or needs the Vendor to supply new drivers not yet available.
