    Dell airplain mode is grayed out after reinstalling windows 10


    Hello, I got a refurbished dell laditude e5540 and reinstalled windows cause the hdd died, so i got an ssd and installed windows 10, it all works much faster and well but one big problem, the wifi cant work anymore, im stuck to the wall with an ethernet cable unable to keep a posture like that for hours and decided i need to get this fixed, i contacted dell but my warenty was out as usual,i mena why wouldnt it be and they denied strait up to help me unless i pay 300$ about dollars which is almost as much as the laptop, 400$, and its not even my fault, no hardware upgrade damage as ik how to upgrade a computer, no water damage etc... i belive its the drivers so i went to dell and did all the drivers but um, well that ofc didnt work, tried a bios update, nope wasnt helpin. and now im here.

    If someone could help me, i would greatly appreciate it, coding 6hrs a day on a wall is no fun, removes all the fun of coding

    :)

    [Solved] Windows 10 keeps reinstalling KB3119142

    I noticed quite some time ago that KB3119142 (Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package) kept reinstalling itself for some reason. At least once daily. Sometimes up to several times a day. I just ignored it. It didn't seem to be doing any harm. And I figured they'd eventually fix it. Well...days turned into weeks, weeks into months, with no end to the problem in sight. It dragged on unsolved for at least the last few months. Literally reinstalling itself hundreds of(at least a hundred, felt like more) times in that period of time.

    So I finally googled it a couple days ago. And just got around to fixing it today. Which appears to have worked. And it couldn't have been easier to do. I feel so stupid to have let it intimidate me for so long.*Oops! Dell airplain mode is grayed out after reinstalling windows 10 :oops:
    Below are links to the thread that I got the fix idea from, and the official MS support info page for KB3119142(from which I quoted the above).

  3. Upgrading cpu and mother without reinstalling windows 10

    in most cases you can do exactly what you are trying to do by taking the os drive and plugging it into the new system and booting in safe mode. once in safe mode open a command prompt as administrator and type "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1" hit enter. then type "start devmgmt.msc" hit enter again and device manager should open up. after that click the "view" tab and select "show hidden devices". then you just expand each list and unistall all the drivers that are slightly transparent. once you are all done go ahead and reboot the system and install all the new drivers. in most cases this is enough and does not need anything more done.

    edit: just boot the os into safe mode the first time and let it install drivers then reboot and fallow the steps i listed above. back with windows vista and earlier windows versions this would be problematic but sense 7 ive found that swapping boards from different manufacturers and even amd to intel has become mostly doable. ive done it a handfull of times.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
