    Try removing it from device manager in control panel, rebooting and see if it picks it up again.

    Also double check for a physical button or key combination (Fn + SomeKey) that physically turns on the wireless radio. Seems like the first thing anyone would check but believe me it is often overlooked (especially if you have a small child in the house who enjoys pressing buttons).
