Formatted laptop - now not recognizing wireless

Seems like this is the week for problems ...
I have an old Compaq F572US that I formatted this week. I used the HP recovery disk and have had no problems previously getting everything back on board. This time the wireless light is orange instead of blue even in the on position. I can connect with an ethernet cable but when I disconnect and open the network and sharing ctr I can't even open the wireless asst. link. I've used the control panel with no better luck. Wireless asst doesn't respond at all.
I've reset the modem. Other laptops have wireless connections so I'm guessing there's a problem with the wireless card? I'm not a computer whiz as all of you are, but I can follow instructions. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
