3. Some models don't have such a feature in the BIOS.

Have you checked your product manual ?

Perhaps I'm wrong but I'm 99% sure the info you seek is found there or in the manual online. You can check the Function ('Fn') keys there....but you've only provided part of the product number so there's no way to check further for us. Up to you from here.

OK . . .

Enter the BIOS per the laptop's procedure, disable the radio. Is this a trick question? Or did you or they leave something out?

Question number two is non-specific. If it's disabled, go back to the BIOS and re-enable it. Or are they asking how to do it via the OS? Really sounds like a trick question also to me.
