Let's hear about this reset.

And more about the Lenovo, OS and more. Here I can disable or enable the WiFi with FN+F5 but we have too little detail to guess that's it.

The reset brings you onto a blue screen that says "Sorry, we ran into a problem." Also, the FN+F5 thing didn't work. I use windows 10

The blue screen is telling us more than your top post.

The FN+F5 is for my Lenovo. You have to see if it applies or is a different key on your machine.
