Windows 10: Airplane mode randomly turns on and off

    Airplane mode randomly turns on and off


    I'll be playing on the computer, doing whatever, and airplane mode will just turn on, then turn off. It's been happening for quite a while, but only recently has it become a huge issue.


    I have an MSI GE62 and Windows 10. As far as I can tell, nothing gets pressed to turn it on and off. I've tried turning off power saving modes and I've looked up a lot of different answers but all they do is tell me how to turn airplane mode off. This is very annoying when I'm playing online games or watching streams.


    Please let me know if there is a way to make this stop happening or, better yet, get rid of airplane mode all together- I'm never going to need it. Thank you

    My guess is the hot key function is being entered accidentally while your gaming. On most laptops its the Fn and one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard. Some will let you toggle the Fn key so all you have to press is an F key to adjust volume etc. They don't do the normal F7 or F8 function. They do the Airplane mode by default. You might be thinking your doing a game save but actually turning airplane mode on and off. Toggling the Fn function in the BIOS (if its an option) may fix it.

    Thank you, but there are times when I am pressing no buttons at all and it is happening. I do not think the issue is related to a hotkey issueThank you, but there are times when I am pressing no buttons at all and it is happening. I do not think the issue is related to a hotkey issue

    Solved


    Hello

    I'm from Belgium and had the same problem with my new MSI GT72 6QD-883FR.
    I think I've solved the problem after many hours spend on trying fix it.
    Here is the solution : https://forum-fr.msi.com/index.php?topic=7544.0
    Use a translator if you need.

    I hope it will work for you too !

    (Sorry if I made mistakes with my English )

    Thank you, but I don't think it worked. You were telling me to repair the Bluetooth device in programs and features, correct? Unfortunately, I still have the same problem. Thank you for the advice though
