Did you try restarting your laptop ?

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 year ago.
Please press and hold the power button of your laptop until it shuts down.
Then again press the power button to restart.
After that you'll be able to use your cursor and turn off the airplane mode.
Please let me know if you don't know how to turn off the airplane mode.
