Have you checked that they're not in some way damaged (for example torn in half - that could cause problems)? I don't really know what you mean by 'broke it'.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Laptop hardware is exceedingly fragile. It's entirely possible you broke something physically without even noticing.

Check your drivers is another option, but it sounds like something is broken in a more "in twain" sense.

Chuck Norris once kicked SRAW so hard, SRAW went above light speed, traveled back in time and hit the Earth with tremendous force. And several millions of years later it is still believed that it was a meteor that caused the dinosaurs to die out.

another question when i connected my external wireless adapter this time it said something about it not being connected to the highspeed usb port so how can i tell if it is the highspeed fancy usb?
i always though it was in the back because thats where windows usually tells you to hook em

i have 1 in the side

2 in the back

Not that there is any real rule against that thing you just did, but we DO have an edit button. The normal reason to double post is if your posts have a large gap in time between them for purposes of clarity. You're unclarifying posts! For shame!
