Acer :: 7730 WiFi Button

Feb 22, 2010

A friend of mine has an Acer 7730 and I think his WiFi button is broke. Every time he presses it, it spouts a random set or r[]'s when the light flashes (every 5secs ish). It was suggested he had a virus and so a full reinstall was done, but now I've looked at it I think its a dodgy key! The original keyboard has been replaced as I think something was spilt on it, but of course the keys down the left are seperate.

So long story short, he cant get on the internet as pressing the key makes any text go rrrr[[[[[]]]]]] etc etc. Is there anyway to enable WiFi without this button? and can it be replaced?

Dell :: XPS 1340 Volume Control Button/missing WIFI Button

May 16, 2009

Ok after 3 days of using the 1340 I just realized the button on the top panel that you can use to increase/decrease volume stopped working. I had updated the latest drivers from Dell site but not sure if that is the reason.

Also non of the other buttons that are for DVD work either. And I know they were working when I got the laptop and only thing I have done is update with latest drivers.

Acer :: Aspire 7730

Jan 25, 2009

Acer Aspire 7730 584G16Mn System bios v0.3509

I want to run xp on this pre-installed vista home basic laptop and to cut a long story short have installed xp in Sata Mode: Ide because all the other methods tried ie:nlite slipstreaming have not worked for me

Now I have xp working I would like to enable AHCI mode in the bios but the various tutorials Ive looked at so far have been unsuccessful.

Has anyone who has this model Aspire 7730 been successful in this procedure or knows a way that has worked for others?

I repeat that this should be a procedure that is Aspire 7730 specific as I feel this is the key.

Acer :: Aspire 7730 Subwoofer Volume

Aug 8, 2009

I've got an Aspire 7730 which is about a month old. Everything is working fine except the subwoofer seems to be very weak. You need to put your ear up against it to hear anything at all so it's more or less useless as is. My brother's 5920 has a very good subwoofer and the sound output is excellent from it.

Would anyone know if this is normal for the 7730 or do I have a faulty subwoofer?

Dell XPS L501X :: Button Greyed Out / Unable To Turn WiFi On

Apr 18, 2013

L501X, working fine until this morning when I was unable to connect to the internet via my wireless connection.  Two other laptops can connect as normal.  If I hardwire the laptop the connection comes back.  When I looked further into this I saw that the wifi was turned off.  The problem is that the button in the Windows Mobility Center to turn the wifi on is greyed out and so I'm unable to turn it back on.

HP EliteBook 8560p Networking :: Cannot Turn On WiFi - Button Is Orange

Jun 1, 2012

I have a problem with my wifi. The button is always appearing orange, and nothing happens when I press it: no errors, no messages, no reaction at all. Therefore I cannot use wifi connection.
 
The laptop is kinda new: I am using it for only 2 months.
 
1. Product Name and Number
HP EliteBook 8560p–Ě–† LQ589AW

 2. Operating System installed (if applicable) 
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
 
 3. Error message (if any) 
No error messages

4. Any changes made to your system before the issue occurred

My windows crashed and I recovered it from the archive created a couple days prior to that. Archive included all hard drives data, so system was restored exactly as it was prior to the crash. I am still not sure if this caused the problem (or if the problem appeared after that): it happened a month ago, and I didn't have WiFi available back then, and only tried to turn it on a couple days ago.
 
Additional details:
In device manager wireless card is showing up as working normally. In adapter management wireless connection is turned on but says "no connection available". If I run the diagnostics, it asks me to turn on WIFI with a button on my laptop, which I cannot do. In mobility center it says "wireless connection is turned off". Turn on button is gray, and impossible to click on.
 
Things I already tried:
Reinstalled all HP drivers from the original CD;Removed WiFi card in windows device manager (deleted the device), restarted windows, installed new drivers for it, restarted again;Checked mobility center as was suggested in one of the threads found on this forum;Made a hard reset for HP laptop (removed battery, pressed on/off button for full minute).

Sony :: Setting Special Button Function? (Vaio Button)

Mar 20, 2010

I have an S series and when I press the silver VAIO button it mutes the sound.

I haven't found where to change the function of this button.

I've only removed the following Sony apps:

media gallery
pmb 5 and pmb plugins (click2disk/image optimizer/movie story)
vaio content metadata intelligent analyzing manager
vaio transfer support

Unfortunately I can't remember the default function of this button. Perhaps it was the media gallery? I'd like to change it anyhow.

Acer :: TM240 Bypass Wireless Button

Oct 7, 2008

Is it at all possible to override or bypass the manual wifi button on the top of an Acer Travelmate 240 laptop?

I have an MSI 6833 mini pci wireless card fitted into my laptop which is recognised by windows and showing as working OK.

The problem is that I can't turn the antenna on for the card.

It appears that the wireless button across the top of the keyboard does not recognise the card.

The wifi button flashes on briefly at boot up, but then remains permanently off.

I have looked everywhere for a solution to this but had no joy...including Acer support who were totally useless.

I am running Vista SP1, everything else works great with no problems.

Using a pcmcia wireless card, I can connect without any problems, but it would be easier to use an internal card.

Acer :: Aspire 5740G- Mute Button

Mar 16, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5740G running Win 7. I am really rather pleased with after my HP Pavilion.

I do have one gripe (OK, more than one, but this is the one that niggles most often).

Is there a way to assign Mute to the P button?

Yes, I know I can click on the speaker icon in the tray or press Fn+F8, but there really needs to be a one-button solution for when the phone rings or someone walks in unexpectedly.

Acer :: 8935g Install Xp And Boot From Arcade Button

Mar 7, 2010

I've installed a second hd in my 8935g for an xp install, and got a couple of q's before I get stuck in.

1. is there way to install windows XP as a "genuine" acer oem install "like the "genuine win 7 install procedure"?

2. And is there info on ways to recreate the "acer arcade" button usage to boot win 7 and a full xp from the new disc depending on wether I press power button or media button.?

I've done some searching and found some good info, especially re ACHI slipstreaming, but haven't found anyone using the arcade button for an alternative boot method (other than to force different video card in win 7)
