My wireless card stopped working and I get the message that the radio is disabled. F2 is supposed to turn it on,but no longer does so. Tried reinstalling the wireless card driver, but that didn't work. I am told that I probably have a software conflict. How to find and correct the conflict?
Before the end of 2013 I bought an Ideapad U530 Touch for school and it's been working fine up until a few days ago when the backlight for the left most CTRL key stopped working and shut off completely. Every other key on the board is fine, except for this one. Is there any easy to fix to this problem, or do I need to send the entire computer back?
My wife had a D430 die on her last month. It was still under the next business day on site warranty. But Dell insisted we ship it back to them for repairs.
We opened the support case on April 13th. They sent us a box overnight, we shipped the laptop back to them. They emailed on April 26th (13 days later on a next business day warranty) that the machine is beyond repair and they will replace it under complete care.
So I receive a package from Dell on April 27th, thinking it was the replacement. But no, it was the dead hard drive fro her old machine. for some reason they shipped it back to us.
Still no news from them on when we can expect to receive a replacement system. Also the online support status page now can't find our support case either by service tag, or case #. and the warranty page shows the service tag does not have any valid warranty associated with it anymore. (it was under warranty until September of this year).
I have a new Dell Inspiron 13 7000 series laptop. I'm not sure if this is something I accidentally turned on, but I cannot figure out how to turn it off: Whenever I turn on the computer, the default voice speaks the time and date. It also speaks the time on the hour when the computer is on. I cannot figure out how to turn off the voice. I checked the Ease of Access settings and have verified that the Narrator is OFF. How to turn off the voice that reads the time?
I have a x201 cto using 64bits Win 7. The wireless adapter is intel advanced-N 6200. However, I found my wireless always turn off suddenly and I can not turn it on anymore (even using Fn+F5) until reboot.
Battery and screen questions,' 1 when not using the laptop should I leave it plugged in? 2 when playing music w the windows media player that came installed on the laptop how do I turn off the screen. I have set the screen to turn off ib 3 min but it does not turn off
It really annoys me that my new laptop, (Just a week old) when turned on takes a very long time before it starts. After the HP logo, it will show a blank page where my cursor can be moved, then it will stay a very a long time so I end up shutting it down then turning on again and again until it finally starts up. This really takes a lot of my time specially I use my laptop for work.
My uncle bought a Aspire E1-572-6870 series notebook six months before for me from USA. After using 10 to 15 days I noticed the internal speaker is not working. But the headphone and/or microphone is working very fine. I went to a local laptop repairing shop for diagnosis. Unfortunately they were unable to find out the actual problem. They suggest me to change the speaker chip may result solve the problem. Before changing the chip I want to diagnose once more for accuracy about the problem. Any online check can be possible?
i ve got thinkpad t440s model 20AQ004VRT so it got europe only geforce GT 730M video card. I've noticed that if i use it all day long( about 4-5 hours, maybe got something to do with sleep mode) fan stops spinning and notebook gets really hot under high loads. Fan starts working only after reboot. I've tried to use tpfancontrol but smart mode stopped detecting cpu tempreture and even somehow crushed battery life detection, so ive had to remove it.
Other than that, I've got gorilla glass bit extruded from the left side. I can push it but it keeps coming back to that position.And ive had fingerprint reader error - system could not find it after some time of use, but that problem resolved itself somehow, maybe after ive removed northon protection system...
I have a HP Pavilion g6-2210sa, product number is C6S45EA#ABU Volume occasionally works fine, but mostly does not. It sometimes works when I turn laptop on and then after a few minutes it doesn't work. If I restart, it sometimes starts working again but mostly does not. I have followed HP instructions for audio problems on this website however I cannot seem to fix this.
I have a timeline 4810T which has worked lovely since September, but now I have a weird problem with it: The keyboard won't work until the operating system is loaded. I can't access the bios (press the F2 key but nothing happens), neither select my OS on the Grub menu as the arrow keys doesn't work, all I can do is wait for the 10 seconds timer, then Ubuntu launches, then I can login without problems and all the keys work perfectly.
To give more details, maybe some keys do actually work before the os boot, because when I'm on the grub menu, some keys manage to stop the timer, but unfortunately I can't change the OS or accept the selection, then I have to reboot and wait for the timer to go back to 0 for itself and ubuntu loads.
I'm running the newest BIOS, updated some days ago but didn't had the problem since today.
I have a DV7-1023 that is less than a month old. I finally got around to burning some dvd movies from files I copied to the local hard drive. The total process time to burn a movie from start to finish takes 23 minutes at 8x speed.
On my old laptop the process time from start to finish took about 15 minutes at 6x speed.
The machine has the vista 64bit version that came with laptop. I am using Nero version 7.
Is there anything I can do to speed up my burn time?
There are no other apps running, and I tried burning right after rebooting.
If anyone experiencing long load times when booting up Windows 7? It takes considerably longer for me to boot Win7 than SL...
When Win7 boots, whether it be a cold boot or reboot, ill find myself hanging at a blank/black screen with nothing other than a blinking underscore in the top left corner for what seems like a minute, then it'll go to the normal "Starting Windows..." screen from there. Is a format/reinstall in order?
Just to clarify the subject, the right click that takes a long time to show up is when it's done on the desktop or when you right-click in a windows explorer folder, blank area witnothing selected (like to create a new folder or something). When you right-click, it shows the blue circular thing to sow it's tinking about it, it's loading and takes about 8 seconds to pop up after the click. Right-clicking on selected files, folders or in any other software, pops up instantly without issue.

I got the new aluminum macbook 2.4ghz and it is taking a long time to go to sleep. I cant figure out what it is. I close my lid and the apple logo takes about 4 seconds until is shuts off and another 30 seconds until the light starts to fade in and out. I've shut the lid of another macbook at an apple shop and they go to sleep instantly.
I have an Acer Extena 5630z that came with 4 GB memory (2 times 2 GB modules) from the factory. However, the BIOS reports only 3 GB in any OS I try be it 64 or 32 bit. Why is this? The BIOS is version 1.19 and there are newer ones. Should I consider an update? Is this a memory remappin issue
This processor and chipset should support 36 bit address space in a 32 bit OS even.
I just got a new Ideapad U530 touchscreen laptop yesterday. After a few minutes the keyboard stops working. I uninstalled a few of the Lenovo multimedia programs I don't need. Is there a bios update or a driver I should update after purchase?
