Sony :: Wireless Device Switch- Windows 64 Bit

Jul 27, 2009

I've installed Windows 7 64 bit on my Vaio VGN-FZ340E.

As this notebook comes with Vista Home Premium 32 bit, I had to find the drivers for 64 bit. So far so good, since the Vista 64 bit drivers work fine. (PS: It took some time to get all the drivers). Everything is working except for two things: the S1 button and the Wireless Device Switch.

I want to disable the bluetooth, because I don't use it all the time and it takes a lot of battery when enabled. I used to disable it using this little application from Sony called Wireless Device Switch.

The problem is that this application does not have the bluetooth option anymore.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: How To Switch Manually From Intel To AMD Radeon Graphics Card

Mar 18, 2013

So I recently bought a laptop (Dell Inspiron 5520) with AMD Radeon 7670m HD graphics cards. However, the laptop came with another graphics cards too which is I suppose called an integrated graphics card. It's name is Intel HD 4000. So basically I was on a site which told me whether my computer could run a specific game or not. I passed everything like processor speed etc. but the graphics card. It said I use Intel 4000. I checked from some other applications and those also told me that I was using Intel 4000. I want to know whether I use both graphics cards or just Intel 4000 and if that is the case how I can switch manually from Intel to AMD Radeon graphics card.

Dell :: E6400/5100AGN Wireless Switch

Apr 29, 2009

Once I turn off the wireless switch, I can't seem to turn wireless capability back on without rebooting the machine. The wifi LED remains unlighted and 'diagnose and repair' attempts do not work (telling me to turn wireless capability on by flicking the switch, which is already in the ON position).

Has anyone else faced this issue?

Dell Latitude E6400
Windows Server 2008 x64 (fully updated)
Intel 5100 AGN (driver A02, latest as of today)
Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth (driver A13 (, latest as of today)

HP Pavilion G6 Display :: 1350SD Dedicated GPU (7450M) Only Runs On Intel HD Graphics 3000 (Won't Switch)

Nov 5, 2014

I own this laptop for 2 years and still never had my dedicated videocard working. It didn't even work when I bought it off the store o.O so basically i got quite sick of it and tried to get it all fixed up, so I went through everything I could think of, just everything that "Might" fix the problem.
I tried all of this in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. I've set the videocard options in the bios to both fixed and dynamic. Neither works.  All of the drivers have been installed, including the latest AMD Apu driver. (I tried the official one from and the one from the HP support centre) The graphics settings for both my Intel HD Graphics and my AMD Radeon HD gpu are set to maximum performance. Disabling the HD Graphics 3000 driver so it could only run on the AMD gpu didn't work either. (Actually, everything stopped working in an instance;p) Installing an older driver didn't work either. AC/DC has been plugged in the whole time (This should have effect when settings in bios are set on "Fixed". This was not the case)
I've tried a few more things but it's getting a little bit too long to read;p

Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 :: Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch

Jul 2, 2014

I have this problem of wireless in my 15R 5537. I upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1 recently only to know that wireless driver was incompatible. I then visited the Dell support site and downloaded the wireless driver for the model i'm using and the OS installed. But when I tried to install it I got "Activate Bluetooth using wireless switch" error message.

I didn't know what wireless switch was since (fn+f2) was not working either. I came to know that there is wireless option in bios menu from various posts. But there was none in my laptop under "Advance" option in bios menu. I run bios version A08.

I tried to reinstall old windows 8(with a different CD this time) but wireless didn't work in this one either...

Dell :: Vostro 1400 Wireless Switch Not Working Hardware Or Software?

Mar 12, 2009

I opened my Vostro 1400 some time ago to clean it out, and put it back together again carefully. I also reformatted it recently.

Ever since, the wireless switch at the front doesn't seem to do anything when I press it all the way to the right. Before, it would show all wireless APs in the area, and their signal strengths, on the screen.

Sony :: Wireless Switch Broken (does Not Light Up)

Mar 12, 2009

I have an SR290 and recently I had a problem with the wireless. The wireless switch at the bottom left corner does not seem to work; when I move it to the ON position, the LED does not light up green to say that it is working. In the Device Manager, the wireless device does show up, and I can disable/enable it, and it indicates that the wireless card is still functioning. Under network connections, the network connection does show up, but it cannot detect any wireless networks. My other devices can pick up the wireless signals.

Sony :: TZ31, Wireless Device Switch Utility And WLAN Woes

Mar 14, 2009

Laptop: Sony Vaio TZ31VN
Integrated Globetrotter HSDPA Wireless WAN, Bluetooth and Intel 4965AGN Wireless LAN, Windows XP SP3 (Official Sony XP Downgrade Build)

This one really has me stumped - I'd appreciate any suggestions!

In summary, I have a problem with my Sony VAIO TZ31 wherein I'm unable to use my WiFi. The Wireless Device Switcher utility (C:Program FilesSonyWireless Switch Setting UtilitySwitcher.exe version 4.0) no longer 'sees' my integrated WLAN card to give me the option of turning it on or off, however it does see both the Bluetooth and WWAN cards. The hardware switch on the front of the laptop is in the 'ON' position, and the Bluetooth and WWAN lights are illuminated, however the WLAN light isn't, and I can find no way of enabling it. The Bluetooth and WWAN are still working.

My problem determination so far:

The normal Windows Wireless Network Connection dialogue tells me immediately (i.e. doesn't seem to scan at all) that it can't find any networks and that I should check that my wireless is turned on. I have another several devices in the house that are seeing the network just fine, as does my iPhone right next to this laptop.

Running an `IPCONFIG ALL` from the command line suggests that it is physically still there:

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-1D-E0-C3-xx-xx

Checking in Windows Device Manager the `Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN' entry appears with no question marks or exclamation marks telling me there's a problem or that the device is disabled. Opening up the properties dialogue for this, the drop down box on the Advanced tab says 'Wireless On'. All other properties are on the default values....

Acer :: Aspire 5590 - Wireless Stops Working And The Light Is Off And It Won't Go On When I Move The Switch

May 3, 2009

Okay so my first question is this: Right now my wireless light is on showing that it's wireless, but if I close my laptop, or if it goes to sleep, and then I go back onto my laptop the wireless stops working and the light is off and it won't go on when I move the switch. I have a Aspire 5590

My second question is: I've hooked up a second monitor to my laptop I checked the settings and it works like this, if I move my mouse to the right and keep going, my mouse appears on the second screen. How can I make it so that the start menu and everything goes from the first to the second screen that way I can close my laptop, cause if I close my laptop screen it disables the second screen also/

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T420s Wireless Radio Button Doesn't Switch On / Broken

Dec 18, 2014

I have a Lenovo t420s with dualboot win7 and Ubuntu. I never had any problems until now and could switch on/off my wireless and bluetooth connections via the Hardware Switch (right bottom left of the notebook) or via FN + F5.

However, without any specific reason the wireless and bluetooth was switched off and the the system tells me that I have to switch on WIFI via the Wireless Radio Switch. However, although I can move it, it doesn't make any difference for the Switch.
I tried to reset the BIOS to Default and changed the network settings, and also rebooted several times. I won't work with any of the two systems.

Dell :: Add Intel 5300 Wireless To Latitude E6500

Jun 27, 2009

I just picked up a Latitude E6500 from the outlet, and it only comes with B wireless. People on the forum have mentioned that the E6500 has 3 Mini PCIe slots. One is full length and has 3 antenna connections, one is half length with 2, and one is half length with 1 (for Bluetooth).

I'm planning on upgrading with an Intel 5300 wifi card, it's amazing how cheap they are on eBay. The 5300 comes in two configurations, full and half, but it's a 3x3 antenna, so it'll have to go in my full length slot.

However, most of the listings seem to be for half, and they cost the same. I figure I might as well get the cheaper half length card that also saves .5 ounces of weight if it'll fit in the slot, and the antenna wires will reach. Does anyone know if this would work, or do I need to find one of the full length cards?

Dell :: Upgrading Latitude E6400 Wireless To Intel 5300agn

Apr 1, 2009

i want to upgrade my wireless adapter to either the intel 5100 or 5300 cards. i understand that the 5300 has three antenna connections, whereas the the 5100 has two antenna connections.

currently i have the dell 1397 i believe. i know that the card has to be half-height mini, there are a bunch available on ebay.

from this thread:
E4200 + intel WIFI 5300 - can someone have a look at theirs ?

it seems this guy was succesful in upgrading the card on his e4200, the third antenna connection was available on the board itself.

anyone have success upgrading their wifi adapter to the 5300? just would like to know that it's easily done before ordering it, otherwise i guess the intel 5100 will suffice.
