HP Dv6 Networking :: Weak WiFi Internet Signal While On Battery

Oct 26, 2012

I bought a DV6 in 2011. I got a weird issue a few days ago. I usually browsed on Internet normally on my laptop and everything was fine. But one day, I unplugged the AC adapter from my laptop and I started to experience a very weak wifi internet connection. After troubleshooting, the problem comes from my laptop. Randomly, I just plugged the AC adapter from laptop and everything was fine, I mean worked normally . But I unplugged the AC adapter the problem came back. So I wanted to know if there is a relation between the wifi connection strenght and the AC adapter/battery.

Acer Aspire V3-551G :: Fan Extremely Loud - Overheating When Run Games Or Ubuntu

Jan 19, 2015

I have the Acer Aspire V3-551G (specifically the V3-551G-8454 model) and since I got it the laptop has had some overheating issues when I run games or Ubuntu. My solution to that was just to stop running games and Ubuntu, and besides that it's worked pretty well besides Explorer deciding to crash randomly (it doesn't happen too often though).
However, I've had the laptop for a while now and and not too long ago I noticed the fan would rarely become extremely loud. As the weeks went by, the sound became more frequent, especially if I moved the laptop even just a little while it was on, so I stopped moving the laptop. But now, even with the laptop sitting still on a table, there is about a 40%-50% chance that it will have an extremely loud fan when I start it.
What's weird is that sometimes I noticed the fan is too quiet too. When it does this I assume that the fan is actually off which shouldn't be happening because the laptop gets super hot. Sometimes after a while of silence the loud noise come up too, which is nice because now the fan is on, but is also not good because of the volume of the noise.
I'm pretty sure problem is coming from the GPU (or whatever the big fan on the left underside of the laptop is). I also suspect the fan had actually been the culprit of the overheating (which consequently caused Explorer to crash sometimes).

HP/Compaq :: Weak Wifi On Envy 15

May 9, 2010

I recently got my HP Envy 15 in the mail a few days ago and I have to say Im very happy with it. However, I have run into some setbacks.

The most major one is the wireless. Out of the box it was only getting 180 mbps of wireless N speed, which I knew was way to slow. After digging around the device manager I found that the 2.4 ghz frequency was set to 20 mhz and not auto. After setting it to auto I got 300 mbps, much better.

But heres the big issue. While it does get 300 mbps of speed while only a few yards away from the router, once I leave my room and walk away about 40 or less feet to the dinning room, the speed takes a HUGE nose dive, getting to around 20 to 12 mpbs of wireless internet speed. However, the signal quality is good or fair, meaning 3 out of 5 green bars. When I go to the living room, about 60 feet from the router, it goes down to 1.0 mbps wireless speed, with 2 out of five bars signal quality. Sometimes however, I cant get any speed and it disconnects...................

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: New Laptop Drops Wifi Signal Every Night?

Apr 18, 2013

I just bought a new laptop and every night I lose the wifi connection. I know it's not my router because I am usually running one of two X-boxes in the house and that connect never drops. The laptop works great for a couple of hours and then it drops off. I have tried restarting, shutting down and nothing works. I do all my homework online and cannot afford it dropping in the middle of a test or something. The OS is that wonderful Windows 8 (in my sarcastic voice).

HP Pavilion G7 Recovery :: Notebook Suddenly Cannot Recognize WiFi Signal

Oct 11, 2014

My Pavilion is about two years old and the motherboard was replaced by HP while under warranty. 
For the second time in about nine months the notebook suddenly cannot recognize my router's WiFi signal. This time if I do a system recovery I will have to reinstall 50 apps! I am trying to avoid this if possible. I understand that changing the bios settings, how this step will affect (delete/save) files. Upgraded from WIN7 to 8 to 8.1.

HP Presario C700 Networking :: Signal Strength Is Excellent But Unable To Identify WiFi Network

Jun 22, 2014

I have a compaq presario, product name "Presario C700" and p/n "FE934UA#ABA." The operating system is Windows Vista. I have internet from Comcast and the router I am using is Netgear. I recently moved to a new place and am having trouble connecting to the Wifi at home. I've had this laptop for several years now and have been able to connect to some wifi in the past, but there have been times when I haven't been able to connect to wifi in some public places. I am able to connect to the wifi on my phone and another laptop but not this one. I have tried resetting the router and numerous other steps but nothing seems to resolve the problem. Every time I try to connect, it says that the signal strength is excellent, but it is unable to identify the network and says that "the router is unavailable." I have already called my router company but they were not able to resolve the problem. The only way I can connect to the internet is using an ethernet cord.

Sony :: Vaio SZ 4 Series Fan Replacement And Wifi + Processor Upgrade (Win7 + Ubuntu Feedback)

Nov 25, 2009

I had replaced mobo on my dead SZ 4 series (don't ask why) and couldn't stop there since I was in the move thus consequently contemplated about possible upgrades. For now I settled for fan, WLAN card and CPU upgrade. If it works well, I might install SSD also.

1.Fan Modification

As you all proud SZ owners know, fan is very noisy on this machines so it made me think if there is any possible modification to reduce the noise. Since the BIOS is controlling it there is not much to do on the RPM part (in win at least, but more on that later) I settled for a fan and fan casing swap from SZ 4 to SZ 7 series.

In the photos you can see that fans, fan casings and heat-sinks are of different design. Besides design differences, voltage and the amperage are the same, 5V-300mA.

Only way was to install the fan and the casing of the SZ 7 heat-sink to my old one as one of the heat-sinks bolt bushings is off for a few millimeters.

There has to be some care exercised when prying off the fan casing, some heating was required from the aluminium side on three pins were casing is attached.

Not to be simple, the difference is also in the inlet hole. One on the SZ 7 heat-sink is bigger and off centre compared to SZ 4s. Had to do some filing there, to match it to the size of the new fan. Fan of SZ7 is not bigger, it is due to different design of the fan eye and its volutes...................

Dell :: Weak Battery

Jan 20, 2010

My cousin own a Dell Inspiron laptop and he gonna replace the laptop battery very soon, because its very weak.

He can't connect to his wireless network. Wondering is there any connection between a 'weak' battery and the laptop's ability to find the wireless connection.

There has not been any issue connecting to the network before the battery issue appeared. What to do before the new battery arrives?

HP/Compaq :: Dv3t Sound Is Pretty Weak

Sep 28, 2009

Friend got a couple weeks old dv3t with P7350 and Intel graphics. Even though it has SRS feature, still sound totally sucks. I cant beleive how quite the speakers are. Even at full volume, you have to be pretty close to notebook in order to listen clearly, unlike my dv6700t, which fills the room with not high quality, but decent enough sound - both volume and quality wise. and it get so hot while playing a little game on it, that the side grill almost gave me burn today. What do you guys with dv3t feel about sound and heat issues? Do you find it weak too, or my friend's dv3t has something wrong in it?

Acer :: 1410 & Intel 5100 Wireless Weak Connection

Sep 25, 2009

I'm really trying to like my new Acer 1410. Everything was working great until I tried to connect thru the wifi. Turned out the connection was really weak. This is in my house where all my other laptops have had no problem connecting.

So I try for a couple of hours trying every setting possible on my router and on my laptop settings. Finally, I open up the bottom of my laptop and find out the black wire that goes to the Intel Wireless card isn't even connected! In fact the metal connector itself is missing entirely

So me not knowing much about electronics, I cut off a 2 inch wire (with connector) from my old laptop's wireless card and taped it to the new laptop's open black wire. Plug it in and now the signal is better, but it still sucks. Any advice anyone? I really would rather fix it myself if I can. Would it work better if I solder the two wires together? Or is the Intel 5100 a POS and nothing is going to help it?

Dell :: New Studio XPS 16 Wifi Issues

Mar 23, 2010

Well after my 1710 died, I requested the Studio XPS16 and finally got it. The thing is, its not working as planned.

I am not a noob to this, but I am stuck. I have (according to the Order Page) the Dell 1520 WLAN card. I downloaded the drivers and it still won't work. The WiFi light is on, but the laptop still thinks its disabled. When I go to enable it, it says it will be enabled, but it is stuck in disabled. Do I have a dud here?

I wiped the computer, reinstalled all the drivers... but maybe I am missing something?

Dell :: Studio 15 Wifi Catcher

Nov 11, 2008

I got my s15 a few months ago. All was well except that I noticed my wifi catcher doesn't work properly. The manual says it should work like this:

Flashing white: Searching for networks
Solid white for 10 seconds and then turns off: Network found
Off (flashing white turns off after 10 blinks): No signal found

Also my catcher never even does '10 blinks' as above, it is always just 3.

When windows is running, the same button works and launches the available networks utility so the physical button works.

I've tried my catcher (always with laptop off) in numerous places including my own home (where my home wifi network is available) and coffee shops where there is a public hotspot. On numerous occassions I have gone into a coffee shop with the machine off. I've pressed the catcher and got

Flashing white: Searching for networks (well, 3 blinks)
Off (flashing white turns off after 10 (well, 3 in my case) blinks): No signal found

After this I've booted up and found / connected to a network straight away.

Last night I tried 'dell chat' with a support teccy and I got absolutely nowhere. Although they admitted that the catcher should work as I've said, they refused to accept mine wasn't working. They basically said they cannot help me.

I am looking for advice here if possible please folks. OK, so I know its not the end of the world but I hate having a feature on my laptop that does not work. I've effectively got a useless button that does nothing but flashes a pretty light 3 times when I press it.

I recently did a road trip in the US and booked my hotels as I went. The catcher would have been very useful here.

My suspicions with this are that it is either a) my laptop came with the higher
DELL WIRELESS 1510 (802.11N) card, or that its got 4gb of ram on vista 32 (home premium).

My g/f s inspiron's catcher works fine but she has the lower intel card.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I do about this? Really I think Dell should be fixing this as its one of the advertised features of the s15. I think I'd like to escalate this further but not sure who to speak to.
