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.

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).

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...................

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?

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.

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 :: Inspiron 1720 Running Extremely Hot

Sep 20, 2009

lately my Inspiron 1720 has been running crazy hot, and overheating (actually shutting down) while playing games (specifically Sacred 2).

For example right now I am only running Firefox and HWMonitor, and here is an excerpt from the HWMonitor report:

Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5750 hardware monitor

Temperature sensor 070C (157F) [0xF] (core #0)
Temperature sensor 175C (166F) [0xA] (core #1)

In fact shortly after saving that report, my computer actually shut down from heat. I have since restarted it and it is currently running at a roughly constant 52C.

The CPU gets into the 70s and overheats a lot when playing Sacred 2. However, strangely even after closing that game the temperature doesn't come down, such as what happened above .....

Dell :: M1530 Extremely High Cpu Temps 95+

Oct 13, 2008

My cpu core hits the mid 90's when gaming. i undervolted it to 1100v @ 11x and the temps only hit the high 80's/low 90's during gaming but hit the mid nineties in orthos and was still going up.

This is getting me down a bit cus the cpu ramps down during gaming and screws up the fps, and also im outside of the uk so cant get my laptop to dell (there are no dell suppliers where i am)

does anyone have any idea what might be wrong. am i reading the temps correctly? speedfan shows much lower temps (in the 70s) however cpuz, rightmark and hwmonitor all show temps consistent with eachother.

Its a t7500.

there's nothing blocking the outake at the back; i lifted the laptop up during orthos to let air out of the bottom but it didnt make any difference.

I've built a few desktops but i havent really tinkered with this laptop apart from adding more ram.

Dell :: Wireless NA Signal Can Go Through 3 Storey House

Oct 12, 2008

Before I'll order Lattitude E6400. I've some question about wireless network. I've heard that wireless N - A signal can go far than 2x , if compare with wireless G.

In E6400 series , there is an option for wireless : 5100 , 5300. The one I'll choose is 5300 wireless N (best option)

Is it possible to use wireless N for 3 storey house. I' ve plan to located ADSL modem on Ground Floor. Is it possible that a signal can run through 3rd Floor.

Are there anybody know that we can use wireless ADSL Modem in this case?
A signal - How far can it go?

I don' want to extend a wire from existing modem. Just change to a wireless modem and I can use it for one desktop on ground floor and one laptop(wireless) on 3rd floor. Is this right?

Sony :: VGN-FE890 Extremely Hot/overheating

Feb 5, 2009

I'm pretty sure this has to be a common problem but so far I haven't been able to dig up substantial information about it, although I've found scattered evidence. Just over the 1 year mark and the 1 year warranty expiration for my Vaio VGN-FE890, it started running dramatically warmer, and when running intensive programs it would get extremely hot.

Specifically, it's the right 2/3's of the laptop that gets the hottest, with it getting hotter the farthest to the right. The laptop was originally very cool during the first year, so the change was easily noticeable when it happened.

I can easily hear the CPU fan going all the time when it's on and warmed up, sometimes louder/faster than others, so I know it's working. I need to do some testing to be sure, but at the moment I'm not certain if it's the graphics chip that's generating the extreme heat, or if it's the processor, but it's certainly one of the two. It's definitely not the battery or the HD. It's always very hot ever since the change, but it definitely gets dramatically hotter when running processor and/or graphics intensive programs, especially 2D and 3D games (too hot too touch the underside of the laptop). Needless to say, I haven't overclocked or touched the graphics (NVidia GeForce Go 7400) chip in any way.

Not looking for random idle guesses about the source of the heat, I can do that myself, but if anybody is familiar with the problem or owns a similar model Vaio suffering from the same issue I'd be anxious to hear about it. I want to determine if this is a known, documented problem with this model and/or this graphics chip.

I got an application that tells me the temperatures and idle they would hover at around 60 degrees celsius. I took the computer apart and took the terrible little cushion off the heatsink and applied some thermal grease and now it idles at around 48 degrees celsius. Even after I did that, it's still running excruciatingly slow. Startup times increased drastically though.

As soon as I turn on my laptop the fan start working extremely loud with cold air coming out. I know that the fan is supposed to be this loud when laptop is close to overheating, but I don't see the point of being this loud while everything is on normal temperature  (checked with SpeedFan) and laptop doesn't feel hot at all.
