HP/Compaq :: Wireless Not Turning On After New Card

Oct 23, 2009

i have a DV2000 (DV2020CA) and i noticed the wireless was not so good (ie weakest signal strengths), a quick google and i found out the issue was the card... so i pulled one out of my ASUS F3SV (WM3945ABG) and i put it in THANKFULLY, there was no 104 error, but i cant turn the wireless on anymore. the actual physical switch that turns on the wireless doesn't turn blue it just stays orange...

HP/Compaq :: HP V6305nr Wireless Card Failure

Nov 24, 2009

way to test the wireless card in the laptop, seems to be dead. The laptop is almost 3 years old and is no longer under warranty.

This model of laptop (in general) had a lot of issues due to the faulty Geforce go 6150 GPU, and I guess that the excessive heat generated by it has taken it's toll.

HP/Compaq :: Wireless Card And Bluetooth Upgrade

Jul 10, 2009

I have a question concerning self-upgrading of the wireless card and bluetooth.

Long story short, I have a Lenovo T61 that has bluetooth and the Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card. However, both the inverter and graphics card (nVidia quadro 140M) have failed. I have determined it is best to buy a new laptop.

I am planning to either buy a HP Pavilion dv6t or dv4t. However, I would like to know if it is possible to forgo getting bluetooth and the wireless-n card when I order this laptop and install these components myself as I already have them from my Lenovo T61. My Lenovo T61 is just going to collect dust, and I am willing to take it apart for the individual parts.

Is it worth the work? I believe I will not have problems taking apart the HP Pavilion and the Lenovo T61 as I am aware of the websites that show you how to take apart these models. But will the HP Pavilion motherboard support the wireless-n card and bluetooth if I originally did not order such components? Will the warranty be affected?

Additional information: I shall be buying the HP Pavilion from Costco.

HP/Compaq :: My Wireless Card Is Half-dead

Jan 28, 2010

My WLAN 802.11g connection died yesterday when I was at the university and even after uninstalling and updating the drivers it's not waking up.

I have a D-Link DWA-140 USB adapter which work quite well still with 802.11n (though there are some trouble to get a connection when first starting up the laptop) but the "g" part of the wireless card seems completely dead.

I have looked at the bottom of the laptop and got a clue where the WLAN card could be because of the symbols, but I need to know what card I should get to replace the faulty one? Because I have to replace it right?

My Hp laptop is:
HP Pavilion dv5-1264eo Entertainment Notebook PC (NG169EA)
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN

HP/Compaq :: Is The Intel Wireless 5100 (AGN?) Card Removable Or

Nov 10, 2009

The DV5T seemed to be working pretty well for me and no real wireless issues.

What has happened is that since I upgraded to Windows 7 and the new drivers, I get some hitching, rubberbanding in games, slow speeds at times, etc.

Now I know Windows 7 is pretty rock solid and the new drivers came from the HP site.

But when I started googling, seems TONS of people have issues with the 5100 card and maybe I was just lucky before.

At first I noticed my card speed goes from ~50 MBPS to max of 130 MBPS. After reading, it seems even though my router supports 40ghz dual channel yadda yadda, the card only goes to 2.4 so it can't really run at 40ghz is my understanding and that 130 MBPS is pretty much the cap.

That said, it was that way before the Win 7 upgrade so that shouldn't change anything.

One thing I noticed is that in my device driver before the upgrade, it was a normal 5100 but now with the drivers, I see a 5100 AGN.

I can't find how the AGN and non-AGN versions differ?

Could it be I have AGN drivers for a non-AGN card?

Lastly, is this wireless card removable and upgradable or can I use the slot (empty) that I have for another card and disable the wireless 5100 through BIOS?

HP/Compaq :: Wireless Card That Will Work With My Laptop Beside Atheros

Jan 23, 2009

I have been having problem with Atheros ar5009 on dv5 for the last two weeks. I did clean install and it didnt help. I tried almost everything on the web to solve the problem but no luck. I just called Hp tech support today but they want me to do the system recovery but I couldnt do it because I did the clean install.

I am thinking of replacing it with different wireless card. I don't know what is compatible with my system. I have amd turion x2 2.1 ghz. the wireless uses pci-e slot. can anyone recommend me a wireless card that will work with my laptop beside atheros?

Model is dv5-1113us

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 C551nrReplacing Wireless Mini-pcie Card With SSD

May 25, 2009

I'm thinking about picking up a usb wireless n adapter; which means I won't be needing the internal wireless nic. Since that's a mini PCIe slot, I was wondering if anyone has tried replacing that with one of the many SSDs floating around the web...

2 main questions I have about those:

If they're mini-pciE, why are there sata versions and pata versions out there? There's no sata or pata connector on these cards it seems, the pci-e connector is all there is. Do they somehow use the sata/pata controller on the motherboard via the pci-e bus?

2nd question; would there be any way to boot from one of these? The bios has a bunch of options for booting up, network, usb, usb floppy, etc... but none for mini pci-e or anything like that...

Laptop is a presario C500, more precisely c551nr, broadcom 802.11b/g nic, 80gb toshiba 5400rpm slow ..... hard drive, and a celery 440 running the show..

HP/Compaq :: Dv7: Mute Button Turning On And Off By Itself

Oct 9, 2009

my mute button at the top of my computer functions, but does not change color when i mute or unmute something i'm watching or listening to. it does however make a popping noise and change color at what seems like random, just when clicking through websites. it will change color and making this popping noise but it won't actually mute. the color changing is not really an issue for me it's just the random "pop" sound i get that can get very annoying and have no idea how to get it running again properly. it's been like this for several weeks and can't trace it back to anything i've done around that time.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t- TV Tuner Turning

Jan 28, 2009

About a week ago I got my dv5t with the hybrid tv tuner option. Its been one problem after another. HP had me do a system recovery today (ugh) because the quick play tv software was not responding. This was after trying other things such as updating drivers and flashing the bios. I spent three hours on the phone with them today alone, and three more on three other days.

Now I am trying to set up the TV in Media Center, and during the set up TV process wizard, it says that my IR control cable is not detected. So it will not let me proceed. This IR cable and hardware is used (i think) to control the changing of the set top box channels. I am also reading about some sensor or other. I have searched around this forum and elsewhere, but I don't understand what I'm reading. I want to find out if I should have received this IR cable or whatever as part of the package from HP. I got a remote control, but that is it. When I initially questioned HP about the tuner card, they assured me I could watch AND record television if I had satellite and purchased this tuner card, but I can't set up record because I can't get past this step in Media Center wizard. No one at HP seems to know a blessed thing about this, and are obviously as clueless as I am. They are telling me I can't record, and don't know what an IR cable even is.

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv5-1235dx Webcam Light Not Turning On

Apr 3, 2009

Bought this laptop brand new from Bestbuy 2 weeks ago, brought it home, tested everything and all was fine, first time I tested the webcam using the HP Mediasmart webcam software all was well, this laptop has 2 lights in the webcam location, to the left of the circular webcam has 4 small dots of light and the webcam itself, the webcam light came on the first time I tested it briefly. We had to do a full recovery [reformat] after a few days and now after the recovery was done, next time I tried the webcam, the webcam works fine, I can see anything but only the webcam light now does not come on, tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software and then updating the driver from hp's site but the light still does not come on, only the 4 small dot lights to the left stays on but these lights stay on whether the webcam is on or not,

HP/Compaq :: Turning Off The Touch-strip On The 8510

Aug 25, 2009

if there was a way to turn off the touch-strip at the top of the 8510 - or, better yet, an individual "button". The problem is, when I move my laptop around, I sometimes brush one of the touch-sensitive buttons.

At times I've been wondering why my wireless wasn't working and, after trying various things, finally realised I'd accidentally hit the little blue antenna button on the touch-strip...

If I can turn the entire thing off, that would be great.. is there a service or something that monitors it which I can turn off?

Dell :: New Wireless Card

Aug 13, 2007

I have an xps gen2 that currently has an Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG wireless card inside. I've got no major complaints with it, it has always worked well and gets pretty good range but I'm looking to boost the range a bit. I see that the atheros cards get good reviews on the forums. My question is, would getting one of these cards boost my range? Many times the intel card will detect a network with a weak signal, but will not be able to actually connect to it. Can any of you suggest a good wireless card that would be compatible with my pc? Which atheros card should I buy? I just want to make sure its compatible. I recently went out of town and was trying to pick up a signal with the laptop, and I found over 10 networks but the card had trouble connecting with any of them. (most were showing 2 bars for signal strength)For the record I realize distance and obstructions limit the range of any card, but mine seems to lack the power to punch through, but works just fine at home and holds a 100% signal. I am trying to stay with the mini pci express cards that I can put inside the laptop instead of pcmcia cards.

Dell :: Wireless Card

Dec 26, 2008

Im about to order a Studio 15, there are 2 options on wireless Cards.

-- Intel WiFi Link 5100 802.11agn Half Mini-Card

-- Dell Wireless 1510 802.11 n half mini-card

The Intel card costs 10 bucks more and im likely going to get it just because of the low cost to upgrade, but just curious if theres a huge difference between the two.

HP/Compaq :: DV5-1155ee- Wireless Led Suddenly Orange Although Wireless Is Enabled

Jul 15, 2009

Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 (64-Bit) (problem is also there with Windows 7)

I sometimes try to connect to a network, then the wireless led suddenly orange although Wireless is Enabled. My friend who has an XP system can connect to that network in the cafe just fine so does everybody else, but on my system, it says connecting, then the icon turns orange as if there was no wirelesss card installed.

I am using the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN v12.2.0.11 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v3.50.2.1

Now I have an orange icon for wireless, although wireless is enabled in both device manager and through the touch key.

the icon will turn blue if I restart and wireless access will be restored, but I will lose it again if I try to connect to a wireless network.

Dell :: Wireless Internet Card?

Mar 29, 2010

sorry in advance for what I'm sure is a rookie question...
My father has one of the Dell mini laptops.

He is in the hospital at the moment, and I'm wondering what kind of card/fob etc., if anything, is available to allow him to have wireless access (like 3G) to internet?

The hospital doesn't have any wireless available, nor do there appear to be any 'hotspots' accessable from the hospital, so looking for what I'd need to access a local internet service etc?
