i have a generic battery being used in a G60-249WM laptop and any time the laptop is left and placed somewhere else while on, such as a table or desk, the battery i believe may be losing contact, as the computer just shuts off. what repair can i do, so that my 12 cell battery will work ? oddly, the genuine 6 cell fits and doesn't cause a poweroff when moved.
there is slight wiggleability with the generic 12 cell. for small, but still.
I just last week bought an Hp G60-230US at Office Depot. Had them install Microsoft Office and clean up my computer. When I got home and tried to make a recovery disc, I keep getting a message that says "this computer does not have a drive capable of creating cd's or dvd's. Contact HP" I did this, and they tried to tell me it was the type of dvd I was trying to use (Maxell). I know Hp's can be touchy, but I don't think the type of disc would give me that type of error. Hp said they could send me a copy of the recovery discs. But my concern is with that message. Am I doing something wrong, or is my computer messed up? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I plan on calling Hp tonight, and possibly calling Office Depot to see if they did something bad to my computer when they "cleaned it up".
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...
Recently I got a wireless router HUAWEI EchoLife HG520s Home Gateway installed by my Internet provider. My HP dv8320us laptop has an Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection, but I can't get connected to my wireless network . The blue light of the wireless connection is on (blue), but I can't view other wireless networks to connect .
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.
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 Product Specifications: LINK
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?
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?
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..
My Dell 1505 wireless N card is a constant headache, If I hide my ssid the card detects and connects to my router but I can never access the internet. It may work sometimes but most of the time my SSID has to be on.
I have tested this with two different routers and the results were the same, vista shows local access only . I have tried using drivers from laptopvideo2go and reimaging the computer, I am now fed up and want to get a new wifi car
I'm getting tired of the usb wireless adapter so I want to buy a PCI wireless card but the problem is, he don't have the cd installation, since it comes from a old laptop. How do I install the PCI card without the cd installation?
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.
I finally installed a new wireless card, so I don't have to use my usb wireless adapter. its working but there is something that I don't really like.... I only get 1 or 2 bars of signal (usb wireless: full signal) Average speed of wireless card 11Mbps (usb wireless: 54Mbps)
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 v220.127.116.11 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v18.104.22.168
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.
Anyone try out the Wireless N Atheros card from Gigabyte? I think it's pretty new. Having a hard time finding anything on it. If so, any comments? I just got a GN-WI01GT today for my M1710 and am already feeling like an upgrade.
Iv got the studio 17 and im considering getting a wireless 'N' capable router to stream HD content wirelessly to my laptop via my NAS. The only problem is id need a 'N' capable card in my laptop aswell.
Just looking at the Studio 17 laptops and I'm just wondering what the differences are between the wireless cards are?
The three I can select are: Dell Wireless 1510 Half Mini Card (802.11n) add £0.00 Intel WiFi Link 5300 Half Mini Card (802.11 a/g/n) (Centrino) [add £20.00] Intel WiFi Link 5100 (802.11 a/b/g/n 1X2) 1/2 MiniCard [Included in Price]
