HP Elitebook 8460p - is there any other way to enable the wireless on an HP laptop? I've checked the settings, bios and also made sure the wireless card installed in the laptop works. Drivers are installed correctly. When troubleshooting, it comes up with "turn on the wireless". Nothing happens when pressing the button. It stays amber.
I have an HP ENVY dv6-7246us Notebook PC with a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 802.11b/g/n wireless adaptor. the past 2 weeks the adaptor has been turned off and I can not find a way to turn it back on.
In device manager the adaptor is shown to be working properly. The indicator light (f12) is showing white as it should and toggles into and out of airplane mode properly.I have tried to open the properties tab in network connections to no avail. I also could not find a newer driver for the adaptor.the ethernet adapter is working well. I have Windows 8 64 bit and am using AVG anti-virus.I need the wireless to be working properly or I will just have to get another computer.
How do I turn on Wifi with my Envy m6 1117TX laptop? A few days ago, a technician from a mobile wireless provider told me how to turn it off but now I have access to a Wifi connection and I can't remember how to turn it on. I've spent all day trying to find any information on this at all and have come to the conclusion that HP has easily the worst support system for simple questions of any company I've ever encountered.
I am using an HP Envy dv7-7250us laptop, running windows 8.1. All my software is up to date. In the last month, every time i turn on the laptop, the internet connection drops. Running HP troubleshooter resets the wifi adaptor.
I have Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 installed. I went out to Intel's website and have the most current driver.
I have a HP ENVY TouchSmart M7-J010DX Laptop with Core i7 Haswell CPU and Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230 card. Product number is E0K83UAR and I'm running Windows 8.1 OS. Lately, I've experienced many occasions when the laptop fails to connect to a wireless network when other PCs in the same room connect. I should say it mostly connects, but with "limited connectivity" and no Internet access. I struggled during a week's vacation to connect and then had a problem connecting when I returned home, where I previously had no problems. And I'm having this problem on networks that previously were not a problem. I've read on this forum that many people are having similar problems. So, I'd like to upgrade the wireless/bluetooth card to something that is known to work more reliably. I assume I would have to stay in the Intel family. I saw one recommendation for an Intel AC 7260 card...
I have a x201 cto using 64bits Win 7. The wireless adapter is intel advanced-N 6200. However, I found my wireless always turn off suddenly and I can not turn it on anymore (even using Fn+F5) until reboot.
Just got a new T420 and tried the webcam feature but unfortunately it doesn't work. When Fn+F6 is press I only see the audio settings. I installed the latest driver from LENOVO and rebooted the system but it's still the same, just the audio settings. Updated the communication & hotkey as well.
I upgraded my hard drive to a SSD and that is done. Laptop works fine. Installed the Samsung SSD software and it says I need to Enable AHCI to get the SSD running at full potential.
I searched the BIOS and do not see anyplace to change this. I then went to the Device Manager in Windows 8.1and I do not see any ATA/SATA controller. All I see is a RAID controller. RAID controller in a laptop?
I have a HP G60-519WM laptop. The wireless connection is off. It tells me to "Use the switch on the front side of the computer, or function keys if available to enable wireless capability on this computer. I cannot find that switch or button anywhere. I'm not sure how it was turned off as it is not my laptop. One day it worked the next day it didn't.
Is there a way to enable num lock on startup for the HP envy x360? It is frustrating to enable it, I use the pin method on windows 8, simly because its only 4 character and I don't have to hit enter. There is also no light on the key to indicate its status.
Year old i7 Envy Dv7-7398ca notebook with Samsung 840 Pro x 256 SSD. Windows 8.1. I updated to the SSD soon after I purchsed the notebook.
No issues except the Samsung Magician SSD software keeps flagging me that AHCI mode is disabled and needs to be enabled and I do not see it in BIOS. Nor do I see anything that relates to it in Device manager like IDE or whatever.
It appears the SSD is not optimizing itself based on the fact it thinks AHCI is disabled.
I have an HP 2000 laptop and all of a sudden the wireless function will not work. no matter what I do the button stays orange. I do not have Wireless Assistant installed on this computer. I tried to download it from another computer and install to mine, but it stated that the version was not accepted. I have only had this computer 6 months.
I have been trying to disable SecureBoot and enable Legacy boot. This is a fairly straight forward process, press F10 to enter the BIOS, scroll over to the proper area and press F5 over Legacy boot to enable it (Which automatically disables SecureBoot). I have tried this quite a few times and each time have had no success. Everytime I change this setting and restart the computer it just ends up with Legacy Boot disabled and SecureBoot enabled. Yes, I am saving the settings, if I change other settings (Such as Virtualization support) they do save. Why I cannot save these settings after changing them?
I have an HP Envy 15-U010DX. I have also updated the BIOS and am running the latest version.
My computer: HP Envy Sleekbook 6 - 1153eo Windows 8 Pro
AHCI is currently disabled on my computer and I wish to enable it to get the most performance out of it. It can easily be enabled via the windows registry but to get it working i need to be sure that AHCI is currently enabled in the BIOS aswell. When I enter the BIOS there just isnt any advanced options available, only time and date and other basics. How do i find out wether or not AHCI is enabled in the BIOS? How do i get access to the advanced options in the BIOS to turn on AHCI (if it isnt already enabled that is)?
Most of the time I use my Envy 15 on my desk and hooked up to an external monitor. In this mode I do not use the laptop screen, so have it set to just display on the external.
However, to turn on the laptop obviously I have to open it up and press the power switch.
What I want to do, is turn it on whilst keeping it closed. I used to be able to do this with my Dell Latitude E6400, as it has an option in the BIOS to turn on automatically when AC is connected. Thus, when I turned it off I would simply unplug power, then to turn it on again would just plug the power back in without having to open lid.
I have looked, and the Envy 15 BIOS is very limited and I don't see a similar option. Is there possibly another solution to get it to turn on when closed?
I have an envy m6 touchscreen that is giving me problems that i can't solve. It has been great up until recently. i was using my laptop last nite when suddenly it turned off but i didn't think that the battery shoukd have been dead yet. its acting as if the bat is empty and plugging it in just turn on the orange led by the power plug. when i press the power button it flashes for a second but the screen does nothing and it doesn't actually turn on.I'm using my phone to attempt to find a solution atm which is very frustrating. adding to the stress is the fact that i have school work projects and a midterm project on it that I need to finish.Almost forgot to mention it started doing a few other odd things over the last week such as the touchscreen going nuts registering phantom touches endlessly until i close/hibernate/shutdown it.
I can't seem to turn on my wireless receiver. The switch is in the on position and I use the VAIO PC Wireless LAN wizard diagnostic. It tells me
Software WLAN Switch is off Your software wireless LAN switch is off. VAIO PC Wireless LAN Wizard is unable to determine which application enabled wireless LAN. Please enable wireless LAN before proceeding.
What is "Software WLAN switch"? There is a plastic switch on the front of the laptop with "Wireless LAN" written above it, it is in the ON position. I don't know what is being referred to by "Software WLAN switch". How do I enable it? I really miss the simplicity of Intel Proset's Utility.
Since 2 years ago, I owned an Acer Aspire 9420. It is a 17" laptop with Intel CPU (Intel C2D T5600). According to Intel website, T5600 processor have Intel Virtualization Technology. However, for unknown reason, there is no option to turn ON Virtualization in the BIOS. Even Acer doesn't provide BIOS update that support this feature. My works involved VMware simulation & this prevent me from running 64 bit guest OS. Since buying another laptop seems not worth at all & Acer Aspire 9420 is a strong laptop to do heavy job, I'm determine, what ever it takes, I will enable Virtualization on this laptop.
For the past 2 years, I have working hard to achieve my objective. I has search & search in the internet and I found a couple of article about hacking the BIOS to enable Virtualization. This is a few forum's threads & articles I found:-
