Sony :: How Do I Turn On Wireless PCG-7Z1L Vista

May 16, 2009

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.

Acer :: Turn Off Default Wireless On Aspire 5741

Feb 12, 2015

I have an Acer Aspire 5741-5698 running Windows 7.  I never want to connect to the internet wirelessly.  I only want to connect rarely with a wired connection.  I can disconnect the wireless by pressing Fn+F3 but I never see a "Launch Manager".  The problem is when I turn off the computer and turn it back on, it defaults to connect wirelessly.  I went to Manage Wireless Networks in Control Panel and selected Manually Connect to my home Network.  That did not work.  How can I stop it from connecting automatically wirelessly?

Acer :: Extensa 5420-5038 Wireless Dont Turn On

Nov 6, 2008

I bought an Acer Extensa 5420-5038 today, it cames with Vista Home 32 bits english version. As I am a brazilian, i formated it and instaled Vista Ultimate 64 bits Portugues version. The problem is, after the instalation, the wireless dont work anymore.

The light that usually flickes over it doesl not turn on, and it appears as an unknown network device on my hardware manager.

I've tried Atheros and Broadcom drivers from acer site but they didnt work and it told me the driver won't be installed because the appropriate card isn't installed....

In other words, it's telling me I dn't have an Atheros/Broadcom wireless card, but with the original instalatio of Vista it WAS working perfectly.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Won't Turn On - Vista Screen Saying Configuring Updates

Feb 28, 2013

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has suddenly decided not to turn on. I get up to a Windows Vista screen where it says "Configuring updates stage 3/3" and then it restarts itself again and again. I can't get it to do anything else. Before it wasn't even getting that far and it was restarting itself and giving me the option to launch startup repair which I did. I tried to restore the system but I was told that there were no system restore points. I turned it off and on again and it then started to take me up to the configuring updates page but no further than that and I no longer get the launch startup repair option. I have also been having a problem with the battery where every time I turn it on it says "ac power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined" and then won't charge so I can only run it when plugged in but at the moment I would just like to get it to turn on!

HP Pavilion Dv7 Networking :: Wireless Button Won't Turn On After Upgrading OS To Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Jul 26, 2012

I am having trouble with my wireless button, it remains red/orange despite touching it and restarting my laptop several times.  My laptop is an HP Pavilion DV7=1135NR, it is originally installed with Windows Vista 64bit. However, i have it reformatted and change the OS to Windows7 Ultimate (32bit). And now i the wireless button wont turn blue. And also the wireless button located in the taskbar is no longer there.
Some additional background: The same problem (wireless wont turn blue) had been recurring before i had it reformatted but then i seek assistance then to HP customer assistant, and installed atheros. the problem had fixed for a while and the same problem would recur.  However, i can turn it blue once i restart the laptop or when the "WLAN disabled" message would appear in the task bar and i would immediately touch the wireless button.
i tried downloading a driver from HP but still not working. right now i am connected via ethernet cable and its such an incovenience.

HP/Compaq :: Wireless - Vista Dv6244us

Apr 13, 2009

when using vista my wireless will just stop working after a couple hours of use.

Basically it will just disconnect me from what ever router I'm using, and I will be unable to reconnect until I restart the pc.

The weird thing is that when using Ubuntu on the same laptop, I never have this problem.

So based on this, I'm guessing that it isn't a problem with the actual wireless card, rather some problem with the drivers; but that's just me making an educated guess.

Acer Aspire E15 :: Start Running 8.1 Won't Turn Off Wireless Adapter On Shutdown Preventing Net Access

Jan 8, 2015

I have also tried disconnecting from network and turning off wifi from the signal strength icon as well prior to shutdown.  When the adapter stays open when I return to the laptop and connect again it shows that i have been connected via the adapter for days at a time. This eventually leads to the connection being clogged up and causing timeouts preventing me from connecting to the net. I stopped ittwice  but dont know what I did.

Sony :: Stopping Wireless Static In SZ Series (after Upgraded Wireless)

Mar 20, 2010

if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.

So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.

I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.

Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................

Dell Latitude XT :: Wireless Dropping In Vista?

Feb 17, 2009

I have a Latitude XT running Vista 32bit, 64GB SSD, Bluetooth 360, and Dell 1395 WLAN card. My issue has been when I am pulling or sending large amounts of information accross the network, my Wireless stops functioning and acts as if I disabled the card. I cannot search for any networks and opening the mobility center I can turn the wireless off and on but it will not work till I reboot the Tablet.

My XT has all the current OS and Driver updates but this is really starting to bug me. This happened to me 2 times yesterday when I was copying an Adobe Standard 8 DVD to a server so that we can do installs without needing to carry the DVD. I would get about half way through the file transfer and my network would disconnect with a red X.

Sony :: TZ Won't Turn On

Jun 4, 2009

I have a Sony TZ which was run over by a car a few weeks back. The only issue at first was the screen was cracked - it turned on and I had been using it with the broken screen for a couple weeks with no issues.

Todya my replacement screen arrived and I replaced it and now it won't turn on at all. What could I have done to cause that? Any ideas? Will it be repairable if I take it to a shop for less than the cost of a replacement (TT I guess)?
