I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit edition on my Vaio FW490 (upgraded from Vista 64). I received the free upgrade disks from Sony. When I checked my device manager I noticed that the driver version for the WiFi Link 5100 is 220.127.116.11 dated 5/28/09. On the Sony Site, they list the version for Windows 7 as 18.104.22.168 dated 10/8/2009, and when I checked on the Intel site, they are recommending driver version 22.214.171.124 dated 10/21/09.
I'm trying to get the latest video driver from Intel, but I couldn't install it. It gives me a message saying something like the product compatibility is not verified for my system. How do I get the latest driver for my gm965 chipset?
I been having off and on BSOD issue and I was advided to possibly update my video driver via this site to the latest. The problem is that when I try to update it keep telling me that my laptop does not meet the minimum requirement and it would abort the update.However, I dont get why it wouldn't meet minimum requirement and it doesn't note anywhere within readme file what is the minimum requirement to install this latest video driver.
I had Vista on my notebook and downgraded it to Xp.
And now I can't download any of the Video Controller VGA Compatible driver that is on the internet. I tried many download links and none of them wanted to complete the installation. It always says can't install. And now I tried to uninstall this driver and install it back again but it's gone and I don't find it anymore on the device manager.
I just got a new HDX16. Been having issues with the intel 5100 agn. I've updated drivers to no effect. It would stay connected for awhile, but loose all connection at times. Its starting to be a pain. It can't even pickup my neighbors' connects and I have 10 in my area which my Toshiba picks up. Its paired to the Dlink DIR-855.
Every time I boot up the computer and switch on the WiFi/Bluetooth button on the right side - only the Bluetooth light turns on above the keyboard.
I go to Device Manager and find that the "Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN" slot has the exclamation sign next to it so I disable the card and then reenable it again, then the problem is gone (the WiFi light turns on and I can now finally see wireless networks in the "Connect" window) .....
i have just purchased a new acer aspire 8730g-6353 and for some reason i cannot connect to the internet wirelessly. i can see the networks available and attempt to connect, but i'm never given the chance to input the WEP key to connect. it gives me an error telling me my troubleshooting options (which just alludes to it being a problem with signal or some garbage like that, but there is 100% signal strength at any given time).
I just recieved my Latitude E6400 today. I like the laptop, but the Intel Wifi Link 5300 AGN adapter continually drops my wireless connections to my home Linksys WRT54G access point and router. This is a version 5 Linksys unit running in mixed b/g mode with WEP encryption. It is running with a unique SSID which is not broadcast.
At first, my connections would drop and it seemed related to the Control Point software preinstalled on the E6400. So I uninstalled the Control Point System Management and Connection Management software, and this seemed to result in a small improvement: I can do a download successfully, but if I'm idle any amount of time the connection drops. This last makes me think power to the Wifi Link card might be getting turned off somewhere if there is no activity. However the Control Point Security Manager software is still installed (as it came from the factory) and might also be contributing to the problem.
I've used an 802.11n-compatible WiFi card in my home.The driver version for the WiFi Link is 126.96.36.199 and is dated 07/08/2008. The Linksys access point has been here a couple of years and is running Linksys firmware version v1.00.6. It is set up for 128-bit WEP encryption. I've had numerous laptops connect to it, all with older Broadcom b/g cards, and as long as the WEP encryption is set properly there has not been a connection problem. now to see if I can duplicate the connection dropping issue.
I clean installed the Windows 7. However, I am unable to install the Intel chipset driver. I try to install the one download from the Sony website and the one download from Intel website, but there is a error message come up to say I have a imcompatible machine (something like that). Because I can't install the newer Intel chipset driver, the SM Bus Controller is not installed properly too. It has a ! mark besides it.
I downloaded pictures and videos from my samsung phone and when viewing the videos they are upside down and I can't rotate them while viewing and if I rotate before viewing they still wind up upside down....
