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.
I have a HP Pavilion M6-1045DX laptop and I recently tried to plug it into a display through the Analog RGB and I saw a spark and the laptop shut off. During that time I ran the laptop straight from the AC adapter without a battery because I don't really use it.So the laptop shut off and I tried turning it back on and nothing happened. The charge indicator light turned off even though it was still plugged in. I thought maybe the power adapter stopped working or something but I tested it with a voltmeter and there was still power in it.
So I decided to put the battery in and the laptop was able to turn on, but after a while, this one area that i never felt heat there before was really hot and later smelled like something was burning.But anyway, when it booted up, the screen resolution was really low and was on maximum brightness. When the laptop finished booting, it randomly started installing drivers (such as the WLAN and intel rapid storage) and yeah. Sound doesn't work either. I tried to plug the laptop back in and the battery won't charge.I turned it off and took out the battery and tried running it off from the AC adapter only but the power light was blinking constantly and when I press it, the WiFi button light (F12) turned on for a second and back off. I also hear this high frequency noise that I never heard before somewhere in the laptop.
My laptop wont turn on, whenever I press the power button all the lights light up for about a second, I here the fans turn on and then it shuts off. When I plug the charger in the the charger light blinks, but thats it.
I pressed the power button and the light came up for about 5 seconds. Then it's gone. Nothing came up on the screen. Cpu fan did not work and keyboard light did not turn on. I tried holding the power button for seconds. I tried turning on with ac adaptor only. I tried taking the RAM out and then turned it on. Nothing works...
I am a Thai student studying in Okinawa, Japan. So now I am just so nervous because I wont have a computer to work on.
I have an SR290 and recently I had a problem with the wireless. The wireless switch at the bottom left corner does not seem to work; when I move it to the ON position, the LED does not light up green to say that it is working. In the Device Manager, the wireless device does show up, and I can disable/enable it, and it indicates that the wireless card is still functioning. Under network connections, the network connection does show up, but it cannot detect any wireless networks. My other devices can pick up the wireless signals.
My first month with this brand new notebook was problems it gave me a blue screen and shut down on me. I thought it was normal being that it was my very first notebook. My hp pavilion notebook is only 3 years old but it now it has a blinking caps light and a orange light on the wireless key. I have tried to hard reset it but nothing works. I was use to it shutting down on me and restarting again but this time it would not come back on. I call Hp tech and now I'm being told this computer is obsolete and can't be fixed.
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.
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................

I don't wan turn on both laptop screen and my external monitor at the same time. So is there any way to make my laptop screen auto turn off as soon as I plug my external monitor vga cable to my laptop (without pressing Fn + F2 Keys) ??
Ive been having a problem with my laptop since Friday. Basically i went to turn it on and it didnt turn on so i cleaned all the dust out of the charger and my battery and tried it again and it managed to turn on. However, after being on it for around 15 minutes it just cut out on me. And now every time i go on it, it cuts out after a little while of it being on. I then cant turn it on for around an hour then it manages to turn on and then cut off and im back to square one.
Its nothing to do with the charger because that works fine so its clearly something to do with the hardware. Has anyone had problems like this before and is it easy to sort out?

I recently bought a Lenovo z50-70 laptop with Broadcom Wireless Adapters. Its a Windows 7-32 bit system. Wireless LAN worked fine for a few hours, but after a restart it started saying Wireless Capability is turned off. i have tried following:
1. looked for a hardware wireless switch. there is none. 2. reinstalled WLAN drivers from lenovo site without success. 3.restarted WLAN Autoconfig service for no avail.
I am not able to install the Wide Wireless Lan Driver64 in my Lenovo B460 laptop which is running with Win 7 64 bit ultimate version.When i installed the avialable drivers fro lenovo site,it showed No matched driver error showing.
I have a sony laptop vgn-s260 and the problem i have is that each time that I try to turn on the wireless card, the laptop restart and the only way to maintain the laptop working is turning the wireless card off.
When I plug my acer laptop charger into the wall, the green light lights up accordingly. when i plug it into my laptop the greenlight begins blinking and my laptop does not charge. is something wrong with my laptop or charger? Yesterday my laptop just shut itself off, i wasnt monitoring the battery because at the time it was plugged into the wall. Now its not charging anymore, did I burn something out?
My Latitude D800 laptop recently had trouble to turn on. When pressed the power button (no matter how hrad or hard long to press), nothing happened, totally dead, power light didn't turn on at all. I tried with battery (two batteries) only, AC power only and both, same thing, but sometimes it could be turned on when I waited for a while or came back later and tried again.
My not too-old XPS L502X will not turn on. The battery indicator still has a single light remaining when pressed. When I plug in the power adaptor (blue light on power adaptor is on at this point) the blue light goes off.
Have tried in multiple plugs, same thing happens.
Have tried taking out battery and replacing, holding down power button for 30 seconds.
Laptop: Dell Inspiron 1564 OS: Windows 7 Home Problem: Does not turn on.
Cause: Was working fine until last night when I shut it down, did not turn on when I tried to turn it on later in the morning. No known cause.
Details: My laptop does not turn on in anyway - with charger put on or without charger.
It was working fine when I shut it down the other night but when I tried to turn it on in the morning, nothing happened. When I press the power-on button, just battery light (of the 3 lights on laptop) glows for a while and then it goes off as well. Other than that, nothing happens at all. I have tried taking the battery out and putting it in, plugging ang unplugging AC - nothing works.
I left the laptop unattended whole day and when came back, I tried to turn it on and the battery and power lights both glowed this time and continued glowing but screen was blank and no sound nothing happened for a few minutes and then I powered it off. Tried to turn on again, nothing happened, back to old problem as stated earlier i.e. only the battery light glows for a while and then goes off ....
