Question about HP Smart Buy Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless button the network on and off button on the display doesn't work. I understand it should turn on by itself but it just doesn't. I has worked on and off but not every day. I have tried disabling and enabling the network connection and uninstalling and reinstalling the network driver. Yet nothing has worked. I read in another forum that I should restore the BIOS defaults but I dont know how to do that and I am afraid because this is a work laptop. Please Help I have been trying to fix the problem for a couple of weeks and im going crazy. PS I know there is no problem with the actual card cuz when it decides it wants to work it works beautifully.

Ethernet and wireless not working


The wireless sounds like its not working or the drivers are not installed.

The Ethernet port may have been programmed with a static IP address or you do not have a DHCP on the network your plugging into.
open the network and sharing centre by right clicking on the network icon by the clock.

Then local area network.
Then properties.

Then internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
The display should look like this :-

My wifi not working


LOL, wifi does not work off a network cable. The network cable is used for a local connection to a modem or router. Wifi doesn't not require a cable. Did it use to work? Have you checked on both sides of the laptop and in front of the laptop to make sure you have not turned the wifi switch off if there is one? Have you checked to make sure you have not hit the FN (Function Key) + (F1 thru F12 function key) that toggles the wifi on an off? When you Press the FN key and hold it down while pressing the Function Key that corresponds to toggling the wireless normally it will display on the screen Wireless On or Wireless Off. The correct key should have a wireless signal icon like )))) on it. That's the key you want to hit while holding the FN key.

My new laptop doesn't work


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Wifi switch is turned on however, when i try to search for a wireless network i get a message saying that i need to turn on my wireless switch


So I understand that your wifi card doesn't work?If that is correct go to Toshiba site and check their support-from the other computer-of course.If card is dead, you will need usb wifi.

Wi Fi doesn't work. Have compaq 700. Says the


There are many reasons why wireless doesn’t work but lets look at it step by step

How it works is that there’s a card inside your laptop which detects networks “wireless only” that are in your house and near you like neighbours.

The most common mistake is “the button” there is bound to be a button either
On the side, the rear, the front of the laptop or even near the keyboard it usually has
A dot with signal lines that button switch on and off the wireless device so make sure its on and then wait 10 second for the signal to appear.

There is no button? Right then there’s a keyboard shortcut to switch it on and off
You must first press and hold the “fn” button or the function button then find the wireless key which is either “f8” or “f4” it varies from model to another but it always has the wireless logo on it and it is always one of the f keys.

Didn’t help? It could be you’re running multiple utilities to run your wireless, you either have to use windows utility which is normaly in your task bar but if that’s not working then another utility is using it, so find in your programs list “wireless utility” or “belkin utility” which usually does the same.

Didn’t help? Its getting more serious, makesure your driver is installed for the wireless, if you go to the device manager and then to the network area and there makesure your wireless drvice is enabled “no red cross on it” or else if you cant find a wireless device in there then it means your wireless card is faulty and need an expert looking at it.

It is good practice to re-install the wireless driver to fix most issues.

I HAVE a COMPAQ PESARIO CQ5O IT DOES CONNECT TO WIRLESS ROUTER WITH GOOD SIGNAL STRENGHT, BUT WHEN I TRY TO GET ON INTERNET IT SAYS IT CANT DISPLAY PAGE... Y.... IT WORKED THE FIRST DAY i GOT IT THEN IT...


Hello Sir

Are you sure you are reconnecting to the wireless router or not? If so please go to the wireless connection wizard and search again for the wifi connection and make sure that you are actually connecting to the wireless network.

You can also reset the wireless router from the reset button that is on the router itself (refer to manual for the location of the reset button) and try and to the above again.

I hope that this solution was of help to you :)
