Wireless internet switch above the keyboard, right below the screen will not light up to indicate it's working properly. Cannot connect to the internet. How can I tell if the switch is faulty or if it's the wireless card? Any suggestions? Thanks...

    Hi, just wanted to say after all these months that mspcrepair's posting turned out to be the most accurate as far as the original problem. Sorry I took so long in posting this. Several crises happened over these months to combine with the holidays to make things very hectic. Anyway, I was just googling stuff and realized I had never posted an update. It was a driver problem all along and my wireless switch works very nicely. I have internet--everything works fine! Thanks to those who posted helpful comments...much appreciated!

First, make sure that the drivers are properly installed and that there is no "splats" or exclamation marks in device manager for your wifi device.

If the drivers are properly installed, you should have an extra "network" icon in your system tray (by your clock). If so, you should be able to right-click on it and view network connections. It will pull up a window where both your LAN (wired) and wifi connections are. If you see your wifi listed, right-click on it and you should be able to enable it, thereby activating your light and your wireless.

If you don't have any of the above ....you need to re-download the drivers for your wifi and reinstall. That should fix you up :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

There is another option also. I have a HP zd7000 and the wireless button hase never been able to work. this is because the circuitry for the wireless is placed on a daughterboard within the chassis. my zd7000 does not have this daughterboard so the wireless button is actually useless (thats what you get for buying second hand lol)

if you have to check this, it will require technical knoweledge (if you are not sure about taking a laptop apart I would strongly suggest you don't as you may do more harm than good)

so the question is... has the wireless button worked in the past/does wireless hardware show in device manager?

answer yes = reinstall drivers, if this doesn't work and you have the skills check the daughterboard is secure and not loose.

answer no again if you have the skills check that the daughterboars is a) THERE, and b) not loose before installing drivers.

in the evnt that there is no daughterboard, you can do what I did (get a PCMCIA wireless card) it doesn't make the wifi button work, but it does give me internet

Turn wireless on


The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up
through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or
Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no
additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the
right, then let go.


The switch will go back to its original position.





Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on
the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."


It might also say "Open network and sharing
center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.


Click to highlight the network and click the
"Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up
the router (if applicable).


If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway
page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to
see if security is enabled.


If it is, type in a new key and enter the same
number for the wireless network.

Brighten screen


Toughbook is a type of laptop computer marketed by Panasonic Corp.

The durable exterior makes it ideal for use in the military, government, hospitals and EMS systems.

The backlit keyboard is an accessory that can be added for convenience.


Check Power


Check the Toughbook to see if the power is on. Inspect the power cables to ensure they are intact.

View the available battery life on the screen of the Toughbook.


If the Toughbook is not receiving an adequate amount of power, the backlighting may not operate properly.


Optical Sensor


Remove anything that is obstructing the optical sensor.

The optical sensor is on the top right side of the keyboard.


The sensor reacts to light to determine if the backlighting should be turned on or off.

If there is anything obstructing the sensor, the backlighting will not work.


Wipe the sensor with a dry cloth to remove any dirt or dust that may be obstructing the sensor.


Connector Ports


Check the cables in the connection port to ensure the cables are securely inserted in each port. The connector ports that allow the keyboard to communicate with the LCD screen are on the left side of the keyboard and screen.


The keyboard cannot operate properly without solid connections, which are made with a USB and a function cable.


FN Button


Press the "FN" and "F12" buttons to brighten the back light.

The back light may be operating properly but you may be unable to see the light if it is too dim.

Pressing these buttons together will brighten the back light by at least four levels.


Temperature


Place your hand on the bottom of the keyboard. If the keyboard feels hot to the touch, the keyboard probably has entered a protective sleep mode.


The Toughbook will go into protective sleep when internal temperatures reach a dangerous level.


When this happens, allow the computer to remain shut down for a while in order to cool down before it will begin functioning properly.


When the computer feels cool to the touch, it is safe to use.

This typically takes 15 to 20 minutes.


Hope this helps

There is no display on monitor but monitor is ok


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,


if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.


To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.



Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

Hope this helps

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor. If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,

if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.

To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.

Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Press the power button if the screen remains black. Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.

Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.

Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases. Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop. Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.

Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.

Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.

Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover. Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it. Pull the bezel off the laptop.

Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.

Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.
If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.

I would like to disasemble my laptops hinges but dont know how


What is the Model Series number?
There is a slight difference between the ZV6000, and ZX5000/ZV5000 series, for this procedure.

I want to give you the link to the Service Manual, (Free)
It won't describe, or illustrate the entire procedure of removing the Hinges, but will help for me to guide you.

The basic procedure is to remove all electrical sources first.
AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. Work on a table.
Follow Anti-Static Precautions before you begin.

Have a multi-compartment container, for the various screws you will remove, and label each compartment for where the screws came from.
(You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch)

Open the laptop, remove the Strip Cover,

(Below the LCD screen, and above the Keyboard. There are screws to remove from the bottom, so that the Strip Cover can be removed)

The Strip Cover will be popped up, and out, and there is a procedure for this.
(Start at one end, work your way along, basically)

The Keyboard is removed next. There is a procedure so you don't break the tiny keyboard connection cable.

There is a Thermal Cover to remove.

Next are the Wireless Antenna cables, and Display cable.
There may also be a Display Ground cable.

Screw covers for the hinges are removed from the back. The hinge screws are removed next.

The above is a General, Basic, set of procedures.
Advise do not follow it.
It's just to give you a basic idea of what is entailed.

If your problem Does Not relate to the HP Pavilion ZV6000, ZX5000, or ZV5000 series of laptops, state what laptop manufacturer, and model series it is.

How to enable WI-FI function on Compaq Presario 2500 lap top.


Go to "network connections"

It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.

If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.

Wireless Problems!


The computer looks for the cable because wireless is not working.

If wireless card is usb try removing laptop battery, unplugging power adapter and wifi cards, connect in five minutes and see if it works

If it still does not work, reinstall wireless card drivers.
If you have a disk reinstall them from disk.
If you lost the disk download drivers from the Internet, post model on fixya to get the link.

If the wireless card does not work after reinstalling drivers then it is probably faulty.

Note: if you use laptop internal wireless, usually you need to activate a switch to get it working.

Radio disabled and cannot enable


Of course, I finally located the switch. It's more of a "button", and when it's turned off it is barely visible. Anyway, the radio button is right at the top center of the keyboard above the function keys. When it is on, it is lit up blue. When it is off, you may not even know it's there!
