My Toshiba A205-S5851 wireless card does not seen to be working. The computer does not even recognize that the device exists. The switch on the front of the laptop no longer lights up when placed in the...


You can attempt to replace the card, however, given the issue you mention with the switch, I would say that the circuit that controls the card has failed in some way.
External USB devices can be bought quite cheaply now, and there are some micro types that perform quite well, so i would certainly advise you move on to this option. i would however advise you strongly to avoid the cheaper imports, I had one melt in my USB port...

When I attempt to download photos onto my laptop I either get a message saying the USB hub cannot take the power level required or there is no recognition at all. Any suggestions?


You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Wireless used to work and now does not function. i already did a system restore. the device does not appear on the device manager. is it blown up and do i need to get a wireless card for my PC slot?


The only way to rule out that the slot is bad is to try another card.If your pc see's it then problem solved.If not at least you know whats .You can always use a usb wireless if it is bad.

How is the T42 adapted to make it wireless?


you can buy an expansion wireless card. there are models ranging from "B" standard to "N". look for the one that fits best your needs and don't leave the usb wireless connection devices unchecked, they may be cheaper than the expansion cards, but they may get the hold of one or 2 usb slots. but this model of laptop generally comes with an integrated wireless connection device. if it's broken, and you don't have an expansion slot, you'll have to get the usb models.

I have a wireless card in my Dell Dimension


The first thing I would try would be to reset the card, by removing the cover (if you are comfortable), removing the card from the slot and reinserting in the slot or moving the card to another slot (if there is an identical slot). If that doesn't work, replace the wireless card either with another wireless card or a USB wireless network adapter (external adapter that connects to a USB port). Good luck.

Questions about replacing ethernet card on my Dell desktop


Any ethernet card will work fine. Just be sure it's the fit's the correct slot. You probably have a "white" slot which is a pci slot. If it's a longer "black" slot then it's isa. More than likely it came from a pci slot. Before you buy one, confirm the type of slot. In additon, before installing it go to control panel and system settings, hardware, device manager and remove the old one by right clicking it and select delete or remove. Shut down the computer follow instructions for new card.
Probably will have to install the drivers first then shut down and install the new card. Good Luck.

Is it a built in card in a mini PCI slot? .... I had one die not long ago ... didnt show any problems in device manager ... the status light was on ..... it just didnt work.

Replacement with a new card was the only option.

Hi,

if it works on the onboard usb.
Theres a chance that either the pcmcia slot drivers are incorrect, or the actual slot is faulty.
Try it in another slot, if you have 1.
update any onboard device drivers. if applicable. try the card in a different laptop. to eliminate the card. alternatively, try a different card in the slot. wifi card et,c.

Fujitsu P1510 wireless card replacement


Some laptops have a modem or wireless card that clip onto the motherboard like how the RAM is fitted to the motherboard. This card is larger than the RAM and may have one or two wires connected to this card. If so you will be able to replace this card.

If the wireless is a chip and is mounted on the motherboard then it would be impossible to replace.
Your only solution to this problem is to buy a PCMCIA wireless card and insert into the laptop's PCMCIA slot or use a USB wireless device. You may have to go into the BIOS and disable the internal wireless device.
