    I reinstalled xp and installed the drivers. The ethernet driver will not load.
    Virus or bad network card????

    IT IS NOT THE NETWORK CARD. I HAVE THIS PROB WITH GATEWAYS EVERYTIME I FIX THEM. GATEWAY SUCKS. THEY USE "LATE" AND "EARLY" MODEL PARTS THIS IS PART OF WHY THEY **** SO MUCH ***. MOREOVER THE RESTORE CDS DONT HAVE THE PROPER DRIVERS ON THEM IF THEY DID i WOULD HAVE ETHERNET NOW. THE DEVICE WONT EVEN SHOW UP IN THE DEVICE MANAGER IT JUST DOSENT SEEM TO THINK IT IS THERE. BUT IT WORKED FINE BEFORE IT WAS WIPED (NOT WIPED BY ME OR I WOULD HAVE BACKED UP THE DRIVERS)

    That is certainly odd. I've had to download the drivers for the 7330GZ from Gateway many times and they always seemed to work. Are you trying to install it on a fresh windows install? Which operating system are you trying to install it on? I'm guessing it's XP since Vista would run at a snails speed on that laptop.

A bad network card can be the issue here, if you're SURE that you've gotten the right drivers from gateway and followed their instructions then I'd try getting a USB network adapter or PCMCIA card. For that laptop, almost anything should work as long as it's compatable with your operating system, but it's always best to buy at a computer shop and see if they'll let you try it and make sure that it's compatable with your computer before buying.

I have a hp pavilion dv6 and need to turn my wireless connectivity on


Go to control panel and click on device manager, scroll down to network adapters and find your wireless adapter. Once found right click on your wireless adapter and see if there is an error found usually you will see an attention mark yellow if there is an issue with the network whether its a driver or not. If it is a driver right click on the network adapter and click update driver.
If the computer has the best network driver for the hardware, right click on the wireless adaper once again and uninstall, restart your computer. Once restarted your computer should recognize your wireless adapter and you should be able to access the internet.
If unable to access the internet check the connections to your router and modem, if that doesnt work your will have to refer to your manufactor due to a bad network adapter/

Try to uninstall and reinstall your Local Area Network driver by going to the device manager from the control panel. expand the network adapter and right-click your LAN then select uninstall. Restart your computer and windows will automatically reinstall your LAN driver.

AMILO LI 2727 cannot attach to my (or any other) wifi network since upgrading to windows 7


Hi,

First Try This

Right click on the Computer desktop icon > Manage > Device Manager > Network adapters > right click on your Wireless Network adapter > Update Drivers Software...

If the Windows was unable to find drivers: go to the manufacturer website of your netbook > find your netbook model > download and install drivers for Wireless adapter

OR

You can try this solution:

Copy and paste the below text in to a text editor, save it and give it any filename with the extension .vbs, eg wirelessstart.vbs and copy a shortcut to your startup folder:

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")
do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop
WScript.Sleep 100
It would be better that you restart the system after doing that.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

Dell vostro 1700 NETIO.SYS 0xc0000098


This is probably a problem with either the media (bad disk, or picky optical drive) or with some hardware. In the first case, I would try to reinstall first, and if that fails consider using a different drive or disk (if possible). As it points to the Netio.sys file, in the second scenario it may be related to a network device (i.e., ethernet). My suggestion in that case would be to remove all devices possible from the computer, and to disable on-board LAN/audio in BIOS to see if that helps.
