How to turn radio on dell laptop?

There isn't an FM radio built into this unit. So maybe you are trying to get internet connected radio stations to play perhaps?

You can do a search for a program called a "radio Aggregator" which allows you to receive radio stations form all over the world. or you can just go to your favourite radio station an see if the stream live music over the web.

This is a radio station in England that I listen to via the internet from time to time, but most big radio stations stream these days.

I have No wireless connections

Have you followed the procedure described on page 70 of the Asus User Guide for your laptop to use the Fn + F2 keys to turn on your wireless radio - and do you see the normal wireless led indicator lit?

If yes, then you will probably need to do a diagnose & repair (or troubleshoot problems) depending on which version of Windows you are using. Right click on the wireless connection indicator in the bottom right area of the Windows Status bar and take the option from there.

If you normally only hibernate your laptop rather than powering it off fully, try doing a full power off and restart as hibernation can sometimes get the wireless adapter in a strange state.

Lastly, check that you only have one wireless manager enabled, i.e. use the Windows Zero Configuration manager by preference.

Well, I'm at school and want to listen to music. I need help unblocking please thank you Brandii

You'll have to use a proxy. Try some of the ones at Take note, however, that this will severely decrease your internet speed, so you might not be able to watch videos on youtube. You might also be able to use google translate to translate the page from some random language to english, sometimes that gets around the block as well.

You could also try using different streaming services like pandora, (though I'm not sure how well that one works anymore), and similar internet radio websites instead of youtube that might not be blocked. Happy hunting!

Acer aspire 7540 only 1year and 3 months old noticed in the last 2 months that the internet connection is very poor. tried lots what can i do?

Your router could be going bad, if everything else has remained the same.
I would check for malware and other unwanted programs. They could be messing with your performance.
A suggestion--go to www. and download the free malware checker. That sure might help.

Are you in the UK?

1 The easiest thing to do is to record it using a freeview box onto either a video or other recorder.

2 If that's not possible try listen again if on bbc.

3 It's difficult to record directly onto a pc without a tv capture card (and essentially doing 1 above) when you can set a timer to do it automatically.

4 if you don't have that you can connect the headphone output to the microphone input and use the Windows Sound Recorder to then recod the outpu

Cannot maintain wireless connection

Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).
