Signal strength is varies depend on your position,
Hardware type, wireless provider line-of-sight (how
many obstacles that blocking the signal), and other
factors.

Make sure you connect to the same wireless spot.
Or at least go to places with wireless spots and compare
signal strength.

If you never have a strong signal from at least 5 different spots
(make sure you check it's the top 5 best spots you find,
ask others who connect to the spot also to make sure)
then you go to your repair shop and ask them why.

But, if you at least have 1 strong signal then
your spot just having a weak transmission.

How to turn on the wireless switch on your Dell notebook computer

The first thing you need to do is locate your wireless switch. It is normally located on the left hand side of your notebook computer.

Next examine the switch to make sure that it is in the middle in the On Position. See the picture below. Note a common issue that will happen is when taking your notebook in and out of your bag that the switch with get knocked into the Off Position.

If you have you already have wireless networks configured and you are in range of the networks the computer will automatically connect to the network. Note this has to be setup through the Dell QuickSet utilities for Wi-Fi network connections.

Below listed are the different color indicators for the Wireless Activity Indicator

Flashing green - The system is searching for a signal.
Green - The system has detected a wireless signal and has good strength.
Yellow - The system has detected a wireless signal, but it is moderate to weak in strength.
Red - The system failed to detect a wireless signal, or the wireless signal is extremely weak.

Sounds like your hard drive is going bad. Best thing to do is to take it to a shop and ask them to check your hard drive. Or, if at all possible plug it into another PC externally with a external HDD kit and check it with programs such as crystal disk info.


Best of luck

Spilt drink on inspiron 1720. after letting dry


Make sure you DO NOT plug in your lap top to the power out let. This could cause a shock.
You see the Dell media direct, means your CMOS is OK.
But if Windows is not loading means the spill could have damaged your hard drive. I would strongly suggest you take it to a shop where they repair laptops.
This way you may have to replace your hard drive, but save your note book.

My book was working normal, I had only had it for 6 months


A first step might be to consult a reliable local computer repair shop (or a knowledgeable friend) and ask them to check it and - if necessary - to remove the hard drive from the case and test it separately.
If this reveals that actually the hard drive itself is damaged and if really your career depends on it, then it may be worth considering to send it to a professional data recovery service.
However, be warned that these services are very (incredibly) expensive!

Hard drive


jamesroland1,
You have a computer with a 40GB hard drive and you want to add another hard drive (150GB), is that correct? Not knowing the rest of your system age, setup and configuration makes it hard to know what you may encounter. If you can add more memory (RAM) it is always helpful to make applications work faster and multiple ones as well. You may want to add an external hard drive if you don't have the room or don't feel comfortable with opening the computer and installing an internal hard drive. If you want to replace the lower capacity drive, you need to reinstall the operating system on the drive and start from scratch.

Out of signal


Signal problem could be down a many reasons,
maybe weak signal area, or even a damaged hardware antena, but also can be a software problem too, so yes would be worth a try to reformat the phone. Note that all data stored on the phone will be lost unless backed up on to PC or microsd card.

You can hard reset the phone (Factory Settings - Reinstall)

Switch the phone "OFF"
Hold "3" (button) + "Green Call" (button) + "*" (star button)
Switch the phone "ON" while holding the above three buttons.
Continue holding for about 20 seconds then let go.

Please note this will format all the saved information stored in phone memory.
