Question about Gateway GT5622 PC Desktop

Unable to find network adapter.


Made a massive error on Christmas day I had a laptop brought for me so I powered it up for the first time and uploaded windows vista Ultimate but the Upgrade selection was not available so I went for the option that was to install without an online connection. Since then the laptop layout has gone into what looks like safe mode and I am now unable to set up a wireless connection as when i do so the setup disk errors saying cannot find network adapter. When looking in the device manager folder on the laptop Network Adapter is not displayed.

Please Help.

    It's an acer 5715z laptop and your right it did have an os but only vista home thought I was being clever putting a ultimate on it for added features. All I need to do is delete this version of windows and restore the factory settings. All the old os is now listed as windows old. I thought I could delete the loaded version of windows and the laptop would revert back to the os supplied by manufacturer but I am unable to delete the file or uninstall.

    What laptop model is it, and why did you install windows Vista Ultimate? It should have already had an OS if you bought it.

Whenever you use coaxial or phone lines make sure to use a surge protector power bar. They have a thermistor in them to blow up and protect your equipment. I'd say you have blown a diode or ic that supplies power and converts data from the usbs. It may just be one of your voltage wires from your power supply.

0xe000227 code error


Chances are, if you're getting some error/code with this specific hardware (and you're unable to resolve it), it may be easier/cheaper/faster to disable or replace it, either with a different NIC (preferably a different make/model), or a USB wireless stick. Not all situations allow for replacement, but if that is an option, I would recommend it.

I've had to do this in the past. Ended up saving quite a bit of time, money and effort.

Good Luck!

Compaq laptop problem

OK, thanks. This is getting tiring eventhough staff here says they have this problem worked out, the wreakage was considerable. My ranking which is hard to come by at this level was decimated.

Did you get the Error Reporting service instructions on how to disable it?

Have you uninstalled Norton completely? Leave AVG in place until I get you the link to Avast.

I'll help you get ICS stopped. This is normally listed in the properties for Network, inside Control Panel. It would be listed as a service in the window. You select it and then choose uninstall.

Go ahead and rate this fixed so it doesn't get abused again. I only hope we don't run into this problem again this coming weekend.


ps I'll be looking at what updates to apply next.

Error Message on boot

IBM requires using a "branded" network adapter, meaning one that has IBM's name on it, no matter if it's broadcom,etc. There is a couple of workarounds for this problem which would enable you to use whatever wireless adapter you wish. I would google IBM R40, and error 1802 and you'll find the application you need. Unfortunately, I'm not able to offer it to you here.
Good luck
