Replace wireless adapter.

Replacing a wireless nic on a laptop is extremely easy. It will be under one of the panels on the back of the laptop. The cards are typically only 1 inch by 1 inch and will always have a black and a white wire attached. Pop the wires off with a flat screw driver. Remove any holding screws if applicable. On the sides of the card should be two metal clips. Push the clips out and the card should pop up. Remove card and install the new on at a 45 degree angle and press down and the clips should lock. Reverse steps. It doesn't really matter which side you install the wires but I always like to keep it the same. If the wireless card is a different one from the previous make sure to download and install the new wireless nic driver.

Pc card eject button popped out and won't go back in

I've had that happen before. I just started using the tip of a ballpoint pen to eject the card. Believe me, if it doesn't just slide back on, you might have to disassemble the laptop casing to put it back on...big hassle. I suggest you just use a pen, pencil or something similar to pop out the card.

Suddenly network card stopped work. can't connect internet

Try This: Unplug the power to the DSL Router for 20 seconds then plug it back up. Remove the power cord and battery from the laptop, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Turn the laptop over and look for the screw on the Wireless Card Cover. Remove the screw and the cover (it may be a number of screws depending you your system) then unplug the antenna cables to the wireless card (normally a black and white or black and gray cable). Remember which cable goes where before you remove them. Remove the screw that holds the wireless card in the slot, then remove it. Put the Wireless card back in the slot and secure it with a screw. Put the antennas back on the wireless card and then the cover. Put the battery back in, plug in the power cord and reboot.

If the system still does not find your wifi card, the card might be bad.

*** Sometimes the wireless card will be under the keyboard or palmrest instead of the bottom of the computer.

How can i locate and change my cmos battery for laptop fujitsu siemens v2010 pro

The above post sounds simple it is Not, the COMS battery in a Fujitsu V2010 is located just to the left side of the left hand mouse button,( just about where it says AMILO Pro) (under the top cover)
(All power off battery out)
To get at it you remove all the base cover screws including the four on the back edge.
Turn the laptop over and remove the power buttons plastic strip by levering upwards between the gaps that are to the left of the Num Lock key and the right of the Esc key, (use a very thin screwdriver) or slide a screwdriver between the Num lock key and cover leaver upwards, then do the same at the Esc key side, the four retaining lugs are left and right of the cover.
The screen should be laid flat as you do this or you will rip off the keys.
Unscrew the wrap over bracket (right of screen) that holds down a thin black cable.
Pull upwards (carefully) the three connectors in the two recesses below it. (Two in left recess one in right recess)
The cables in the right recess are held down with a strip of black tape remove it and remove the cable from the retaining lugs.
Remove the keyboard screw and push slightly towards the screen to get at the retaining strap and remove the strap by levering the lugs upwards on both sides, put the keyboard to one side.
The wireless card cable is slotted in a channel lift it out. Then unclip and lift out the card still attached to the cable.
Remove the left and right screen screws and carefully lift upwards and remove the screen with the wireless card still attached, put the screen to one side,
Remove the four RAM cover screws and lift off the cover put to one side.
There are 3 tiny screws at the back that are just under the screen location remove them, the last screw is just under the key board in a deep recess remove it.
Finally lift the top cover up slightly and push slightly towards the screens location as the COMS battery is attached to the mother board at front left. (Unplug it)
Work very carefully making sure you do not miss any screws, if it will not come off you have missed something. CHECK.
The cover should come off without any resistance.
The screws are different sizes apart from the base cover screws,( TIP) tape a wide strip of cello tape sticky side up on your work bench and group the screws on it marking with felt tip where the were located.
The wires on the battery are RED and BLACK
Leaver out the battery it’s held firmly by a sticky pad and change it (the wires come attached to the new battery. (Battery VARTA CR2032 3v 0405)
I am writing this from memory but I don’t think I have missed anything, remember if it will not move do not force it LOOK. (Something’s can be done not exactly in the order I have tried to explain it)
Replacement is the reverse of removal.
One site I was looking at wanted £45 for changing a keyboard, that’s a real rip off.
Hope this helps if in doubt take it to a shop.
Best of luck. teastheword find me on E Bay.

Hi, Simple question here. I have the Presario R3000 and there is a CD reader that pops out at the front left side of the computer and then there is some strange frame that pops out when I push a release...

Is it just a plastic frame that come out the side with the laptop logo on it?

If it is, thats just a spacer. That slot is meant for an expansion card like network adapter. Like those ones people get for verizon so they can have wireless wherever they go and get a good signal. It could also be used for a fir wire connection expanion card or for a memory card if you can find one that fits. It is bassically a mini PCI slot for a laptop,

You can throuw it out or just leave it in there, doesnt matter , its just a plastic spacer. Dell put them in every one of there laptops too. To put it back in, just push in the spring loaded stick thing that pops out, then insert the platic card back in.

A85-S107 Internet problem

Youre wireless card could be defective.

You can try unseating the card and reseating it.

To do this make sure the laptop is powered off all the way.
Remove the battery or you can cause other damage.
"Be sure to only touch the edges of the card to avoid Electro Static Discharge"

Close the laptop, turn it over.
There are two removable covers secured by screws.
Under the larger one of them is the wireless card and memory

The wireless card has two antenna wires coming from it a black and white one that just pop on and off.

If you need to you can remove the wires with your fingernail and then pop them back on with a finger.

The card is secured on both sides by a lever. Pressing outward on the levers should release the card allowing you to remove it.

Take it out and wait 10 seconds, then put it back in the way it was reconnecting the wires if they were disconnected.
Put the cover on, put in the battery, plug it in then see if this worked.

If not the pc card needs replacement.
