Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba nb305. My husband did a backup last night and reset computer. He disabled WiFi prior to the back up and now we can't turn wifi back on. I have tried fn+f8 and nothing, I even tried a system restore. Called Toshiba and they said I had a ton of issues un my event reader and its a hardware issue. I could not afford their services so I was hoping to get some help here. Thank you

When you say "reset" do you mean a fresh install of Windows? Try and be as specific as you can in order for me to be able to help you as best as I can.

    My husband did a system restore using a saved image of the C drive. He only backed up the C drive nothing else.

SOURCE: Wifi switch not hooked up - stuck in off, how can I override swit

Did you check to see if the wifi was properly plugged in?
Usually this happens after they replace the motherboards or anything else that makes them unplug things.
I would check to make sure it's plugged in and check the wifi card if it don't plug in and make sure it's compatible.
Happy Holiday

SOURCE: My wifi says limited or no connectivity. How can i fix it?

there can be many possible issues here. So if you do not find the answer on the first try you should post what you have tried already. That said...
has your connection worked with this same equipment in the past?
If so I would unplug all devices from the wall and power off your computer. Then power up each, one at a time. Start with your modem, next router, next computer.
If still no connection, You should be sure your modem is connecting to the internet, by eliminating the router. Use an ethernet cable directly to computer. re-powering all devices with each con figuration.
If you do have a connection w/o the router then I would reset the router by using a paperclip to press the rest button on the back. this will reset it back to factory defaults.
Again re-power all devices and let us know how it goes.

What operating system is it?

SOURCE: Big issues with Vista on my Inspiron!

Did you try to "Restore this computer to another point in time"? Then you press F8, and choose "System Restore" then another screen asks if you want to go to safe desktop, or do a system restore, when you select system restore,another window, a bit like a calendar, and you choose a date prior to when you had problems?
Otherwise, please try this... when dell screen comes up on keyboard hit CTRL+ F11 twice only then you will see Dell pc restore by Symantec.Hit on restore and hit on i agree and select the option Restore the pc to dell factory settings and then it will restore the pc.
Otherwise you will have to obtain a Windows Vista install DVD, boot on this and repair/reinstall from That.. anyway try whats proposed and get back to me..

Restore FN + F8 key to reactivate Wi-Fi on Toshiba Satellite L500


Hi,
My laptop didnt enable the wifi with the fn+f8 key.
I even reset the cmos and nothing.
Then I went to toshiba drivers website and after installing the "thku" "toshiba hotkey utility" the fn+f8 start working and enable/disable the wifi. It now shows a popup windows when I press the fn+f8 key.

Before the wifi led was always off. Windows detected the wifi device but nothing on the wifi available list.
Now the led is always on, starts orange when I turn on the pc and blue when connected.

My battery only lasts about 1 hour


There are many standard techniques to improve your battery life. Turn off bluetooth + wifi. Close unused programs. Change your screen brightness to lower levels. Disable location services when not using GPS.
If these don't improve your battery life then its time to change your battery. Also make sure you are using the right original charger to charge your battery.

I'm using fujitsu lifebook s2020 and i have a problem with the wifi..my wifi is kind of disappeared or lost..how can i get it back? thank you


Good Day

The first thing you should check is that you WiFi is on. What I mean with that is that laptops usually have a button to switch on or off WiFi to generally save battery life. If you are sure that WiFi is on (usually the WiFi button's light is on) than check if ou can see a netwok adapter.

If you dont see it, there can be two reasons. 1. Another program which got installed on the laptop has controll over the WiFi and the WiFi will not be controlled my your Operating system. 2. Check the properties of your network place. It might contain the WiFi adapter disabled. Ceck under the properties and ut the tick poxes on "Show if adapter is connected" and "Show if there is a problem".

Last resort is to check under you Device manager (Right click My computer, Manage, Device Manager) and make sure the WiFi adapter's drivers are proberly installed.

Hope this helps
