Upgrade of Benq joybook 5000 WiFi card is impossible

Trying to upgrade my Joybook 5000 WiFi card, I discovered that something (probably a bios issue) allow not to turn on the WIFI transmission (pressing FN+F12 keys) if a card different from the original Intel 2100 3B (802.11b) is installed in the Mini-Pci slot.

How can I successfully upgrade to a 802.11g card such the intel 2200BG I bought?

Thanks, Giacomo

    Unfortunately, I just have the most recent bios version 0.32 (at least I can use a dothan CPU).

Yeah, i'd be willing to bet that you're right - it's a BIOS issue. you can try flashing your BIOS with the version on the manufacturer web site but honestly i'm not sure if that would help ya.

My Wifi is not working. My laptop sound is scratchy. I want to upgrade my processor from celeron to core 2 duo which one i should select for cpu upgrade?


Two main things to know before you can attempt a Processor upgrade.

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard?

2) What motherboard chipset is on the motherboard?
(Northbridge and Southbridge chip. Unless it's a motherboard that supports Intel Core 13, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)



According to specifications I found online just now, the BenQ Joybook A53 comes with an,
Intel Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://laptops.techfresh.net/benq-joybook-a53/

Scroll down.

(Only 512MB's of DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory that operates at 667Megahertz?
{ PC2-5300} Yecch! You need at LEAST 1GB of ram memory. (512MB + 512MB = 1GB.
2GB would be best)

Can you have the wireless function default to "on" rather than off and have to press fn f12 every time


Your BIOS settings have the wifi set as on automatically also the "Start up" will start the wifi in the Windows environment.
Check the start up list and see if it is in the start up menu" this is in the "program files"
You can pin or unpin here by right click and select from drop down menu.

I lost the bios password for my Benq joybook 5000.


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

It sounds like the video card could not handle the monitor in the board room - As it is unless you have a graphics based laptop you rarely get a high quality video card built into your laptop.

Causes aside boot your computer in safe mode - This is done by tapping F8 several times during startup

A menu should pop up - select boot in safe mode

A long list of text will pass in front of the monitor - Do not fret this is just Windows telling you what it is loading.

Once at your desktop you should be able to see everything clearly

Right click on your desktop

Goto Properties

Settings

Drag the Screen Resolution down to something more appropriate e.g. 1024 x 768

your computer might not able to support this capacity i suggest calling the manufacturer for Hardware compatibility, if it does not recognize, then the bios might not be able to recognize this big capacity, updating to higher version of bios might help but sometimes not, it all depends on your motherboard config.
