    What about the WMP110? I have heard that some of the Linksys adapter cards have short range. I used to have a Netgear card, but wouldn't work with my new motherboard. The newer Netgear cards may work, but haven't tried one. I'm thinking that the older Netgear card just wasn't compatible with my new motherboard because of out dated firmware. The range was really good. It would pickup signals almost a block away.

see above for example you don't really need a special card, if you need better signal suggest to get a better antenna, thats about it.

    That WMP110 is also good, yes you're right that some of the linksys adapter are really not that good in receiving signal, you can also check this WMP54GX this are with MIMO technology, if you want to learn more about linksys you can ask me I work for them for 4 years...

Lenovo b750 is dead no power in lap top


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My computer will not detect my adapter when I put it in to the sd slot on my laptop


This might be an easy fix, but I'm not sure about the question. Is it an SD card or an adapter? Either or, here's what to do next:

Unplug the adapter and reboot the computer. Wait for it to boot it up completely (the lights and noises calm). Now, insert your SD card into the adapter, then plug the adapter into the computer. That works when USB has not been properly ejected.

If you have a driver disk for the adapter (doubtful these days), try installing it after rebooting, but before plugging in the card reader. Follow any on-screen instructions.

If nothing changes, you can look in "My Computer" or "Computer". Your main drive is C, DVD/CD drives are next (D and E), you should see your card listed after those, F maybe, this varies so check them all. If it's still not there look in Device Manager for driver problems, if all looks good the adapter may be bad.

For the laptop presario cq62 i tried to change the screen refresh rate but the only option there is, is 60 hertz. i beed 70 or higher


your screen refresh rates are governed by the graphics adapter in the computer so if it's not available, it's not available. for what it's worth, mine only has 60Mhz refresh rate. having looked at this range of laptops, it's unlikely that you would be able to upgrade the graphics adapter.

Cannot install parallel to USB printer cable.


I can only really offer a suggestion. But try unplugging the adapter with your pc off. Turn the pc back on insert the disk. Then turn the printer on and try plugging the adapter back in. If your adapter/printer are working you should receive a request to add new hardware. From this point you should be able to have it "search for the best driver for your device." If this doesn't work you may be looking about a bad adapter and or unresponsive printer. also try using a different usb port.

Cant install new wireless printer - wizard keeps asking for wep or wpa key


WEP/WPA keys are methods of encryption to protect your wireless network against intruders and hackers. If the install will not let you proceed without one or there is no means of doing this ( by checking a box proceed without key or something like that), you will need create one in your router. I assume that your pc is wired because if it was wireless your wireless card would also need the key before the router would communicate with your pc. Refer to your routers manual on how to create a key and after you do write it down. WPA is more secure. If your pc is wireless you'll also have to enter the key for your wireless card. If so I would recommend doing the router, then your NIC card and then your printer. If not, just create the key in your router (you'll probably have to reboot the router) and then do the printer. If you need the manual for your router or further help feel free to add a comment and I'll help you out.

Hi i've got a plustek 7200 scanner and its causing a usb power overload on my p.c. can i repair it ?


USB ports operate in pairs from a usb host controller. Normally these pairs of ports are side by side (ie parallel to one another along their longest side) each pair of ports can onlhy be supplied with a limited amount of current.

You can try either plugging the scanner into a port that has nothing in its adjacent pair OR

You can buy a powered USB hub that will be able to sustain the current required for your scanner
