Most systems today you can enter the BIOS with pressing F2 at boot. Some use F1, F10 or Del to enter setup (It should be on the screen at boot which key to enter setup) Once in BIOS navigate to the wireless device and see if it is Enabled

You can also look at the Function Keys, as most portables have a Fn + functin key combination to enable wireless (look for a radio tower Icon on a Fn Key, With Dell it is Fn+F2 not sure on HPs)

My wireless wont turn on with the Fn and F2 key.It was recently formated so i dnt knw if thats the problem


If your computer was formatted then may be a posiibility it doesnt have the drivers for the wireless card. Or may be its disabled from BIOS.
Fisrt make sure drivers are installed else you need to install drivers from dell CD or get it from dell website http://support.dell.com

To check BIOS settings.... Turn off computer Turn on and hit F2 to enter BIOS setup Find if Wireless switch is disabled Enable it incase its disabled or set it to default. Save and exit restart computer....it should be working now.

I have a T40 IBM that just got the 1802 error. downloaded a bootable fix that I made to a CD. Set both startup and network to look for the CD drive first. Cannot get past the double beep on the POST test...


Hello,

To correct this issue, you will need to remove the PCI wireless card from your laptop or disable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

On IBM's, the Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer.

After removing card or disabling the
mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu, boot your computer. Make sure to update your BIOS. The new BIOS version can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.
(http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-51708.html).

This issue has been corrected in the latests BIOS updates released.

After updating the BIOS, you can reseat the PCI Wireless card or enable the mini PCI settings in the BIOS menu.

Note that once you have removed the wireless card, you will not have wireless connection until you update the bios and replace it.

Hope this helps.

My Pc bluetooth is not detecting my Nokia 2730 mobile but when i use an externel bluetooth device it connects easily


Chances are your Bluetooth is disabled in BIOS.

  • Make sure the computer is turned off.
  • Press the ON button.
  • Immediately press the F2 key.
  • This should get you into BIOS config page.
  • Highlight the "Wireless" option & press space.
  • Highlight the "Wireless Devices" option.
  • In the top right side of your screen you should have a check-box labeled "Enable Internal Bluetooth".
  • Make sure this is checked (not empty).
  • Chose the EXIT button (bottom right).
  • The computer will reboot.
  • Try connecting your Bluetooth device again.
Hope this helps.

Disable internal wireless network card


Well I would access the BIOS on his laptop and do 2 things. 1) Enable a BIOS password and set it. 2) If the laptop has a BIOS controllable wireless setting , disable it. But this will disable the wireless TOTALLY.

Otherwise you need talk to your neighbor and have them set a security on their wireless router.

Wireless Button Disabled


After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!

I cannot enable the wireless connection on the compaq Evo n1000c


For the built-in wireless on this model (EVO N1000C) the key combination to enable/disable wireless is Fn + F2. If pressing the Fn and F2 keys together does not enable the wireless, it may be disabled in the BIOS.

If you need to check this, here are the instructions to enter the BIOS:
Turn off the computer. Power it on and immediately start tapping the F10 key about once per second until you see the BIOS screen.
