After the internet was out for a few days and finally came bck on after repair my daughters laptop quit connecting to the internet. I cant get it to connect through Ethernet cable or the wireless card. The lights wont even come on the wireless card anymore. Ive tried a new card and all sorts of things.

My daughters are very young and use the laptop to play games on Disney only I really don't wanna go out and buy them a new laptop that they will destroy and really don't want them using mine. Please help. Its a dell latitude c400 running xp sp3

SOURCE: Ethernet port not "active"

Hi there.
Restart the PC and go into the bios to make sure the on-board LAN is enabled, if it is try as jery says and try another ethernet cable.

Post back please and good luck

Once connected to the ethernet cable you might have to press the tiny reset button on the back of either your gateway,router,modem of whichever service you have(Cable,DSL)

My dell c400 laptop will no5 connect to qwest wifi router


There is a reset switch on the router you have at home. Use a paper clip to press and hold the reset button in for a few seconds to allow the router to reset. This will reset the router to default settings and you should be able to connect to it at this point. Log into the router and set up a securty key so that no one else cans steal your internet

The usb of my dell latitude c400 notebook is malfunctioning


Unfortunately, I have seen this many times. One of the major problems with the C400 model was the USB port failing. I have had many of them replaced under warranty, and I have repaired some. The USB port breaks loose from the mother board and stops working. It is possible to SOMETIMES disassemble the laptop enough to get to the port and re-solder the USB port connections. But is is a slow process for experienced people. And it does not work all of the time. i know that this is not the answer that you wanted.

Good luck with it.

Cant get on internet via wireless or wired connection.


use the lan connection to get online, then once prob clears you should be all set, otherwise back up your data and a fresh install always does the trick

Dell latitude C400 will not boot from hard drive.


Hi, This sounds like a dead hard drive. Still, you may want to try: 1. Enter your CMOS/BIOS and verify that your laptop can detect the hard drive. Further check if it is configured to boot first from the HD; 2. Slip in your XP or Recovery CD and boot from that. It may be that the boot section/files of your HD got messed up. When prompted, instruct the CD to repair; 3. Remove your laptop's HD and connect it to a 2nd PC as an external/removable drive using a 2.5 enclusore with USB attachment. Thereafter proceed to diagnose, check and hopefully recover your important files; 4. If confirmed of a defective HD, replace and reinstall your OS. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
