    Hi, If you are talking about disconnecting a PCI Card, then you have to open the computer tower and unsecure the screws and undo the PCI Card.

To disable the Card without opening the computer go to Contron Panel then System then on a subtab click on the Hardware tab then click the button that says Device Manager. Then go down to Network Adapters and click the + sign then find your PCI Card. double click it then its either under General or Driver and find a button that says Disable or if you please you can uninstall it and that will disable it.

Error Message: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted. Remove device and restart.


I think you can try this steps and hope it will help you.
Try to reseat the Wireless Card in your machine.

You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
-Magnetic screwdriver
-Phillips P0 screwdriver
-5.0-mm socket for system board screwlocks
-Flat-bladed screwdriver
-Tool kit-includes

Turn the machine upsidedown

Remove the battery.

Wireless Card Removal

1. Loosen the PM2.0×5.0 screw 1 that secures the Mini PCI
compartment cover to the computer.
2. Lift the rear edge of the Mini PCI compartment cover 2, and
then swing it forward.
3. Remove the Mini PCI compartment cover.

4. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables 1 from the Mini PCI
communications card.
5. Spread the two retaining tabs 2 that secure the Mini PCI
communications card to the communications compartment
socket. (The board rises up).
6. Remove the wireless communications card 3 by pulling the
board away from the socket at a 45-degree angle.
**Reverse the above procedure to install a Mini PCI
communications card.

If happens that it does not work, I think you can just reinstall OS just to make sure if its Hardware or Software problem.

I need instructions on how to install a new Graphics card for my HP Pavilion a6600f. How do I go about doing it safely. I do not want to risk making a mistake. I will also be installing a new power...

From the manufacturer's web-site:

this motherboard:
  • Also supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards
  • Turn the computer off.

    Disconnect the AC power cord.

    Disconnect the "data" cord from the "on-board" video-card.

    Remove the side-panel.

    Buy a PCI-E video-card.

    Insert the video-card into the PCI-slot -- make sure that it is fully "seated".

    Connect the "data" cord from the monitor to the new video-card.

    Replace the side-panel.

    Reconnect the AC power-cord.

    Turn the computer on, and let Windows "discover" the new video-card, and load new device-drivers.

    Try to "clean" your PCI Express PC slot, it may be dusted - just disconnect your graphic card, then blow to PCI Ex slot and insert card back.
    Also try to download latest drivers from here and install it after your PCI Ex de-dusted:
    (for Windows XP)

    (for Windows 7)

    Good luck!

    Change from PCI Ex 16 back to Motherobard Video card

    Hi there.
    There are no jumpers to move at all, just turn the computer off, take out the PCI Express card, put back the side panel and plug the VGA lead into the on-board D-plug and boot up the computer and that's it.

    Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy PCI not regognized, No IRQ = NA

    From the creative site

    "Try the card in different slots
    • if you have an AGP card in the PC, try the PCI card in a non adjacent slot
    • assign as many IRQs as possible to PCI/PnP devices in the BIOS (consult your motherboard manual or contact your motherboard manufacturer/PC vendor for instructions)"
