Finding wireless card type my Vaio VGN-FS660 laptop has

I have a Vaio VGN FS 660 laptop (Sony). a couple years ago the wireless card in it was replaced with a 1370 mini-pci NIC card (Dell I think). recently i had to reset this laptop. when i did, now the wireless does not work. I think i need drivers for it, but i need to find out for sure if what kind of card is it for sure. how can i tell? i tried to download some drivers from Dell for this model (1370) but when i tried to install them, it said it could not detect the proper hardware.

any thoughts on this?

You will have to remove the cover to the wireless card (located on the bottom of the machine) to see exactly what it is. Then you can go to the manufacturer web site, and download the correct software/drivers.

DIP SWITCH BIOS RESET POSITIONS SONY VAIO VGN-fs660


Hello,
There are 2 ways you can reset your bios2_bing.gif.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

SONY VAIO CMOS BATTERY LOCATION


Correction...

The CMOS battery is located under the system board, and is not accessible from under the keyboard.

The keyboard has to be removed in order to change the CMOS batter, (another reason why I don't like Sony laptops.)

Below is the batter I just pulled from a user's VGN-FS660\W 892cbd5.jpg
