Sharp 1v18: PCMCIA slot damaged/loose

My sharp av18 fell on the PC wireless card. In trying to reinsert, the mount for the PC card holder appears to be loose; like maybe it broke loose from mount. PC card works fine in another laptop.

I opened the av18, and normally not intimidated by mechanical things or computers, the compactness made me close and e-mail you.

Possible to send a copy of the page that shows the mounting, so I can have an idea of where I am going and what I am doing.

Maybe you have an easier/better idea? Always open to stepping out of the box.

NEED TO CONNECT COMPUTER FOR WIRELESS ACCESS. DO I NEED A PC CARD OR A USB ADAPTER?


A USB adapter will work well.

if you have an available PCMCIA slot you could use that as well.

If the computer is a desktop and you have available PCI/PCI- Express ports you could get an internal wireless card like this:

Can you locate the physical switch for the wireless on the laptop? If so, turn it off for 5 seconds and then turn it back on. If that doesn't work you may need to reinstall the wireless driver.

Try uninstalling your pcmcia drive in device manager and then restart the laptop and let windows reinstall it. With the pci wifi card out of the slot of course. Then once the laptop is started back up and the slot is reinstalled by windows reinsert your wifi card and reload the proper driver.
Good Luck.

Sharp Actius AV18 does not recognize added 512MB PC2700 RAM. The machine still only sees 256MB. Is there something else I need to do?


I assume the laptop had originally 256Mb RAM and you put 512Mb RAM in a the spare memory slot and you expected to see 768Mb of memory, is this correct? Try removing the 256Mb memory module and insert the 512Mb memory module and see if the laptop boots up with 512Mb of RAM. If it doesn't boot up then the RAM is either incompatible or faulty. Try using RAM modules from the same manufacturer.
