    hmmm... that antenna logo is used for turning off and on the built in wireless... not sure why you would need a PCMCIA card. Unless the laptop doesnt have an internal wireless card. If it does have one, you can hit the FN key and then the Antenna key while hilding FN down to toggle the internal wireless off and on.


    Check something for me, go into the windows control panel, open the SYSTEM icon, go to the hardware tab in the window that pops up, click on the device manager button... youll get a list of hardware thats in your machine... click the plus symbol next too Network Adapters and let me know what devices are listed there and also if anything has a ? or big red X next to it.

Evo N400c Mouse cannot move where I want him to


We had the same problem and with research we found that this notebook has a history of this problem. The solution I found is to buy a USB mouse, plug it in, then go to control panel- mouse- hardware and disable the built in mouse. Then you just restart and use your USB mouse as your primary mouse. As to a solution to fixing the built in hardware, I don't think you can do that.

your laptop should function even without a battery. Remove the battery you just bought and see if only with AC adapter, would your laptop turn on?

If not, then try removing the memory and see using a pencil eraser, clean the contacts of the memory and see if you can power your laptop with only ac
