Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
I also need help connecting toshiba a25-s207 to wireless wifi, refurbished, it doesnt show a list of available network s or anything . running Windows XP Home Edition HELP READ HUNDREDS OF FORUMS NO PROGRESS :(
This could be caused my a multitude of things. 1st, examine the laptop and make sure there isn't a physical hardware switch to turn the wifi on and off. 2nd, click start and click control panel and then click system, then device manager; expand the + and make sure that the wireless adapter is being recognized by windows. if it's not you may want to visit the toshiba website and download the appropriate drivers. If it is being recognized make sure it's not disabled. 3rd, Make sure there isn't a function key to turn the wifi off and on, usually fcn f8 i believe. If none of that is the issue, reboot the laptop and tap whatever key it says to enter bios or setup. once you are in that screen look for the area where it says 'onboard devices' and make sure that the wireless nic is enabled. good luck!

You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Does it restart and then ask to go into windows safe mode, things like that. If so here something to try.
I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!
Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as well call it at work anyways.
Dels are known for this.
let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.
Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?
You will need one.
What you do is,
1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,
2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.
3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.
4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Pres " R" for repair.
It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.
5: once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "
6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finishand go back to C:/
Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.
you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.
Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.
WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.
For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.
Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.
What you did was re-installed those windows files.
Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.
This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.
You can help other now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)
Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

I had this same problem sometime ago and I first reversed my last action and I still did not get back my wireles. So out of desperation I backed up my files and made use of the recovery disk that came with my laptop, Although I had to wait through the process of deleting the contents of my computer first, after the operating system was reinstalled, to my suprise my wireless connection was initialised and it started working. All I had to do after that`was to point it to the right wireless network to work with. I hope this solves your problem Sahaja.

SOURCE: sp3 and wpa2psk wont install
Particularly I think the problem is not in Wi-Fi connection for your laptop, but the configuration of your router, try using wpa security checks and only connection, besides if you give before you upgrade the service pack, the connection works properly. Additionally if you give before you upgrade the service pack, the connection works properly.
