    it's the switch that's not turning on the wireless mode. I get internet connectiion when I connect the cat 5 line. How can I get this repaired? Is it something I can do? If I don't over solder?

  • presley201 Jun 19, 2009

    my zip code is 60440, you suggested that a solder poin on the main board is probably broken loose. H0w do I get that repaired?

Hi

So the laptop was dropped and now the wireless switch doesn't work anymore? the switch is in most laptops directly soldered to the mainboard. if the switch is damaged or broken it would need to be replaced by a professional, too much heat on the motherboard will separate and possibly ruin the whole laptop motherboard.

Did I get that correctly? its a switch and the wireless turns off and on from it, as far as I know you can't turn on the wireless if the switch is broken.

    if you decide to replace the switch yourself, do it at your own risk, use a 25W solder iron or lower. if you heat the motherboard too much the layers may start to separate and after that if it goes too far the whole board will be ruined.

    I would recommend finding someone who has experience in soldering laptop motherboards without messing them up.

    Well, I don't appriciate being reposted. Hopefully someone else will provide you with valid advice, there are alot of useless "experts" on this website.

  • Ekse Jun 19, 2009

    Hi,

    not a problem on the repost, don't worry about it.

    So you do have warranty or repair service that you can get on the laptop?

If u droppped the card then i strongly suggest you replace it, that is most likely the problem, u can also check the network connection by going to control panel and then click "Internet and network connections", if the connection is there you will see it in the window, you can click on it and select repair network connection and see if that helps.

You could send the laptop in for repair but it could be quite pricey, it sounds like the LCD is toast. If your keypad still works using an external monitor then you won't have to replace that.
