My wrless is not going to b turn on on windows 7 nd xp plz give me the sedation nd support for it

Critical battery switches off the wireless network card to preserve power. Motherboard seems to log this status but when re-connecting to mains power the card does not receive power again. Uninstalling the driver and getting Windows to re-install automatically upon re-boot does not work.

Charge up the battery whilst the computer is running. You can charge it to a substantial level, say, above 25%. Disconnect mains power so that your laptop is running on battery only. Set your wireless switch to OFF (this is usually to the left position, away from the orange indicator). Now run your computer down to the critical battery level again (perhaps overnight). In the morning when you press the power button, the 'CHARGE' indicator (looks like a lightning bolt) on the front of the laptop should flash quickly, indicating that there is no charge in the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop's underside. Wait a couple of seconds, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Keeping the battery off the laptop, reconnect mains power. Boot up your PC. When at the Windows desktop and all your startup programs have finished loading, switch your wireless on (to the right position). You should now have a blue light, and wireless should once again be working. You can now re-insert your battery. You might have to setup your wireless network connection again as mine seemed to be 'lost', but at least hopefully the main problem is now fixed

Dell Inspiron 1000 won't turn on. It is always

Well if it is always plugged to the wall then the laptop's power jack is the common problem there. You can have a Computer Technician check it and diagnose it for you. Be careful how much you pay, if that is the problem (i'm pretty sure it has to be) you can shop for the part online (ebay is a good place to find them for around ten bucks) and hand it to the computer guy. Otherwise you may be charged a fortune to get it fixed. Next time, use a power surge between the power adapter and the wall's power outlet.
Here's is a brief explanation of what happens with the power jack. Inside of it there are two or three pieces of metal that look like thick wires and what they do is transfer the current to the laptop. Eventually they wear out and break (common cause is having your laptop plugged to the wall continously exposing it to all sorts of power surges). Hope it helps, good luck.

My nc8000 shuts down after few seconds and starts after power plugged in or battery inserted

Hi Turecki, It's a moderately easy fix for this common issue with HP/Compaq Laptops. Simply go to ebay, purchase an "inverter" board built for a NC8000 laptop can range from $10-$50 just purchase one with a minimum 6 month warranty. Its about a 0.5 inch by 15 inches. Unscrew all of the tiny phillips screws located and hidden behind black rubber covers on the LCD screen. Pop off the plastic LCD cover and replace the inverter board located at the bottom of the LCD (plug & play). Put it all back together and voila...problem fixed.

Have fun and practice some repair skills.
