Does your phone use the Wifi antenna from your laptop? or the receiver? or the software? When your laptop indicates it has a problem with the Wifi connection, it has. What is causing this should be looked after in the laptop, like did you setup the connection correct? Is the setting still correct? or did something change the settings or even reset the settings?
Just check everything about the wireless connection in the laptop to see if you can get it working again. If it was never working before, just setup the connection.

SOURCE: How to tell if my laptop is wifi ready

In your operating system go to control panel and follow the prompts of the network setup wizard ( select wireless setup) and follow the steps of the wizard. But you better have a wireless network type card in your laptop.. Usually there is a little switch on the unit soemwhere that displays an orange or blue light that is the network card.

SOURCE: I have a Lenovo Y430 notebook and it was working

After making sure that the status of network adapters in the device manager showed enabled, I tried using the Fn+F5 key on my keypad. The Fn+F5 key showed my WiFi status as disabled inspite of the Wifi toggle switch on the front of the laptop in the "on" position. So I enabled it and the WiFi led started glowing and I was able to access the internet through WiFi connection

SOURCE: HP Pavillion dv4000 is not able to connect to WiFi

169.254.x.x. is a valid IP address that windows aupplies when it cannot find a DHCP service
A few things to try
This is quite a long reply and may appear very technical - however, have a read through and see what you can do Answer.The following assums that your wireless connection is working and other PCs are able to connect:
There could be quite a lot of reasons you are not getting a connection to the wireless - some common issues

  1. the wireless is switched off
  2. Firewall may be blocking
  3. Remove profile
  4. Check Device working in Device manager
  5. Something else on the PC blocking
so quite a few things to check - so lets start in order
  1. Wireless Switch:- Most laptops have a wireless switch - some use a physical switch, other use a combination of the FN key + one of the F keys to toggle on/off - make sure this is on
  2. Firewall:- The firewall my be blocking access - try to disable the firewall. Often programs like Norton, Mcafee etc, when the subscription runs out can cause issues and need to be uninstalled, to uninstal you may need to use the removal tool available on thier websites. One of the ways to test this, is to do a PING test. Press the "Windows key" {bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the "R key", now in the search box that appears - type "CMD", a black box will now appear on your screen, in that box type the following "ping google.com" if you get 4 replies then you can access the internet and your firewall may well be blocking the access try disabling the firewall.
  3. Remove wireless profiles http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm
  4. Have a look at device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc and see if you have any ? X or ! look under network adapters - click on the + and see if you have the adapter listed It will have a name something with wireless or 802.11 B/G/N included - check if it has any X or ! or ?
  5. safemode:- Try to boot the PC into "safe mode with networking". To do this switch the PC on and now as it starts keep tapping the F8 key untill a menu appears, from that menu choose "safe mode with networking". If you can now connect to the internet,then there is something blocking your access on the PC when it starts normally - post back a comment and if that's the case, We can try doing a "clean boot" and try to identify the startup or process that is causing the issue
A very useful tool to use for wireless issues is xirrus, http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php If you can copy the program onto the PC thats not working and install and run, this test if your adapter is working and also will display all the networks broadcasting in your area. Which will prove the hardware works.

  • If not, then please comment back so I can help some more

I have hp pavillion DV6-6c35dx black screen with caps lock blinking twice to indicate corrupted bios. How do I flash the bios on this laptop?


If that computer wont boot to a screen that you can recognize, it is a brick. When the bios is corrupted and it wont allow the machine to start you cannot access any screens that will allow you to recover. It takes special equipment to flash the BIOS when this happens and most places just replace the whole motherboard because this equipment is not used often by repair shops.

Blue Screen trying to load XP on HP pavillion dv4-1125nr


It should have an error code in there somewhere on the screen where it says it's shutting down.

Type that error code into Google and you'll find an array of answers. There's a bunch of things that can cause the problem you listed, but we don't know which one.
