Re: pc card slots

Have you tested the card in another laptop to be sure that its working? You shouldnt need updated drivers for it. Have used new card on 10 year old laptops before and they worked fine. Are you sure that the slot is functional?

There is a slot for inserting SIM card under the battery on my inspiron 15r n5010. I want to know how to set up drivers/firmware and software to set up internet access via 3G network using a sim inserted...

The SIM card holder is there to support an OPTIONAL 3G wireless broadband card: it is not a standard feature and setup will depend on the brand of internal 3G broadband card that is installed.

Compatible internal 3G mini-card may be quite expensive and using an external device (such as Pocket Wifi which is a 'MIFI' device which can conveniently be connected to your PC/Laptop via a secure Wifi connection) might be a better alternative.

Hope it helps.

My Lifebook C2340 won't recognize it's own DVD-ROM. When I set the CD in the BIOS, it goes back to "None". It doesn't show up in My Computer. I've cleaned the contacts and tried another DVD. Still won't...

Does it show the device in the BIOS? If not then there could be a problem with the motherboard hardware. If it is not showing up in the BIOS then I would first verify that the power connector for the drive has voltage. Also verify that the slave/master jumpers are correct if the drive has any. You could also try downloading the BIOS update from Fujitsu and see if after updating the BIOS it brings the cd-rom drive detection back. If the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows is not then the problem could be with the Windows drivers or installation. You could try going into the control panel for windows and use the "detect new hardware function" and see if Windows detects the drive.

Vaio: switch on the wireless LAN = blue screen and restart!

This can be a driver issue.

I would go to the manufacturer website and retrieve the most updated driver for your wireless card.

Then, go to device manager
Right-click on "My Computer" -> Click on Manager --> click on Device Manager

And uninstall the wireless card. For example, my wireless card name is
INTEL/Pro Wireless 3945ABG Network

After you do that, go to Control Panel and click on 'Add Hardware". Click on "Next" and it should detect your hardware.

After it detects the wireless card, point it to the most updated drivers that you downloaded.

See if that works.

Try uninstalling your pcmcia drive in device manager and then restart the laptop and let windows reinstall it. With the pci wifi card out of the slot of course. Then once the laptop is started back up and the slot is reinstalled by windows reinsert your wifi card and reload the proper driver.
Good Luck.

I have a secondhand 5 series lifebook how do i turn on and setup the wireless facility for internet access

Have you got your own wireless router and you are trying to connect to it?
To connect to the Internet, you need to have your own wireless router cable or DSL modem that is connected to an Internet Service Provider of your choice.
Most Internet Service Providers can supply the wireless router and a broadband plan that suits your needs. Beware some providers will slug you with excess charges once you exceed your download limit.
Get back to me with details of the Wireless Router and the wireless card in your Fitjitsu laptop and I can advise you how to configure your system to secure your wireless network.

Need instructions how to install wireless card

If you are installing an external wireless card, there should be a set of instructions that came with the card. Those should be your guidelines.
If you got one from a friend/neighbor, follow these steps:
1) Insert the card into the PCMIA slot 2) Let the computer recognize there is a new hardware.
3) download the driver from the cd, or go to its manufacturer's website to download the driver for the wireless card. If it is Linksys, go to, belkin,, etc.
After that, the card and windows should automatically detect your network settings, and you can enjoy the internet from there

Power jack removal and installation

most laptops use a combination of screws and tab/slots clamping to keep the clam shell halves together. The tabs fit carefully into the mating slots, so it is up to you to find them. Carefully press in on the sides where the clam shell halves mate and find locations where it is more difficult to press inward. This area will be a place where to find a tab/slot mate.
