Question about HP OmniBook XE3 Notebook
I took my notebook in and had, what was supposed to be, a upgrade to the memory (which I don't think happened- only a microsoft upgrade), a new CD/DVD player installed. I've a SMCW 802.11g Wi-Fi program on here that was working fine until the tech got a hold of it. I took it back to him telling him my CD ROM didn't work nor did my SMC wi-fi program. Still now everything keeps telling me : SMC- I'm told "windows sockets???"... CD/DVD player- I'm told "windows sockets failed initialing". Got any clue what to do?
The modem/lan minipci module is faulty. from there you have that error messages and also from here you can't access your lan and again (guess) you don't have sound. very strange but true.
what you have to do is to remove the lan/modem minipci card (baterry to the right) and everything you be OK.
and if I remember correct the spare part number is: F2300-60914.
if that doesnt work try this:
entered the bios setup utility and changed the settings for the parallel port to simple port ( no ECP no Bi-directional)
this way it saves resources for the mini pci card that reports the conflict
