Mini PCI WIFI Kepps sytem from booting

I have this crazy problem with my WIFI adapter. Its Brand New agere Mini-PCI PA3171U-1MPC Its the same model that My Laptop came with. The Problem is when I install it into the Mini-PCI slot My Laptop Will not Boot, Post Or anything. The Only thing That happens Is the power light turns on.. And with this model of laptop the only option i have for going through bios settings and that is done through Toshiba HW Utility In Windows. And there aren't many options in there for anything. I have tried almost everything. including using a 3rd party program to clear my cmos.. Help would be greatly appreciated..

Ok, since you posted that it's the same model that your laptop came with, I will assume that the original had a problem and you are replacing it. If that's true, your problem may not have been with the adapter or the newly installed PCI Mini WiFi adapter is defective (this happens more often than one would think). Try another adapter if you can.
Good luck.

I need pa3758u-1mpc wireless driver.. any help?


Maybe you don't. In control panel go to Device Manager. Click on the little arrow next to Network adapters. Right click the adapter and uninstall it. (don't delete drivers if asked) Then re start your computer & see if that repairs the bad driver.
If that doesn't fix it,(YOU MUST USE SOME WAY TO GET ON THE INTERNET) (plug in to your router or use a portable usb wifi adapter) repeat the same steps & rt click the adapter & Update driver & select Search automatically (not find on this computer) . It goes on line to Microsoft & it searches it's driver base & finds the proper driver & installs it. If it either finds a better driver or says you have the correct driver & still doesn't work you have a physical problem with the wifi adapter on the mother board. then you need to use a USB wifi adapter like this one. rt click & open in a new tab to view

The easiest thing to do would be to get the drivers from the support site of the brand of laptop you have. Most manufactures keep a list of the models they sell and inside that have drivers for every device that was used in that model. That would be my suggestion.
Best of luck to you!

My wireless has gone capoot.


Most desktop computers are not by default wifi capable (barring a few models that include an internal USB wifi adapter in the case.) If you have added wifi to the unit by installing an internal PCI-Card Wifi adapter or plugged in a USB Wifi adapter into one of your USB ports then that capability will be added. As far as a Keyboard command to activate the Wifi, that is usually dependent on the Computer and/or the brand and model of the adapter installed. What brand of Computer and model are you having problems with? If the Wifi was added after it was purchased, what brand and model of adapter are you using?

Mini-PCI WIFI in Satellite 5205-S703


Check out if you are inserting it properly into its slot. That that can be one reason.

another thing you can do try is to try to put in after you have already started the computer and you in windows.
