I have 51% on my laptop connection to a wireless source and it shuts off my computer and locks it up. It is a card that slides into the side of my Dell. Do they lose their strength after time?

I'm having problem connecting to the wirless internet on dell lataqitude e5500. The wireless is on but im unable to connect to any wirlesss networks? Can this problem be solved?


If you are using a firewall disable it there is a wireless toggle switch on the side of your laptop. It slides back and forth to turn your wireless card on and off. It has a little wireless symbol next to it, and you should NOT see red. If you see red showing, it means that the wireless adapter is turned off. Slide the adapter to the ON position, and then try to repair your wireless connection. Hope this helps

Cant find how to connect to a wireless network with my cf-51


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Where is the CMOS battery on the HP G60-235DX? How do I remove it? Also, what type (model #) of CMOS battery does this laptop have?


Shut down your laptop and disconnect all power sources. Turn the laptop over and lay it face down.

Remove the screws that secure the hard drive cover and remove the cover. Take out the remaining screws that secure the hard drive to remove it.

Locate the RAM (random access memory) and wireless card cover. This is often located in the center of the laptop. Remove the retaining screws and take off the cover.

Remove the RAM module by spreading the retaining latches on each side. Tilt the RAM module at an angle and slide it out of its compartment.

Disconnect the cables from the wireless card and remove the screws that secure the wireless card to the motherboard. Remove the wireless card from the laptop.

Locate the CMOS battery. It is about the size of a coin and is secured by a clip. Unclip the CMOS battery and remove it from its compartment. Insert the new one and reassemble the laptop.

Here's a link to a video that shows you how to do it too. http://www.ehow.com/video_4984398_change-laptop-battery.html Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate.

My laptop quit working cant get no connections through router


First; Does your laptop see any wireless connections? If no wireless connections are showing up, your wireless card could be off. Depending what type of Computer you have, it could be a slide switch in front, if its dell, you can push Fn and F2, If you do see wireless connections, and just cant connect,. try shutting down your Computer, unplugging your Modem, and Router. Restart, then see if you can connect. Wireless has so many issues, If you still can't connect, let me know and I will give your more information. Hope this helps.

Do i need a pc card for my wireless connection i have an acer 5050


Hi,

No the laptop has an in-built wireless card so there's no need for an add-on.
The switch is a slide switch which is at the very front of the laptop on the left hand side of the headphone and microphone jack.
When you slide the switch a LED will come on.

What wires are you referring to that came with the laptop?? what do they look like?

You only use your modem if you're planning in using DIAL-UP for your internet connection... Otherwise you'll never need it..Your modem port is the one that fits a telephone cord plug... the wider one that looks similar is your Ethernet port - which is used for either dsl or ethernet/cable connection...

Bluetooth is a means of connectiong perifferals to your laptop such as a cell phone, a PDA, a headset....etc.... Its a short range wireless connection method..

Wifi is your wireless connection wireless Wan is Wide Area Network.. mainly used for business and Companies that have servers overseas and such..
Wifi Wireless LAN is local Area Network... Which is what you would be considered if you use Wireless to connect to internet..

the LCD panel is referring to the Screen of your laptop.. The LCD Panel is made up of Layers Of Films, A Backlight Panel, LCD Bulb, and A Glass Digitized Panel

You turn off the Power Either By Holding Down Your Power Button until it completely shuts down, or shut it down through windows... START/Shut Down

Storage media refers to any media capable of storing data... Such as a secondary hard drive, A Media Card, A Thumb Drive A Flash Drive A Camera Memory card... etc....

Doubtful that you have a floppy drive on that laptop... But if you do, the standard 1.44 Floppy Disk Works
