On the ASUS B53E laptop, in the slot were the mini WLAN wifi card goes can you a longer WLAN card in the empty slot horizontal from it and is it hard to redirect the wifi antanes to that area without...

You need to make sure the card is compatible with your laptop, and that it fits. If you have a card that fits these conditions then fit it and install the drivers. But the card must go in the correct slot.

Computer Crashes and Electrolytic Capacitors

Electrolytic Capacitors are something to keep note of when troubleshooting computers that crash. Symptoms can be: Will not boot, have distorted or no video, randomly shut off or on, distorted or no audio, or just do random and crazy things. Electrolytic capacitors can be found on a lot of electronic circuit boards (motherboards, video cards, sounds cards, power supply boards, network cards, etc). They look like a long cylinder with a stripe down one side indicating the negative polarity lead.

When looking for bad capacitors always check the motherboard first. The motherboard will typically have electrolytic capacitors around the processor. You then want to look at the card directly involved with the failure. If everything still looks good, then it can also be in the power supply. With general symptoms and where to look: Issues with powering on and off (motherboard and power supply), issues with video (motherboard and video card), issues with sound (motherboard and sound card), and etc.

Some general tips on recognizing a bad capacitor is looking at the top and bottom. The top should be flat, so if you see it bulging out, then it's bad. You also want to look the tops and bottoms over for any brownish substance leaking out. This substance is the electrolytic part of the capacitor and it can do damage to circuit boards. It can eat through traces, solder pads, through holes and cause opens that can't be fixed. Any time you see this on a circuit board, look it over very closely for damage after you remove the capacitor and clean the electrolytic off. I just use rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip to remove electrolytic from a circuit board. Some manufactures use glue, epoxy, or silicon on parts to bond it to the motherboard. Don't confuse glue for a leaky capacitor. That stuff should be hard and not clean off with rubbing alcohol.

Electrolytic capacitors are usually easy to replace using a soldering iron, solder wick, solder, and side cutters. Make sure you put the new capacitor in with the stripe on the same side as the one you took out. If you don't, it could explode. Always wear safety glasses!

I have lost the sound driver after reinstalling xp

Make sure you go to Microsoft's web site to update your files. You can use Windows update from the start menu. If that does not fix it then you need to do one of two things.

1. Go to the Add Hardware option in Control Panel and let it search the internet for the correct drivers.

2. Determine what type of sound card or chipset you have and do a search for them online. Usually very easy to find and there are several free sites to use if you cannot get them from the manufacturer's website.

Ideq graphic card

The 200N has,
Nvidia Nforce chipset
Nvidia Geforce 4 mx integrated graphics with dual output

But I'll need to know your model # to get a better idea.

Alternatively, you could just open the thing up and look. If the video card is in the video card slot, you could just read the model #, etc.

If it's integrated, then look at the motherboard for a model #, etc and let us know. Those are fairly easy to find, and sometimes come bundled with the chipset drivers already.

Let me know!

Wireless network is locked asus eee pc 4gsurf. On Wireless Networks - Visible Access points (window) at the left hand side of Netwok name a picture of a locked lock appears. How can I unlock the lock.

When you see those locks it means the wireless connection is a secured connection. You must have the access code to connect to this network. If you see a network without the lock, you can access it without a code. Good luck.

What is it? And what does it do?

Hi there.
The MSI Portable Data Terminal hand held scan device was used in the early eighties lol, it was one of the first infrared things used in stores and shops and they used the pen to scan the bar code.
The RJ-45 socket was used to download the data to a computer, if you got the software then it could be worth a few quid/bucks as it probably will still read lol.
Sorry for laughing i have not seen one of them for ages!!.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

We need to print from wireless laptop .help please


I am assuming that:
1. There is installed a shared printer in one of the other computers in your network; or
2. The shared printer is connected to a Wireless USB Printer Server;
3. The laptop can connect to the network and is authorized to access/use shared resources.

Procedure would be identical to installing a printer. Follow on screen instructions. Click on Start, Printers & Faxes, Add a Printer, Next, tick "A network printer....", tick "Browse for a printer", Next, Select printer choice, Next, OK, make default, print test page. It might take a bit of time while drivers are copied from the printer server to your laptop. In some printer that is directly connected to the network, you need to pop in the CD that came with that printer and install. Thereafter, you need to change the port setting in the Printer Properties to TCP/IP and point to the assigned IP address of the printer.

Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post gain how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
