You also might consider a USB wireless adapter, These can be a lot easier to configure and load drivers. GEEKS.COM has some pretty good ones. I've had issues with some PCMCIA CARDBUS wireless. Depending on how old the system is it may not support the cardbus 2 pcmcia wireless cards. On an old toshiba I used an Advantec usb wireless g with no problems.

You'll need a pcmcia card, that goes in the narrow slot on side of the laptop. it's not built in on this model, according to the specifications..there are loads of good ones out there. too.

How to set sharp pc ax40 laptop bios to boot from usb flash drive?

Sad to say your model "Sharp pc ax40 Series laptop" does not support the "Boot from USB devices" options from the Bios.

It uses the "Floppy Drive 3.5" 1.44 MB floppy - External" ie portable FDD booting options.

Hope it helps.

Dead sharp pc-ax40

You can try reseating the memory and the hard drive if you can get to it, but it sure sounds as though the motherboard is shot.
You can take it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.
