STEVELAMBERT, Double check your wifi switch position by taking a small flat head screw driver, and pop it loose and see if the post to the wifi switch is broken, if not properly reseat the wifi switch over the post. If that does not correct the issue, open the memory cover and reseat your wifi card.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I recommend that you state your motherboard make/model; usually drivers depend on that and on your operating system.
You may download drivers (usually) from either your System manufacturer's website or/and your motherboard manufacturer's website.
If the processor is overheating, check the fan to make sure it is turning freely but does not have sloppy bearings. Make sure the fins are clean. If these are OK, replace the thermal transfer compound between the processor and the heat sink. If the compound is too thick or is dried up and hardened, it will not transfer heat efficiently. I get the best results with a thin layer of silver-based compound - just barely enough to cover the chip evenly. Be sure to clean both the heat sink and processor thoroughly before applying the new compound. Use isopropyl alcohol for cleaning if necessary.
dear alton, its common problem with your processor heat and its sensor in your motherboard. the problem is at the cooling system witch is your fan. cooling system can work properly only if 1. your fan is working.(I'm sure its) 2. the aluminium aloy (heat sink) is capable to transferring heat from your processor (i recommend the original one) 3. thermal paste to joining the surface processor to aluminium aloy (heat sink) is a good grade. 4. the surface of your aluminium aloy (heatsink) is smooth.

Theres not enough information to properly tell you. But I would start with looking to see if your fan turns on when you turn on the computer. If the fan does not turn on then your CPU overheats and the computer will shut itself off. To try and fix this, clean out the fan (hair or anything around the fan motor can prevent it from turning).
Yes, and this is to promote better thermal transfer between components.
According to studies: Thermal grease is primarily used in the electronics and computer industries to assist a heat sink to draw heat away from a semiconductor component such as an integrated circuit or transistor.
!!!Warning!!! Over time, some thermal greases may dry out, have reduced heat
transferring capabilities, set like glue and make it difficult to remove
the heat sink. If too much force is applied the processor may be
damaged. Heating the grease by turning the processor on for a short
period often softens the adhesion. It is recommended that thermal grease
be re-applied with each removal of the heat sink.
I hope it helped you. Rate for this information will greatly be appreciated. Thank you!
see do one thing check the cpu fan whether it is working properly and is not producing any noise if it is then probably you need to replace your cpu fan with a new one also makke sure that your power supply fan and chasis fan is working as excess heat gets generated in the system they remove it
to change the cpu fan
1.see it will depend on what kind of cpu socket you have pin or pinless
for pin-open the plastic clamp on the fan
for pinless -unscrew the heatsink
2.remove the heatsink and replace it it will be much better if you replace the full heat sink with a new one .also don't forget to put thermal grease compound for effivient heat transfer in between the cpu and the heat sink contact generally these days heat sinks come with pre-applied thermal componds but still it is recomended to apply it firmly over the cpu before installing the heat sink on it
3.if you wish to install the old heatsink by just replacing the top fan then replace the fan and rub the bottom of the heat sink with a sand paper to make it even and free from dust and oxide apply thermal compond and install it on the processor .plug bak the cpu fan header cable .
start your system it will stop overheating..
The processor is over heating. I have a p-35 s6053 and it used to do the same thing until I fixed it.
Do the fans come on or anything when you first try to turn it on ??????
I'd bet the fans come on strong and then after about 5-60 seconds it just shuts off. let me know if i'm right and I can tell you how to fix it,
is it in warranty..?? if not.. do it if u r a professional..
check the following: 1) the cmos battery (above +3v)..replace with a standby n see.. 2) remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause
jam/short circuitry/excess resistace n many more..resulting an increase
in heat.. 3) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink
Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market)
between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it
tightly in position.. 4) the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps
viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v (yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg
& grey~sb); -12v (blue); -5v(white); +3.3v(orange).. the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic', or
pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective
protector-transformer/resistance(esp 4.7k)/mosfet.. 5) ur main/mother board..see with a debug
card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(esp above
1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie
around atx connector....
..plz give higher priority to step3 & 4 (as listed above) CAREFULLY..
