Why does my hp Pavillion ze4900 laptop not have WiFi button on the keyboard or anywhere around the sides.what I am reading here everybody's else's does. Now I can't get Internet.

Ok how to do this using the realtek driver (chip makers support )
RTL8139 only,!!!! as seen in DM and the Red X on for this.step by step (click by click no, )
  1. go to good PC, with web working, google works, ok>? not dead your netwolrk dead PC
  2. Go here.
  3. Click Global line 3 , v5.719, at chip makers page above.
  4. Down load this file and copy it to your USB thumb drive Flash memory stick.,
  5. click on the stick (local explorer) and unzip it on the stick and bingo over 10 files there and 3 folders,
  6. (do a disconnect from usb, properly ) and remove said stick.
  7. leave good PC, walk to Dead PC (means network is dead)
  8. plug in USB memory stick from above into dead pc.
  9. using xp local explorer, go to the USB STICK (E:?)
  10. see 10 files and setup.exe,? run setup.
  11. it runs and the driver is completely loaded. (sigh)
  12. Now ethernet works, if lucky, keep in mind the HP support is dead this old PC. and some things can be hard to fix lacking that. (that is why its better to upgrade)
I cant see your device manager page, for networks, but the factory
service manual states this PC has the 8139 chip, if yes, then the above should work.

XP and above has a built in unzip engine. (that all PC need)
right click the zip file and pick extract.
be sure to extract all files there not just 1. to the USB thumb drive.
what I do is make a folder on the usb drive called
RTL8139 , then put the zip there and the expand, (unzip)
it there, over 10 files and 3 folders. and find the setup.exe.

better is to have 7zip free program loaded on all PC.

with this loaded, you right click zip and pick extract-ALL.
or even cruise inside the archive, and tons more.
7zip is KING.

Shut down hp pavillion desk top

This is an XP machine, which is no longer supported. I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and Operating Sysytem. If the machine won't boot, and you have important files on it, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the hard drive, and copy any important files to another machine. Good luck.

Unfortunatly, hard drives don't last very long after they have been dropped. You will need to get a new hard drive installed and then re-install your operating system of choice. If in the town you live in, there is a Data Doctor, they may be able to restore any lost files from the now dead drive. Typically, a restoration can take upto 3 weeks, depending if it can be brought back from the dead.

Put the laptop in the freezer for a couple hours. i heard that can temporarily fix a problem with a Hard Drive. If it works then quickly back up the Hard Drive and get a new one and upload everything onto that one. Caution: i dont know any side effects of freezing the laptop so freeze it at your own risk.
