Dear gentlemen,

Please check BIOS setup if there are choices there to enable or disable built-in webcam devices. Also you need to reinstall the device driver if necessary using the compliment CD driver or installer. Hope this gives you hint.

Best regards,

SOURCE: intermittent internal wireless modem.

There are many reasons that the signal can vary from place to place and can change drastically just inches away.
a few sources for interference are:

  • cordless phones
  • baby monitors
  • basically anything wireless
You see some of the above work at 2.4 ghz frequency and can block and distort data coming from your router to your pc.Luckily there are quick fixes that sometimes work for instance:
  • setting your router to another channel:
You can do this by going into your routers wireless settings and changing the transmit channel from say 1 to 2 and so on and try that for a bit.
How do I get to the router settings you ask? Good question, well its pretty simple but it varies greatly from router to router so you will have to look in your manual that you threw away when you bought it :) or just check on the internet and search for "(make and model) settings" at the product website.

if you'd rather provide the make and model here id be happy to search for you and find out how you can configure your router.
That said my main suggestion is to get an Ethernet wire to that stationary pc, it will surf a whole lot faster unless the wires are a pain. Most home wireless speeds pale in comparison to hooking directly up to that same network.

How to enable bluetooth on my hp pavilion dv7

link to driver if not installed alredy

if driver installed :

Check that your PC has a built-in Bluetooth device by consulting its user guide. If it does not, you'll need to buy an external receiver often referred to as a "dongle" and connect it to a spare USB port.

Ensure that your wireless and Bluetooth receiver is turned on. Touch the antenna symbol next to your PC's volume control. It will turn blue when it's on and amber when it's off.

Go to the "Control Panel" from the start menu and select "HP Wireless Assistant" if you're using XP. You'll need to go via "Network and Internet" if you're running Vista or Windows 7.

Make sure your Bluetooth adapter is enabled. If you get a warning that it's not, click on "Windows Device Manager," right-click on your Bluetooth device and select "Enable."

Go back to the "HP Wireless Assistant" window and press the "Turn on" button next to the Bluetooth icon if it's not already showing as being activated. Your Bluetooth device is now on and you're ready to connect to another enabled unit.

I hav problem activating HP Pavilion Entertainment PC

If you do receive a message saying that your Windows copy is not genuine and is not activated... There is a problem with the driver concerning your hard disk drive. You need to go to the HP website and find the driver for your HDD. Toshiba Satellites will sometimes do the same...

I can not find the switch on my HP Pavilion notebook computer, to

does the manual give any clues on how to activate the wifi ? There's usually a function key (F1 - F12) with a picture of an antenna on it; hold down the Fn key and whatever key had the antenna on it. You should be able to access wireless internet.

I need to know where the wireless switch is on an HP Pavilion ZV5410US laptop computer

Most HP Notebook PCs have wireless devices built-in. To turn on the built-in device, simply press the wireless power button on your PC which will have the universal symbol for Wi-Fi (shown here on the left) and illuminate with a blue light.

Remote internet access

RESTORE YOUR COMPUTER! This just happened to me and i looked up and tried EVERYTHING! Since my wifi button had only stopped working 2 days ago, I restored my computer to 4 days prior because I was told that sometimes without you even knowing you allow stuff to get on your computer whenever you get online which could cause your computer to turn functions off automatically. My wifi button actually stopped working after I went into a mcdonalds with my computer an used their wifi so I think me allowing their wifi onto my computer did something to it because when I took it home the button was just red altogether and it was SOOO frustrating. But as soom as I restored it, my computer came back on and a little window popped up saying "Your wifi is currently off, toggle your wifi key to turn it on/off". I was so happy! The simpliest thing that no one would ever think of.
