Emachines E627 Laptop I use it only in Wifi mode

Emachines E627 Laptop I use it only in Wifi mode to get on the internet. Today the wireless won't work. It only comes up in Ethernet Cable mode. I tried pushing the wireless button several times and it only displays wireless off. It won't turn it on. I tried restarting the computer several times which usually clears it and starts in wireless mode again but to no avail. I tried goiing in seven ways to sunday to troubleshoot and find a way to turn it on in the networking and device manager and could not find anything to adjust it with. The device manager just says there is an Altheros card there with options to turn it off, none to turn it on. It all goes around in circles and none of it accomplished anything with typical Windows brainiac illogic! I have had problems with it before going into Ethertnet cable mode only even though the button switch was on, but if I restarted the computer that would usually start it in wifi mode again Can anyone tell me how to get the wifi mode turned back on?

SOURCE: Can't turn on wifi

you should have ACER Empower installed, so check that the wireless adapter is enabled, or press F2 on start up and look in the bios for the onboard wireless adapter and see if its enabled. If non of the above make any difference look in control panel>system>device manager>hardwre tab and look down the list for an exclamation mark, if you find one then the driver for the wireless is not installed, hence showing no device. If that does not work either then there is a possibilty that the wireless card is faulty.

SOURCE: HP wireless problem

When you look at the properties for your wireless adapeter, does it say enabled?
On most laptops you'll have a key that has Fn on it. This is your function key. Hold it down, and look for a key that has what looks like a little radio transmission tower on it. Press that key (while holding the Fn key), and see if you get a pop up stating that your wireless is enabled or disabled (usually it pops up with the no symbol through it).
Try this a couple of times, with a few minutes inbetween to see if you can get it to reenable again.

SOURCE: laptop got stucked up when connected thru network cable

I have had problems myself with wifi and vista causing my laptop to restart I think it's due to a recent update, try using no security on your wifi connection and see if you get the same problem. On my own laptop I had to remove the wap key and use mac address filtering instead due to this problem. Please let me know the results.

SOURCE: HP DV9000 Wireless Card Not Working

this is not a solution, but it isn't helpless info either like "push the button all the way".. the thing with our laptops (dv9000) it's that our chipset, nVidia, it is often too hot for the motherboard, that makes something melt in it or something and stop working, unless you can get it fixed before everything else stop working you should get that fixed PRONTO. it's around $150,00 or call tech support cause i was told that some of this problems are being fixed by HP dependig on the purchase date .. right now i'm using a wireless internet d-link pendrive. try to get that fixed cause next thing it's going to stop working it's goig to be the entire motherboard.. and we don't want that to happen.. right?

Emachine e627 won't bootup


You're probably going to have to get someone to physically look at this for you. eMachines are notorious for having trouble sometimes. However, since you haven't described exactly what it DOES and DOES NOT do, it's hard to tell. Good luck! :)

Emachines E627 laptop won't turn on, but the power button is blue.


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

I can not get on to the internet at home i have a wireless connection and it was al working fine up untill i wiped my computer clean and reinstalled windows 7 could you please help me my connection is fine...


Hi,

Since you re-programmed your laptop, you need to install the driver for wireless LAN. You mentioned that you're using Win 7 now so you need to find a driver that is compatible with emachines and Win 7. But you can try to download the driver fromm emachines' website:

http://support.emachines.com/em/driver/nb/e725.html

Hope it helps.

Thanks!

I Have an Emachine E627 Laptop and I'd like to use my webcam


I have an emachines e627 and it has a webcam, because there are different models of the emachines e627. Most likely you have an emachines e627-5583, that model has a webcam. If you are trying to use your webcam there is a program that is built in called just go to "C:\Windows\Video Web Camera.exe". I hope this works for you
;)
