Re: broke lcd screen on laptop; need update to networked...
If I understand correctly, you need to update your laptop??
Or get some files off it??
Anyway, connect an external monitor to your laptop and you can work on it that way. You may need to push a special function key to switch monitors. Check your keyboard.
In any case, connect the external monitor and turn it on, then power up the laptop.

Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop. Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot. Observations: ; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts. ; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode. ; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area. ; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues. Solution: Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.
Notes of caution: ; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep. ; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS. ; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.
This is a common problem with Linux Lumpus OS and is apparently caused by an update.
Right click on the desktop and then scroll down to Network, then gftp.
On the left hand pane, click on the .gconf folder - system- networking-
connections. delete all instances of network(folder 1,2 &3) and
Once restarted the network should reconfigure itself and allow you to grt on the net and open the network center.
try system restore to a point before you started getting blue screen.you may have got an update that conflicks with your networking.My sister had this problem with her desktop so I reformatted and reloaded the OS and it happened again when it got to a "D_LINK" update so I hid the update.She hasnt had any problems since then,that was about 8 months ago.
