Question about HP Elitebook 8530w Mobile Notebook

1 Answer

I had to get a new screen because my LED shattered. The person who replaced the screen missed connecting/wiring that green lit up strip that turns on/off Wi Fi, controls volume, etc. Its for a HP EliteBook 8530w. I need to turn ON my WiFi since it's disabled, but can't use the WiFi button. Now what?

Unfortunately, the only way to solve your problem is to take the laptop back apart and re-connect the wires, and _hope_ that the reason why they didn't get re-connected in the first place wasn't because they were broken when it was disassembled.

Laptop repair is not difficult as long as you _carefully_ follow all the instructions, be very careful how you disconnect the cables, and, probably the hardest part is keeping track of the screws. One way to keep track of the screws is to use an egg carton and write on the carton where the screws came from.

Take pictures before disassembly if you have too.

Here's the HP webpage that tells you in detail how to disassemble and re-assemble your laptop:

Vizio tv power button will not stay lit fades and shuts down in about 10 seconds. No backlights no backlit screen. Vizio mod # e420i-ao. any ideas. trying to check voltages but don't know If I can.


In most of the case, the problem is defective LED back lights strips, the other problem could be a defective main board.

If you have a LED strip tester, check out the LED strip first, if you don't, try a new main board first, if the symptoms are the same, for sure, the problem is LED strip(s).

Hisense 50k22dg should i replace led strips first or power board


I would inspect the power board for mushroomed caps and brunt traces. A edge lit led screen has two ribbon cables coming from the power supply, I would unplug one at a time to see if one side lights up. Both led strips rarely go bad at the small time. The problem is most likely in the power supply.

Hey, i own a husqvarna sm610 and im trying to remove the stock tail light and blinkers and install a new LED tail tidy strip.


Keep things simple and make this much easier. You will need a test light and probe each of the wires and you will have to do each wire while the lights are on, then the brake applied and then the turn signal and you will be in business in short order. Be shure to make all connections secure and use shrink tubing to waterproof the wires.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

Gateway 503gr has no power, the standby light flashes green when I remove power. Tried new PS and the standby LED stays lit. I then tried both new and old PS disconnected from board and shorted...


Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply connections and cpu fan. Install one stick of RAM and connect your monitor. Then try starting up. See if you get any BIOS boot messages. This will tell you that the board and processor are okay.

With what you say you've tried already, I'm thinking you might have a bad processor. Most every other problem would result in some kind of error like POST beep codes or messages on screen. If the system still doesn't boot with the bare minimum parts installed, replace the processor.
