Wireless does not work on asus eee pc 900

What exactly is the problem? Wireless not working is not very descriptive of your problem because there are many things that come into play in order to have wireless.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Screen is flickering like a TV


You can try to reinstall the driver of your Video Card. Navigate to the manufacturer's website, go to Support or Driver Downloads and enter the exact model of your laptop then download the latest driver. Reinstall the driver and reboot the computer. Check if that works. If that didn't help, it is the LCD's hardware failure. Checking the LCD's internal connectors require the help of a certified hardware or laptop technician. You can also try to ask suggestions from the manufacturer support group.

Best Regards

Hi, I have acer acpire, model 5534. wi fi wont connect to wireless network. What can cause this problem thanks


Do you see a wireless or network icon in the lower right of the screen, next to your clock? Can you view a list of available wireless networks?

If so and you can see your laptop trying to make a connection on your screen and it just fails to connect, it's likely you've typed in your wireless key wrong.

If not, it's possible you've hit a wireless button or switch and shut your wireless off. On many laptops, there's a switch on the front or sides of the laptop that'll switch wireless on or off. On others, you'll have to look for a colored Fn (function) key on your keyboard. You may have to hold that Fn key and search for a wireless icon on one of other key's that's the same color (usually blue) as your Fn key.

Unfortunatly, I can't find any good pictures of your laptop to tell you exactly where it is. But let me know if this helps!

My notebook does not start any more. don't know what to do. when turned on, green lights up in from switching on and thats about it. nothing else. i've checked memory and hard disc, seems to be fine. is...

Make sure there is nothing on the screen and there is no activity from the hard drive. Possible cause: 1. Memory failure.
2. Motherboard
3. CPU failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: Test the laptop with an external monitor and confirm that there is no video on the external screen.
If the laptop powers on to a blank black screen, check the laptop memory first. It’s very likely that you have memory related failure.
Try reconnecting the memory module, maybe it’s not making good contact with the slot.
Try moving the memory module into another slot, maybe the first slot failed.
If you have two memory modules installed in your laptop, remove them one by one. One of the memory modules could be bad (it’s very unlikely that both modules failed at the same time). Test the laptop with each module separately, try different slots.
If you have only one memory module installed, try replacing it with a new memory.
If reconnecting, replacing memory modules doesn’t help, most likely this is motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.
CPU failures are very rare but it happens once in a while. From my experience, you can get one or two failed CPUs on a hundred failed motherboards.

HP pavilion laptop dv2120us wireless nic intermittent failure

I think you have a suspect hard drive on your laptop. It is slowly failing. Hopefully you have got the Recovery CD/DVD for it. Not sure what OS you are running. I suppose it will be Vista. You can download disk test utility Seatools from Seagate website and it will give you an indication of the state of your drive. I think this model of HP laptop used a very cheap generic brand disk drive. Best to replace with Seagate or WD of same capacity as your present one. It will be hard to get data back if you do not have backups. Hope this helps.

Wireless switch still red, wireless assistant not available

Two questions:
Q1: Do any other switches/touch buttons work? If not then follow the procedure below:
1. turn off computer 2. Remove battery and power plug 3. hold down the power button for 20 secs 4. reattach battery and power plug 5. Turn on laptop. 6. All buttons will work including the wireless
Q2: Do you see the HP Wireless Assistant icon in your system tray? If not then go to start menu and search for the above.
Once you locate it open the program and check if your installed wireless device is on or turned off. In case of the latter, Turn it on from the action list. Once your device is on the touch button will work.

Wireless network adapter won't turn on

Hi there.
It sounds to me that the Atheros wireless card may have gone bad, in some cases this does happen.
Check in the bios to make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled, apart from that i cannot suggest anything else as you have just about troubleshot everything a PC technician would do before coming to the conclusion that its the hardware which is at fault.
If the machine is still under warranty then please take advantage of that, if not then a reputable PC repair shop will be able to fit a new card in the laptop and they will make sure it works before it comes back to you.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
