Sounds like the auditorium is a metal building. Wifi reception is very poor through metal, so you probably cannot use the laptop inside.

    Metal or concrete, it still sounds like you are not getting a good signal. I have several laptops myself, and there is definately a difference in how good they pick up a signal. One even shows a low signal in the same room as the wifi router, another one picks the same signal up by the barn, through 2 walls, and 300 feet. So it looks like possibly your laptop simply wll not pick up the signal through the wall(s).

When i switch on my hp probook 4420s it cannot load the operating system but keeps restarting


Try going to bios by pressing del while starting. Check the boot sequence if your HDD is on the list and selected as primary. You can also try HP recovery by pressing F11 key as soon as you power on the laptop.

When i switch on my hp 4420s laptop it display gray screen but when i attached it with external monitor the monitor works fine but lcd of laptop does not show any thing


Ahhh..the HP problem. This is a common problem and one that I am currently experiencing. The long and short of it is you will need a new motherboard or a new computer unless you are comfortable digging into this. I have two HPs with this problem and I am currently doing a reflow on this. I will keep you posted on how it turns out if you keep this thread going.

My function keys of hp probook 4420s is not working


You have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of your keyboard then hit the volume or brightness keys. Notice that the volume and brightness keys are the same color as the FN function key. That means you have to press and hold the FN key while you hit the volume or brightness key.

AC adapter fine also battary fine but HP 4420s dont charging


If that is true the charging circuits on the motherboard will be the problem, "a rare situation" so long as the laptop powers up using the adapter and the charging voltages are missing in the computer terminal where the battery plugs in then this would apply.

Go to HP's site, look to see if there is any documentation on taking the laptop apart, remove the battery, take it apart, and remove the watch battery found within. Keep it out for a few minutes, put it back, reassemble, and you're good to go.

I purchased a brand new HP Probook 4420s two day before, today I get a problem on that. My screen get off. I didn't show anything. please help me what to do..........


Hi,

I think you can try this step and see if its going to turn on.

1. Remove the battery and Unplug the AC power.
2. Press and Hold the power button for 1 minute.
3. Put it all back.
4. Check if the machine would turn on.

If it doesn't work means there is a hardware problem on the machine. I recommend to call the manufacturer since that's a brand new machine.

Hope it helps. Thank you for choosing FixYa.
