No sim card installed

The SIM tray near the battery allows you to connect to Internet or Dial. Sometime the Laptop/Netbook doesn't allow you to access your laptop/netbook. I suggest reseting your laptop will help you.

HP pavilion entertainment laptop monitor will not come on. Laptop making sounds like it is downloading something but no disc in tray, not connected to internet.

Your computer is becoming way too hot and the soder between your graphic card and monitor is melting. You need to get your computer opened and reheat your graphic card ( I usually use a heat gun.) Make sure you do not heat it too much as you could screw up your graphic card. Once it is done, just hook the battery, ram, powering unit and hook-up your screen to see if your screen works. If it works then you need to place 2 copper shims between the heat sink contact points with your processor and graphic card to keep everything at a normal temperature. Then reassemble your computer.

Why should i bring a laptop to the woods? like, whats a good reaons?

Laptop is good to bring with you since this is portable. However, if you bring that in the woods, there are advantages and disadvantages that you have to consider. First, the advantages, you can do your assignment while in camping. If you want to combat boredom, you can play games installed in your laptop. If you have usb modem, you can connect to the internet, and if you are lost, you can contact your parents or anyone who can help u, police, forest ranger and the like. You can easily upload pictures when you do picture taking in the woods. Second, the disadvantages, since it is a delicate electronic device, you should handle it with care, laptop is also a hot stuff for a thief, laptop can be damaged by rain and water spills. I mean those are some, but it depends on your judgment of course. I just hope my infos help u in a way.

I would like to connect my laptop to the internet is there a coax cord for that

There are a few ways to connect a laptop to the internet. First, there's hard-line (such as a modem cord, or phone-cable) and with a laptop, that's it unless you have a wireless card. I do believe your model ( has a wireless card, but as you can see there are MANY versions of the 2200! For the most part, your particular exact model won't matter.

If you have wireless somewhere, all you need is the access codes if there is security on the wireless networks.
If you don't have wireless, and don't have internet service at the place you wish to connect at (such as your home) and have not set that up yet, you have a few options
1) Get internet at that place (such as your house; you'll call and they'll come install it, and usually rent or sell you a modem of some kind. The sales reps usually can explain what they offer and tell you what would work best).
2) Call a cell phone company and see if they offer a service of the same kind, either at the house OR via a phone/your current phone service (etc). Often this entails a cable from your laptop to the phone, or a SIM card in the laptop, or a PCMCIA card (check ebay for these, before you buy into a plan, some might be outdated so get informed).
3) Dig around; there's tools out there that one can use to make a wireless PCMCIA or express card or USB wireless device that can uplink to a satelite (usually this is more expensive). Also youtube might have some information on how to get free internet.

You will need to get internet either in a public "wifi hotspot" (often free at public libraries or coffee shops in the USA), or via a hardware line to your residence.

There isn't a way to plug a laptop in directly to the internet at a residence without some kind of modem, though you CAN often use the telephone lines directly into a PC to use software for faxing and telephone stuff.

good luck!

How do u hook up ps3 online usin broadband card and laptop

Hi, The PS3 has a built in wireless card. You need a broadband internet connection& a wireless router for it to work this way.

What hardware do you have? You wont be able to connect the PS3 to the internet if you only have a laptop with a wireless broadband card. this is to be used for one PC/laptop at a time. Sorry

you could query this with Verizon though i am sure they would agree, that it is to be used for one PC/laptop to access the internet.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.

that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.
