You just buy a laptop with built wireless card or built in WIFI capability since you will buy a wireless router, that built in modem that you are saying is a modem use for dial up and you do not need that because I believe you have a broadband connection like cable or DSL internet...

Motherboard manual m7a625


The manufacturers of motherboards only provide manuals for mainboards that are produced for the purposes of system building. There is no market for laptop system building since you cannot buy the parts independently. Motherboards for pre-built machines are built to the manufacturers specifications and have customized features in their chipsets and CMOS for the machine being built. You cannot obtain manuals for these motherboards as a stand-alone item.

After 2 years , without warning, i turned the laptop on, from the 'sleep mode' and it would NOT boot-up. It also sounds like the motor shuts off after 3 seconds..Staples and HP says it may be the...


Hi there , yes it is mother board problem. But $399 is really too expensive for 2 years old laptop. I suggest you buy a new updated laptop & take out the HDD from the old laptop. Visit a service center & tell them you want to make that HDD for external using purpose. They will fix it for you & maximum 30 $ they charged for it. So you get a updated laptop & your all old data with external HDD. Now why i suggest you for a new laptop. If you pay 399$ for motherboard then you can use it. But again if you feel some thing wrong in other parts then you go for buy that. Finally when you make a total cost you will see a new laptop prize. Hope you understand my meaning.
Thanks &waiting for your feedback.

Laptop LCD comes on at system startup and goes off


Sounds like you have the Laptop in Presentation Mode. If you look along the top of the numbers you may see some extra icons, maybe in a dark blue. One of these may look like a screen. If you press the Fn key (bottom left) and tap this "Screen Key" you should cycle through the various modes (LCD/LCD+ External/External Only)

Depending on the model, you may have dedicated hardware buttons instead.

Black screen


Depending on what kind of laptop you have, your button may look different. Look at the Function keys (all those keys up at the top that have F's in front of them) and see if there is another colored symbol on any of them. You should find a colored symbol that looks like a rectangular monitor.

Press another key toward the bottom of your keyboard that probably says "Fn" or some other kind of "Function" key - not Alt, Ctrl, or Shift. Hold that Fn key down while you press the first key you found that looks like a monitor. That will change your laptop video output mode between several different modes like: laptop LCD panel only; LCD panel and external monitor; and external monitor only.

The purpose of this is if you wanted to plug another monitor into the back of your laptop, or a projector for a meeting or presentation, etc.

Laptop


Modems are used for dial up connections either to the internet or for faxing. Dial up internet is almost obsolete, faxing is still used with modems, mainly in the business world, but it too will soon be obsolete. I'd say that modems will no longer be a part of any computer with in the next three years.
