Try downloading and installing the LAN driver from here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs

If you cannot access the internet on your Studio laptop, then save the driver to a flash drive on a different computer and transfer it over to your laptop.

My Wi-Fi isn't working isn't working, no matter what I try or do it is not getting any access points, what could be the problem?


Boot to F8 then select Last known good configuration. If no fix then boot back to F8 then safe mode then system restore from the time everything was working fine.

If all no fix do the following:

Check if your laptop can see other network aside from your home network.
If your laptop cannot see any network check if the wifi or wireless switch is turned on.
If the wifi or wireless switch is on then uninstall / reinstall the wlan or wifi driver.

Hi

You could try to go to your network area and check that it has not been disabled somehow

or try a system restore back to when you think it was working ok

good luck

My wireless light won't light up when the switch is on.


Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

One of the first things I would recommend is a system restore. This means restoring the computer (rolling it back) to a date when the wireless worked properly.

You can do this by going to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and clicking on system restore.

Choose a date when it worked properly.

Follow the instructions to achieve a succesful restore.

If this doesn't work, then it is a hardware issue and will need to be checked by a technician.

I can recommend an alternative to paying tech fees.

You can go to an electronics store and purchase a wireless adaptor for about $49.99. These fit in the USB and would be an alternative solution.

Computer goes in to sleep/ hibernate mode and I can not wake it up without shutting it off, and restarting


Hi,
If we are talking "hibernate", then that's what the computer does - it saves the whole memory contents on the hard disk and shuts down. You then have to power it up and it boots like always on power up, but instead of loading the system the usual way, it reads the hibernation file and restores the state in which it was when hibernated.
"Sleep" or "standby" mode is different - the system stops execution of all the running programs, switches the processor into low-speed, low-power mode, executing only the basic functions of waiting for wake-up signal. Depending on machine and settings, it will be woken up by keyboard event, system event (like laptop battery running out - time to hibernate), network activity, or the power switch.
It should wake up when the Fn key on keyboard is pressed, the lid is lfted up (if it was closed of course), or when you momentarily press the power button. If it does not, then something is wrong with your ACPI/Power Management setup, and/or there are some drivers missing or corrupt. You can try going to IBM/Lenovo website and looking for updated system drivers for your model.

Sounds like either you battery is low or defective or your device is set on a very fast sleep mode. The screen goes blank because it is set to go to sleep after 1 second. Go to menu and look for settings for the sleep mode

WLAN device driver loading Issue


Sounds like the device driver to the wireless card is corrupt. Click on start>right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab then Device manager. Click on the "+" sign next to your wireless Network adapter. Then right-click on your network adapter, click on Update driver. The system will automatically look for the new driver and download it. If there is no new driver then go to the manufactureres website. All of the drivers are there. Find your computer and download the driver.

WLAN device driver loading Issue


Greetings,
I beleive you have explained the concern well except for the OS that you use. We have to understand that WLAN is a windows feature. You can try for command prompt by using commands in the netsh wlan context for Windows Vista if you use one and this will help. Else contact.

Regards,

Wireless Connection failed


Did you make any hardware or software changes? You don't say.

Try seeing if your wireless radio is turned on. Most laptops have some kind of switch or Fn key combination that will turn off the wireless networking radio to save power. You might have inadvertently shut it off.

On the other hand, if it's a software thing and it only happened today, try using System Restore in Accessories --> System Tools and go back a day or two. If it's a software issue, that may resolve it.

Post back with any problems.

Sleep problem


I've seen this on many Dell machines, and I've found no real fix for this. It seems that this function either works or it doesn't. You can do a restore back to a point that you remember it working properly, but eventually it will start doing it again. I've decided that this is a glitch with Dell's systems. You can also do a bios update from Dell's support site, sometimes this helps with the little glitch they pick up.
