If a motherboard is bent against its normal proportional look, you have a motherboard problem and need to get this looked at by a professional. (In short, the motherboard is going out)

Or if you are capabable of repairing yourself search ebay for a new motherboard.

    Does the scanner have a program installed to manage connections? You might need to open it up and tell it to manage your wireless connection and not Windows.

    It looks like common problem: my OLD T30 can see only one 256mB memory slot. Does it make sense to install one 512 mB unit? Can T30 recognize 1gB memory? Thank you in advance


    Hello

    Yes, you system will support up to 1GB of ram, so, if i were you i would suggest that you buy a 1GB chip, this will give you the best performance upgrade. And, ram is so cheap at the moment, so, i think it will be the best option.

    Let me know if you found this helpful.

    Kind regards

    I have inhertited a Hi-Grade R5400S Laptop which I would like to upgrade and give to my nephew.The machine is a Pentium 4 CPU 2.50GHz with 640 MB RAM and has XP Pro SP1 installed. My main problem is that...


    Instead of trying to replace the wireless card which may be awkward to find an exact match, I would recommend finding an inexpensive Type 1 or 2 PC-CARD / PCMCIA Card (Not express card). You can pickup an inexpensive WiFi B/G Card which will work fine.

    Good Luck

    Ice tea was spilled network wireless card stopped working


    I wouldn't use the card again for fear that it may have a short in it, and burn out other components in the motherboard.

    Not only the power, and signal sources from the motherboard to the wireless card, but a short in the card could result in damage to the entire motherboard as well.

    Not worth it in my book.

    In otherwords I would fork out for a new wireless card.

    Need to reset bios password for acer 4620 laptop. tryed removing battery on mb . no good . ? passmord bios


    Try removing the main battery and the CMOS battery (ie the battery on the mb). If you don't want to wait for 1/2 hour for the CMOS to discharge then short out the CMOS battery connections with a bent paper clip.
    Then without instralling both battery, power up your laptop, you should then get into the BIOS, power off and re-install your batteries.

    A35 internal modem does not work


    There may also be a key combination on your keyboard to enable/disable it. check for that first.

    If that doesn't do it then i would reinstall the wireless driver from http://pcsupport.toshiba.com for your model and see if that helps.

    Most wireless issues are software not hardware but if none of that does it the easiest thing is to buy a PC card.

    Good luck!
