Unclear here? When you take the battery out, it shuts off? Assuming you do have the power supply plugged in? (sorry, I know it sounds silly that I ask that, but you just never know)

Acers will work with the battery out, actually that is how I HAD to work my acer. I personally would not buy another ACER because of the problems I have had with mine. I had to remove my battery as the keyboard and mouse would NOT function with the battery in place. (the battery never held long charge from new anyway). So I started using it plugged in all the time. (no battery).

As far as the hitting the wireless button and the computer shuts down, I'm wondering if just moving the laptop period is what is causing the shutdown. My Acer too, (because of jiggly PS jack on the back) would cut off is laptop is even slightly moved. Maybe while pushing the button the laptop too gets moved? Unsure. It may be a shortage issue, but I suspect it has more to do with shorted PS jack.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

Cannot get an HP G60 120US running Win Vista SP2 to recognize wireless internet connection. Wireless button will not turn blue (on), even after a two-minute power down reset with the battery removed...


I've had similar problems with wireless cards refusing to turn their light blue until the driver was updated via windows update. Obviously I had to do this using a wired connection. Try connectiing with a wired connection and udating until windows update tell you everything is up to date then restart your laptop and wait for about 5 minutes before you press the on/off button on your wireless. You can also try removing the wireless card (physically I mean) rebooting, shutting down and replacing the card then rebooting again. If you know anybody that has the same kind of laptop ask if you can try their wireless card to see if it's a fault with that. Sorry I can't help more.

Hi,

You may have turn the wireless radio on first before you can connect to the internet.

Look down the sides of the laptop for a small slide switch and push it, an LED light should come on.

If you can't find a switch then hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.



Regards.

Wireless button (and wireless in general) does not work


ok. unplug your computer and remove the battery. leave it that way for two full minutes. then put the battery back in and plug the computer back in. These steps reset your computer.

now open it up and crack it up using your usual method. It should be fine. if not get back and I will take you through the steps of making it recognize your wireless modem again. hopefully this will not be necessary.
