When the computer is turned on should the mouse and key board come on


Yes

I don't know anything further to tell you,......but Yes.

Hmmm, how about this?

You press the Power On Button.
This plastic assembly then presses against the Power On switch, located inside it.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
It only closes for about 1 second.

Closing the Power On switch activates a Soft Power On circuit.
The Soft Power On circuit uses the 5 Volt Standby power.

[The Power Supply always has 5 Volts present, when it is plugged into power. This is the 5 Volt Standby Power ]

Activating the Soft Power On circuit, 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns it on. (Sounds like a steamy novel)
The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.

The Basic Input/Output System program (BIOS) is initialized.
BIOS looks to see what DEVICES are connected, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on; and hands the computer over to the Operating System. (In this case a version of Windows)

-> BIOS LOOKS TO SEE WHAT DEVICES ARE CONNECTED

This means power is sent to the Keyboard to check it,
then power is sent to the Mouse to check it.

Also power is sent to all of the connected devices.

[ BIOS:
"Okay, what we got here?.........Hmmm, the Keyboard.
Yep, sent power to it, and it works.......Okay, go on........

What's this? Oh, yeah. A Mouse. Power to it reveals it works.
Time to go onto to any other devices, that might be connected.

I gotta' get this wrapped up. Supposed to pick up eggs, and bread before I get home; or the Ol' lady's gonna' be mad." ]

Was the router sent out pre-configured by your isp? what make model is the router? have you got your PC set to 'obtain ip address automatically' in the network connections control panel?

Cannot connect to internet. I had internet connection over telephone modem before Hard drive crashed. I replaced HD and could not connect to internet. Dell was no help at all. I signed up for Verizon DSL...


I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.
Connection icon and see if the netcard driver is installed.Connect the cat5 cable that was sent to you with the DSL modem box. It chould be a yellow cable... It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.

Wireless connection will not let me surf the net.


Sorry this is going to be a long answer, would be easier in a real time talk, please go one by one on my suggestions to pinpoint the problem and thank you for your patience in advance :)

Start your internet explorer/firefox, go to google main page, type something into google that you search for and click search. The reason for this is: the main page can load from an offline cache file, seeing the main google page does not mean you are really connected to it. Only if it finds results on a search.

If giving in a search word and clicking search results with no page is displayed you are either offline in your browser settings, not connected to the internet or you have browser problems. So let us check which one. :)

The browser is easiest to check, click your file menu, and down at the bottom where it says work offline. If there is a little check, untick it. Since you say however, that when you connect with cable it works I will assume that the work offline is not checked. So I will guess for the first option, that you have a network issue, so I carry on with this option.

To try to troubleshoot this, click on your start menu, select the option RUN, type into the open field: cmd

Then click ok.

It will open a black dos window. In the window, please type (after all the text that is written in it):
ipconfig

Then hit enter. This will provide you with some information about your connections. Search for the line telling you the IP address your computer is currently using. Based on what the IP is there are the following options to go:

1) If your IP address starts with 169.*.*.*, then your computer seems to be ok, your network card etc works but you did not get an ip from your wireless router though are able to connect to it. Please shut down your computer, go to the router/modem, pull out the power cable from everything and count to ten. Then plug back in the power cable, wait till all lights on the router/modem go green and start up your computer again, and see if the problem is resolved. If not resolved, check for IP again (see above, with the cmd, ipconfig). If still starts with 169, contact your internet provider and complain that you have problems accessing your router wirelessly and you receive no IP address. They are responsible for your router and they can diagnose it remotely through the connection they have to it. This way you find out fast if it is a router problem. If it is your own router, please provide router brand, type, etc some sort of number so I can look up potential problems with it:)

2) If your IP address starts with 192.168.*.* that is half ways good news, because it means you did receive an IP from the router, so at least to the router you connected. That means again card is ok, your wireless connection to router is ok, you can not browse though so let us see if there is data transfer going through, Go to start menu, run, type in again: cmd
Hit ok.

In the black window now type:
ping google.com

Now hit enter. If it says that it can not resolve the name, then you seem to not even be able to resolve hostnames. Again call your internet provider, that while you are successfully connected to your router wirelessly, there is no data transfer through it. Please do make sure you tell them the IP address and that it works with cable. If ping google does give you a line saying it can ping it, then look underneath it for how many packages are sent out and how many arrived (ping statistics). If four sent and none arrived, again it is an issue with data transfer, try turning off the router and back on, try again, and if it does not work call the internet provider.

If ping statistics says four packets sent out and four arrived :

Pinging google.com [209.85.171.100] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 209.85.171.100: bytes=32 time=201ms TTL=236
Reply from 209.85.171.100: bytes=32 time=196ms TTL=236
Reply from 209.85.171.100: bytes=32 time=196ms TTL=236
Reply from 209.85.171.100: bytes=32 time=194ms TTL=236

Ping statistics for 209.85.171.100:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

This means you can ping google, so definetly you are on the net, then back to the issue of your browser being unable to go out. Then please get back to me we WILL solve that, but I need to ask you questions then.

3) If your IP address is NOTHING or 0.0.0.0 then either your card is disabled or dhcp client is not running on your computer. You can check this by clicking start menu, control panel, system, hardware, device manager -- go down till you see the icon for network adapters, open the option, look for your wireless card and see if it has a red cross on it or an exclamation mark. If yes, right click on it, go to properties and at the bottom choose: ENABLE.
If it has no red cross/exclamation mark, then check for the dhcp client service.
To do that you have to click on start menu, control panel, administrative tools, services, and in the list search for DHCP client. If you found it, select it and right click, then choose RESTART or START if it is not running. Once it runs, try reconnecting to the wireless and check for your IP in the black window again, if it now changes to something.

4) If your IP address is none of the above but some sort of number for sure *.*.*.* that means you are on the net, you have internet IP, and yet you can not browse. Try the ping google test, and based on the results if you DO get four sent, four received, get back to me, if four sent none received, reboot router and try again and call Internet provider if still not works.

Please get back to me about which of the above happened or if this solved your problem. If none of the above solved, please provide information what your computer said at which step and we will go on on that lead. Sorry for the long answer again, but network problems can have multiple reasons:)

If the solutions did help please rate :) and let me know :D

SONY VAIO VGN-NR21Z DOESN'T SEE WIFI


Be sure that your wifi button is ON
Be sure that your wireless network is working
Check your wireless router settings
Check if you see any other wireless network available on your computer

Test connection, see if you pulled an IP address
  1. Go to the Windows desktop
  2. Select Start then Run
  3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
    At the command prompt type: ipconfig
4. What does it read as the IP address?
* If it reads 192.168. something dot something then you are pulling
an IP address and are connected to the network. The problem is
software related, check your firewall, and wireless card configuration.
Also check any WPA or WEP encryption keys. Check with the respective
manufactures.
* If it reads 0.0.0.0 for the IP address you are not connected to the network.
* Check your connection configuration and the adaptor.
* Check with the respective manufactures.

STEP TWO/ Basic troubleshooting continued....Testing the adaptor

1. Go to Windows desktop
2. Select Start then Run
3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
A DOS window will open.
4. At the prompt type: ping 127.0.0.1 (reserved IP address for all adaptors)
5. Check the line that reads "packets sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0

A. Zero is good, the adaptor is working. Again check the connection
configuration,and the adaptor configuration.
It may be a power issue especially with older or less expensive computers
or wireless cards.
* Check the antenna location, are you inside or outside, look for interference.
* Check with the respective manufactures.

B. If it reads all 4 packets lost, the adaptor is not functioning.
* Check and update the drivers, Contact the respective manufactures.
* If it shows any number of packets lost (you are dropping packets)
it is an adaptor or signal strength issue (generally form the laptop side,
not being able to reach back) especially with older or less expensive
computers or wireless cards.
* Update the drivers
* Check antenna location, or distance from the signal
* Contact the respective manufactures.

Cant connect


Is your internet connection working properly?

The network connection to the internet may have been lost with the restore and needs to be setup again. Contact your local ISP (Internet Service Provider) and have them assist with the details to re-establish your internet connection.
