    Does your laptop have a factory recovery partition built into it to restore it to out of the box - new condition?



    Need to know this because there might be a driver installation in place for this one and or a few more steps. Let me know

My laptop did not work while reformat "it says make sure that your hard disk is properly connected";what should I do?give me some help!!!!pls!!


Try using a different USB port to connect the external drive you're trying to format. If you're formatting the internal drive of the laptop, try doing it using a Windows installation disc. If that fails as well, you'll need a new drive.

How do i enable wireless internet on a 2 year old HP desktop


You have to have a wireless card installed on the desktop. Either a PCI wireless card that will be installed inside the computer on one of the pci slots or you can use a usb wireless card that plugs into the usb port.

Unlike laptops, there will be no switch to turn on or off. The wireless on desktops is controlled by the software program that comes with the wireless adapter.

Try Tiger Direct at:

When the site comes up just type: PCI Wireless Adapter or USB Wireless Adapter in the white search box at the top of the page and click GO.

It sounds like a Hard Drive error. Get to the recovery partition by pressing F8 and selecting Repair. If it is not there contact HP for a recovery disk.

How would i connect my wireless keyboard to my lap top ?


Simply use the insulation disk that came with the wireless keyboard to install it on your laptop . You may have to modify your device settings with regards to the internal keyboard when you enable the wireless keyboard . Load the installation CD into the laptop and follow the directions . The software might setup and modify your device connection settings automatically for you , and perhaps with options or hot keys to switch from wireless and internal keyboard settings on the fly .

HP Pavilion dv9700 laptop, Wireless stops working at random.


HP's normally use the Atheros wifi card which recently has had many problems such as what you describe here. Try a different wifi card to see if this solves the problem. If you don't have a wifi card take it to a local repair shop to see if they have one they can try for you.

You could try using a wireless adapter that connects through usb but the connection is not as strong. Otherwise I would try to buy an internal wireless card which is just installed into a PCI slot on your motherboard.

Got a hp laptop with wireless on it the wireless has just stopet working i have to use a usb adapter so that i can go on the internet.can you tell me how to get my wirelss back.thank you.


does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?

if not is it enabled in the bios?

Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..

On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch

there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..

what model HP laptop do you have?

ACER LAPTOP


Broadcom will only work if your laptop actually has a wireless receiver built in to it. If it does not, you need to purchase a new card for the slot. Some laptops ship with a default instruction book for all its laptops, but not all laptops have built in wireless receiver. If you are sure it does, look for a wirelss on off switch on your laptop, usually at the front or either side of the laptop shell.
