What wireless card is installed on my hp pavillion p7 NS CUAUIB 6

Go to the hp.com site and click on support and select Drivers. On the right side of the page is a link offering to let HP Detect my product. Click that and it should show all wireless devices available for the model you have. If your wanting to reload the driver, just click on each one (one at a time) and if it's the correct driver, it will load up and if not, it will tell you it didn't discover the device. No big deal. Just click on the next one till it recognizes your card and loads up!

Asks for security password but my usb ports are not active i press the keys and nothing happens

It Sounds Like The Software Is Messed Up So Badley That The Only To Fix it Is To Re Partition And Format The Hard Drive And Re Install The Os! However You Need A Sepret Piece Of Software In Order To Do This! This Software Would Be On A CD Rom Disk And Is For The Brand Of Hard Drive You Are Using! Just Go In To The Bios Of The PC To Make Shure It Is Set Up To Boot From The CD Rom Drive And Save And Exit The Bios Then Incert The CD Rom Disk And Fallow The Instructions On The Screen!

If i push the power button,i get this information: memory write/read failure at 12602000, read 6B8F608F expecting 608F608F Decreasing available memory memory address line at 12610000, read 00000000

Hi Daiel, Hopefully this will be the problem of the system memory module or the module slot. Try with changing the memory slot of same memory module or change the entire memory module. Its very old one right, so these problems may occur due to heavy duty done by the memory modules.

Need to connect reurbished dell GX520 to existing internet

first connect the "cat 5" cable to the dell's network card, the card has a square-ish hole with a little "cutout" in the top (for the cable's connector tab) the other end of the "cat 5" cable goes into the back of the router (you do have an existing router?) into one of the un-used square-ish holes (same cutout for the tab). Then turn on the computer, see if the computer will "connect" to the router (that means it sees the router in computer-ish software). IF that works then connect the router to the Modem (supplied by the "Internet Provider"... Then turn on the modem.... IF all goes well, your computer will now be able to connect to the existing internet. Now for problems... IF it seems to be connected correctly using the proper cat 5 cable, and it still will not work... turn off everything, start with the internet modem, then the router, then the computer... COUNT to 30 (1, 2, 3, 4... 29, 30) turn on the internet modem... count to 90 (1,2,3,4...90) turn on the router... count to 30 (1,2,3,4...30) turn on the computer... wait for it to fully boot, look down at the lower right of the screen and see if it can connect now. IF it still doesn't connect, you may have to try another network card in the computer, or get a wireless USB "thingy" to connect to a wireless router... Hope this helps...

The full information, you can search yourself; that's like asking what drives over 30mph on a highway and please be complete.  Meanwhile all AGP x4 slots support 512MB videocards, if that's what you're asking.
