Certain models talk to a chip in the adapter, sounds like this one has gone bad. At this point you can live with, buy a new one or pick up a used. This is a fairly popular model and you should be able to locate one from a dead laptop.

Resetting a Dell Vostro to the factory settings allows the user to restore the Dell Vostro to the original operating condition as if it was just taken out of the box. Dell system includes a restore utility called 'Dell Symantec System Restore' to reset or restore your Dell system to factory setting.

Step 1: Before reset any Dell Vostro laptop, backup your all important data and programs, otherwise you may lose it. It is recommended to use an external storage device for your entire data backup, so that you couldn't lose it in any sudden occurring issue...

Step 2: Remove any other unnecessary external drive and restart your Dell Inspiron laptop.

Step 3: Press 'F8' key continue until 'Advanced Boot Options' wouldn't be appear.

Step 4: Use your keyboard arrow key to select 'Repair Your Computer' from the list and hit 'Enter'.

Step 5: Now click 'Next' and login as the administrator account.

Step 6: Click 'Dell Factory Image Recovery and Data Safe options', select your language option and click 'Next'.

Step 7: Click the check box 'Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition' and click 'Next' to start Dell Vostro reset process...

This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the Dell Vostro laptop and reset the configuration settings to factory setting.

To reset your BIOS password means removing your case so if your not happy doing this take it to your local PC repair shop but if you want to do it yourself here is how

Remove the battery from the laptop and then remove the case, once you can access the mainboard locate the BIOS battery remove this and leave it out for a good 3 - 5 mins then replace. this should clear the BIOS and remove your password, there may also be a jumper on the mainboard if you jump this it will clear the BIOS without having to remove the battery, once put back together your password will have gone and you can access your BIOS again

This error code means that the Hard disk is not being detected during the POST part of the boot up, this means the HDD has failed, you have a loose connection to the HDD and the system cannot find it.

Open the case and check your connections if thay are all ok and the error still shows then the drive has failed and you will need a new HDD if your unit is still under warranty contact Dell who will sort a replacement HDD, infact if your unit is still under warrenty don't open the case to check your connections just call them and thay will sort it for you .

Press 'F 8' repeatedly as PC starts to get to your boot menu. If I will no longer be associated with Fixya.com as their policies have changed and what was once a good side-job is now an unpaid service. Yet the customers still pay dearly for answers! You may contact me through my website, David Home Computer Repair, if you would need professional, inexpensive tech support.it does not appear still, you may have to go into BIOS settings (F 2) and enable the settings.

Try removing your battery and then putting it back. If that doesn't work, then either your hard drive is bad or maybe even your motherboard is bad. If you can get into your computer's BIOS, check and see if it will allow you to do a system restore from the BIOS page. As stated above, it is probably that your hard drive is bad.

Download the drivers from the laptop manufacturer, and also download the apps if it comes with proprietary apps (or you can use Windows if it does not come with any apps)

the problem can be many:--
1.go to device manager and check under network adapters,,whether any wireless card is present or not,,if yes,,check whether there is a yellow bang beside it??if yes then the drivers need to be reinstalled,,if it still doesnt resolve the prob. then the hardware may be faulty.sometimes u might see a option "network controller" then u need to reinstall the WLAN card drivers.but if you dnt see any option of WLAN card or network controller,then u hav to open up the computer and reseat the card.if still doesnt work,,then replace the card
