Can't find wireless device

My laptop recently crashed, so i got a disc made to save data, then ran the restore discs. Now the computer works, but can't find the wireless connection to get onto the internet. The wireless router on my desktop seems to be working. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Whaqt may have happened is that the driver for the wireless adapter may not have installed. Go to my computer, right click,properties>hardware tab>device mangager and lokk in the list for any yellow exclamation marks, if so this may well be your wireless card, unless you can see it listed in the wireless adapters line. If you cannot see it, the exclamation mark may be it, this means theres no driver. If you have not got the driver, try here http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/ftp/ftp.html When you have installed the driver, restart the pc and your adapter should be found and the driver installed automatically

Hello Sir i purchased 500 GB seagate 500GB free agent go hard disk 2 years before. recently i encountered the problems as follows. usb did not recognize the hard disk and it sound like sparking also white...

What sounds like sparking could be a head crash. If it is a head crash
then you are basically finished with the drive. They all go sometime.
The only safe way is to have another backup drive and keep a current second
copy of all information which you must save. Even this procedure is not
completely safe.
The hard drive should not make any noticeable sound (not more than a fan
sound). If it does, then it is probably dead or about to die. If the information
on the drive is IMPORTANT, then you can contact a data disc recovery site
which can help you with removing most of the data from a crashed disc.
I pioneered this recovery system idea many years ago and several companies
exist now to recover data from crashed discs.

Check and see if the hard drive came loose check the bios to see if it is recognized..It is saying there is nothing with an O/S on it and when you put the disk in it does not register a hard drive to restore..Check the hard drive and start the computer up and see if you can cancel the restore and start the laptop up regular..

I want to reformay my Dell Latitude D505 laptop. I have the reinstall disc with system software, device drivers, diagnostics and utilities as well as the windows XP Disc. Is this all I need ?

HI there,

It looks like you're good to go except you should, during rebuilding your system, go to the Dell Support Drivers & Downloads site (which they recommend), enter the service tag# for your laptop, and download and install most of your drivers from there as they will be the most recent.

Since you're using XP, you'll want to start with the XP disc and reformat and install XP first, then use your Dell Dsic that has drivers on it to install the LAN and WLAN (wired and wireless internet connection) drivers to get on the net and go to the Dell site.

I usually make a folder on the desktop and name it Drivers, then while at the Dell site dowload each driver, BIOS update, application, etc. to that folder so I can work directly from the driver files without constantly reconnecting to the Dell site every time I have to restart after a driver install that requires it.

Good Luck

Hi,

You could try using the system restore in windows. Under start-->acc-->system tools. Select a restore point and restore to that state. Just try to backup your data before doing this. Hope this helps!

Problem with Network driver (Dell Inspiron 1525)

I might be a bit late on this but I had the exact same problem just a couple of days ago. What I did was download the drivers needed fromhere (download the two drivers in the Network section). I downloaded these from a different computer then you have to copy and save them to a flash drive and transfer them to your computer and install from there. Your wireless should work after doing this.

Wireless network connections

If your laptop came with a "System Restore" disc, back up all your data first, then boot off the System Restore disc. That will return the laptop to the state that you initially received it in.

THE RESTORE PROCESS WILL WIPE OUT ALL YOUR DATA - so make sure you copy anything you want to keep to a USB stick, another computer, a thumb drive, or somewhere other than on your laptop.
