MD 97900 laptop Onboard wireless and shortcut key problem.

Months ago now I was traveling over seas (before i had wireless in my home)via plane, so of course i turned off my wireless switch and disabled the card. Now, since we have broadband and a wireless router in the home, I have tried to turn it all back on, and whilst i can enable it from the connections menu, my shortcut keys and wireless switch have all stopped working. Can anyone suggest anything to fix this.

It is classic hardware problem - north bridge in laptop dies. Reheating of it can fix a problem for one-three months. Normally must change bridge G6150

You have to reinstall the Operating System such as Windows XP again nad reinstall all drivers. Thats the only solution, or else you can try to Restore the PC to the Date before you had to fly away! Patrick

I began update. Phone is frozen on iTunes plug in screen

Try holding down your power button and home button at the same time for about 10 seconds. If that does not work, you could try to hold them both down for about 3 seconds then let go of the power button and continue to hold down the home button for about 7 seconds.

Over heating on my Medion MD 97900 laptop any ideas

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I press function key & the wireless capabillity still dnt turn on is there another way 2 turn it on? its a ms6837d

Most consumer laptops have a hardware wifi on/off switch located on the sides of the laptop or toward the top row or even near the trackpad.
Also, on some laptops and most netbooks, the Fn key has alternate uses, however, it most keyed in with other keys in order to make the shortcut execute the command. In this case, Fn might not work without also holding the "Shift" or "Ctrl" key + the F-key that corresponds to the enabling/disabling of wifi.
Lastly, you might also want to look into the BIOS screen (when booting the laptop) most portable devices offer a low-level disable from that menu so that even when enabling via the Fn-keys or directly from the Windows/OSX/Linux OS, it will not turn on and stay disabled until changed via the BIOS menu.

You can see network key by logging in to router settings. Some routers are and some are All you have to do is type it in to address bar on any browser and log in and under wireless tab it will give you field where it says wep or wpa encryption and this is what you need. Hope this helps.

Fn F2 combo does not turn on wireless internet on Gateway 7405GX

There should be, i.e as in via the Network Connections in Windows. Check i Device Manager if ALL is well ad Enabled, i.e the Wireless Device.

Also you might want to enable it via BIOS setup, especially if it is Onboard and not a Plug-in Device for Wireless Connection such as a PCMCIA Wireless NIC, etc etc.

Right Clicking on Icons often reveals many shortcuts to what you can do, eg Properties of the Wireless Network Connections Enable, Disable, Status, Repair and so on.

Take your time and learn what hidden alternatives there are to navigating thru Windows.

Hopefully you'll be able to fix the problem if not already done so.

Cannot locate wireless switch

Use the shortcut Windows Key + X from your desktop to access the windows mobility center. This will allow you to enable wireless networking and allow you to connect to your wireless router.

If you have any more questions or this solution doesn't work, please let me know and I will further investigate.

Security problems

You are looking for the WEP key that is configured on your router. Use your PC that's connected via ethernet, go to the config web page for the router and somewhere on the wireless security settings you will find the WEP key that was configured for your wireless network.
