A:Please Help my WLAN button wont flash up

You have installed the driver for the wireless adapter and other chipset drivers, right? And you go into Network Connections, right-click on the wireless connection and choose 'enable' but it stays at disabled? Plus you cannot switch the wireless on?

If the above equals three 'yes' answers, I think the wireless adapter has failed.

I have the above notebook and my WLAN button will not stay engaged. I am writing simply to ask if anyone knows if this is a common problem with these machines. I bought it new at Best Buy about 8 months ago. I did not get the extended service agreement. this problem first occurred a couple of days after my 30 day warranty expired. I took it back to Best Buy the next day and the button was working properly. the person at the repair desk at Best Buy said these machines are known to have this issue, however I have not heard anything about it since. The WLAN button worked fine until yesterday. online chats with HP were no help. I will take it to a repair shop to get it fixed. I would just like to find out if anyone has heard or knows if this is a common problem with these machines....thank you.

My WLAN button on my compaq presario cq57 is not working how can I turn on my wifi from my computer?

A:Wifi WLAN button not working

First check the status of your adapter in Device Manager, then if that is OK go to Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center. In the upper left corned, click on Change Adapter Settings, then look at the status of the adapter; right click it and see if the option to Enable is available.

Upgraded my Presario 2568 to WinXP, everything works, except the on/off button for the integrated wireless lan (front right side near blue LED and IR). This worked before the upgrade from XPhome. There is a heading under Start Menu called Utilities:

Start Menu>Utilities>Wireless Configuration

There is a dialogue box that opens, and says "The following devices are controlled by the wireless on/off button. Click an icon below to turn one device on or off."

There is nothing in this list. Anyone know how to get the HP WLan 54g device listed in there?

A:Compaq Presario 2500 WLAN On/Off Button

Have you gone to the HP website and download all the updated XP Device Drivers? You may also want to check the FAQ on that site to see if its a known issue.

One last thing, Go into Control Panel -> System -> device manager and see if there's any missing drivers or errors.

Ok so here is the problem, a month and a half ago the laptop wouldn't turn on, it goes and gets fixed and the power supply wasn't returned, today we finally receive the power supply (which caused 1 month of the waiting).

So I plug it up and everything goes on fine and dandy, however the laptop will not receive an Internet connection and it says that the wireless LAN is disabled, the laptop is a Presario v6000 Compaq which has a button on the front of the laptop which enables and disabled the wireless LAN, the button is currently set to enabled however the button is jammed on enable and it has an Amber light, so I can't turn it on and off. I went to device manger then network adapters and acording to that, the WLAN is enabled but the laptop is telling me it's disabled!

is there any way I can fix this? or will it have to get sent away again?

I hope the question makes sense, I'm only 16 so I'm not the best when it comes to computers, I also badly need the laptop fixed because I need it for school and I am currently posting this question using my iPhone.

A:Laptop says WLAN is disabled, device manager says WLAN is enabled!

Well, if the button isn't toggling the wireless state, you may have to send it away again. What do you mean the button is "jammed"?

I am setting up a new wireless router and new laptop.

The laptop sees the WLAN (name) in Control Panel -> Networking -> Sharing and Network, but this WLAN (name) does not show up in the laptop's 'WLAN selector list' when I click on the network icon that's in the system tray.

I hope my description, above, makes sense. If so, does this problem description suggest an area of configuration that I have done incorrectly?

Thanks for any hints.

A:WLAN in Control Panel but not in system tray WLAN list

The new router needs to be setup with the SSID not hidden. Also the router needs to be set for the same type of wireless that the devices use.

It is also helpful when you post these kind of questions, to include system info in your profile and also manufacture and model of the router.

Just for starters, Hold the windows key down and press the X key. See if you get a menu that should have several options as well as the option to shut down or restart. See if that will work and let me know. If it does, select command prompt (Admin) and copy/paste this into the window. sfc /scannow. If it says errors were found, reboot and run it again. You may have to run it 3 times before getting the 'Windows found no integrity violations', which is what you want it to say. Let me know how it goes, and welcome to Tenforums.

Hi, I use windows washer occasionally to keep my hdd clean and as empty as possible. I have only 85 gig hdd, so it full most of the time.

I followed instuctions on how to change the name of your start button, or change the text it displays on it rather than 'start'. It envolves changing the explorer exe file to something else and uses some hacker program to help do that along with regedit and so on.

Now Window Washer cannot find anything to scan, it just starts and then no sooner stops with no files washed. I tried adding the new explorer file to the custom wash list but it made no difference. I also wiped it and re installed it but it still finds no files to wash.

Any help?

A:Wireless button wont respond and stays orange.

Inharrharrt You mention Win10 in your post, but according the the HP Product page for your PC, it came with Win7 preinstalled. I ran into a similar situation upgrading an HP DV6 laptop from Win7 to Win10 -- in that, no matter what I did, the WiFi button LED stayed orange. In discussing this with HP support, we determine the problem was because, when I did the Upgrade, I had the WiFi disabled (using that button) so I could do the downloads using wired networking.  So, when the machine upgraded to Win10, it did not install the right WiFi drivers and it thus, stayed disabled. I spend a lot of time on these forums getting links to drivers and installed them all (one at a time) -- and NOTHING worked! What fixed that was complicated, as follows:1) Restore the PC back to Win7 -- using an image backup I had made with Macrium Reflect2) Follow these directions to obtain a genuineticket.xml file: Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First - Windows 10 Forums3) Turn on the WiFi using the button4) Do a clean-install of Win10 using media I had downloaded using this:  Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help5) Once Win10 was up and running, follow the same directions in the TenForums thread to install the xml file and activate Win10. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.----------------------------...

Thanks for writing to us. 
5 beeps usually means CMOS failure, now it could be the battery failure or the motherboard failure. If your system is under warranty we can get it repaired or else you can check with a local Dell authorized repair center and get it checked. 
You can try another CMOS battery if available.

Try clearing the CMOS (there should be a jumper on the board for that, RTFM). You can also remove the battery at the same time, it can always help.

Otherwise if you can find someone with the same motherboard, you can swap BIOS chips, turn on your system & while it's powered on, you remove the chip, replace it with the corrupt one & reprogram it.

If you do not know someone with the same motherboard, yours is shot. Get a new one.

Hi, There is a requirement in IE7 to activate the plugins...see this

Seems a lot of posting about this lately for IE7 users...

Windows Update included one that modified how plugins are used in the browser, but there is a fix for it...

Read down that page for directions to Uninstall that update, I hope it works have not tried it here.

Most of these types of drives work in WinXP with out new drivers. You might try the manufacturer's website though.

Well, since the latest flash player came out, it has been refusing to work. Done everything it says on the website, downloaded the uninstaller, even tried re-installing and old version, and it doesn't work. But oddly enough, it works on Mozilla Firefox. It works fine on Firefox, but Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, and games like Worms World Party that I bought from the gamestore, it does not work on. Any help? This is REALLY annoying me and I feel like I am gonna punch a whole trhough my computer screen any moment now. Also, when I click on a link to download it on MSN, it launches an internet window to download, it tells me it is downloading, brings up a dialog box and everything, but doesn't download. It only downloads from the official sit and on Firefox. Please help. I havre tried uninstalling Firefox, trying on IE again and then re-installing it and it still comes up with the same result. Every helpful response honestly would be greatly appreciated. Thank you loads in advance.

G'Day audiobahn, Welcome to TSF!

Please try this workaround...

Go Start > Run > type in the box C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash

Now copy the Flash9e.ocx file and then pasted it back in the same directory.

You will have created Copy of Flash9e.ocx; rename it to Flashe.ocx.

This effectively will give you two files; Flashe.ocx and Flash9e.ocx, both the same file; although with a different name, in the same directory.

This generally stops the issue you have described.

Post back with the outcome.

You failed to mention what OS the older machine has. Since you mentioned it runs on new pcs without a problem, I suspect you are trying it on an older os. Xp and above have drivers and recognize this, but if the OS is older you will need to install drivers for this usb device. I suggest you find out the make and download drivers for win9x or whatever it may have. Also, if not older os, have you tried to run it under a different windows profile ?

Ok I had a NASTY virus that I JUST got rid of. Well, my comp was running wonderfully beforehand loading videos and pages perfectly. Since I got rid of the virus (virtumonde) Websites such as myspace video, keep telling me to install adobe flash. I go to the website, try to get the download and the page will simply reload. It WILL NOT download. I don't understand because You Tube works just fine, but not myspace, or other video sites.

The second problem I am having is I will click on certain links and a page will pop up that says "internet explorer cannot display this webpage" This doesnt make sense as I can access the SAME page from another computer but not mine. If you go to my myspace page, and click my picture to see more, that is the page that pops up repeatedly for me. Other profiles dont give me that page though. I am confused. This comp didnt do anything like this before the virus.

I actually came to this website and got help from someone to get rid of the virus and just 2 or 3 days ago he said I was all clear. So what could be doing this now??

Ok got the strangest problem. Have several USB flash drives, not one of them will detect on Windows Vista x64 Ultimate. I have another PC with the exact same version of Vista on it and that computer has no problems but this one does. I have a USB mouse connected and I have tried on different USB ports with no success.

What happens is, i plug in the USB flash drive and a "found new hardware" box pops up asking me to locate the driver etc. I dont understand this as all USB flash drives operate on a generic USB driver provided by windows. So where has the process gone wrong?

Device manager shows the device with a yellow mark next to it. When i remove it and tell it to scan for hardware changes it just reinstalls with the yellow icon next to it. Properties says:

"This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver."

Which doesnt work.

When i go to Computer Management > Disk Management i see the device "Disk 1 - 3.77Gb Unallocated". Right click options of change drive letter give the following error:

"The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console view is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management Console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer"

None of which works! Re... Read more

I have a strange problem with my old laptop. I installed ubuntu onto it a few days ago from a flash drive and it worked fine. I used the Universal-USB-Installer- tool to do this. That particular flash drive would give me a disk read error if it were present at boot time, but others did not.

I'm now trying to install windows onto my laptop (dvd drive not functioning), and at first I tried copying the windows install files onto the flash, but that did not work. I then followed one of the numerous online guides available for creating a bootable windows flash drive to install windows 7, but that does not work on my laptop, yet works on my desktop. However, my flash drive now no longer gives a disk read error at boot. I have tried other flash drives to no avail.

So now I'm thinking that when I followed the online guide (which involves cleaning, formatting and re-partitioning the drive) I removed something from my flash drive that was making it boot on my laptop. The funny thing is that the partition on my flash drive was not active (before the format), yet it still booted to install linux.

Guide that I use:

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I have a Toshiba Satellite L4550-S5976 running under Windows 7. When I start it up (and if I catch it at the right time), the touchpad buttons work fine for a few minutes. After the machine completely boots, the touchpad button problems start - the left button performs as the right button and the right button does nothing.

On a lark, I plugged in a USB mouse and rebooted. When I do that, the mouse works fine AND the touchpad buttons work properly. Carrying around a mouse isn't always convenient so I'd like to have the machine work as expected.

I tried updating the touchpad drivers - that did not fix the problem. I even reinstalled Windows 7 on the machine - that did not fix the problem either.

Any ideas what I could do next to fix this problem?

Hi, i have some problems with my 8gb flash drive.
i get a few error when i try to fix it the way i can only think off, maybe someone else knows how i can fix it.

firstly: When i plug it in i get this error:

I click format as i think it will fix it and i get this:
As you can see it says "unknown capacity" and i dont know why or how to fix it.

i then click format and i get this error:
i then click close on the format window as i dont know what else to do and i get this error:

I have it plugged in correctly as its only 1 and a half inches long and it plugs smoothly into my usb port. The only thing i can think of that has made it crash like this is that the school computers have the "safely remove hardware" feature removed so i have to just remove it. Nothing has been done to this to damage the actuall hardware physically.

If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this i would appreciate it, if you could point me in the right direction.

I have a Samsung 512 Flash drive (its light gray color) that saves files when it feels like it. What happens is it saves the files and it allows me to access them all up until the point when i disconect the drive from my pc. When I try to access them again they are no longer there. This has happened using many different pc's. I dont understand what the problem could be.
When I format it allows me to save but then it starts to not save all over again.
I went to Samsung's web site and they dont have any information pertaining to flash drives. I also called there tech support and they could offer me no information. Infact the 2 different reps had no clue about samsung even having flash drives. I told the guy thats strange because there are many of them on ebay for sell, NEW.

I got the drive from a friend because he has serval and he wasnt using it. Anyhow I dont want to waste a drive so maybe one of you could help me.

That doesn't sound good, my guess is your drive is toast. Best to buy a new one, where did you get it at? Can you take it back? Has it ever worked properly?

Try to format it through disk management in XP, if its still no good, try it on a Windows98SE machine (you will likely need a driver for your drive to do this). Or try to format it as FAT32 from a linux machine.

So I search " Inspector Gadget Dubstep " and I noticed no suggestions came up on Youtube, so I opened the video than it said I needed Adobe Flash Player. I have both, I just updated Java, and now I'm getting bored. Can someone give me a hand with this? Thanks, Mythic.

A:JavaScript and Adobe Flash Player wont work.

Also, please don't tell me to search for something on Google.It only gives me a Blank Page.I also can't colour my text or use Smilies.I'm not sure about the Auto-Restart, but if it happens, I'll post.

A:Mi Computer Wont Let Me Download Adobe Flash Player

Hello lilroq

Are you able to provide any more information about the problem? Being more specific will increase the chances of getting the problem fixed.

Try to answer as many of these questions as you can:
Can you download anything else?
What browser are you using?

What do you mean by "ill get there to the point where it says installl but then it wont download"?
Do you mean that when you click download the download screen won't poup?
Or do you mean the window does popup, but then it closes?
Or do you mean you are not able to click the download button at all?

Computer wont start up, after the windows loading screen there is a blue screen that flashes for a second then the computer just restarts.
Cannot go into any of the safe modes either or last known configuration same thing happens.
Have run recovery console and did a chkdsk /p, no probloems there so I figure it must be a virus or something?

Would greatly appreciate assistance


A:Computer wont start up, blue screen flash, restarts

update, I video taped the computer screen, and during the blue flash, what i could make from the video is
"..has been detected and windows has shut down..."
" the first time you've seen this stop error..."
"make sure any new hardware or software is properly...."
