Wi-Fi card in laptop, wont work with vista

Q: Wi-Fi card in laptop, wont work with vista

hey, here i have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo-pro v3405.
I recently installed vista home premium x86 on it, but after all drivers are installed. The only thing failing to start is my Intel 3945abg wireless network card.
I've checked the Unit list, petty I do not recall what it was called, anyway, it wont work. When I run diagnostics, all it says is, use the pre-made button to turn on your wireless network card. Guess what, I tried all the buttons for the wireless, but no. Won't work.
I did work fine in Xp though.

I tried downloading the drivers from the ATI website but when i tried to install it a eroor message came up saying to check that i had the right hardware or software and that my hardware or software configuration might not be correct?

I have checked in my device manager and it has not even picked up my new graphics card.

I run xp pro and installed an ati all-in-wonder radeon graphics card. My bios and the windows startup page appeared but when the desktop was supposed to appear it went black. I have onboard video, but when installed, Bios detects the graphics card and the vga bridge and makes it primary. However, the graphics card is 32 mb ddr and i have sdram in my system, would that matter? Please help if you can. thanks

Hello Kastiel26

Everything I find for that particular model is in Japanese, VGN-NR72B | ????????? | ??????? | VAIO | ????? If your understanding of Japanese is as good as mine I suggest trying similar model numbers ie.

Try use the AC Adapter connect to the notebook.

Remove all other USB Device and Only the card Reader..

and Test... Sometime when you plug in the card reader it use the power from the notebook.... . if the current the USB provide is unstable or lower ... then this kind of issue may happen..

Thou, Windows is telling me my graphic device is working proberly I'm still having issues with Auro and some games.
I've tried troubleshooting, but all I've got was an error telling me that card doesn't support DirectX 9.0... even it has DirectX 11.0 Evolved.

Typically when a pc isn't running on a graphic card you can see it by moving different Windows around, cause it leaves some kind of trail and that is exactly what happens for me atm.

A:why wont vista work

You have a new computer, take it back to the seller and ask him/her. It would appear that the copy of Vista installed is invalid. You might also phone Microsoft and explain to them and see if they can assist. If the Vista installation is not a valid installation they will NOT help.

I just got a Asus A8N-SLI mother board and a pny 7800gt video card. The card only works in the bottom pci express slot though, when i try to plug into the top the monitor light keeps blinking like nothings going through. Everything seems to work fine when in the bottom slot but i am worried about the heat. I have my sound card close to that so theres not much flow between like their would be in the top slot. (also the top slot is blue, bottom is black, if that makes a difference) I left the default set at single card mode on the motherboard. Also being in that slot is the card running at full capacity? 16x?

Well, if you purchased the laptop from an OEM, why wouldn't they provide you with the disk?
Most of them are kind enough to send a replacement. Further, this sounds more like a hardware issue.
Can't be sure without testing the hardware though. With a Vista CD you can check memory and the hard drive.
You could download SystemRescue CD from or Ultimate boot CD and check out the hardware.

Who's the Manufacturer of the hardware?

My internet wont work, ive tried using both crome and IE but both browsers say that I am not connected to the internet despite the fact my computer says that I am connected to the internet. I know its not a network problem because my other devices are connecting fine. Also I tried connecting to the wifi at home and at school and it still does not work. My laptop is a HP ProBook 6390b and I am using windows 7. This problem started occurring after about 4 months disuse of my laptop which I think might be a factor as to why its not working. I have run windows updater and run a scan with my antivirus but still nothing helps. Thank you for any assistance in advance.

Hey everyone,
So today my friend dropped his laptop and said that the computer wont work. So I took it in my hands. The laptop is a Acer 5532-5194. The problem is that when ever i boot the laptop, all the leds turn on ( the power led, the optical drive led) and even the optical drive can eject, but no display! Its just a black screen and nothing appears. I tried to boot it without the battery and just AC adaptor but that didn't make a difference. I swapped hard drives with my own laptop, that didn't work. Not sure what else to try and what the heck the problem is. I even plugged it into a external monitor seeing if that would do any good...NOPE, I was wrong. So could someone else tell me what I could do to fix it and what the problem may be?

This one is puzzling me alot :/ I cant seem to get the homegroup working between my desktop and my laptop (both running Windows 7 HE SP1). I create the homegroup with my desktop and used the password provided to connect to it on my laptop. It says they are connected. I can access my laptops libraries on my desktop, but if i try to use my laptop to access the desktops libraries i see this:

I have tried disabling the firewall (Avg) on both computers.. Id also like to add that the desktop computer does not always show up in the network.. it is very inconsistent.. I have no clue what is going on!
Any help?!?

Well start with what it lists there first. Particularity the network location. Also, if you have Windows firewall up try disabling it as well.

My friend has a laptop at home, he has Dial up connection, it works on the home PC but not his laptop. It was working but just stopped,

I took the Laptop into work and hooked it up to the wireless connection and the same thing happens. (No connection)

I think there might be a virus on this system stopping it from working.

Does anyone have any tips for stuff to check, Or any programs i can download, Burn to CD and run on his PC.

I was thinking Spybot Serach and destory and maybe Hi-jack this.

If anyone has any pointers please let me know

PS this laptop is running very slow..

If you have not already, then you might see if installing the drivers using Compatibility Mode with "Run as Administrator" and the OS the drivers were made for selected may help.

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a new Dell laptop Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7 64-bit, Pentium(R) Dual core CPU T4200 @ 2.0GHz (2CPU's), 4096MB RAM. The graphics card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330

The main problem is that the Sims 3 game wont load on it. I put it in and I can hear it whizzing round however nothing happens and it doesnt recognise it. There are no error messages or anything.

I have used the game on a previous Dell laptop and it worked fine so the game is alright, also, I have played other games on my new laptop and its fine. On the other hand it doesnt recognise certain DVD's either. I thought the spec of my laptop was adequate for the Sims 3 but I could be wrong. Any help would be much appreciated!

Do you want to have the symbol appear (The ASCII Copyright symbol)?

Try enabling the Numlock and using the embedded alternate number keys in the main keyboard?

I used to have a laptop connected with wireless (netgear WG511) through a router (D-link) to my main computer with the internet.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, upgrading from an IBM r40 to an r52, and was wondering how to get the wireless network working again. The r52 appears to have a wireless card built in, and can find networks, as it can find my neighbours one (but cant connect)

I tried installing the Netgear external wireless card, but that didnt do anything except make a new network connection, which also didnt work.

If there is any other information thats needed, please let me know cos I really dont have much idea at all...

can somebody please tell me what is going on? They are on the exact same OS, it makes no since why 1 would work and the other not?

A:Installed W7 on laptop, worked. Now iMac wont work?

your trying to install the x64 version right? the 32 bit version doesnt do this, and there is a fix for the x64 version that requires you to edit a bunch of files. Sorry I don't have the info but its do-able but I just went 32 bit since the iMac can only use 4 gigs RAM anyway.
