I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello forum people,

I have the following problem on my Toshiba Satellite R850 running Win7 64bit: I decided to change the wireless adapter so I can connect to the 5GHz wifi network my router provides which wasnt possible on the Atheros wireless adapter it came with. I changed it to a Intel Wireless AC 3160- the physical change went quick and without problems and while the adapter is basically working now the problem I'm facing now is that the F8-hotkey function to de-/activate the Wifi and Bluetooth is no longer working. When I press the hotkey button all the different hotkey combinations show up on the upper part of the screen, but now there's only F1-F7 and F9, F8 just went missing. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back?

Thanks in advance and take care

Does anyone have any suggestions of something i could do to get my wifi to work.

Thank you
 

A:Wifi button not working

The eMachines E727 laptop appears to come with Windows 7 Starter Edition 32-bit.
Is that the correct Windows version yours is running?

Go into the Device Manager, then expand the Network Adapters heading.
What's the exact description of the devices listed there?
Double-click each one to open its properties window.
Does it show each one as working properly?

If that laptop's built-in wireless device has stopped working for some reason, the easiest solution is to install an external USB wireless adapter.

Hello everyone,  Since i got my Lenovo Y50, i have been having an issue rarely and i thought it would be better to try and fix it.I have had it on Windows 8.1 and now on Windows 10 also, when i start my computer, WiFi works flawlessly, but if I try and switch to another network on open the WiFi networks tab on the taskbar, it might happen that it kinda "freezes", meaning that it shows either that WiFi networks availalbe or not available but when i click on it nothing happens. I mean it doesnt pop up the select WiFi network window. And also if during this time i try to go to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Settings it doesn't open it. If i plug a LAN cable in it the internet works fine but the WiFi button still stays the same. Doesn't even change to the cable connection one. Also this sometimes happens when wifi is working but i notice that the icon changed to the above mentioned (WiFi networks availalbe or not available) and when i try clicking on the wifi button nothing pops up, meaning again i cant change the WiFi on disconnect. Funny thing is that every single time this happens, a restart fixes it. Every time so it really doesn't make sense to me and it baffles me that this can happen. I tried reinstalling drivers, looking for stable ones, etc. nothing helps. I will provide a picture with my device manager Network Adapters tab, i hope it helps. Any oppinions are welcome.

I'm having a problem that's been on and off with my.wifi for a while. I have a Yoga 2 Pro and the WiFi card seems to disappear completely and I can't get it back without removing all the batteries and leaving it a while. It's not like it needs a driver update, it totally disappears as if it's not even installed and won't show up in any OS or even under the "rfkill list command". It appears to be completely failing. Thing is I've swapped it out and it seems to be some part of the operation that mounts it that isn't working. I notice that it installs into the power board and not the motherboard. Would swapping this fix it? Does anyone have any ideas?

This is my first time posting so i hope its in the right place. Here it goes:

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaahahaha don't look at the other tab

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

I have a desktop computer but it definately has a wireless network card. i used to get windows updates for it and it just stopped working one day. when i look in the BIOS the only option related to booting a network card is B03 D00 Yukon PXE. no matter when i boot it i still dont get wireless signals. when i go into the boot menu and try to boot this device it says " PXE E61: media test failure please check cable" i have opened the tower and the card is securely in its slot. i thought i would workaround by getting a usb wifi card. I installed it and connected to the internet and it alternated between having a connection to the internet and being connected to the network but not the internet. even when it is connected to the internet i cannot reach any web pages. my dropbox desktop files update very slowly (7kb/s). when i am connected with the usb card the network stops working for everyone else in the house. they can no longer reach web pages or continue downloads. please help.

Learn How to Post and More. I see that you are having a problem with your Bluetooth. That is very odd because your model comes with a wireless adapter combo which includes Bluetooth.

hi, I have a pavilion dv6-615nr which is about 5 years old. WiFi button worked well until couple of months ago and now it works as it wishes. Now it is always orange and though I press it won't change. Sometimes it changes into blue but it happens rarely and it stays only few minutes. Again it turns orange. The WiFi card is Intel Centrino Wireless- N 1000.Sometimes this doesn't show up in the network adapter(device manager) and sometimes with a caution mark. When I troubleshoot it says they fix it. but button is still orange and WiFi doesn't work at all. Please tell me what should I do. It's really giving me a headache.Thank you in advance.

A:WiFi button won't turn on

Hi: If the wireless card is intemittently disappearing completely from the device manager, perhaps the connection from the card to the slot it plugs into, has become oxidized. I would try removing and firmly reseating the wireless card.  If you can leave the antennas attached when doing that, it will save you the hassle of having to reattach those tiny antennas. Check the maintenance and service guide (chapter 4, pp 67-68) for your notebook, for how to remove and replace the wireless card. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02842252 Always remove the battery and unplug the notebook from A/C power when working inside of it. Then I would install a newer driver for that model card directly from Intel...the 2nd one down on the left is for W7 x64. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23491/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windo...

Do you have a switch on the side of your laptop to switch on and off besides the wifi button sometimes you can accidently hit the switch on the side and no mater what you do it won't work

could be wrong but i know people who had that issue come to find out the switch on the laptop wasnt turned on

Hello lovely people. I`ve had my 7535g for 9 months now and after 2 dodgy months at the start all is pretty good.

However, one of the reasons for my getting one was that it came with an upgrade to windows 7. Unfortunately it`s the 32 bit home edition. So not only do I have a reduced version but my system is 64 bit.

Having already suffered and bested the upgrade to 7 before I feel ready for this.

There are a couple of issues that I`ll have tho so I`ve come here for some advice.

The 7535g is pretty standard apart from a user programmable button above the kboard and 3 user buttons to the left.

I found the software to install the programmable one, Launch Manager.
But the other 3, for wifi, bluetooth and backup, were installed by the original acer 32bit upgrade kit. These are the ones I need help with. When used they display a cool icon to notify you that they`ve been activated.

I`ve tried to get help from Acer but all they`ll offer is a set of disks for ?50 which contain the original vista setup and no info.

So is there anybody who`s managed to do it out there?

Here`s hoping, Stoo

A:Wifi button install

You are entitled to use either 32- or 64-bit kernel version with your Win7 license, no matter what Acer says. You only need to find a 64 bit installer for your version to clean reinstall from booted installer. It will activate with the Product Key on COA sticker which sometimes requires a robocall to MS to sort actual key from batch on sticker.

If you want to test 64 bit on that machine, you can shrink Win7 to install 64 bit from booted DVD to new partition. It will configure a Dual Boot so you can compare 64 bit up to 120 days: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-120-days.html

I believe the only way to keep factory utilities like you want is to do an in-place Upgrade from Vista to see if it will carry over. If you have a Recovery partition on the computer you could try running it after backing up a Win7 SYstem image externally to see if an in-place Upgrade from Vista will carry over the utilities as it should. But an in-place upgrade is an inferior install compared to a clean install which can also be done with the Acer Upgrade DVD as we did here on two Acer desktops. And you'd be limited to 32 bit which is all Acer offers apparently for your model.

If you find that the factory utilities cannot be carried over in-place by upgrading to Win7, then I would make the Recovery Disks off the Vista factory install and wipe the entire HD to clean reinstall Win7 in whichever bit kernel you decide upon. WE can help you with that here as it is a speciality.

Hi.
I have an issue with my Network Settings.  As I try to connect to the internet on the wifi in our marina, the WiFi button turns itself off and I get the message "WiFi Turned Off".  I didn't turn it off.  I go to network settings and turn it on (slider button).  It immediately flicks itself off again.  I didn't do it, it just does it itself.  This really, really, really irritates me.  If I wanted something that made decisions for me I'd buy an Apple.  I don't want it to do anything except what I want it to do.  Using a Realtek adapter.  Had a look at the device settings and though there seem to be 4 copies of this in there, none of them are grayed out and all report that they are working.  Why I need 4 is beyond me, though.
 
Anyone got any ideas?
 
If I have a good internet connection, this does not happen.  However, most marinas have garbage internet and this is where it happens.

A:Wifi button keeps turning off by itself

My guess is you have a physical switch for wifi on your laptop that is turned off, which is forcing the software in the laptop to turn off. Also make sure you laptop has power plugged in or atleast is fully charged. If it only happens on battery power, I can show later how to disable power options which might be forcing the wireless to turn off to conserve power. What model laptop do you have?
