I am having an issue upgrading the proc and RAM in my Lenovo t440p (20ANS04504) notebook. I have done the following: 1. Removed power cord2. Removed battery3. Discharged static and wore an anti-static wristband4. Held the power button down for 30 seconds5. Removed the fan/unlocked the processor unit6. Removed the original processor unit7. Installed the new processor unit8. Locked the processor unit9. Screwed the fan back in10. Powered the notebook up When I power up, the power button remains lit (green) for 5 seconds then powers off. There is no error code nor a prompt for ThinkPad setup. When a swap the old processor back, I am able to boot. I've also done this same process when adding RAM. I get the same issue. I did research and received confirmation from forums, vendor and Lenovo FRU guides that I ordered the correct parts. The fact that this issue occurs when I swap either the RAM or processor leads me to believe that there may be a internal setting that I need to modify.Here are details of each part New RAM:MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E18GB 2RX8 PC3L-12800S-11-11-FPDPAE6RW011 Old RAM: MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E18GB 2RX8 PC3L-12800S-11-11-FPDPAE2CE013 New Processor: Intel Core i7 Processori7-4900MQ, 2.8GHz, 8MB CacheProduct Code: BX80647I74900MQS-spec: SR15KS/N: 2W305002A1436Batch: J307A421Old Processor:Code on actual part: 11S0C62669ZVJ8CC46H0MWFRU: 04X4051 Notebook:Lenovo t440p (20ANS04504) I've tried modifying the ThinkPas Setup config to to the follow...

Hi, I hope someone can help.

I would like to know what would be the best (fastest) 5Ghz card I could replace mine with to get 2Ghz, 5Ghz and Bluetooth 4.0. I also understand that I may also have to replace the Antenna as mine only has one as far as I can see but if it can be upgraded without doing this (by only having 5Ghz and BT 4.0), that would be OK. I have looked at other posts but it seems certain parts only fit certain machines so I am a bit confused as to what adapter I need for the best results. I already have the service manual for my model and of the three cards it lists on page 43 none of those are actually in my machine, the one that is fitted in my machine is part number 792204-001 (as stated above) and it does not even show up in a search of the manual. I have read on other posts that if my machine has an intel processor then any intel card should work (as long as it has the same connections I presume) and as for HP support they do not help as the part the have put in the machine is not even listed in the manual. So, am I forced to use one of the cards li...

I have a refurbished Lenovo Y40 and I am happy with everything except the wireless card. It is an intel ac-3160 card but right out of the box it had many problems. Internet signal drops off significantly when I am more than 5 feet away from the router.

I know this is normal but my computer's internet speeds die down significantly faster than other computers with the same wireless card. For example, at around 15-20 feet away, this computer will have 0.5-1 mb speeds while a different lenovo (same card) will have around 8-9 mb.

I want to try buying a new wireless card such as the intel-7260 or a new intel-3160. Does anyone know how to make sure my computer is compatible with the 7260? I have read an article about checking the "BIOS whitelist" to see if it's compatible (Page Not Found (404) - CNET

Anyone have suggestions or tips?

A:Upgrading intel wireless card

What router do you have? Upgrading the card or going with a USB adapter is not necessarily going to change something or improve signal if you are using a public hot spot at say a College or University dorm.

The antenna is usually on the upper left side of the lid. My son swaps between his Intel Wireless-ac dual-band 7260 and a Netgear A6200 USB adapter, depending on where he is at on his school campus.

He has 1000/1000 so sticking to the 2.4 is not an option. The card that's present in his computer is the Intel Wireless-N 7260, and apparently there's two cards with the same name. I ran netsh wlan show drivers in the command prompt and everything except 802.11a showed up. But!

We will need the full model number to be 100% sure but I believe you are not limited by the HP whitelist.  802.11a operates on 5ghz but what you really want is 802.11ac.

Ahh, HP. How times have changed. I've been using HP for many many years and it seems to get worse with every product I buy. First my DV9000 has a GPU failure. Then my 8560p has a GPU failure. So, I get a new notebook, whatever was the best one in stock at my local Staples, since I needed one fast. Ended up with this 15-ac144ND. i7 CPU, Dedicated radeon card, 8 Gigs of ram, full HD matte screen, and a bottom of the barrel wireless card. No 5Ghz, no AC, no bluetooth. Whatever, wireless cards cost $20 and take 10 minutes to install. Or so I thought. After downloading the service manual, I see the Intel 3165 listed as an option for the wireless card in my machine. It would fit my needs and is readily available. Since the service manuals are usually full of sh*t, I decide to ask HP Support. They verify with their resources that yes, the Intel 3165 is 100% compatible with my machine and I can go ahead with the upgrade. I get my 3165 yesterday and guess what? Doesn't work. I put it in and the computer acts like there is nothing in the slot at all. Not detected in device manager (and before you ask, yes, i did try all the drivers I could think of) nor is it detected in the BIOS. Whatever, might be a dead card right? After all, I didn't get any BIOS errors telling me there's an incompatible wireless card installed. So why won't it detect?

A:Upgrading your wireless card Y510p to Wifi AC

Modding BIOS voids warranty so if you bricked your laptop or some hardware malfunction occured after the modded BIOS flash, Lenovo won't repair your laptop. Try uninstalling the Proset drivers and then remove all of the drivers in the device manager by checking "delete driver software..." while unistalling the WiFi card drivers. Youll then be running Microsoft's 14.8.8.75 which gives stable WiFi.

Hi mate

Usually the notebook supports the miniPCI WLan module. This means that usually the other miniPCI WLan cards should work but I read also here in the forum that this is not always the case and sometimes other miniPCI WLan card would not me recognized properly?.

But why you don?t try a simple solution like a USB WLan stick?
This is the simplest and in my opinion the best solution for you.
You will not need to disassemble the notebook. This means that there is no risk of any damage and you will not cancel the warranty?

Therefore I recommend trying this solution.

Hello, I tried finding an existing thread for this none address my issue. Here's the scoop: I was doing an upgrade and when I removed the wifi card, the little wires came right off on their own with no effort on my part. It seems now that the wires will not connect back to the board. I can't even see how they would connect and stay on, looks like they've been just sitting there all this time but working. So question is, how do I get the little wires back onto the board? If something's broken, I'll need a card replacement but what about the wire ends? Will I have to replace the two wires also and I'm not sure where the wires go to the other end or if they can be replaced? Just how were the wires connected to the board before? Is there a preferable brand and model of card I should use? This one is H17087-001. I know I sound like an amateur because honestly I am and this is only second laptop upgrade. The first was an HP.

I have a T440p with Windows 10 Pro and have no problem with Wake on LAN (WoL) with an ethernet cord plugged, but have been unable to get Wake on Wireless LAN (WoWLAN) to work. It has the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 which does support WoWLAN and I've got the appropriate settings for the wireless adapter selected.  When I posted on the Intel board, they said that WoWLAN support is also dependent on support from the motherboard and suggested I check with Lenovo. Has anyone had any success getting WoWLAN to work?

Seems the Realtek 2x2 11bgn Wirelss **bleep** M2 Adapter that came with the T440P cannot work with 5Ghz ? I have seen articles claiming that the card cannot be replaced and others suggesting it can (but only if on a Whitelist ?).  Anybody know the answer to this? And assuming I can change the card, any recommendations ?

I've managed to upgrade some of my home PC's from Win 7 or Win 8 to Wn 10 without any significant problems, but I am having major difficulty upgrading one of my PC's.

It is running Win 7 Home 32-bit and when I originally ran the Windows 10 upgrade advisor, it indicated that I could not upgrade as my NVidia GEForce 6600 graphics card was incompatible with Windows 10.

I tried various workarounds, using suggestions on this and other sites, to upgrade with the GEForce card but none were successful. So I purchased and installed a new graphics card - an AMD Radeon R7 240, which should be Win 10 compatible.

I then re-ran the Win 10 upgrade advisor - it still said that I couldn't upgrade as the "GeForce 6600 card" was incompatible - even though it was no longer installed!

I checked the Device Manager and the graphics card was clearly showing as being the AMD card. I then explicitly uninstalled any NVidia drivers/software using the Control Panel/Program uninstall - still unable to upgrade to Win 10. I also ran the Wagnard tools "Display driver uninstaller" and removed any NVidia software/drivers - still unable to upgrade. I am using the latest drivers from the AMD website.

I also tried to upgrade using the Media Creation tool and a Win 7 image from DVD (previously this also failed to work and gave the incompatible graphics card error); this seemed to work up to a point, but after a reboot it wanted me to select a keyboard layout but neither my usb keyboard no...

Hey all!  I've been looking to update the graphics card on my Dell XPS 8700 from a GTX 645 to a GTX 1050 Ti Nvidia graphics card.   Everything I looked at says it checks out:
-PCIE x16 card compatible with  PCI- Express x16 card slot
- 1.5 Width (Dual Slot Width) x 5.7 Length x 4.38 Height graphics card should fit in PC (original dimensions for the GTX 645 are 4.376 Height, 5.7 Length, Single Slot width).   Only problem I can see here is the width for the 1050 is dual slot while the original has a single slot width.  However, there should be enough space right?  
- 75W power draw with a 460W PSU.   Here is another (unlikely) potential problem.  I have no idea how much power everything else is drawing so I don't know how much spare power I have.   However, seeing as the 645 has a max power draw of 65 W, I think I'm fine since that's only a 10 W difference
 
Does anybody see any problems with my logic/anything that I'm missing?  Thanks all and have a great day.

you MUST upgrade BIOS to A10 for Win7/81 or A11 for Win10 for GTX 9x0 or higher and all GTX 10x0 cards as well.
What software are you running? If gaming at 1920x1080 resolution a GTX 1060 is perhaps the "best' option for an XPS 8700. The 8700 will easily fit a dual width card and the 1060 is the right mix of lots of graphics card, but it doesn't need a ton of power to run it.
The motherboard provides up to 75W via the PCIe slot, and extra power comes from the two six pin PCIe power connectors if the card needs more power.
Some GTX 1060 cards need a single 8 pin connector and the solution is a very low cost adapter ( $ 8.00 on eBay)

i am upgrading from nvidia 5200fx to 5500fx.....my games are skipping quite a bit(command and conquer generals), and my pc is working alot of overtime. my problem is that when i switched out the old agp card and popped in the new one, my dell monitor would not turn on under any circumstances. however, the monitor works fine with the old agp card and with the onboard graphics if both agp cards are absent. i have tried EVERYTHING. from updating the bios, to switching the ram around, to uninstalling the old drivers and shutting down, then installing new card, but still not able to get into windows. i tried booting into safe mode, but i cant see the screen to do so.
im very frustrated, out of options almost. my pc is almost top of the line. pentium 4, 3.0ghz, 512ddr ram, 80gb hd. The only possibility i can think of that could be wrong is too much power for the supply, which i find hard to believe.....
any suggestions are very welcome......please help! :dead:

Hi
About all I will say is that the diff between a 5200 and a 5500 is not really noticeable in games, you need to get a 58/5900 or a 66/6800 to see any improvement. Sorry.

Hi
decided after waiting a month to upgrade from 7/10, all went well and installed only to find that no wireless networks are available and no amount of trying can get them back.
googled the problem and all 4 of the first listed solutions are the same command prompt.
now i havent a clue about command prompt but did as instructed and started command prompt admin.

then the following instruction

reg delete HKCRCLSID {988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va/ f

now of course have tried writing reg then delete with a space and also regdelete without a space, the result is always the same

reg delete or regdelete is not a recognized command

ther is a further short command to make after but as the first one doesnt work then that has not been proceeded with
and their you have it, spend 99.99 upgrade to win 10 and find you have no wireless internet and no networks to choose from etc

its a great pity that microsoft didnt warn us that this happens on an awful lot of upgrades.

google claims its all the fault of previous vpn,s. though i have never ever gone down that route, just seems like blame making for the sake of it.

if anyone knows of a solution before i revert to win7 would be obliged.
needless to say microsoft have their much vaunted upgrade but do not reply to this problem

pretty sure someone heir will know how

many thanks

I have a Linksys Wireless-G router in my home to network both my desktops (through Ethernet) as well as two laptops. I want to replace the router with a wireless-N to increase the range, since we often lose our wireless connection. If I get the wireless-N router, do I have to upgrade all of my desktops and laptops with wireless-N cards or USB adapters to get the full advantage of the N-router?

Thanks,

Hi everyone.

I've recently heard about the benefits of upgrading from a G Wireless Router to a N Wireless Router.
I am particularly interested in upgrading becuase I do have a G Wireless Router, I have quite a lot of network devices using the internet constantly and sometimes it seems very sluggish. ( I have tried to solve this by changing the channel, it helped a bit but I think it can be better.)

I would like to know if upgrading would simply mean plugging the router in and changing a few settings in a new G Wireless Router to work with my existing ISP or if this process would be a bit more complicated.

My ISP was originally Telstra Clear then we were moved to Vodafone. In the end we decided to completely upgrade to one of Vodafone's plans which made us a Vodafone Customer. Since we were not with Vodafone before, they haven't upgraded are wireless router but they have upgraded are modem. We get our internet through cable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Upgrading to a N Wireless Router?

The benefits are substantially better than G wireless in every single way, but what could be even better is dual bandwidth wireless routers(2.4 and 5GHz), they broadcast these bandwidths together at the same time effectively giving you the option to switch if lots of devices are using wireless and performance is sluggish on the 2.4GHz bandwidth, hope this helps.

Hi,

I just bought a netgear rangemax next ADSL2+ wireless modem. I also have Belkin pre-N wireless modem from before. Now the Belkin is working ok (Even though it disconnects every now & then) but when i remove it (Unplug it) and try to install the Netgear rangemax from the CD provided, it doesn't detect my ISP connection and tells me there is no connection detected. I returned the Belkin and it still works!

Is there any obvious thing i am missing here ?? Is there any special way to remove a previous modem to install a new one??

Thanks in advance for your help and looking forward to see some replies

Upgrading laptops to wireless N
I am told you can replace the wireless adapter in laptops and looking at my own the unit looks as if it is easy to remove and replace.
Has anyone done this and does anyone know where to purchase the upgrade cards? Are they a standard item sold by the networking equipment suppliers or are they unique to the laptop they are supplied with?
Are they called mini PCI cards?

Hey guys, we had DSL for many years, I have a detached garage about 30' from the back of our house, I always used to get good enough wireless signal strength from my pc in the garage. Last year we upgraded to Verizon FIOS and the wireless was working ok since then but for a few months now I am only sometimes able to get to the net with the same pc. First thing I am thinking I need to do is to see if anyone is logging on to our network which may be causing the low signal strength? If yes, how can I do so please or what should I do to get back the to the net please?

Hi, I hope someone can help. I have a HP Pavilion Gaming Notebook 15 AK0085NA which has an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz running Win 10, it is a reasonably good spec machine but as many HP owners dicsover it is only capable of 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi as it comes shipped with a Wireless LAN card - RT SANJI BGN 1x1 BT4 CB (part number 792204-001), this I know as I have had a look inside the machine. I would like to know what would be the best (fastest) 5Ghz card I could replace mine with to get 2Ghz, 5Ghz and Bluetooth 4.0. I also understand that I may also have to replace the Antenna as mine only has one connection as far as I can see but if it can be upgraded without doing this (by only having 5Ghz and BT 4.0), that would be preferable. I have looked at other posts but it seems certain parts only fit certain machines eg, the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2x2 Network plus Bluetooth adapter has different connections so I am a bit confused as to what adapter I need for the best results. If I need to supply any more info please ask. Thanks.

Hi All:

I am finally getting around to upgrading my wireless network from "G" to "N" and I have a couple of questions.

From my understanding the "N" wireless routes are backwards compatible with the "G" and "B" networks. Does this happen automatically and seemlessly in the background or do I have to set something for this to happen? The reason I ask is I have three computers in my house and they are a mix of "N" and "G" wireless protocols.

My second question is what sets the protocol? I have a new WIN 7 laptop that can run at either "G" or "N" speeds and I have an older laptop that is limited to the "G" speeds. Will my WIN 7 laptop automatically select the "N" protocol? I am believing that my older laptop will by default run at the older "G" speeds.

I also have a desktop computer that is connecting wirelessly to my network via a USB dongle type antenna. The USB antenna is listed as "G" or "N" capable so will the antenna automatically set the higher "N" speed or do I have to hack the settings or is it limited by the actual computer the antenna is connected to?

Is there anything else I need to know in order to make this happen? Thanks.
 

A:Upgrading Wireless Network

Just check the wireless mode on the router. Most have choices including n only, g/n mixed, b/g/n mixed, etc. You want g/n mixed.
