  • Satellite Pro A40 fell on the wireless network card; Damaged PCMCIA slot

    This morning my Satellite Pro A40 (Celeron 2.6) fell 40 cm. He fell right on the wireless network card that has been inserted. This card is still alive and so is the rest of the laptop, but the PCMCIA location is little damaged. I can insert PC cards almost completely, just the last piece (when the pins are) wrong.

    I removed the cover near the CPU, and there, I could see the inside PCMCIA slot; I could see the main part and the last part where the pins are. That little part as is pushed upward, as you can see in the pictures.

    I think I'd be able to fix myself this PCMCIA slot, but I can't remove it. I removed all the screws on the rear plate, but he is still blocked.


    PCMCIA slot

    The PCMCIA location; on the left, you will see the part with the pins, which is pushed upward. It's also what I see when I look at the pins in the PCMCIA slot. as they are pushed down, but I don't think they are folded.

    Wireless network card

    Wireless network card; It is a little damaged but it still works.

    Does anyone have an idea how I can remove the back plate, or another way to remove the PCMCIA slot and fix it?

    Hi Steve

    Well, I can give t well you not answer how you can just remove the PCMCIA slot.
    There are a lot of screws and to my knowledge, it is necessary to remove all covers and screws that are placed at the bottom of the unit and inside under the keyboard.
    Please check this specific device. Perhaps you have overlooked a few screws.

    But if it is impossible to remove the PCMCIA slot of the unit, I recommend to ask the service partner for a detailed instruction.

    Good luck

  • Can satellite M65-S9092 - I put the wireless network card?


    Can I put my card Intel pro 2200BG on Satellite M65-S9092 wireless network so that it is no longer compatible with Windows 7? The Intel Pro 2200BG is no longer supported by Intel as it was abandoned and so they have not issued a new driver so that IPv6 works.

    So I would update my card if possible.

    Thanks in adavnce



    I think that it shouldn't be a problem to upgrade the WLan card.
    As far as I know its a card wireless network of miiPCI and you would need to also use a WLan card which would support the miniPCI interface.

    The wireless network card supports two pins for the WLan antenna cable.
    Usually, you must connect a white cable to the HAND and a black to the auxiliary voltage

    All that s

  • Satellite A30-104: WLan not available - I turn on the wireless network card

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A30-104 with an inprocomm ipn2220 built in wireless card. The problem I'm having is that when I get a network says its not available and asks me to turn it on.

    The driver is installed for the card, the switch for the wireless is set on you and I pressed FN & F8 and yet led remains off and nothing happens.
    I watched autour and seen that some people cover the terminals 11 and 13 and it works but not too sure.

    I also should this problem with a new card or is there a way to fix this?

    Any help much appreciated.


    I guess that you upgraded the wireless lan card later, didn t you? I know that 11 + 13 pins hint and it worked, but after awhile the card did not and the connection quality was so poor that I bought a card atheros on ebay and this card works really well. So I suggest that you are looking for a card atheros on ebay and to install such card in your system since the cards are known to work properly in the toshiba machines.

  • ProBook 4520 s - exchange of the wireless network card

    Hello everyone.

    I think the exchange of the wireless network card in my Probook 4520 s, due to the low flow.
    So I searched for a while a 5 Ghz supporting the card and found out that I am only able to get in the "white" cards list working. Then I looked at this page: & CC = US & objectid = c02487851 & jumpi...

    These cards can be any, that have been used in 4520 s. Mine (according to the Device Manager) is the Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n. This thing only supports 2.4 Ghz. Now, I looked at the list for a 5 Ghz supporting the card. I think that the 802.11A/B/G/N WLAN Intel HMC 572520-001 minicards can operate on 5 Ghz, because I read, that A appears only with maps of 2.4/5 Ghz. I read too, that maps of 2.4 / 5 GHz have 3 antennas, but on this card I only the slots for 2. Is this good? And this card would go into my 4520 s?



    Hi, colony:

    You are right about your statement about the cards being described as A/B/G/N dual-band.

    The best thing to do is look at Chapter 3 of your service manual.

    You can only order one of the cards listed as supported and it MUST have the HP reference on it or it won't work.

    I see only two possibilities for you...

    The 6200 Intel and Broadcom 4322.  Make sure you also get the part # that corresponds to what country you live.

    If your current Broadcom card has integrated Bluetooth, you will lose your Bluetooth capability if you order an integrated HP bluetooth module and probably the cable too.

    None of the dual-band cards have embedded bluetooth.

    Link to the service manual.

    Then, you can order a card on the link below.

    If you do not live in the United States, you can change your country at the top of the page to yours.

    I downnloaded and installed the latest drivers.

    I have restored the default settings.

    All of HP's instructions seem to be for a newer printer with a touchscreen.

    I want that the printer is connected to my main computer via the USB port.  I want to be able to print wireless phones and tablets.

    My 3520 is not a 'touch Screen' and it has wifi.

    However, the following work:

    Try to open the HP Deskjet 3520 icon, open the utilities tab, click on convert USB wireless, by following the steps on the screen.

    This leads me to believe that ONLY the wireless doesn't work.  I know now that the part of the sentence "Convert USB to wireless connection" is supposed to mean "works like USB and wireless.

    What the BIOS has been installed on your laptop?
    If you use the Toshiba BIOS so there could be an option called configuration of the device.
    (it s is available on my Satellite)

    You change the option for all devices, you will be able to change the PC Card controller mode. I think you should play a little with this option.
    In other cases, the user was able to resolve a similar issue by changing this option.

    Please report if you re successful because it would be very interesting for me.

  • Impossible to activate my wireless network card in Windows 7 Home Basic 32-bit

    I have a Dell Inspiron 10 netbook with a wireless adapter, but are unable to activate.  When I go on "Change adapter settings" and click on enable, it passes through the clearance process and says "Enabled", but when the "Activé" message disappears, the adapter says still "Disabled", and I can't access my network.  I have other computers connected to the wireless network, so I know that the router/network is OK.  I checked the services and autoconfiguration WLAN service is set to automatic and is started.  I also did the TCP/IP stack reset twice.

    What can I do to fix this?

    Hi reda,.

    Thank you for your kind response.  Unfortunately, I had already tried all these things before making my post above, but would not allow the adapter.  I have also installed and tried that failed on another computer, with the same results; could not enable.  As a corollary, that I plugged a different usb (type dongle) wireless adapter I have on another computer, and it worked perfectly, so I came to the conclusion that the card is defective, has contacted the seller (Newegg) and got a RMA number.  Then, I ordered another mini adapter of the same brand as that worked.

  • Tecra A10 - 12O: installing the driver network card in Windows Server 2003 R2 Std


    I received 6 laptop Tecra A10 - 12O, and we need to install Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition with SP2 in all these six machines. Windows Server 2003 has been installed perfectly, but now we have only the network LAN card to work but we are unable to install its driver. When I installed Windows XP from the supplied DVD for Toshiba, it says Intel 82567V Gigabit network adapter. I tried to download the drivers for this adatpor of drivers Toshiba, Intel Web site, but it will not install in Windows Server 2003. I also tried manually force to choose and install a driver from the list, I choose that it will install but shows yellow question mark in Device Manager means that it does not work with this driver.

    I also tried the same Intel 82567V drivers from some sites non-Toshiba, of these models using the same network card, but is not truck drivers at all.

    I understand these laptop computers does not support Windows Server 2003, but these were ordered to be used as servers with Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition and I am required to make the Installer only with activated and installed network adapter.

    I try last week and exhausted all means to get the installed network adapter driver, but all have failed. Can someone please help with this? All support will be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.


    Hey Buddy

    If I m not wrong Windows Server 2003 uses the same drivers as Win XP and I guess that it s driver problem not a LAN, but perhaps also the problem of Windows Server 2003 installed.

    You are right; the LAN chip seems to be Intel 82567V and the LAN driver downloaded from Intel page should work 100%.

    In your case, I would recommend installing the chipset driver.
    Remove the LAN card from Device Manager, then restart the laptop.
    Then go back to Device Manager and update driver in pointing devices Manager to the place where the driver downloaded LAN was stored on the HARD drive.
