Ubuntu Installation :: Need FN Key To Turn On Wireless HP Laptop

Sep 1, 2011

A few days ago I got a new HP laptop (model number dv7-6157cl), and my operating system wasn't able to recognize my wireless card (ralink 5390)

I downloaded the driver off of the ralink website, and successfully was able to install it (now when write the command "ifconfig" in my terminal, there's a paragraph about ra0), but my WiFi is still disabled. I think this is because I need to enable it using an "fn" key combination, but my laptop doesn't react to the combination to enable wifi.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Switch Inop Hp Zd7249cl Laptop - Wireless Button Wont Turn On

Jan 2, 2011

I have a hp zd7249cl laptop and have installed ubuntu 10.10 on it. The main problem I am having at the time is the wireless button will not turn on so there for I have no internet access. The switch works fine in windows, but not in ubuntu. The switch didn't work with the live cd either, but I thought it might after install. The wired card that is in the laptop is no good and quit working a couple of years ago so all I have is wireless now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Turn Laptop's Wireless On

May 5, 2010

I installed Kubuntu 10.04 on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv5-1010) and the networking was working fine for the most part, but then not sure what happened, the screen just kinda went blank so I restarted the laptop, and now the wireless won't turn on. There's a button on the laptop to turn it on and off, but I can't seem to get that to function in Linux. I'm assuming it's just a simple matter of getting the wireless to switch back on again, unfortunately I can't figure out how to do that .

Edit: I've tried to whole booting into windows and turning the wireless on there, and before that's worked, but it doesn't seem to be working this time around.

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Won't Turn On After Upgrade To Lucid?

May 16, 2010

I had ubuntu 9.10, and every time i turned on my computer it would prompt me to upgrade, so finally i did. I let it upgrade over last night, then finished it this morning. when it went to restart, it turned off fine, but when it came back on, the screen goes through the Gateway first thing where it shows like F10 for boot from etc, and then the screen goes to a black command line looking screen, then it says ubuntu for a second, and then the screen goes black and does nothing. i let it sit for about an hour to see if it was just running slow, but it was still black when i checked it, so now my laptop is useless until i figure something out.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Toshiba Laptop Turn Itself On After Few Minutes From Shutdown?

Oct 31, 2010

My Toshiba A300 laptop turns itself on after about 4 minutes from the shutdown. This doesn't happen with Win7. When it turns on, I shutdown using the power off button and it doesn't turn on again. I disabled all the wake options in the BIOS, also I uninstalled the ACPI, but this did not help. I also disabled the WOL in Ubuntu with "sudo ethtool -s eth0 wol d" before the shutdown, but this didn't helped too.

Software :: Turn Laptop Into A Usb Drive?

Jan 6, 2010

is there any way that I can make my Ubuntu Karmic powered laptop work as a giant USB drive when I connect it to another laptop for example. As a normal usb pen drive works, just plug it in, but now instead, my laptop would act as one. It would be perfect to have a folder which content would appear on the "virtual" usb drive when connected to something.

Fedora Networking :: Turn A Laptop Into A Range Extender?

Oct 7, 2009

Is there a way to turn a laptop, or any PC with a wifi network card, into a wifi range extender? Suppose I have the usual wifi router, but unfortunately the signal doesn't cover the whole house; a solution is a range extender, but I thought: if I have a laptop, placed in the same room where I would put that range extender, can't I use THAT as a range extender too? After all, range extender at the very heart are "stripped-down" routers, which in turn are stripped down PCs equipped with a stripped-down version of the Linux Kernel...

Ubuntu Installation :: Wireless Not Working On Mini-laptop / Resolve This?

Jan 3, 2011

New user to Linux. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to a mini-laptop, but the built-in wireless card/chip is not working. It worked under the previous OS, XP. There is a switch on the case frame that enables it, but the active light did not turn on during installation. I installed a second time and manually flicked the switch every one second to see if it needed human intervention, but to no avail.

My next step was to try to update Ubuntu to see if it would help, so I inserted a Belkin USB wireless, but the connection was intermittent at best. I believe the device is faulty. A wired connection is impossible as I am sharing with my neighbor. What should I do to help Ubuntu the internal wireless device?

Here is the output of lshw code...

Hardware :: Laptop Instant Death - Not Turn On Unless The Battery Is Removed

Dec 14, 2010

Lately, my laptop has been encountering instant death. Completely powers off, the end, good night. This happens a couple times a day. After these deaths, the laptop will not turn on unless the battery is removed, the A/C power cord is unplugged, and then both components are put back in. Judging from this, I think I need a new battery and possibly a new power cable. Buying new ones for my laptop, though, comes out to about $100, and I'm informed that my particular laptop model has been known to have some issues. (It's an ASUS x83v)

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Card Will Not Turn On In 11.4

Aug 15, 2011

First of all, trying to install it was a disaster as it tried to format my DVD drive and I was forced to delete my Windows partitions too. That's not why I'm writing, just thought I'd mention that I was already frustrated to begin with

Anyway, I have an HP G62-340US laptop. Everything seems to be running great except that I cannot turn on my wireless. The laptop has a key on the keyboard to power up the wifi and it's permanently off. Not sure if this is an issue with the keyboard driver, but pressing the wifi key does nothing.

I've tried scanning the hardware to determine what wifi device I have, but since it's not powered up, Linux doesn't even see it.

Any ideas which direction I should look?

As a side note, I have used Linux fairly regularly for several years. Mostly Ubuntu, LinuxMint and PinguyOS (all debian-based). So I'm not a complete newbie and am perfectly comfortable with the command line and configuration files.

Fedora Hardware :: Built-in Laptop Speakers Don't Auto-mute / Turn Off

Jun 6, 2010

I have a few problems with my sound. First off, I don't know exactly what chip it is, but my laptop is an Acer Aspire 6530 running a fully updated Fedora 13. Sound itself works, but that's about as far as it goes.So, here are my problems:Built-in laptop speakers don't auto-mute/turn off whenever something it plugged into the headphones jack.Microphone doesn't seem to work, both the one next to my webcam as well as any mic attached to the mic jack. The webcam itself works fine.I would be really happy if I could get these issues fixed. I was so impressed that I made Fedora my only OS on my laptop, but fixing a few more things would be even better.

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - After Update Systemd Turn Off Laptop Screen On Boot

Sep 25, 2015

I decided to update all the software on my computer. Fortunately, it upgraded kernel version 3.14 to 3.16. I was happy to learn that suspend now worked on my laptop by calling pm-suspend, but it did not worked by closing the lid. So I search and found on debian's website that installing systemd and adding some config lines in /etc/systemd/logind.conf would sove the issue. So I followed the procedure and did like instructed, to end up with a computer that boots on black screen.

The last verbrose line I see on boot up is "kvm disabled by bios" and then it shutdown down the screen. The computer works, as I can login and shutdown by doing those operation blindly.

I tried removing systemd but it still does not work. If I use the old kernel 3.14 I can boot without any problem, but if I use kernel 3.16, I boot to a black screen. I remember successfully booting in 3.16 before installing systemd.

Ubuntu Networking :: Fn F3 Not Working To Turn On Wireless?

Aug 4, 2010

Ubuntu 10.4 LTS as a Live CD (intend to dual boot later, testing for now.) Laptop : Acer Aspire 5251-1513 Wireless card: Atheros AR928X PCI-Express

To turn this on in Windows, I have to do Fn F3. But it does not work in Ubuntu. Most of the other Fn keys work, sound, screen, brightness. Found some relative info, but nothing that might be certain

Now, I know there are some issues with that Artheros card, but I think i need to first get it activated.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card Will Not Turn On

Jan 10, 2011

I have an HP Compaq 6735s with a Broadcom 802.11 a/b/g draft-n wireless card that I've been running 9.10 (the karmic koala one I think it was called) on for the past 7 or 8 months (been running Ubuntu in general for the last couple years). The card won't turn on--the indicator light is always orange, not blue as it should be. I thought it might be a hardware problem so I took it to a shop, but they tested it several times and said the card was fine and that upgrading my software should solve the problem.

I just upgraded it to the 10.10 distro (usually a friend did my upgrades for me but alas that's no longer an option) but that has not fixed it. I thought to try and re-download the Broadcom drivers on a different computer, then transfer them to my laptop, but when I did that and tried to open the .exe file, a message popped up saying the file was no good. (Can you tell I'm not a computer pro yet? Haha) Any idea how I could fix this or what the problem might be? I'm really frustrated as it's been an issue for the last six months, plus this is my only computer and I need it to function fully for purposes of finding a job, etc. If I could I'd just buy a different computer at this point (really disappointed with HP laptops in general) but sadly that's not an option. I'm to the point where I'd consider running Windows again just to make the damn thing work.
