Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Little or no connectivity

\015 I haven't changed any settings or done anything really - yet when I turned on the computer on Saturday I got a message that I had 'little or no connectivity' to the internet and can't get service. I tried turning the modem off and back on as well as the computer. I believe the hardware is working but I must have a software issue. The IP address (the computer is set to getting IP address automatically) seems to be one given automatically and not a real one.\015\012Any help out there?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
