Problem with my built in wireless
\015 I have a Toshiba Tecra M2 (PTM20U-4MP19-EN) which has a built in wireless. My computer crashed so I have had a new hard drive fitted last week but now when I try to use my wireless connection the telewest cable wireless cannot find my wireless on my laptop. I am unable to search for wireless connection either, its as though there is no wireless on my laptop anymore. The problem is definately with my laptop because my sons laptop has not been effected. could you please help me. I am currently using the etheridge cable to use the internet. Thank you\015
You'll need to visit Toshiba's site to locate and download the wireless drivers for your model. Reinstall the drivers and you'll have your wireless access again.

I have a Hp Pavilion Dv8000t that is running extremely hot. I am very concerned with this laptop that is having the heat problems. Especially with Minors using it. I have complained before about the heat problem while it was under warranty and all they said to do was buy a "Chill Mat" and that isn't really fixing the problem. In my research I have been finding others have had this same problem, that the laptop running at dangerously high temperatures. What would be the best way to contact HP to

Wireless internet My HP Pavilion dv6000 has wireless built in as i'm sure you are aware. Having never had a problem with it before, today i left the computer for a matter of minutes.

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
