Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

V2300 cto follow up 16 nov 2008

\015 Hi FRCS68,\015\012I wrote earlier about my HDD brand. I donot know whether you got that mail? It is Fujitsu MHV2060AT PL 60 gb . I downloaded a software for fujitsu hard disk diagnostics and tried it on my v2300, I tried the bios hdd test. It passed all both the quick and extended hd tests in both the software. I also noticed this time, a whole list of software which used to install automatically on windows xp home reinstall, like PCI device, Mass storage controllers, 1394 and especially the intel pro 2200 dont get installed. When I try to uninstall the improperly( with the yellow question mark next to it) installed intelpro wireless card I get a new warning that windows could not uninstall because it may be needed for boot up.\015\012That kind of confirms my suspicion this card is preventing normal boot up leading to the f1 f2 error..\015\012As I said in my post, the blue tooth device is enabled all the time but the wireless is not many times. Now I am trying to install the xp when (if) the wireless card is also enabled in bios. The problem is when I save settings and restart I donot know if the wireless card is enabled at that time.\015\012Is there any way I can force the xp installation without rebooting when I am in bios display and I know that the wireless card has been enabled? or make the laptop go to directly boot from cd? (I have changed the boot order to cd rom anyway.\015\012Thanks for any help you can give.\015

Answers :

Wireless card enabled in BIOS is only telling the machine there is a wireless card other than what was buildin on the mother board.
\015\012The wireless will not work without the driver. I don't think you need to worry about the wireless when you installing the XP operting system.
\015\012first download the wirelss drive and store it on a CD of other media.
\015\012once you have finished the installation. You can install the driver for the wireless, then goto HP.com and download the drivers as you needed them.
\015\012My suggestion is install XP as fresh installation, it is much easier and faster, if you don't have any thing on the machine you need to save.
\015\012the change you made is fine, the machine should boot up from the CD. it may not happen the first time,but it will the second time.
