As mentioned, the pin of the AC adapter embedded into the laptop is verrry loose, which leads me speculate maybe a bad solder point or similar eletrical internal issue. I’m guessing you’ll see the exact same scenario, and this will let you know clearly that it’s not a DC jack issue. You’ll have to tear down the machine for a detailed examination to deterimine if the jack is faulty or not. Always on the go- No more worries about running out of battery power!

Wireless Drivers HP Pavilion – Hardware – Ubuntu MATE Community

Under Network adaptersplease tell me all the devices listed. Anyone talked to customer support in regard to this?

Tried different routers, LAN-Express drivers, different channels, with and without encryption etc etc. Thu Mar 23, 2: Select “install for a list or specific location” this time ze55400 click next.

Flaunt Corps FaridabadHaryana 3. Another laptop with a HP WLAN 54g W adapter in the same room always has very high signal strength and no throughput or connection problems.

Sounds like my best course of action.

We have tried updating drivers and that doesn’t seem to help much. I also have the same problem.


HP Pavilion ZE5400 – Its dead, Jim !

I noticed that there haven’t been any messages posted on this thread in almost a year, so I wondered if everyone gave up on the problem or if there was a solution found that never was posted.

Win 98SE File Version: The time now is I disagree with it being soley a DC jack problem. Click the browse button and go to the directory where you saved your new driver. Re-attaching the one thats there will probably ze55400 be possible, not as a permanent fix anyway, as the jack’s housing is probably damaged.

Assuming you have downloaded and installed the driver normally HP dump the installation files on C: HP didn’t have any more ideas left up their sleeve except to reimage the laptop.

Scott, I ahve no solution, however I experience the same on my zeus pavilion notebook. My other computers show high signal strength. So even though wireless board is getting a ‘power on’ signal, there may not be enough juice into the adapter end to satisfy a full POST of the board?

As mentioned, the pin of the AC adapter embedded into the laptop is verrry loose, which leads me speculate maybe a bad solder point or similar eletrical internal issue.

If it was, I don’t think it would power up at wirless, it should be mostly all or none, and you would be able to get the unit to shut down by jiggling the jack if it was a loose connection. I’d be more concerned with either other components being broken, or maybe the one of the chipsets’ soldering being questionable.


That its loose at all means at least one of the contacts for it is loose or broken.
